(500ml bottle) Sampled as the Grand Cru version at Smokeless Joe's in Toronto. Pours a medium, white head and a orange-copper body. Nose of vanilla, malt and slight whiskey. The 7.6% abv doesn't show through in the taste. Very Good!

Golden bronze colour. Aroma is toasty, slightly peachy, with additional notes of pear and a light spiciness. The palate is juicy in its maltiness. A little bit of alcohol shows, as well as a lively pear & apricot ester character.

Yellow cloudy colour. Taste of yeast and hop. An interisting beer but not amazing.

A very nice golden cloudy color, with a sick white head that isn't huge, yet stays around the entire time. Has a serious traditional belgian aroma to it, acid and hay. Has a thick leather belt body to it. Very nice, very refreshing.

Hazy golden coloured. Weak aroma. Yeasty. Thin and boring flavour. Very one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(I wish I'd got that bottle in the photograph).
Pale clouded orangey amber hue, some floaties, well carbonated and good head formation. Soft malty aroma with tropical and citrus fruits. Light flavored on the palate, sweet orangey fruits, well spiced, a little peppery. Pretty short in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
When they say golden they mean it. I was expecting a somewhat dark brew. truly golden color with a tall fluffy off white head. Very thin aroma. Yeast, old vegetables and light alcohol. Aromas somewhat like plum brandy. Lighter flavors as well, For once, it pains me, I have to agree with austinpowers, too much alcohol without enough substance to back it up. A belgian malt liquor.

Very complex beer and on the more expensive side but well worth it. A beer that I could drink again and again.
