25cl. bottle: The beer pours a golden color, with maybe a tinge of orange in there. A bit of a white, frothy head that subsided quickly. Lots of bubbles on the side of the glass. A lightly spicy aroma. Some sweetness also. The taste is a light caramel, with the still unidentified spices. Tasty, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

This was a really interesting beer. I expected something similar to Bio Jade, but this is quite different. Interesting, "Belgian" even nose, fine head, yeasty flavor with maybe some subdued spices. A bit sourish, too. Not great, but good, and as I said, quite interesting. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Pilsener golden with a limited head. Lots of malt, yeast and some slight citric notes. Sweetish and full-bodied with some musty notes. 110505 IndianaRed (5127) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 6, 2005

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2005 Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of tupalev from boutip. Poured clear gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is very sweet, intensely floral, hint of caramel malt, hint of oak, ginger, pepper and yeast as it warms. Taste is a little plain - sweet, all the promise of spice fails to arrive, some yeast at the very end. Mouthfeel watery, syrupy - maybe a little peppery. Smels nice.

Pours a clear golden/ light brown with a white head. Substantial lacing. Medium sweet- and sourness. Vague aromas of malts spices. Dry finish. Lacks in spice- and boldness. strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle in Avignon. Good for drinking in a park, with a spread of cheese and crackers (until the ranger comes along and scolds you in French for a bit). Nice and smooth with a good bit of fruitiness. BuckeyeBoy (8861) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle Pours out a gold topped with a white head. Aroma of malts and light fruit. Tast of light malts some fruit sweetness and a little spice. MakeItDrinkIt (66) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Crystal clear golden color with thin white head. Aroma is Belgian spicy yeast - slightly sweet, a touch floral. Flavor is spicy - maybe some Saaz hops? Fairly dry, decent hop bitter but overall very well balanced witha big malt presence. Finish is fairly dry, but not crisp. Some notes of vanilla and honey also present.

Bottle - 750mL - corked and caged. Pours a soft amber. Small white head forms. Aroma is soft peppery spice, earthy and spicy hops, yeast and some musty and dusty notes. There’s touches of caramel and grains as well. Taste is spicy and lightly herbal with more earthy and spicy hops, some lightly floral hops and light caramel. There’s some grain and yeast as well, but it gets interesting as some Asian food-like flavors begin to appear. So much so that I think this would pair very well with Asian food. Body is light-medium, lively and has a somewhat dense carbonation. Finishes with more spicy notes, caramel, Asian food, grasses, floral notes and yeast.
