Very nice. Not as many flavors as other Belgian blonde ales, but quite well done all the same. Not too much alcohol tast, and a nice balance yeasty note.

Rebranded holiday growler. Truely goldenbody with beer goggle haze. Aroma was a clone of flavour, both with lovely sweet citrus and mild yeast. Good solid head that follows most of the way down.

Appearance: golden color. Medium head, white color, airy and not much lasting. Aroma: yeast mainly, with banana, bubble-gum and mineralized notes. Malty underground and fruity aromas like oranges and papayas. Spicy smells like coriander. Flavor: malty start. Intensive in yeast with notes of bread, banana, bubble-gum and bicarbonate (light). Light dryness from hops with herbal, grapefruit peel and coriander reminiscences. Mineralized aftertaste. Palate: light to medium body and medium carbonation. Remark: disappointment beer, the beautiful bottle and the high price create big expectations.

gift from my brother. Not impressed with this beer. Pours golden pee color. Fly might like to shower with it. Too sweet and alcoholic for my liking. Somebody said grape juice like and that’s accurate.

CEZ (411) - 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.

MarkBarnes (402) - Waterville, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Dec. 28, 2014; packaged in a weighty ceramic stein; tumbler glass. Golden pour (go figure) with shallow head & moderate lacing. Full aroma of overripe fruit & malt. Slightly sour; good bitterness, with some astringency. Not a world-class Belgian, perhaps, but quite enjoyable nonetheless - would have this again.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2010
Stone bottle, 50 cl, alone. Blond, hazy beer with a medium white head that lasts. Taste is one of refreshing grains ans hops, little malty also, which makes you think of a good beer. The beer itself isnít bad indeed, but canít fill the expectations I had. Nice grainy taste, malty on the background and light hoppy in the end, but lacks depth in the palate and the taste. After a while the beer becomes a bit monotone. Nice to drink on a hot summerday inbetween, but there are better ones in this style for sure.

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.
