Light blonde gold color, slightly hazy. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, oranges, herbs and apples. A medium bodied Belgian Golden Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Touch of yeast. Smooth and creamy. Touches of spiciness. Small lively carbonation. No hint of the 8% alcohol. Nice refreshing beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Some off putting vinegar notes in both aroma and taste. Crazy small head for a Belgian. Some spice and hop finish, but not enough to make it a good beer.

clear cider yellow with a nice thick white head. aroma is blueberry lemon and turpentine, but in a good way. sweet taste of strawberry and and bitter citrus hop. ginger ale finish. an interesting sweet brew. acidic lingers in the finish that gets a bit old. but is still enjoyable . the blueberry is all over the place in this.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 (Bottled, 7.5% ABV) Opaque amber color with a medium, creamy head. A spicy aroma of clove and ginger, plus some caramely, pale maltiness and yeast. Fruity and spicy, nicely balanced flavor with quite rich maltiness, cloves, lime and orange-peel. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A well-balanced and enjoyable, slightly sweet and orange-spicy brew.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 17, 2005
nice fairly dry beer reminiscent of a strong Blonde. Mild spice is counter balanced by some soft fruits and muls acidity. lemon and mango with a bit of perfumy floral note on the palate. Nice clean and dry finish that briefly lingers.

Besides beautiful beer, Belgium can be proud of bringing into being another exceptional invention, the saxophone, courtesy of Adolphe Sax. So, I lift this glass and raise it to Bird, Lester, Coleman, Coltrane, Sonny, Ornette, "the Jug", and the other giants of the golden horn. Straw gold color, half opaque, immense head, incredible effervescence...gorgeous. Nose is mostly spice and a little sidecar of fruit, pleasurable enough for repeated sniffs...airy, angelic...lovely. Taste? I’d say "yum", but I’ve run that into the ground lately...big, juicy citric flavor matched with tingly spice (cardomom, coriander, ?) Ripe fruit, develops beyond citrus into peach,. apricot....delicious. Mouthfeel is warm, full, if finally fading, and always replete with flavor, a ciric kick, and zesty effervescence. Never tastes like 8% abv, until the end...you want another, and another, but it’ll make you feel it tomorrow! All in all, a very satisfying golden ale..
