Very attractive beer: deep gold-orange with a large head initially reducing to a lather head. Orangy fruit nose with some yeast and grain. Thinner malt-front than expected, but it bursts quickly into a spicy zing: cloves and cinnamon, maybe pepper. Some citrus tone. Good balance.

Golden and sweet with a citrus, floral, and peachy flavor. Not much else to say. Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2004
22 oz bottle-pours a bright orange hue with a nice big-bubble slightly off-white head. big sweet, candy sugar aroma-big banana. The flavors are like that of a belgian tripple-lots of sweetness, banana, yeast esters. very complex, but not all that well balanced. I got a peppery note in the finish. This beer is just too sweet for me to drink again. After i poured the yeast into the chimay glass, there was a bigger banana aroma going on. Avery did a good job here, just tone down the sugary sweetness and this is a find BSA. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Golden/orange in color with a medium sized white head. Smells of apricots
and spice. Tastes very sweet with a
hint of apricot. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Golden appearance with a moderate head. The flavor is very acidic like heartburn in a bottle. A very sour flavor is present. Lemons and more lemons. More decent stuff from Avery.

Nice cloudy golden color,medium sized head that lasted for some time and then slowly fading to a decent lace.The aroma was fruity and spicey with a decent flavor of light malt but mostly fruit and spice coming through as well as a mild hop taste towards the end.Not a bad brew but not exactly what i’m looking for eather.Decent enough to try again though in the distant future. millerclmb (44) - Boulder, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Nice orangy color with hints of copper. Smells of fresh citrus and a peachy hint. Soft fruity sweetness....a little fizzy and would go well with a light chicken or pasta dish.
Good sweet beer to introduce to a girl friend...use like champagne. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Candi suagr and flowers. Good, deep golden. Doughy, yeasty sweet with clean floral finish like eating a daisy. Not complex. beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2004
This is a good Belgian Strong ALe. Spicy, malty, and citric flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and bitter. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Bottle. pours copper and slightly hazy with a thick white head. apricot is the dominant aroma. flavor is surprisingly refreshing. has a grape and spice flavor that finishes hoppy.
