Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and hot hay aromas. Sweet and bready upfront turning to hot cookie in the lasting finish.

Had this from tap when it was ABT beer of the month April 2010. Didn’t smell like anything special. Taste was just average.. Not bad, not good. Easy to drink.

Bottle. A more or less clear one, straw to golden in color and with a dense, white head of moderate size. Some lacings. Fruity, alcoholic nose with grainy hints and a spice touch. Pale malts and lots of white sugar, some wheaty toffee too, and a spiced hint. And of course alcohol. Medium body, sweetish yet rather dry, and finishing with a pleasant bitterness. A beer that seems to be made to compete with Duvel, but it’s far from that good, rather edgy actually. 110624

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle @ YardHouse] Clouded golden appearance, good head formation. Plenty of yeast and coriander spice in the aroma. Banana yeast, malty palate, fruity, alcohol noticeable a little excessively sugarry. Drank this as a third beer and found it to be a little too sweet, a little cloying. Might have tasted better as a first on a warmer day.

Clear golden pour with moderate carbonation. Big head that leaves a little lacing. Dry clean finish. Decent and totally drinkable.

330ml bottle at Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, shared with Finn. Patchy surface to a golden body. Sweet fruity aroma, slightly spicy. Spiced fruity taste, along with berries. Warming alcohol. Ok with the food (Brugge, 04.05.2011).

Good in every single feature. I do not know why they changed the phormula but it has nice aroma and ffoam. A little simple after some zips.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Not sure of the vintage, but I’d assume that it is a 2009+. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a cream white head. Good retention. Aromas of coriander, clove, phenols and esters. Alcohol, candi sugar, and light plastic. Minimal malt notes. Flavors are dry and alcoholic with esters, pepper, clove, candi sugar and orange peel. Lively bubbles, dry and creamy. Warming.
