COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper coloured, sparkling with a fine, dense head. Complex, hop base with fruity touch. Well pronounced bitterness, appreciated for its thirst-quenching and lightness.

bierkoning (10377) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2003
Frothy head, dark amber color. Citric caramelaroma. Peppery, malty, hoppy flavor with some licorice. Full bodied. Excellent Belgian saison.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2003
A nebulous orange to copper color on the pour, the head creamy in its texture, the size adequate, the color a light tan and as it dissipates it leaves behind a fine sheet of lace to conceal the glass. Yeast hits the nose first, then a sweet bubble gum like aroma, pleasant enough as noses go. Malt dominates the start, the top skinny in its feel, the acidity ferine in its bite, the hops present but exceedingly mild, desert dry aftertaste that lingers on. Can’t call this bad, but can’t say it “Tickles My Fancy” either, “Average” I guess sums it up well, at least in my humble opinion.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2002
Amber coloured with small head. Flowery aroma. Too short taste.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2002
Hazy honey amber colour with small, large bubbled quick dissipating light tan head. Big fresh fruity burst on first pour overtaken by slight candy malt and fermenting baked bean aromas. Lowly carbonated medium body with big malty bitter and yeasty start. Soft bitter middle and aftertaste. Solid start but then it goes downhill from there.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2002
nice amber coloured beer, in a beatiful glass, with an easy going start and a very dry finish. A slightly wooden taste(like tannine or theine) Sell very good in my pub

En bière Ambrée. Like a brown witbier. Not my style.

jonas (5692) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 25, 2002
Nice head on a orange-brown beer, citrusy aroma (peaches,roses ?), but a bit anonymous taste.
