3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 Golden with a small head. Very smooth. Some hints of fruit give it almost a wine feel. The alchol is hidden well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is spicey and fruity. The color is a cloudy golden and the head is white and very short lasting. There is a fruitiness to the flavor and the finish is astringent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like a Belgian, spicy and some citrus notes. Big bubbles in a white head that fades away with a touch of lacing. Citrus notes in the flavor with a acidic aftertaste. Astringent quality that is not unpleasant. Gotta love the huge bottle, though!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Quite yeasty it has to be said, citrus detergent nose. Carbonated yeasty, lemony, fizzy palate, alcohol shows in the finish, finish is also a touch spicy/peppery, a bit raw.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of oranges, caramel, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of oranges and alcohol, while the mouthfeel is carbonated and sticky.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
not bad, not bad. cremey yet lively mouthfeel; a bit buttery, cheesy, honey or caramel noted, more emphasis on spice than fruitiness, which for me is a plus; a semi-thick, sweet and refreshing ale, but perhaps too lively. i need to dig deeper!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2005 Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy golden. Grassy aroma. Yeasty and buttery with lively mouthfeel. Dryish with excellent soft malt character. Funky, yet fresh. Really complex, yet drinkable. Very French. I am most impressed!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a fine head. Spicy with lots of malt and some notes of citrus and honey. Way too carbonated. This reminds me more of a bland, standard Belgian Blond. I loved the Roja - this is disappointing. 120805

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy deep copper with a minimal head. Lots of alcohol and yeast in the aroma and in the flavor. Under that there’s some nuttyness and some dark fruits coming out. Tasted almost like a belgian strong. I can definitely see this beer aging well.
