Orangey amber body with a medium size frothy white head. A little bit of pepper on the nose, does that signify the alcohol, also some orange. Pleasant easy drinking taste, alcohol doesn’t seem to show, medium to light in the body, soft malts. Agree with the coomercial description " strong ale with a mild taste"

Amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a bit of pepper. Light bodied for the style. Flavor is spicy, and I kept detecting a slight metallic/chemical aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Probably a 2004 bottle at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest, 4/02/05. Had this immediately following the gold. Lightly spicy, a bit dusty, dry nose with a bit of toast, dry fruits, appleskins and a touch of caramel sugar. Flavor is sweeter than the gold, not surprisingly, with a good deal more candi sugar apparency and some yeast dryness on the end. Orange peel, a touch of orange creme and light caramel and nuttiness. Medium body, though not anything strikingly fuller than the gold, maybe a bit more sugar to create a bigger effect. Orange body, with some faint auburn tints and an off-white head, very ligth haziness.

Bought this beer just because of the name, It has a definite belgian beer aroma to it that has hints of fruits, the color is a light amber with a lot of crap floating around in it. The flavor is nice and smooth, nice mellow maltiness that finishes with citrusy flavor to it. Very drinkable belgian.

Mega murked caramel brown with an orangy glow and some bigtime floaties suspended within. Fluffy medium cap of ivory; slim sheeted lacing sticks. Aroma is lightly fruity with white grapes, pear, and green apple; has a slight edged candy sweetness mixed with a bit of lambic-like sour tart tone. Taste is pretty mediochre, some off wheat sweetness mixed with a steady under current of white wine tart and drying pieces. No real outstanding flavors peak my interest here. Plain, tartish, and drying with partial tin notes, um, not nearly what I’ve come to expect from a Belgian Pale. This is perhaps too pale? Feel is tarty and dry with a thinner medium body with metalic notes all over the place. Thank goodness its only 11.2 oz, its gonna take awhile to get through this.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Diacetyl and dirty socks. not a good combo. Very unpeasing chalky palate. Belgian in origin only.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Hazy dark amber, no head - looks like sahti. Aroma has brown sugar, rye, hops, spices, a bit odd and chemical. Mouthfeel is flat - low carbonation. Hoppied, sour. Harsh in the finish, English bitter-like flavor. Dry malt character. Unbalanced and not very delicious.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Pours a hazy copper, fading to amber around the edges, with a medium white head. Cherry and wild yeast aroma, lemon and citrus, with a touch of spiciness. The cherry has only a faint tartness to it, more sweet, mild lambic barney tastes in the finish along with some banana esters. Light and fizzy on the palate.
