An okay beer. Pours out golden orange blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with mild malts. Slightly skunky aroma and taste. Taste is hoppy and citrus fruits...bitter alcohol finish and skunkiness. Lots of lacing and smooth alcohol finish. Overall, a pretty solid beer.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Pours a hazy orange with a small ivory head. Aroma is of sour green apple, honey, and malt. Flavor has a good Begian yeastiness to it, the fruit is a little more subdued. Kind of a brettanomyces sour/funk to it. Odd soy sauce ending. Nice bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, good minus.

Pours a golden colour with a frothy head and large globs of malleable foam. Sweet aroma. Pleasant malty taste. Easy-drinking.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Pretty average Belgian. Hints of malt and fruit in both flavor and aroma. Some lingering notes of yeast and candy sugar. Overall nothing spectacular.

Goldcoloured, small head, frothy. it’s got a lot of co2.A bit more taste and palate than a pilsner, a bit sweety aroma, also in the taste. Some fruitiness, like apple and honey.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Sample at the Aleksey Portfolio Show. Smells of yeast, honey, and tea. Flavor is the same with some banana notes. Slightly tart finish.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2009
A clear golden beer with little head. Aroma was fruity, sweet, & floral. Taste was slightly fruity, with a candy sugar coming in the middle then balanced out with a smooth ending. A little thin & watery but not bad.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
This one arrived in the glass with a creamy white head of 1.5 fingers depth on top of an orange/amber body. A spiced aroma treated my nose, and the taste was very much the same, i.e., spiced. A moderate mouthfeel followed by a slightly sweet finish ended with a quite sweet last kick at the can.
