The aromas and impressions are floral above all. Floral with a hunch of grass. It has a nice smell of apricots. Goes with almost everything that is steaked or grilled. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Hazy gold in color with a thin white head. Spicy yeasty hoppy aroma. Earthy, grassy notes. Sweet apricot malty flavor. Fruity caramel notes. Finish is yeasty. Medium bodied. Drinkable. Nisse666 (7328) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2009

Pours golden with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet pale malt, honey, biscuit malt, bubble gum esters and soapy, herbal hops. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. wheresthepath (2321) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
[750ml bottle at 7.2% from Beers of Europe that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Gold with copper hints, a large white head and a pleasant tingle of carbonation. It’s sweet and very spicy from the start, with Belgian yeast flavours also much in evidence and absinthe-like herbs in the background. Soft enticing mouthfeel despite the carbonation. A very enjoyable beer indeed.

Presentation: It was poured from a 750ml brown bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle has a bottle date of 09-28-09.
Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops.
Taste: There are dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel.
Notes: Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.

Bottled. Mildly skunked aroma, German hop, slight cauliflower, yam. Mild yeasty notes. Mostly dry. Big fluffy head. Oxidized, metallic notes sits atop what is otherwise a very pleasing flavor, bready, doughy, light and crisp and mellow. Despite the flawed aroma, this turns out to be a very nice drink. ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: First rating for this brewery, a great soft, subtle beer with nice blending of malts and spices. A great session beer but with care @ 7.8% ABV. Food Pairing: Cheese platter. davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle 330ml from la Grande Epicerie, Paris. Tasty beer. Aromas of caramel, hay, and straw. Taste is sweet and sour, with good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Yellow, with a thin head. Aurelius (5294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Straightforward, Belgian PA aroma -- tannic, sweetish, a little caramel, slightly floral, a little vanilla, slight banana and female sweat. Good 750ml bottle, handwork label. Candied, sweet, pear/pomaceous flavors, a little astringent, tannic. Slick, medium to slightly dense body, effervescent. This was not terribly complex. but really hit a sweet spot that I have for bitters and belgian PAs. On top of that, I got this at a clearance price of $1.99/750ml -- $1.99/750 ml is not a terrible price for malt liquor, much less a beer of this sophistication. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.
