COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bhensonb (10777) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Hazy golden body with a huge off-white head. Mild aromas of kandi, pale malt and a mild spicy fruit. Medium body with smooth carbonation. It starts sweet but something like citrus zest cuts that. It’s not citrus though. It’s very smooth. Not so strongly flavored as some. Deceptive as to alcohol. A little light stone fruit in the finish.

Draught, Golden ale with spicy aroma and large head. Thin but spicy flavour, quite tangy but without the complexity of Duvel.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Only slight grapefruitaroma. Strong hopbitter taste with a bit of citrus. Duvel-clone, but with less aroma, taste, complexity and power. Other bottle-type, other label, other breweryname (Liefmans Breweries), but the recipe is probably the same. Very blonde, this Duvel imitation. Soft chalky lemon-like aroma. Flowery, hoppy, honey-like flavor with lime. Dryish with just a bit of fruity sweetness. Not bad, but Duvel is better.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Marzipanartiger, aber auch alkoholischer Geruch. Die 8% merkt man höchstens im Nachgeschmack, der am wenigsten gelungen ist, da er zudem noch metallern schmeckt. Dagegen punktet das Bier im Antrunk mit fruchtig prickelndem Aroma. Dabei ist es einigermaßen süß. Ein weiteres gutes belgisches Bier. Test vom 1.8.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,11,10,7,10,11 - 10,50
