Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2016
Keg at BD Sheps, 09/06/16. Clear golden with a decent off White head. Nose is candied fruit peel, cantaloupe melon, sweet malt, yeast esters, tangerine. Taste comprises light caramel, pinch of white pepper, candyfloss, Belgium yeast esters, tangy citric, light hopping, bubblegum. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light rising alcohol in the close. Solid for style ... never too sweet or cloying ... well worthy of its top 50 style status .... One of a few of this ilk I would happily return to!

Cybion (122) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Can, 12 fl oz. Pours light gold/amber, moderately cloudy, and with a little visible carbonation. White-ish head doesn’t stick around long. Sweet on the nose with a big fruity belgian yeast hit - lots of banana and other esters - maybe some apple. Sweet and buttery malt with a fair bit of honey, and of course the advertised spices - picking up some the coriander too. Little bit of booze as expected. Taste wise the flavour profile retains the sweet and buttery malt characteristic to begin with before giving way to a fairly spicy, almost peppery finish which lingers a while. Cloves and coriander again here with some more herbal notes coming in. Less booze on the taste than on the nose - very warming though. Medium to full-bodied with a thick, creamy texture yet surprisingly lively carbonation, which along with the added spice means this brew has a bit more bite than your average tripel. Love it!

Toomio (484) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Tiukka luostariolut. Hyvin kesäinen, mutta aika vahva. Jopa petollinen. Näitä kaksi niin tulee entinen Celica-kuski kolkuttelemaan aamulla.
