Very hazy gold appearance. Lovely looking beer as you enjoy it. Great head retention and lively in the glass. Fairly nondescript aroma to begin with, nothing more than yeasty malt, but does release some soft fruit eventually. Flavour is great - fantastic bitter hop profile reminiscent of some german pils / lagers but with a sweet fruity backbone more like a belgian abbey ale, but creamier. Some melon in there somewhere. Decent bitterness to finish, nice mouthfeel. One of the best beers I’ve had in quite a while actually. YES. Dorqui (2257) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 19, 2007
<Bottled 0,33L. Good head and optimal aspect with hazy and torbid amber color. Aged and pleasant scent of malt, wine cellar and stum. A lot perfumed and full of flavor with good alcoholic but balanced content.
Sweet and resistant final with light notes of liqueur. fiulijn (20701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Amber color; creamy head. Nice malty aroma, a bit alcoholic, cognac. Malty taste, a bit sweet and really bitter. Very long final. Solid. Belgian quality: a good beer! KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2009
Light amber, orange color. Nice fine head. Good lacing all the way down.
Amber malt aroma, earthy, farmland, yeast. Nutty as well, with a touch of chocolate. Also fruits-apple, maybe pear?
Good malt flavor, earthy, grassy biere de garde flavor. Some fruit and a touch of citrus as well. Good hop finish. This might have slightly better hops, though. Very dry and also refreshing. The alcohol is also noticeable, with a warming sense in the mouth. Great balance and good body as well, heavily carbonated. Leighton (21492) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours clear gold. Malty nose and flavor. Very sweet, notes of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Medium bodied and almost flat.

A slightly sweet aroma. This is an eh beer. Some malts and a hint of alcohol but not really a lot of distinguishable flavor characters. The fact that these are all biere de gardes explains the weird flavors that I knew but couldn’t quite identify. Geiserich (4532) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 22, 2005

Aroma is fresh and sourly. Notes of citrus peel. Light yellow, light hazy color. Small foamy head. Fresh, sourly, light fruity. Notes of appels and citrus peel. Finish is dry, light astringent, sourly. Light cider feeling. Nice refreshing drink.
33 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is lemonish and light malty. Flavour holds a nice fresh lemon note and an almost spiced yeasty note, yet this comes from the apparently added chinook hops. Ends with a light fruity lingering finish and a light spice note.

bottle from Village de la Bière Strasbourg. Hazy amber colour with some floaties, lovely creamy and persistent head. Fruity nose with hints of caramel. Solid malty base with lots of caramel, vanilla, honey and herbs like thyme and rosemary. Interesting combination of malty sweetness with the caramel and the herbal accents. A rather complex and very nice brew. Finishes with lots of caramel and chocolate. saxo (18945) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber and lots of small particles. Aroma and taste are fruits, yeast, perfume, soap and malt.
