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.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Clear, straw-colored brew. Frothy, white head with nice lacing. Low marks for aroma. LIGHT STRUCK! I can't believe a brown-bottled brew is skunked. Otherwise, the aroma is of coriander and yeast. Smells like a high ABV hefe. The flavor is well-balanced with warm alcohol, fuzzy fruit and banana. Full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Long, spicy, alcoholic finish. Overall, not a bad brew. A good one, actually. My bottle was way off as I have tried, but not rated this beer previously!

Sammy (9524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Lots of lace, pure yeasty taste with some spiciness, corriander and pepper and citrus and fairly malted though not overly sweet, medium body, drying finish from sugar and aggressive carbonation. Somewhat astringent lemony mouthfeel otherwise Easy drink. Cole’s Belgium fest sample.

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Hazy yellow/gold color with a medium thick white head and thin lacing. Aroma of spice, clove and yeast. Fairly crisp with a bitter character and flavors of wheat, pepper, fruit and a little alcohol. The finish is very carbonated. I really was not too impressed with this one.

pivnizub (9290) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 25, 2005
Very pale golden coloured, very long lasting big rocky white head; fruity (bananas; orange (?)) and a bit alcoholic nose with some hints of herbal hoppiness; very fizzy; sweetish, fruity, soft taste, dominated by some alcohol; turning into a long lasting, dry hoppy aftertaste.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Fitting for number 666. Very pale straw coloured beer with a huge lasting head. Big yeasty aroma, apricot/peachy fruit, green apple, black pepper spiciness, and more hoppy aromas than I was expecting, with a hop profile reminiscent of Orval, grassy and herbal. Flavour is quite light and refreshing, yeast, spice, some fruitiness. Ethanol is noticible. Very good, if a little thin-bodied.
