Hazy orange colour. Feels quite prickly and a little spicy. There some fruitiness there although itís not sweet. Some bitter orange peel citrus comes through in the finish.

Clear amber body with a small white head. Aromatic hoppy and yeasty aroma with apricot, honey, quite floral overall. Smooth medium palate with little carbonation. Malty sweet flavour with strawberry, apricot, spices (notably clove). Nice, a bit on the sweet side.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Restrained nose, golden ale with good head. In the mouth way too much residual sugar. The overall impression is cloying. I used the majority of the bottle as stock in some soup.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a large frothy white head, nice retention. Typical Belgian Blond nose, not wholly unlike Hopus with itís fresh floral hops. Supposedly just arrived at Kulminator, just released one week before I consumed it. Almost Tripel-ish in flavor, rather sweet and fruity with a moderate alcohol presence. Light floral hops, but only on the finish are they noticable. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, lingering spice notes further remind me of a Tripel. Leans to the sweeter side overall. Nice beer, but not a great one.
