A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - which pretty much is how the flavor is too, with a dry end. Average Belgian Ale.

Bottle. This is quite a nice beer, but it lacks the individuality, that would set it apart from other belgian blondes. It has the yeast, the citrus, the fruit and everything else, one would typically find in a blonde, but it also has some flaws: a slight metallic and watery aftertaste, which has a bitterness, that doesn’t come off as plaeasant as the immediate tasting. I’d like to try this on draught. It is quite drinkable and pleasant and goes down easily, but is has the percentages to creep up on you, so be careful...now wheres’s my bed?

One of the lesser Belgian golden strongs. Slides down easily enough but it’s as forgettable as a Belgian strong can be. Also, be warned: these beers are gushers. This is the second sample from this brewer to spray my kitchen. Once in the glass, it was a bright gold with a tall, lasting head that left great reefs of lace. The aroma has an unappealing chalky quality that tends to mask the underlying tangy hops, lemonade and dry ginger notes. Very yeasty. I found the mouthfeel a little flat, undercarbonated and thin but it develops a nice syrupy swallow. Restrained sweet flavour of lemony hops and hard candy, with a gently phenolic sourish finish.

Dangerous, devilish brew this one turned out to be. Sessionable, easy drinking ale with a kick that could make things messy late in the night. Tasted form the oddly labelled bottle, it erupted with vigour and made pouring a decent head a little easier. Head formed, but dissipated back quickly to leave islands of white bubbles. The body of beer a summery hazy yellow-gold with a flourish of fine carbonation. Big, clean, spicy and tangy citric nose with a light hint of candi. Smooth, yeasty, treacle-like body, the light biting carbonation moved things along quickly. Flavour was quite subtle, banana, vanilla and cantaloupe with a little candi sugar upfront. Herbs in the back, slightly sour and a little grassy before a long sweet and sour finish. The alcohol remained completely undetected, even as it warmed, which made for an easy drinker with ’bite’. Nothing complex about it, but it was still a nice drop. (33cL, 23/08/06)

Hazy blonde color. Oranges, pineapples, peaches, wood and a bit of yeast in the nose. Mouth starts mildly hoppy, then comes some sweet malt with pineapples, peaches. Sweet malty tropical fruity finish. Nice tropical fruit like beer.

Hazy pale, dull straw body with an average size white head. Smooth taste of orange, rockmelon, coriander and a little zest. The body is medium and the alcohol is well hidden. Thought this was a good drop, it had good balance, the aroma was pleasant and it was very drinkable.
