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.

Thick bubly head that lasts. Play yellow colour some sediment. Slightly sweet scent with some citrus. Warm taste with a bit of bitterness. Some alcohol taste and a bit of spice. Flavour was pretty deep and buried and very hard to define.

VEry strong but a little foamy, too sweet too, nice orange tastes. Great alcoholic taste without being tiring.

(07.02.06) One pint 9.4 oz brown bottle as gift from Tom D. Poured hazy orange with giant white head. Good carbonation. Spicy orange aroma. Medium- bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and spicy dried orange peel flavors. Finished dry with light spicy malt fade. Definite alcohol warmth. An enjoyable well-balanced Belgium ale. Thanks Tom!

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 Pours a murky golden color with a white head. Aroma of spices and fruits. Sligt hoppy taste. I think its a good strong ale.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 I mightily enjoyed this beer on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore in a trappist style glass. The aroma was rich with fruit and citrus hops, some caramel malt too and yeast. It had a warming golden-yellow color with a big, foamy white head. The flavor was great, noticeable fruity touches, mostly sweet, but with a good slightly bitter-sour finish. It was a fairly wet beer, and pretty lively on my palate with a full mouthfeel. A very drinkable beer that was gone in no time!

DrPiva (96) - Alabama, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle. A belgian golden ale similar to Duvel with a fruity, winey bouquet and a malty, pear flavor. A sherry-oak finish, and a semi-dry, mildly bitter, hoppy, fruity aftertaste.

Rating #1300 - Pours bright golden with a mostly maintained wispy off-white head. Aroma of honey, bubble gum, peppery phenolics, pineapple, mango. Taste is sweet and estery, notes of pineapple, citrus, peppery alcohol, bubble gum. Full bodied with lush carbonation. Underrated and delicious. Pretty enjoyable Belgian Ale, have to say this one is underrated.

Borresteijn (6499) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle & tap, several occasions. This is a personal favourite, one of the better "satanic" beers. Looks beautiful in its own glass, clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma of yeast and malts. Taste is sweet and hoppy, dry, yeasty, all very subtle. A bit of spices in there too. Highly drinkable. A bit softer than Duvel.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2003
Pours a clear golden color with a large, rocky white head that lingers. The aroma is yeasty and spicy with some malt tones. Medium body with full carbonation, the flavor is yeasty and spicy with some good maltiness, and the finish is long and yeasty with touches of vanilla. A very nice Belgian golden ale. It's similar to Duvel, but not quite as complex.
