3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Epicurean. Pours a hazy shade of intense gold with a big, frothy, white head that lasts even through the repour. The aroma is heavy citrus, some candi sugar and barnyardy funk notes, and floral spiciness. The mouthfeel is lively but not dense, with flavors of spicy florals, citrus, some barnyard, and a dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Clear golden colour, slight fruitiness detected and some yeatiness. Not bad but not up there with some of the better Belgian golden ales.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow, hazy. Thick, fast collapsing very white head. Nose of grain, seemingly some wheat too. Very grassy aroma, or unripe fruit. Grainy taste. Sugar-candi dryness, slightly spicey impression. Dry mouthfeel. Alcohol is there, but well masked. Long dry aftertaste. Somehow, and from the very beginning, I've always thought of this beer as of a super-strong Dentergems wit, rather than as a Duvel-competitor. It has characteristics of both, anyway. Like it.

(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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Bottle. Clear gold color, soda-like bubbles in a large white head. Nose has some spicy yeast and some fishy vinegar aromas. Flavor is spritzy alcohol and a biting sharp grainy flavor. Very plain nose, but harsh on the tongue and in the finish, with a heavy fuel alcohol coating. Stinging carbonation as well.

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.

330 mL bottle. Pours a light golden color with a HUGE frothy thick white head. The aroma is a light malt with banana and citrus notes. Lacing stains the glass on this one. The taste is honey and a sweet vanilla finish. A well done belgian.
