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.

FatPhil (9407) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2011
330ml bottle (Delirium Cafe, Brussels) BB2010-12, drunk 2011-01
5 Not much aroma, only slightly sweet light berries.
3 cloudy orange with sinky bits, small head. Delirium barman poured rather than us, grrr...
6 Gentle light grains, milky, absolutely no hint of alcohol, and it doesn’t taste like a big beer at all. Has some of the sweetness of fresh almonds.
4 Pleasant palate before you get to the sludge at the bottom (which squicks me a bit), good level of carbonation.
14 Aged very well, massively mellow and soft. Shame that it’s lacking some balls in the aroma department. Dunno if the new moortgat Lucifer will compare well to this, I hope so.

hopscotch (9241) - 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!

daknole (9224) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Gold pour. Super malty aroma with some alcohol and yeast. Flavor is yeasty and fruity. warming as it goes down. Fruity and good.

pivnizub (8923) - 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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2004
Draught - White Horse - Parsons Green London SW6. A golden coloured beer with bananas and spices on the aroma. The taste has coriander, lemon, wheat, perfume and roses. Having said all that though it’s a bit thin. OK though.

Sammy (8726) - 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.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2005
(bottle) Light yellow colour with big foamy white head. Aromas of hops and yeast with a little bit of straw and grass. Mild malty taste with a acidic dry hoppy finish & alcoholic in the positive way.
