2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colored with a fluffy white head. The taste is slightly malty with notes of spices and fruits. Finishes kind of fast.

(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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours clean, blond with an impressive meringue like head. Banana and clove aroma with a hint of honey. Taste is honey with a hoppy aftertaste. Like a duvel but a little thinner in body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit dissapointing for a Belgian. Aroma is promising enough, with hints of banana and spice. Pours big white head and is golden in color. Seems a bit thin on the palate and the flavor lacks the depth of soul of the big Belgians. Not worth the large price I paid.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour a medium golden amber with a small, fizzy white head. Aromas of earth, soap, alcohol. Also, big citrus nose, but not nasty-hoppy citrus. Dryish finish that is more citrus sour than bitter. There's a wee bit of alky in hereah. Like having a monkey foot in your mouth. 750 mL with git yo slizzered. Flavor balances out as it gets warmer and you get drunker. Filthy monkey feet.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
I bought this beer because of the bottle. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) an orange golden with small head, maybe 3/8's inch. Better looking than some other blondes. Aroma is of corn and straw. Flavor has a bit of honey, but more pine, and then some more straw - nothing very strong, not too much to taste here, but a decent brew. Nothing special. Very drinkable, no hint of alcohol. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

This bottle is beyond cool. Clean it and use it for your own brew. Good golden beer. Fruity flavors. Tight head. Cool bottle is worth it.
