A.K.A. Singing Blond. Pours a fogged in orange gold with a thin creme head. Mild sour nose. Fruit is also there. At first when I poured it I wanted to say it was apricots. But alas we have moved on to minor funk. Flavor is superb. Smooth. Mature fruit tones and sweetness. A slightly firm acidity barely appears. Minor funky. It’s all mixed and mashed together beautifully though and seems to go funky on my mouth one time and then fruity the next. Just clings to the next bit of character and you get a real smooth ride of flavor. Feel has a carbonation that bites too much at the tongue, but it isn’t enough to interfere with the flavor. Damn. This is good. I mean, really good.

seynie (342) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2016
Despite the heavy carbonation, no head to speak of. Dark gold otherwise. Alcohol, watery peach, malt, some yeast. Quite sweet in the finish, but still watery. Not very impressive

JPDIPSO (5569) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Slight gusher. Hazed golden liquid with a tall fizzy head that diminishes rather slowly, relatively speaking. A nice flow of tiny bubbles continues. A siren type brew, at least from the label image. Heavy sweet fruity aromas with fermented berries, grapes and other light fruit. Some vinegar and sourness is in the mix as well. Some heavy alcohol notes. 6/10

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pudgy little 12 ounce bottle. I rolled it and got some sediment loose but there was a lot more on the bottom of the bottle. Cloudy golden beer with active carbonation and chunks of that sediment. A noisy white head doesn’t last long. Lots of rich fruit in the aroma with some spice. That fruit is tasted. Peach and citrus with yeast. Alcohol is evident. The flavor is robust and it drinks like an alcoholic fruit drink.

mike_77 (5290) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Dark blond with thin head. Aroma is quite bready and also has sweet sugary fruits. Flavour is in general too sweet. Bready malts and a little yeast but lacks any real depth.

kermis (9995) - Zeeman, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours very hazy orange with brown sediment non-floaters. Aroma of yeast, caramel, soap, candy, light spice and toffee. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Icedwarf (1217) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, ietwat fruitig, abrikoos en kandij. Erg goed.

jcartamdg (3057) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Pours a hazy, milky gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, earth and funk. Taste is earthy, sweet candy sugar, banana esters and toffee.

Un beau gros gushing surprise à l’ouverture et une mousse qui ne fini plus de gonfler. Ça commence bien... Après quelques minutes de repos, on peut attaquer. Robe jaunâtre, la mousse s’atténue considérablement, ne reste que quelques millimètres bien tenaces. Autre chose désagréable: beaucoup, mais beaucoup de grumeaux en suspension. Arômes de levures, tarte aux pommes, muscade, poire, abricot séché. Très sucré et effluves de fruits fermentés. En bouche, on continue sur la ligne sucrée. Encore cette sensation de tarte aux pommes à laquelle on aurait saupoudré du sucre brun. Un peu de muscade et abricot. Des phénols de fermentation nous parviennent aux palais, rapellant le clou de girofle. Une finale trop sucrée et envahissante. J’aurais aimé que le haut taux d’alcool se manifeste un peu plus. Texture assez épaisse, un corps trop rond pour ce style de bière.
