Bottled@EBF2008. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol, some nectar and yeast along with some mild toffeeishness. Flavour is quite much the same. A nice and balanced brew, which shows alcohol only as a slight burning note when swallowing.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2008
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of heavy dried fruit, Sherry, toffee, yeast, citrus. Over the palate came mild spice and again strong notes of fruit and maybe a hint of hops. Quite full bodied with an average carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Moderated to heavy sweet flavor with a hint of bitter and acidic notes. Warming alcoholic and prune juice sweet finish.

Bottle. Just like a strong belgian blond. More fruit, more spice and more taste. But also over carbonated.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Ah, a beautiful iridescent golden color pushes froth upwards at an alarming rate. A goblet full of suds that lings and a bit-o-sunshine at the bottom. The head finally rests leaving a thick fluffy blanket to make you smile. Aromas of fresh stonefruit. Full nectar with superb residual effers. A classic already. Flavor wise we see a strong malt backbone supports tons of complex fruit from the trees like nectarine, apricot, banana, kiwi, vanilla bean, and spices, maybe a bit of green tea. The finish is bittered beautifully despite it strength and moderate sweetness factor.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Draught at EBF 2008. Unclear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, good lancing off-white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Draft @ The Front Door: Boise - Pours a golden blond color with a nice puffy white head and good lacing. The nose is bright with some candy sugar, belgian yeast, orange and coriander along with some starchy strong alcohol notes. The flavor is intense and estery with lots of yeast and processed candy sugar notes. The finish is spicy and yeast. Quite good and fresh, much more golden than the usual Cuvee with similar levels of spice.
