Spice and citrus dominate the nose. Pours a hazy orange with a quickly dissipating 1/2 inch creamy head. Some really nice alcoholic warmth happening with the spice and citrus flavors coming through. Loving the carbonation too - very active. I think it’s wrong that I don’t buy this on a regular basis. Great beer!

Beautiful yellow color. The beer has a nice white foam. The smell is nice. The smell is sweet and you can smell some alcohol. There is also a little roast aroma, which is nice. The smell is nice. There is a nutty king of taste. The nutty flavor gives a savory appearance. Realy nice beer.

One of the best for my taste. Good aroma and appearance. Bitter but not too bitter. Different nuances of taste.

huineman (265) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2015
Pours golden with a white heavy head. Aroma is bread, lemon, butter, iron and a delicious note of mint. Balanced, soft, full-bodied, with a long bitterish finish. Great.

SkillsFactory (90) - ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Dorata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca di media persistenza, ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero. Aroma di coriandolo, leggero sentore di chiodi di garofano, lievito belga, amaro erbaceo da luppolo. Stesse note palatali. Birra equilibrata e ben bevibile.

Brew_Cat (14) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle @ Barley Cargo, Athens. Light yellow to golden color, small diminishing off-white head, medium body. Malt aromas of bread, hay, and grains. Floral, grass and herbal notes. At times it reminded me of white wine. Taste evolves and new layers appear as time passes by, leaving an earthly fresh sense and a slightly sour aftertaste. Not as strong as I would expect from its ABV percentage, nevertheless a fairly good and refreshing golden ale. Paired well with vegetarian finger food.

Cloudy golden appearance. Yeasty, spicy aroma with a faint smell of hops. Spicy, yeasty flavor and bitter on the palate.

Lekki gaszing z butelki (piwo niefiltrowane, refermentowane w butelce więc ma prawo), spora szampańska piana szybko opadająca do obrączki, mętna jasno pomarańczowa barwa. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, owocowo-słodowy, są cytrusy, dominujące brzoskwinie, morele, guma balonowa i cała masa melanoidyn kojarzących się ze świeżym chlebem, skoszonym zbożem, biszkoptami... W smaku delikatna owocowo-drożdżowa kwaśność, troszkę kojarząca mi się z witbierem, lekka odsłodowa słodycz, kontrowana przyprawowością z kolendrą i czerwonym pieprzem na czele. Goryczka nieduża, ale obecna, alkohol w sumie wyczuwalny, mógłby być lepiej ukryty, choć z drugiej strony może dodaje to głębi temu piwu? Nagazowanie średnie, odczucie półpełne. Belgijska klasyka po raz kolejny mnie nie zawodzi. Świetne kompleksowe piwo z bogatym aromatem i pięknie skomponowanym bukietem smakowym, bardzo pijalne a zarazem szlachetne.
