33 cl. bottle sampled @ Vooruit in Gent. BBF 27/08/2016. Clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is very fruity, lots of sticky sweet fruits + hops mixed with lots of candy sugar, sweet flowers, sticky but not in an objectionable way. Taste is lots of sticky candy sugar, sweet white bread, orange peel, cinnamon, sticky candy sugar, dried citrus peel, fruity sugar, esters & warming in the finish. I can see the sweetness getting to much but this is a very interesting. Candy sugar body, sweetness makes this one a sipper but an interesting one.

Blonde dorée, effervescence quasi absente de visu, moyennement gazeuse au palais, col blanc crémeux tombe rapidement. Malts clairs bien présents laissent lentement place à une légère mais néanmoins agréable amertume ainsi qu’à quelques notes de miel et de l’un ou l’autre fruit. Yum-yummy!

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy dark orange with a short head. Ginger spice, light fruit and dough on the nose. Medium sweet attack. Medium body, little carbonation, creamy-thick texture and a fruity, light bitter finish. A malty, moderately interesting ale.

Gold colour, off white foam. Beautiful hoppy aroma, yeasty fruitiness. Spices in the taste, plenty of fruitiness with hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.

MrW (518) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle 33 cl @ Camenbière, Aartselaar. Honey, herbs, bread, hops in the aroma. Perfect appearance imo. Goldblond, offwhite dense head, a lot of sparkling, lacing. Poured in the tasting glasses of the house. Taste is in balance. Sweets of the honey, herbs, soft, nuts, apple. Light bitter finish. Perfect match with a lot of different cheeses.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle 0.33 . golden clear with a rather firm head. Feel is very smooth and for 8% the alcohol is definitely not present. The carbonation is perfect. The taste is a good mixture of sweets and slightly sour with some bitter notes. Overall a very good beer which I will buy again if I have the chance.

sebletitje (8615) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 19-12-2015. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux. Arôme donne de belles notes d’agrumes avec ce bouquet unique mielleux sur qcq effluves de fruits fermentés. Palais restitue ici aussi le mielleux sans pour cela dominer toute la bière. Houblonné reste plus en retrait et contribue à un ajout subtile d’amertume herbacée et fruitée; agrumes. Les malts sont là mais restent en retrait.

Deep golden beer with a stable white head. Nose is full, intensive ripe tropical fruits, peaches and apricots. Full body, light oily texture, pleasant pretty carbon and rounded overall impression. taste is rather semi sweet and semi bitter. Palateis overhelmed by different tropical fruits but also subtropical, honey and intensive bitter herbs hints. Semibitter finish. B@H
