An orangy golden hue. Mountainous foamy head that lasts. Fresh clean grassy/woodsy scent and nearly chlorine smell, like the hair of a young girl who just got out of the pool, but maybe that’s just the scent of summer I’m gettiing. Clean grassy pepper and hop at first sip with one of the best overall palates I’ve come across. The mouthfeel is fantastic. Fresh hop is always on the periphery, begging to be noticed. The palate to me is center-stage but just behind that is the wonderful aroma, which I gave an ’8’, and then looking back at my review of the Orval, which I gave a ’9’, that makes sense, because no brew has equaled the nose on that one. This is a very special brew, and I certainly prefer it to the classic Dupont, which I wish could be my affordable everyday beer. Love it. buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAR 26, 2009
Very beautiful rosy-appled-orange colour with a milky murky haze. Tangerine peel, apricots, cloves all greet the nose when poured and the head is soft, fluffy, and bountiful. Taste showcases candied fruits, melon, pepper, anise, slight hay and woodsy tones. Seems like a festive beer and good drinking all year ’round. Delightful.

75cl bottle. Hazy gold with a big, lasting white head. The aroma is just beautiful beer: hoppy, bready, malty, yeasty, spicy, fruity... The flavor is somewhat sweet and bready to begin, jammy in the middle, and then dry and lightly alcoholic, with bitter hops that leave an orange and spice flavor. The body is medium with ambitious bubbles. Almost brings in a tripel cameo before being firmly Dupont. Great stuff. grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
Bouteille de 750ml Dégusté à l’autre-oeil avec Viak et Glandine dans un verre tulipe. Apparence orange ambré avec gros dépôt de levure et une mousse intense et collante marquant chaque gorgé. Arômes floral d’agrumes au bouquet somptueux et herbacé. Un goût riche de poivre, de raisin, de fruits mûres et de levure fraîche, j’adore! Nordcore (1500) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2009

UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 (Bottle) Pours clear deep golden with a big, creamy off-white head. The aroma is full of dust, wood, citrus/orange/mild lemon, toasted white bread, coriander, and sweaty cheese. Barnyard-like tones of urine, wet earth, cow fur and cow droppings. Light citrus juicey sweet but otherwise chalk dry on the nose. A whisper of herbal hops. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and light to medium acidic. Tones of wood, orange/lemon citrus, barnyard and crackers alongside floral hints. The mouthfeel is medium carbonated, numbing alcohol-ish, dusty dry and light round. Dusty, citric an tart woody finish. Medium bodied. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2009

, Antwerp. An opaque golden beer with a dense and lasting two-finger white foam on top. Toffee-ish malt aroma. Notes of roasted almonds, yellow fruits and mild spices. Semi-dry wheaty malt flavor. Some light sweet lemon notes with a certain acidity. Earthy bitterness in the backbone. Medium body. Alcohol well masked. Light resiny and spiced ending. Nice stuff.
Fresh, citrus aroma, with hints of herbs. The color is hazy yellow and there is lots of foam. Flavor is fresh with herbs, with an interesting aftertaste with hops and caramell. dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2009

Linnet (1833) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2009
Golden colour, big off-white head, lacing. Aroma is malty, almost lagerlike. Still there is yeasty notes flowery notes, citric notes and also aroma of vinegar. Flavour is rather hoppy for being a belgian beer. There is also an acidic quality to it. ABV is evident without being dominant. The flavour is also spicy and fruity, perfume. Mouthfeel is very smooth with small bubbles and the liquid is very crisp.
