notalush (4824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Fizzy, clear golden, frothy lace - nose of dusty, dry, biscuity malts, some phenolic character, light tartness - taste is light, biscuity, flinty. crackery, peppery - some underlying sweetness - I usually like most of these characteristics in a beer, but this is beer is too strong for its light and crisp flavors, because a strong, boozy/alcoholic character dominates in the long term, and the other qualities of the beer are too delicate and/or weak to support this - alcoholic finish, lingering dry malts - meh.

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma has lots of yeastiness, sugar, light fruit, and a hint of spice. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small whtie head that fades to nothing rather quickly. Flavors of orange peel, light apple, yeast and a spicey finish. Candi sugar present in the background. A tad thin.

Actually smells somewhat wheaty. Clear orange but with floaties. The first thought with flavor is that this must have a lot of alcohol, as it shines through. Some nice citrus and floral hops, and definitely lots of belgian sugar, it’s okay, but seems too strong.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Dog & Pony Alehouse in Renton, WA. Lasting white foam head with a mildly cloudy amber body. Nose is mellow with hops and marzipan. A hoppy front tongue is backed by a flavour of whiskey malt base. Good.

nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2010
22oz bomber. Hazy, unfiltered golden-tan color. Thin, steady off white head. Sweet, sugary Belgified aroma. Doesn’t really do the style justice, very par to sub-par US version. A little bit thick, chewy, with some clove-like balance. Rich, with some alcohol laced fruit tones..banana, orange, tangerine. Lacks the effervescent mouthfeel and delicacy that can make the style great. Sort of goes for an Orval like thing, but doesn’t quite get there. OK.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Poured a clear light golden amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was yeasty with light clove and spice. Notes of bubble gum, flowers, oranges and a yeasty leather funk that was noticeable as the beer warmed. the flavor was malty and fruity with light tart lemony notes. Sweet and yeasty. Acidic finish with a lively mouthfeel.

Tap @ Saraveza... Poured golden with a white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of esters and spices. Medium body and very drinkable. Flavors of clove, yeast esters, banana and sweet spices.
