Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7.5% The bees has a deep golden orange on its body and a huge white head on top of it. Quite thick with very good retention. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma has fruity notes, with peaches and apricots and a little bit of caramel. Just a hint of yeast. Taste has more yeast on it, sugar and some sourness on the finish. Aftertaste is light fruity. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Overall okay.

MarcoDL (1984) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Sparkly beer. Mildly sweet smooth body. Some caramel and a slight metallic taste. Boring.

Silvan7 (636) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle @ home. profumo piacevole di lievito belga, frutta esotica (secondo me mango), e pesche mature. Avvertibile anche una leggera nota agrumata. Profumo abbastanza intenso,ma poco persistente. Colore giallo ambrato carico, torbida, con schiuma bianca dalle bolle abbastanza fini. Gusto poco intenso, e poco peristente. inizialmente dolce, rivela un discreto calore alcolico e la luppolauta emerge, molto delicata, solo nell’aftertaste.non è molto armonica. Con occhi e naso sembra una birra da cui aspettarsi una forte nota personale, ma in bocca è deludente, poco caratterizzata.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Ashley. Cloudy orange pour with a white head and some floaters. Aroma is fruity, baking spice, and orange bubblegum. Taste is carbonation, spice, light citrus, and lots of yeast.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2013
Ambrée claire, pétillance moyenne de visu, gazeuse au palais, peu de mousse. Caramel-épicée-sûre d’entrée, notes de fruits ensuite, un peu trop râpeuse au palais. Bizarre, vous avez bizarre...

cwsample (162) - Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle from Fratto. Smells a little sour, but not overbearing. I got the yeast from the bottle, so it looks extremely cloudy. The other pours aren't as cloudy, but still fairly so. Taste is a little sour, just like it smells.

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a cloudy orange color with floating yeast. Bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet bread, Belgian fruit, sugar. Flavor is sweet and sugary with a hunt of fruit and yeast. Sweet on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
