TedE (592) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Sour malt nose. Murky orange/brown beer with slight film. Zingy on the tongue, raisins and alcohol in the finish. Cloves are apparent as it warms. Not my favourite Red Hill beer.

Jado (686) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a thin but lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cinnamon, lime, banana and pepper. Taste opens with bright fresh apple and some white bread, before a firmer peppery note emerges in the mid palate. Fruity finish with some banana and lemon notes. Lingering spicy finish. Not bad at all.

floydian1 (1215) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 1, 2014
Keg at Belgian Beer Cafe, Southbank, Melbourne. Not a bad Aussie approximation of Duval golden ale. Hazy golden pour with a disappointingly thin white head. Nose has golden malts, Belgian yeast and peppery spices that is transferred to the tongue with a bittersweet flavour profile and satisfying dry hop finish. Slick palate with medium body and carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Poura a sligthly pale golden colour with a classic huge balgian head that last forever. Aroma of candysugar, dough, hay and some cinnamon. Flavour is very sweet, almost a bit too much. Lot of candysugar and dough, and a cinnamon finish. Medium to full bodied wirh a soft palate, but a lot of carbonation. Overall, a good beer, but nothing superspecial.

East of Everything (14-Nov-13) Very light herbal citrus aroma. Amber light cloudy colour, ordinary head and suds lacing. Sweet herbal spirit fruit Slight ashy fruit spirit hot finish. More a golden strong ale.

Maris (1201) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 30/11/2012. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with bugger all head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, some apple and spices. The flavour is sweet and fruity, with lots of yeast and spices present. There is some tart apple and more spices in the medium bitter finish. The carbonation is lively but typical of the style. While certainly not my favourite style, this is a decent crack at a strong Belgian ale.

mkel07 (4404) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2012
330ml bottle. Soft white head above a hazy light golden amber colour. Spice and fruit in the aroma is pleasant with a strong warming flavour with a hint of sweetness in the background.

Bottle at the Kernel. Hazy gold beer, big fluffy off white head. Light dry palate. Sweet malts. Traces of bubblegum and fruit salad sweets. Dry finish. Messy and sweet.

GlenH (7) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2010 does not count
Lovely golden colour with a nice white head that has good retention. Spicy and fruity nose - those typical Belgian notes and some apples, bananas and white grapes. Palate is thick and creamy, with a nice tart bite on the finish. Good beer worth trying, just don’t drink too cold.
