Hazy honey gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, fruity nose of ripe apples, with some faint honeyed pale malts, and a hint of floral hop citrusy in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, sweet honeyed pale malt character, with a warmth alcoholic mouthfeel, a light cereal grainy accent, a hint of vanilla, leading towards a honeyish warming finish.

Bottle @ home.
Light unclear medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is light malty, moderate yeasty, complex, light alcohol. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, sweet and vineouse. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish is light alcoholic.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
(Bottled, BBE 08/2009, thanks TBone!)Opaque orange with a small, firm, mostly vanishing head. Strongly orange-honey-fruity aroma with some yeast. Orange-fruity flavor with grainy, pale maltiness, and some slightly burning, sweetish-acidic alcohol presence. Medium-bodied, warming palate with pretty low, but slightly fizzy carbonation. A decent, orange-accented Belgian Strong - but still miles away from Dulle Teve (the benchmark 10% Belgian Strong blond ;) complexity-wise.

Bottle. [thank you, dedollewaitor]
[at dedollewaitor’s Odense tasting]
Pours light hazy yellow with a fine medium, frothy white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is yeast and light maltiness. Super mouthfeel. Flavour is highly vinious, lightly metallic, a bit sweet, some apple. Far too much alcohol!
