Golden pour. Sweet aroma of malt, yeast and honey. Flavor is yeasty, sweet, apples. Pretty good stuff. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Hazy golden pour with huge, fluffy, 4-finger white head. The head looked like the La Chouffe Houbblein head. Aroma of candi sugar, pale malt, yeasty funk, spicy florals. Tastes grainy malty, dry, with a lot of hopcitrus, floral, and spicy notes. Dry, floral, citric palate. BVery (10500) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Murky light orange pour. Smaller white head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, a little booze, and some spice. Picking up a hint of veggie soup broth as well. Carbonation is maybe a touch lacking. Slightly syrupy yet not too dense in the body. Decent enough beer, but not great. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s warm golden with a huge, white and lasting head. The aroma has sweetness and it’s spicy and perfumed. The flavour has sweetness and notes of citrus, malt, yeast, spices, and the overall impression is perfumed, but pleasant. JorisPPattyn (9982) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2004
Muddy orange, end of bottle full of UFO’s; huge dense, off-white head. Sourish, wheatish smell (or another of the six...), citrus zeste. A bit scorched, very much citrus zeste, quite sharp taste. Then filling in, getting sweet and spicey retronasal. Spices (unidentifiable) impose themselves in the finish, to the detriment of the balance and making the beer again more sharpish-bitter. Very well-bodied, nearly porridge-like, slick. In the aftertaste, the scorched flavours disappear. One of the better Van Steenberge commanded beers. It is supposed to be a 100% original recipe, which is a rarity for this brewery.

bottle. Best before 2003. Pours clear blonde/amber, some floaties due to the age. Smell is intense, oxidized and madeira. taste is bitter, and sharp. Surprising ! MF is thin, but the carbo is still very prominent. The madeira is there in the back, next to the residential sweetness and the oxidized malts. OK, still. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2004
Six different grains eh? Although there is something a little different I can't quite describe, this is another one of those Belgian gold coloured ales that hide the alcohol content very effectively. Quite spicy throughout, bittersweet finish. Pretty nice stuff. Bottled.

11.2 ounce bottle. A big fluffy white head lingers a long time. Sticky lacong remains. The beer is golden and not quite clear. A nose of nice fruit and nose tingling spices. Peaches and syrup. Funkiness is tasted and it is pleasant. That fruot, too. Raisins are tasted and this is grainy. Some pepper is noted late. Hops are very soft. The spice is tasted under all else. This is nice. I just wish it were a bigger bottle. caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2003
Cloudy golden color, with a medium-size longlasting creamy head. Aroma is sweet, cheesy, citrus. Taste is citric, spicy, bit sharp of alcohol perhaps. Palate is lasting, sweet spices with a touch of alcohol. Triple like beer, which is pretty good and recommendable. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle, best by 3/20/08: Pours a slightly hazy golden bronze with a clingy, spotty-lacing airy white head. Sweet, biscuity Belgian malty nose has some earthy grassy notes and doughy yeast. Body starts fairly average with a touch of sweet, bready caramel malt and some grapey notes. Has a touch of earthy funk toward a drier finish. A pretty interesting brew.
