UPDATED: SEP 20, 2010 Draft at 3Floyds’ pub on Dark Lord Day. Cloudy gold color under a big meringue head. An exquisite mix of that Belgian pale malt and too many hops for a Belgian beer—I suspect some American IPA hops—adding citrus, pine and pepper to the mix.

Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color with huge white head. Very inviting malty, spicy, fruity aroma up front which also comes out in the rich, wonderful flavor. Alcohol flavor is subtle yet present. Light/medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness coming out in the finish, which unfortunately does not linger long enough. A most excellent brew.

Fruity nose. Sweet candy taste, bit soapy. A decent belgian beer, nothing special. Can even taste some hop

0.75l Hazy light yellow, white head. Aroma combination of fruits, malts, wheat,spices and some ginger. Taste is smoothly fruity with malty sweetness. High carbonation fits with the taste. Nice beer.

No... Tak się powinno piwo prezentować - mętne, super kolor, mega piana i fajny lacing. W smaku lekkie i przyjmne. Nie czuć tą moc. Ogólnie polecam.

ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a hazy, dull, yellow/gold with a big loose off white head. The aroma is great, fruit, candi sugar coriander. The taste is coriander, yeast, fruit with a dry fruity finish. The body is light+ with good active carbonation. Pretty solid though a bit on sweet side.

RafeAU (200) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Lovely BGS. Big esters, initial sweet taste, finish is moderately bitter and warm alcohol. not such a dry finish as some other examples. seems a little closer to a tripel? 750 ml bottle at lentil is anything.

Mörkt gyllengul vätska med tjockt skum. Doft av citrus och säd. Smakar lite pepprig och äppelskal. Torr och eldig munkänsla. Medellång eftersmak.
