COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. I was expecting a lot from this one but i must confess that i was a bit disappointed in the end. Beautiful golden colour with a huge off-white head. Very lively. Fruity and yeasty aroma, very subtle but nice. Smooth taste but some lack of character. Some spiciness and a bitter end but flavours seem to be in the "wrong place". Enough body and a rather poor palate. Pleasant but not outstanding.

jcr (2286) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Draft. Clear, golden body with medium white head. Aroma was slightly spicy with notes of malt. The beer is big on spice, almost like a spicy lager. Minimum complexity. The body is thin. Short, dry finish. Good, but not a favorite Belgian ale.

leaparsons (8728) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2006
Bottle. Golden with a large fluffy white head. Aromas are alcohol followed by soft lemon, yeast and spices. Quite dry and hoppy. Flavours are sweet lemon that is soon replaced by lots of yeastiness and warming (almost harsh) alcohol. Some lemon sourness comes through although mostly its mellow lemon here. Has a pretty bitter finish with a dry finish. A nice beer to take your time with.
