pivo (2689) - GERMANY - NOV 4, 2005
Grassy, yeasty nose with aromas of cracked grains. Hazy orange color with a tight clingy white head. Thin orange tasting malt body, some apricot. Bitter end - actually very bitter - from hops (and yeast) creating a nice spicy effect. Enjoyable, but a little too thin maybe. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
A Mes rate:
33cl bottle at Lowlander. Spruce and evergreen aroma. Cloudy golden body with an excellent head and lashings of lace. Quite citric in the flavour and especially in the finish which eventually becomes spicy and floral. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
Bottle at Plan B, RBESG, August 2005. Dark gold, tending towards orange in colour. Yeasty and fruity ester aroma. Maybe acidic, unripe apples. More lemony on the palate. Quite zippy and zesty, but some sweetness as well. Touches of spice. Some sappy hops jostle their way into the picture and make their presence felt, although quite subtly. Slightly earthy mouthfeel. Dries out on the finish. Drinks very easily. No complaints from me.

330ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku)
Light orange, little head. Huge ginger and sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is disappointing initially - a bit alcoholic, but mellows later. Leaves hops, which is nice. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle in Quinns. Aroma is spicey and fruity yeast, typically belgian. Taste is similar, but its balanced enough to mak it drinkable and interesting.

beertje. Nice beer, looks a bit like a pilsener. Golden colour and nice and stable white head. Very nice spicy and fruity smell. The beer is easy drinking with nice fruity and spicy notes. Abricots, grainy, yeasty and soft grassy.
330 ml bottle. Fruity aroma with citrus, pear, honey, golden malts, and a bit of spice. Deep orange-gold with lots of little floaties and a low, lacy head. Sweet, malty flavor, honey, lemon, sweet bread, pears and peaches; quite yeasty, thick and heavy, oily palate, slight hop botterness in the finish but I would appreciate much more. ok, but rather boring and gutless.

Carefully poured, this beer is golden orange w/ quite a bit of haze and some particulates. The head is fully and white and leaves behind little splotches of lace. Nose is quite nutty--lots of almond extract esp.--w/ a slight tartness and a bit of citrus character. The taste is not far from that w/ a bit of earthy bitterness to finish things out. Lightly sweet and medium bodied w/ strong, prickly carbonation, this is a beer w/ some weight but one that still retains a good deal of drinkability. This is a pretty tasty Belgian and one I won’t mind trying again. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2011
On tap at Moeder Lambik. Hazy gold with medium head. Nose of hops and pine. Sweet fruit nose. Taste of fruits, hops and water. Quite nice beer. madmitch76 (26465) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
