Somewhat opaque, golden yellow, white lacing foam head. Barley aroma with some sour notes. Decent beer taste, again little sour tones present, small citrus too. (Arnhem 201411)

dmac (6392) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2014
11.2oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a slightly murky slightly brown/yellow body with a larger bright white frothy head. Aroma is sort if lemony urinal puck, Belgian yeast, berries, corriander. Rather fizzy body, aggressive carbonation, lighter body. Flavor is perfumey, dry old bread, crusts, berries, corriander, Belgian yeast. Meh, its okay but not loving the fizzy body.

Digzis (109) - Nancy, FRANCE - NOV 20, 2014
Une très bonne surprise pour cette bière bien équilibrée et avec une belle personnalité malgré le taux d’alcool assez faible pour mon goût. Amertume comme il faut, légère acidité, et des notes de citron et de poivre qui lui donnent un côté herbacé très agréable et rafraîchissant. Bref, une bière de consommation courante de très bonne qualité.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has light spice...coriander...slight grassiness...sage. Flavor follows suit...mild and clean and slightly herbal. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and herbal.

SinH4 (5610) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2014
Hazy yellow color with huuuge head. Spicy-yeasty, hoppy citrus aroma. Taste is light, a bit more citrus, bitter oranges, marmalade. Light body, slightly metallic finish. Decent, but a bit boring.

v.zoltan (124) - HUNGARY - NOV 10, 2014
Narancssárga szín, ujjnyi tömött fehér hab. Illata citrusos és korianderes. A szénsav teljesen belesimul. Íze élesztős határozottan fűzseres, leginkább borsos.

AROMA: aroma with significant esters reminiscent of oranges and pears, mixed with peppery and spicy notes. low floral hop aromas. APPEARANCE: pale yellow color and hazy. large moussy head with average retention. TASTE: a blend of fruity flavors (oranges and pears) with spicy (coriander) and peppery notes. low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a traditional belgian golden ale with nice aromas and flavours.
