Bottle, 7.2%. Slightly rough, citric hop aroma. Golden colour, soapy white head. The flavour is yeasty with some OK aroma hops, citric and fruity. Well-balanced with the alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Aroma of hops, grapes and banana. Sweet and a bit 'soapy'. The taste is a little bit tart. Hopbitterness overwhelmed by a sweet fruitiness. A long sweet and slightly herbal finish.
New recipe? 7,2% on the label, 2004 version, 75 cl. Light amber color, sugary orange aroma. Sweet sugary flavor, some hops on the background. Orange, a bit soapy. This seems to be the new Arcen house style. Very drinkable and inoffensive, but also unimpressive.

Golden, white creamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet from candy. Malty flavor that laso brings some candy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (traded with Bierkoning, thanks !) Deep golden coloured, small fluffy white head; sweet, malty and citric aroma with a touch of alcohol and honey, some herbal hops in the background; moderate sweet bitter flavour, a little, little bit acidic; sweetish citrousy finish. Decent Bock, a bit - as usual - too sweet....

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle, received by trade with bierkoning – thanks!) Clear golden colour with a foamy white medium head. Slightly sweet malty, herbal and light-flowery hops aroma with a tinge of fruitiness (honey). Sweet flavour, medium bodied, well-carbonated. Sweet malty and slightly nutty taste; slightly sugary and sweetbitter finish, slightly hoppy and quite adherent tart finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, Interesting to have a Dutch bock immediately after an American bock. Neither of them resemble a true German bock of course. This is gold in colour with a creamy white head and good lacing. The aroma has some sweet malts and some pineapple and lemon fruitiness. The taste is also sweet and malty but there is a yeasty Belgianness to it, together with some peppery spice. Interesting!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very clear, colour of old gold; yellowish tinted head. Grassy nose with markedly cocos/copra aroma. Unfortunately fast gone, leaving just a suspicion of orange and nothing else. Burnt/roasted taste, a tad harsh; aroma of citruszeste and candi sugar. Rather thinnish mouthfeel, burning sensation, but not alcohol. In the aftertaste, an earthy flavour comes up. A bit - well, quite - harsh. And most surprising, it has the character of a not-too-super tripel ale, rather than that of a Bock.
