3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle at Belgian Beer Café, Sydney. Spicey fruit on the nose balanced with some sweet maltiness. Pours an attractive clean golden body with a dense white head atop. Palate is rich as the strength would suggest, creamy mouthfeel. Quite spicey with pear and apricot like fruit flavours and some sweetness. Floral hops towards a dry finish, alcohol is scarily well hidden. A very nice strong Belgian blonde.

Quite an attractive beer, gold and slightly hazy. Subdued spicy aroma... lead me to believe that this beer may disappoint. However my fears were allayed with the big assertive sweet fruity palate... and pleasant dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Pale clear golden colour, large and lasting head. Lovely spicy and fruity aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some sweetness and fruit in the flavour, the high ABV is treacherously well hidden. Well, you get some idea that the beer is stronger than average, but not 8.5% ... Hints of spices. Surprisingly moderate hops. Aftertaste is not impressive. Best served cold.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Coloração golden, levemente turva. Floral e frutada. Notas de gengibre. Ótimo creme, denso e persistente. Encorpada. Amargor muito bem dosado, de forma que ele é notado sem ser desagradável. Excelente retrogosto! O álcool é aparente, mas bem inserido no conjunto.

Canned. Golden colour, big white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, glueish and some yeast. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some sugar and malts. A very pleasantly balanced beer. As it gets warmer also some spices and slight honeyish hints become present.
