Ale in Belgian Strong Golden Ale style.Orange coloured. On the nose, it features caramel notes followed by interesting citrus, yellow fruit and tropical fruit scents, deriving from the use of New Zealand hopper. In the mouth, it has a neat fruity apricot and pineapple taste followed by a slight bitter taste. 16°

Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of spices, ginger, malt, and cardemomme. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, citrus, grapefruit, phenols, leading to a dry finish.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Fruity and spicy nose. Medium body, very tart and citric. Ends dry. I believe this one is infected. 100910

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Cloudy golden with a creamy, small and lacing head. Sweet honeyish aroma. Spicy honey flavours, quite sticky and sweet. Despite the spicy complexity this beer ends up too sweet for my liking.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle@Home. Sweetish, sourish, thinnish. Best before April ’10 it says but a few days past it’s BBD can’t do this to it. There’s just something wrong with it.

Birra bevuta alla spina direttamente al birrificio Lambrate. Nel complesso una buona birra, la mia preferita di questo birrificio insieme alla ghisa.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Poured into tall pint as seen pictured on the left at Birrificio Lambrate brewpub in Milano. 3 finger light white head, cloudy yellow appearance, faint citrus smell with a sweet citrus taste. Sparkly mouthfeel from the carbonation. No real aftertaste. Would rank this below this brewery’s Lambrate.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2009
Draught, 6.8%. Hazy golden colour. Big stable bubbly white head. The flavour is slightly fruity... Slightly citric... Not very alcoholic. Only a hint of yeast. A bit boring I think, but quite clean.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Light yellow colored with hazy appearance. Hopped-lemony aroma with some sweet fruitiness, good aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Flavor is similar:biting with hops and flowery grassy note, aftertaste is even more hopped. Very good brew.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed sweetness and earthy, herbal hoppiness whip up a plump and simple Belgian-style Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam garnishes the nearly clear blond.
-A little too much alcohol is showing in the nose (for my tastes).
-Some pear-like esters are tasted alongside the alcohol.
-Although it was quite drinkable, I found this brew to be the least interesting of all the beers they had on offer that week in Mid-July.

On tap at the brewpub.
