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.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2003
cloudy orange colour, fine dense head and a beautiful lace, deep fruity aroma (apple and litchies), yeasty, lot of carbonation, acidic with a robust finishing bitterness, medium-bodied, the finish is long, fruity and dry - refreshing and quite marvellous !
Earlier Rating: 11/19/2001 Total Score: 3.8
hazy golden-orange colour with a big white creamy head and a beautiful lacing; strong honeyish and bready aroma with light spicy notes (anise); very creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation; sweet with a robust malt body, a touch of finishing sourness brings some balance; long gready and spicy aftertaste - quite on the sweet side but very good

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2003
Very pale colour, white head. Citrus aroma, dito flavour. I'm sorry, but I can't understand why the other raters rate this beer so high. Never again.
