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.

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 itís a bit thin. OK though.

Skinnyviking (8685) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2007
Bottle. Fluffy white lasting head. Hazy yellow body with a lot of carbonation. Sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet fruity yet spicy flavor. Alcohol just noticeable, almost hidden by the high carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (8155) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle, 1 pint and 9.4 FL oz. Hazy gold color with tall white head. Aroma is light with a bit of spicy hops, lemon, candy sugar and yeast. As the beer warms I smell a bit of malt sweetness. First sip is an explosion of carbonation. The taste starts off tart along with hints of candy sugar. Midway the sugar part gets stronger and some pepper. Later a hint of the alcohol surfaces.

8.5, another duvel clone?? Well, not really ..The big thing here is that the alcohol is masked much better than duvel, but the similarities end there....

Light honey wheat smell...

medium bodied fizzy head, that leaves some noticeable lacing...

witbier type light yellow cloudy appearance...

Taste is mainly a honey bitterness with not much complexity, but that can be a neutral- a starter belgian but most people with some good beer background will find this lacking...

an enjoyable easy drinking beer (man,. how often do i say that!?!)
but it really isnít anything that special...

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Misty gold with bathfoam suds. Soapy, rubbery, alcoholic aroma with traces of marmalade and pine. Aggressively booze-sodden with lurking antiseptic notes. Pointless, pleasureless administration of alcohol to the central nervous system. Pissed comprehensively over by Duvel. Canít be bothered.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2007
330ml bottle. Very similar to Duvel. Slightly hazy gold with a big white head. sweet malt and spice aroma. Flavour also inclined towards sweetness with a good, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Had typical Belgian strong ale characteristics but just not right on mark. I was a little disappointed by this baby.

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