bhensonb (14170) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange gold with a great frothy white head. Smells of citrus and vanilla. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavors are fairly mild. Citrus, light malt, maybe some clove. It’s a good beer, just hard to pin down. Ends on the bitter side.

FatPhil (14122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
330ml bottle (Cambrinus, Brugge)
6 classic sweet mild blond aroma.
4 Rich orange, sticky doughy head
7 Yes, I know this is Haacht, but this is a quality blond. Rich malty body, gently bitter hops, good balance.
4 Full palate, smooth and a little sweet. Pleasant carbonation. Finnish gently hoppy, certainly quite muted, but they are real green noble hops.
14 Solid Belgian Abbey beer. Covers the alcohol very well.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Clear orange body (though it becomes cloudy at the end of the pour) with small white head. Aroma is sweet -- orange and butterscotch. Taste is moderately sweet, mostly orange. Also some yeast and spice, and a hint of alcohol. Beer is much improved in the second pour -- most of the flavor seems to have sunk to the bottom of the bottle.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a slight dose of spicyness. Quite full and round mouthfeel. Sweet taste with flavours of ginger, anise and vanilla. Nice and good - quite refreshing for a Belgian Christmas beer.
