COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ignite your passion with this unique multigrain beer. This golden ale is brewed in the typical belgian tradition and brewer's knowledge. The golden color radiates warmth and noblesse. The recipe is based on barley, oats and wheat. Historically the combination of these three grains has proven to be the ideal one. Coriander and spice are to be found in the nose. The smooth flavour is very well balanced and combines a slight acidity with a sweet body and a subtle bitter finish. Alcohol is 7° vol.

Hildigöltur (5103) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2004
Brewed especially for Beerhouse Saga, Deinze. Deep golden coloured with big white head and some sediment. Nice hoppy and spicy aroma. Fruity flavour with a very hoppy finish for a Belgian ale. Soft mouthfeel. Very well balanced. It tastes somewhat like a hoppier version of Alvinne Blond.

A very nice tasting beer. The combination of the 3 grains makes this beer very special.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2007
(Bottled, 0.33l) Opaque orange with a largeish, very persistent, creamy and lacy – almost Duvely – head. Very fruity, sweetish-orangey, grainy-pale-malty aroma. Slightly acidic, fruity and mildly yeasty flavor – again much like Duvel, only smoother, thicker, and with less hops. Medium-bodied with pretty smooth carbonation. A simple and straightforward recipe, but it seems to work surprisingly well, and doesn’t irritate in any way. You don’t always have to try to be different – as long as you brew enjoyable beer.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2009
Draught. Cloudy orange colour. Big stable off-white head. The aroma is fruity and refreshingly citric. The flavour is sweet and nicely malty. Fruity as well, soft fruit like apricot, perhaps plum and pear. Also some spicy notes, cookie spices of some sort. Has some alcohol to balance the sweetness and spices. A pleasant surprise.

Pours lightly hazy coppery golden with a medium, frothy and lightly off-white head. Aroma has oranges, light tartness. There is good malt balance and a slight spiciness. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some green apples, pepper and biscuity malts. Quite nice.
