I got mine at the Oriental Wok with lunch. Poured just like the picture, gold color large head. Yeasty, floral aroma, with slight smell of saaz. Fruity sweet flavor, dry finish, excellent beer.

I agree with Chad for the most part on this beer. It holds the 8.5% very well, has a very pleasant taste to it. Not very complex, but very well balanced and easy to drink.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Bottle. Very light colored for the 8.5% ABV; generous head. Sweet, mildly malty taste that disguises a very nice and strong alcohol finish, with some hints of honey and more sweetness. Dry in the end. Nice.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2003
Bottled. Served just as it looks in the picture, at the Dovetail. Bright golden colour with a large bright white head. Dry with a slightly sweet flavour, sour dough in proportion. Dusty palate that leaves it slightly simple for such a looker.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
A beautiful blond belgian ale with a light malt charcter, assertive bitterness and a pleasant dryness. Also has a light fruity nose.

Jayb0 (1122) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Looks just like the picture on this page. Appetizing, no? Head recedes but doesn't disappear. Bready, slightly sweet aroma. Full bodied, creamy in the mouth. Spicy, well balanced, finishes dry. Very good beer.

jazz88 (2638) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Bottle. A golden color with a big foamy white head. A strong spice and flowery aroma. A little dry, zesty, citrus, spicy and warm.

diabel (1650) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2003
Golden blond colour. Duvel-aroma, but yet a little honey-aroma. The flavour is slighty bitter, slightly malty, also sparkles of fruit-flavours.

This golden ale pours a golden yellow with lots of yeast particles and a big, lingering white head. It has a yeasty aroma with hints of citrus fruits and saaz hops. Medium body with lively carbonation, the flavor is lightly malty with some nice, fruity yeast and hop notes. The finish is slightly hoppy and dry with a mild fruitiness. A very nice Belgian golden ale.
