Parket (581) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2010
50 cl bottle, golden/orange colour with nice and foamy white head. Smell: yeaste. Taste: sweet, yeasty, fruity, alcohol and grainy. Not a special one in its style.

7,6% alc. 50 cl bottle bought at Alcampo, served in La Trappe chalice. Pours copperish amber with huge ivory head. Aroma is orange, iron filings, cookie dough, white flowers. Round, full-bodied, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Long lasting. Not bad, although it seems too expensive to me (6,30€ per half litre). I agree that it comes with a nice bottle one might keep for water, though.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle (750ml). Poured sparkling golden orange with a large frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of floral hops with lemon zest, pears, apple pie, cinnamon, coriander and some straw. Flavor was of sweet bready malts with a very light bitterness, lemons, dried apricots, candy sugar, cinnamon, cloves and light notes of coriander. Very well masked alcohol content. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a decent length finish. Far to sweet for my liking – not nearly bitter or spicy enough to balance itself out IMO.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2009
Everything to be expected from the type of ale, but not enough complexity to merit special mention. Yeasty with a little orange peel hint, but the sweetness is the dominant reaction. Not quite as bad as a Kronenbourg Blanc, but should have been better.

Bottled. Golden coloring (duh) with a very nice hop note. Nice finish. Good brew.

Cloudy peach, has a fruity aroma. Taste is mild fruit, a little watery mouthfeel. Has an interesting bottle.

Looked flat from the start and it was. No carbonation and just to smooth. I guess the fanncy ceramic bottle does not work.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2009
My first $20 beer! Bought and enjoyed after a long day of hiking in Cortina, Italy - I figured I deserved the best beer in the store. Well, light orange with a medium head and a very intriguing aroma that was sweet, floral yet still with the presence of alcohol. Taste was a bit sweeter than I would have liked, but it wasn’t cloying and quickly disappeared, and the finish was nice and dry. Still, I felt kind of ripped off - the "clay bottle" was ultimately meaningless, and Unibroue makes better beer at a fraction of the cost.

This beer poured a dark golden color and man, if that head ever stopped coming out of the bottle, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to tell you the huge bubbly head was off white and subsided quickly and left some nice lace. A good deal of carbonation and sediment present. The aroma was of hops and fruit, mostly apricot. The flavor was of hops and citrus with a slightly astrigent finish on a medium body.
