MadIndian (2614) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus, courtesy of an ohio dad trade. Cloudy orange pour with tiny head. Bread, spice and malt aroma. Taste was good but it was mising something. It fell a little flat for me. Not a bad brew but no WOW factor !

AgedOak (99) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Cloudy dark golden amber color with a massive frothy head. Spices, yeasts and some malt in the nose. A crisp citrus flavor struck me first , followed by some fruit. Ample amount of carbonation with a somewhat hoppy finish. Very different for a belgian. Very nice

Bottled
Hazy orange color, good off-white head. Horseblanket, citrus, yeast and mango in the nose. Citrus estery, fruity sweet flavor with some yeast. American adaption of Belgian blonde., maybe they are trying to copy Orval? Good effort but not really match to its archetypes..

pineypower (2757) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2007
2006 Bottle, thanks Santa (06). Pours out a slightly hazy light orange color with a good sized fluffy head. Aroma of spice and yeast, slight citrus. Taste is smooth still with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor comes together well with light citrus, yeast, spice and some grassy/bitter notes on the finish. Would have again

Very nice beer, crisp and clear. I like the sweet flavor present in many Belgian beera but this one doesn’ leave an unpleasent aftertaste that some stronger ales can do. It’s a little like duvel except it has a cleaner flavor. The hops aren’t too biiter.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2007
(Bottled) Opaque orange with a large, foamy head. Slightly tart aroma with yeast and pale malts. Slightly alcoholic flavor with yeast, lavender and lemongrass. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with foamy carbonation. A reasonably enjoyable, but not very interesting brew.

I really like this. It’s effervescent and spicy and has a pleasant flavor throughout. The hops really give it an extra bite. Great.

Pours a clouded brown with gold. Big head forms off a not very firm pour. Nose is yeasty a bit, but overall is very subdued. Doesn’t seem to deliver a whole lot. Extremely mild citrus is there. But it is just a weee little bit. Flavor is a punch in the mouth. Firm and full. Sweet from sugars, yes. But the yeast plays a good part in it all and the full experience is well rounded and mature. Feel is a bit dough like on the liquid with a thick carbonation. Overall I have to say that this is a very good production of the style. We all know how it can be with American producers trying to work the Belgian styles. Not the case here. Quite good. Worth trying. And worth holding onto for a while to see what may happen.
