A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Poured from a bottle, pours cloudy light amber, tastes of fight, raspberry and slight metallic. Not bad, not my type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#1070 Trübe im Glas mit unnatürlich viel Schaum, der aber schnell den Rückzug antritt. Aroma? Nee, nicht wirklich. Im Antrunk Malz und dann wird es deutlich alkoholisch-herb...Die 8,5% Alk. sind mehr als deutlich herauszuschmecken. Wirkt geradez sprittig; hätte ich beim Blind-Tasting für ein russisches Wodka-Pivo gehalten. Nee, das ist nichts für mich, eher was für Starkbierfans mit Hang zum Synthetischen.

Little disappointing. Not a bad Belgian but nothing special. Slightly fruit and Spicey. Some lemon. Yeast, bread. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light gold with thick white head. Spicy head. Hazy. Long lasting head. Heavily carbed. Has some potential. Not an everyday beer but glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle at BXL Zoute inNYC. Pours cloudy hazy orange with medium white head and lots of lacing. Alcohol and hops come through with some citrus aroma. A pleasant beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a Belgian of this magnitude , it really lacks the luster. Has the strength if a hard Belgian, with a malt fruity and low hops. Still worth a try ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmm, delicious. Effervescent, crisp, and dry. Nice amount of alcohol with a distinct and somewhat unique blend of the usual Belgian spices.

From BA: Brown squatty 33cl bottle, best before 06/2010, drank on 26th Oct 2007. My bottle says it is brewed by a Liefmans Brewery. Poured into a Leffe glass it came out a golden clear yellow and a large white head sat on tap, sadly the head shrank away very swiftly. I got carbolic soap mixed in with the yeast when I put my nose to it, not a good aroma to me. Full on alcohol taste and more lagerish than a normal Belgian Ale. The aftertaste was thin although the alcohol does linger. A little disappointed with this beer, I was expecting more flavour and more umph.

Rating the 2012 batch from Het Snker. Pours with a towering head, and nice golden color (tulip glass). Closely resembles a Duvel in taste and body. Sought this one out and was rewarded with a nice drink!
