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.

Tap at tylers taproom in durham, nc. Bright gold pour with a thin haze. Definitely some protein coagulation from the yeast. Cloyingly sweet.

11.2oz from a beer club. Glowing golden pour, as if lit from within. Some haze in there from the yeasts, and a modest head. Faintly fruity aroma quickly gives way to a strong, sharp smell of hops. A pretender to the throne of Duvel? Most likely. I do enjoy this kind of style, but this brew is too heavy on the sweet malts, giving it a less than fully complex personality. That and the fairly thin mouthfeel makes it mostly a pass.

A light spice aroma. Looks great. The flavor has a good spiciness to it up front. A little alcohol in the finish. Nice light color; much more like a tripel to me. Tasty beer.

Great, clean beer with a good texture for such a light ale. Too bad my distributor has discontinued it... Enjoi!

33cl bottle. It actually was the last bottle the bar had and could not get more due to the brewery going bankrupt. Pours golden with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty lightly fruity. Taste was sweet, citrusy and yeasty. Found the beer to be extremelly sweet and complex.

Borresteijn (5646) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle & tap, several occasions. This is a personal favourite, one of the better "satanic" beers. Looks beautiful in its own glass, clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma of yeast and malts. Taste is sweet and hoppy, dry, yeasty, all very subtle. A bit of spices in there too. Highly drinkable. A bit softer than Duvel.

I drank this in Belgium, cause it was the only thing I could pronounce at the restaurant. It was a good brew, but it wasn’t anything to write back to dad about.

Bottle. Pours golden with a medium white head. A typical belgian golden ale with a yeasty and malty aroma and flavour. Good spicy flavour.
