Bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours a clear copper color with a good yellow/white head. Sweet aromas of candied lighter stone fruits. Medium body with coarse carbonation. The flavor is not all that sweet, seems slightly bitter, and lightly spicy. A very tasty ale. caesar (7274) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2008

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 33cl, exclusive brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex, balanced, cloudy, good head, the best of the Serafijn-range, but not a topper ChainGangGuy (4925) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a medium-sized, dense, off-white head.
Smell: A touch of lemon, more than a touch of orange. Also notes of orange blossom honey, light caramel, and yeast (though only everso slightly).
Taste: Light caramel and honeyed maltiness with a medium sweetness. Small pinch of lemon zest. A full helping of orange oil. Slight yeast character. Restrained bitterness. A bit peppery near the end. Lingering orangey taste on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated.
Drinkability: Oh, it’s not so bad, really, though it could stand to use a greater depth of malt character.

An orange appearance with a carbonated white head. The aroma reminds me of fruit cake with some spices, dark fruit, and orange peel. The flavor contains some peaches, apricot, oranges, and spices. The mouthfeel is a bit sugary and carbonated. Overall I really enjoyed this beer. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2008

Pours a transparent copper orange with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty Belgian caramely malt with a touch of light fruity esters. Body starts very effervescent and semi-sweet with some caramely notes before a drier, more bitter finish. Needs more body and complexity. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2008
