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.

Cobra (1100) - - JUN 30, 2003
Strange 500ml bottle with a pry off cap & a flip top cap as well. Stoneware bottle, not glass. Poured out a light golden -orangish color, with a tight, white head. Aromas mostly of tropical fruits, papaya, guava, pineapple, kiwi fruit, some banana, and anise. Tastes rather strong at first, like licorice, with a fruity background. Strong malt flavors as well. Peppery tang to it also. Finishes dry, but sweet. A really nice Belgian beer in my book. Too bad it's so expensive. $10 for a 500 ml bottle.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Cloudy light golden color. Not as spicy or strong as other belgian ales. Alcohol is strong for a 7.6 but overall a good ale that i would have again. Bottle is cool.

Very good Golden Ale. Not as many spice flavors as several other Begian ales but finishes well and a very drinkable beer.

Bottle. A cloudy orange color with a big foamy head with tons of rising bubbles. A yeasty, citrus, and bubblegum aroma with a dry spicy flavor.

CEZ (406) - Milano, ITALY - APR 28, 2003
Clear body, full amber colour. Rich head, quickly diminishing. Malty and floral aroma. A creamy sweet maltiness (bread) is the dominating flavor; the finish is a bit syrupy, revealing some alcohol that keeps lingering in your mouth.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a very invigorated off white head of small to medium bubbles and leaves no lacing as it recedes. It's body is a cloudy light brown color. It's aroma is one of hops and malt. It has a smooth taste wild a mild fore bite and no strong aftertaste. It went down pretty smoothly. It was a nice brew that should please a wide variety of people.
