Positively explodes out of the bottle as the EZ-Cap pops like a shot... Pleasant floral, citrus, perfumey, woody, leafy aroma with some notes of alcohol and iron. Focus is definitely on the hops but there is a musky honey character to the underlying malts. Opaque muddy copper-tan coloured body is topped by an immense, large bubbled white head that collapses to a lasting cover abandoning clouds of lace down the sides of the glass. Honey and floral sweetness up front are cut by a mild bitterness. Grainy, toasty, biscuity malts and wheat character emerge especially in the aftertaste along with a lasting impression of cookie-dough. Medium body is quite soft in texture. I expected hard prickly carbonation or none at all due to the huge blow-off when opening and pouring the bottle but I got neither. There is plenty of carbonation remaining and it is neither overly aggressive nor too subdued. Stemmed glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB 01-Jul-09, Bièropholie, Feb-05).

Pours deep clear amber brown with a malted bread nose. Medium nectar. Light on the froth. Flavors of coffee, brown sugar, wood, and tobacco. Dry with a tart yeasty finish. Drinks better warmed. rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2006
Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a rocky frothy beige head, leaving nice lacing, with a sweet caramelized malt, yeasty, brown sugar, dark fruity notes, hint of candied orange peels, and chocolate aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a toasted malt, caramel malt, toffeeish accent, brown sugar, dried dark fruit notes, with a sweet candied apples and chocolate truffles, leading towards an alcoholic warmth and low spicy hops finish.

Appearance:Hazy dark-amber,huge white head....
Flavor:Light sour flavor,fruity,bread,alcohol.... hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is of chocolate, dark fruits, light molasses and a touch of menthol. Chocolately, caramelly flavor. Adequately bittered for good balance. Notes of Luden’s honey cough drops and pralines. A tad tangy and salty too. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Finishes a bit thin.

Hazy copper-brown body with a filmy off-white head. Dark honey and caramel aroma. Very sweet, worty flavor. Based on this beer and the blonde, they’re obviously not attenuating their yeasts very well. This beer strikes me as half-finished with not much depth of character.

Clear deep reddy orange with virtually no head. Aroma is swet and candy like with a similar flavour. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2006
11.2oz. bottle. Hazy dark amber color with a huge, foamy off white head. Nice aroma of caramel, raisins and freshly baked bread. Mildly sweet malty flavor with lots of caramel, dried fruits and yeast. Finishes fairly dry. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2006
A Mes rate:
33cl bottle at Lowlander. Hoppy aroma with a hint of germoline. Great appearance. On the golden side of amber and a huge thick pillowy head no matter how gentle the pour coupled with the most ridiculous chunky lacing I have ever seen. Apple and slight spice in the flavour. Lovely spritzy mouthfeel with an unexpected creamy finish. Much better than the other Bon Secours I have tried. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Sparkling amber with persistant head. Aroma of spice, toasty malt, orangey hop, candy sugar. Fairly sweet in the mouth but with a licoricey astringency along with hop in the finish.
