Draught at the brewpub. Bready notes, citrus pulp, light apricot, spicy, crisp, underlined bitterness. Excellent. bierkoning (13387) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Malt and apricot aroma. Full bodied. Apricot flavor at first, followed by a strong maltiness and a fair deal of hops. Some licorice. Just a bit sweetish and a hint of alcohol. Lovely well balanced beer, emphasizing the fruity maltiness. Expensive ($ 5,- per half litre in the shop), but well worth the money.
From tap (Arendsnest Amsterdam) the beer disappointed somewhat. Traubenzucker in the aroma. Flowery flavor, somewhat perfumed. Reasonably well hopped and seasoned, just a bit on the sweet side.
I was also less satisfied with a bottle tasted in 2008. Orange color, slightly perfumed aroma of tangerine and coreander. Sweetish, perfumed spicy flavor. malt and coreander. Citrus fruit. Not unpleasant, but too perfumed for my taste. caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 Slightly hazy orange color, short lasting head. Very spicy aroma, some yeast which is typical for de hemel, some caramel malts, quite peppery, nutmeg. Spicy and yeasty taste, some orange. Nice palate. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2004
Dark golden with nice head and lace. Fresh, fruity (peaches), hoppy and yeasty nose. Fruity flavor with a bitter-dry finish. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2005
Golden colour. Pours with a big head. Spicy hop aroma. The sweetness is (over-?)balanced by almost harsh bitterness. The body is more than medium and it is soft on the palate. A better than average blond, though the flavour does not quite live up to expectations from the appearance and the aroma.

A dark orange beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is very yeasty and very sweet with notes of berries and spices especially coriander. The flavor is very sweet and spicy - again with coriander standing out, but also contains notes of peach and something I can’t figure out. The mouthfeel is smooth and the end is dry and sweet. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
reddish appearance with mild head. flavor is malty with a large sweet component with a mild hop appearance, but decently balanced. bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2009
Dangerously delicate & refreshing for a beer of 6.5%. On the nose light spice & malt, & a pure gold in the glass. The palate is rounded with hints of perfume, spice & malt with a delicate sweetness. The finish is clean & fresh with a nice bitter dryness. The weight In the mid palate gives a slight sense of the strength, but the delicate style & fresh clean, dry finish makes this a great summer beer. Is it too expensive? probably Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some biscuit and toffee notes. The flavor is similar with some toffee, grass, alcohol and ginger. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2013
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells sweet, syrup, bit orange and yeasts. Tastes vanilla, very smooth and orange. Nice bitter finish. Low carbo, thin body and a dry texture.
