Hazy blond color. Flowery and a bit fruity aroma (yellow fruits, banana). Malty, some sourness, coriander. Good, not exceptional. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Golden color with a big creamy head. Smells clean and fresh with a hint of
chamomile? Nice balance of malt and hops. Somewhat fruity, with a dry finish. lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2004
Good strong ale (8,5%).A nice yellow (Duvel-like)color and a fine hoppy aroma.It has a full taste,it is light and malty and ends with a nice hop taste. Ungstrup (38867) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2004
A hazy light orange beer with an OK white head. The aroma is sweet spicy with dominant notes of coriander. The flavor is sweet matly - too sweet for my liking - with notes of spice most dominant is coriander. It is very carbonated. The sweetness from the high alcohol content is not hidden very well in this beer. madsberg (11798) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004
Bottled: Light golden coloured. Huge white head. Yeast, malty, some spices and light fruitnotes in the aroma. Fruit, sweetness, malt and some yeast notes in the flavour. Has a light alcahol bite in the end. Alcahol well hidden.

Poured champagne like golden with big with bubbles. Aroma is mostly yeast, with a mild caramel. Full flavored tastes of sweeet honey, malt and licorice. Very nicely masked 8.5% just begs you to drink more. Very nice stuff indeed. steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2004
Pours strawlike golden with fluffy white head. Slightly hoppy with floral nose. No comparison with Duvel. This beer didn’t live up to it’s expectations. PorterPounder (8356) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
Cloudy, light golden pour with a fizzy white head. Perfumy, flowery aroma with a buttery finish. Smooth tasting, with some sweet elements - cotton candy perhaps? Aftertaste has a bit of licorice in it. Yeast is evident, but kept at bay, carbonation a tad on the heavy side. Good, solid drinkable Belgian. Aurelius (5651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
Yeasty, floral, cakey, somewhat chemical aroma. Light, pale wheaty color, fairly even suspension with some larger chunks. Kinda cool label. Tart, moderately sweet, honey notes, sweet-tart candy over sharp alcohol bitterness. Good body, fairly quick finish is malty with residual fruit quality. Some silly putty phenols left on the lips. SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Very clear dark yellow/golden color, effervescent with small white bubbles, yeast was in medium size chunks when sediment disturbed... aroma was slightly sweet, low caramel, raw honey/wild flowers... taste was slightly solventy from the high alcohol, hops were very mellowed (old bottle), hops and German-style maltiness both present (unique for a Belgian beer: cara-vienne malt?) but came across separately and not well blended... beer seemed somewhat out of style for a Golden Ale (as it is claimed to be), which is why I gave it a low score in the overall category.
