Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Spices, fruits and a bit of yeast in the aroma. Cloudy golden color, with a fast disappearing white head. Warm spicy taste, with hints of yeast and some orange. Warm alcohol feel. This is a fine belgian blond ale.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2003
Orange and yeasty aroma. Fast disappating head, deep amber cloudy colour. Similar to standard Hoegaarden just a bit stronger and sweeter.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Lemon, yeast, touch of nuts and grapefruit in aroma. Tangy. Light body but flavorful despite that fact. Alcohol is well-hidden. Would be a wonderful summer "lawnmower" beer.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Spicy, citric aroma, some spicy hop along with the lemon, orange and tangerine accents, also some coriander and allspice, wheat malt and very light honeyish sweetness. Opaque medium golden orange color with a very creamy, bountiful, lasting head and lacing to match. Strongly fruity and spicy flavor profile, very citric and full of yeast esters including banana, clove, coriander and pepper, lots of juicy orange and bitter lemon. Some bitterness apparent towards the finish, which is also lightly astringent and warming. Palate is highly effervescent, body is medium-full. Rich, fruity, spicy beer. Akin to what Ive come to know as a "Double Wit". 33cl bottle, sampled at De Beiaard, Amsterdam, unfortunately quite a smoky environment.

sunevdj (4060) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Pours cloudy orange/yellow with a whitish head that dissapeared a bit too quick. Nice fruity (banana & peach) and sweet wheat aroma but still with a bitterness and warm alcohol notes. Quite full flavored. Dry finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2005
Tasted 30/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Leuven, Wellington. Extra cold bottle from a "specialist" belgian bar leaves a little to be desired. Murky orange gold with a thick pure white head that fades to a strong lacing. Peach and nectarine dominate the nose up front and later, as it warms, a strong alcohol aroma tending to ethanol. flavour is oranges and a touch of bubblegum with a little sour yoghurt from the yeast. Some pepper. Palate is pithy with a touch of anise. Could be so much better if I tried this one in the comfort of my own home.
