COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just 3 grains and 3 hops are transformed by a long maturation process to produce a full bodied slight amber beer with a refined balance of floral and citrus notes. Its thick creamy head and bitter aftertaste result in a seductive yet robust drinking experience.

ectuohy27 (957) - ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2016
It’s decent enough, with a full creamy mouthfeel and no obvious off elements, but the level of aromatic hops make it not quite a joy to drink

vincentvega72 (292) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Helder oranje bier. Redelijk zoet, licht moutig, aroma. Smaken van marsepein, caramel, appelsien. Zoetige afdronk die niet lang blijft hangen. Lekker tussendoortje. Niks meer, niks minder.

erickok (5032) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2016
Clear dark golden body. Sweet ish but interesting aroma, cinnamon, marzipan, apple. Cookie spice taste too, quite a nice concept. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

bhensonb (13611) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2016
Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours coppery gold with a white head. Aroma is floral and yeast; maybe a touch of spice. Med body or better. Flavor is floral, yeast, slightly roasty malt, some light non-citrus fruit. Within limits it has me thinking Best Bitter. It has that floral lilt of many English ales. If Bud tasted like this, I’d probably drink Bud.

SylvainCFC (33) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2016
Ambrée claire, bullage fort, tourbillon dans le verre après versement. Mousse crémeuse et aérée, persistance moyenne. Nez discret, léger houblon floral et grains. Arômes peu présents : grain, levure et légèrement épicé (girofle). Présence houblonnée assez faible. Petit piquant à l’attaque, douceur moyenne qui révèle en fin de bouche une amertume moyenne et une astringence moyenne. Corps léger à moyen, plutôt aqueux. Bière belge levurée assez attendue, mais on pourrait attendre plus de caractère houblonné (dry hopping ?). Assez unidimensionnelle.

ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2016
Belle bouteille de 33 cl. Liquide ambré, mousse claire peu persistante. Nez délicat : fruits ’orange), houblon, biscuit. Belle effervescence. Bouche : un peu piquante ; l’alcool et le sucre sont présents mais pas envahissants. Je retrouve l’orange, des épices (poivre), le houblon, une légère amertume. Une "authentic" de qualité bien équilibrée :

On tap at De Heeren Van Liedekercke, march 12th 2015. Creamy orange body with a full white head. Aroma of ginger, citrus, choriander and pepper, taste of fruity yeast notes, cardamom, dark sugar and flower leaves. Pleasant bitterness, sweet and spicy finish. Quite nice!

Hazy Amber in appearance with basically no head. Fairly carbonated. Quite spicy taste.
