(Draught at Au Trappiste, Paris, 15 Oct) Golden yellow colour with huge frothy white head. Very lively, lots of carbonation. Fruity nose with spices, clove and a hint of Seville orange. Fruity taste with citrus (orange, Seville orange), spicy hoppy notes and balanced sweetness. Nice and spicy.

1/3 l bottle. Bright golden color with weak head. Sweet aroma with fruity esters, malt, herbal hops, citrus fruits, vanilla and woody spices. Sweet honeyish malty flavor with herbal hop flavor and some bitterness. A bit too sweet Leffe Blonde like beer.

Good classical "bière de garde" beer with a lot of flowery/spicy aroma and taste. Alcohol is not too present, sweet bitterness, quite refreshing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle (750ml, Utobeer): Golden, short white lasting head. Spicy aroma with some grainy, biscuity malts. Flavour is quite simple, clean malts and spicy, floral hops. No real funk, but a slight citrus edge. Refreshing.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 After drinking French biere de gardes and Belgian abbeys for several months, the uniqueness of the hops in this one really struck me. It pours an unpromising, average, gold color with a fluffy, white, fine-bubbled head. The nose is the best I’ve ever encountered, and was the first signal that this was not as terrible as most of the beers in the north of France. Flowers and sweet spice dominate the nose. The taste is lightly acidic up front with a strong punch of fruit - perhaps a sweet, light-colored fruit like a mango or a peach. The alcohol is hidden tastefully, and the finish is a very malty-wheat trail with a lasting but soft aftertaste. This is superb.
