Canned. Golden colour, big white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, glueish and some yeast. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some sugar and malts. A very pleasantly balanced beer. As it gets warmer also some spices and slight honeyish hints become present.

Marko (5269) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 23, 2006
0.33l bottle bought at a store in Split
Poureda golden colour, with a big thick, firm white head that collapsed at a medium to slow pace, leaving tons of lacing. Almost fizzy at first. The nose is quite nice at first, coriander and malt dominate it. Its a bit herbal (hops probably), orange peel and some dusty/yeasty hints. The taste starts off grainy, with a pleasant sweetish background, weak hints of hops and some even weaker lemony acidity, noticable metal, weak apple, some oiliness. Didnt impress me much. Hapkin, by the same brewery is much nicer. Smooth, and kinda pleasant, but the flavour profile just isnt good enough to keep me interested.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2006
From the bottle this poured a pale amber body with a respectable head that performed some interesting spotty lacing. The nose is rich with sweet malts, aged peaches, and fresh apples. Quite a thick mouthfeel to it and somewhat oily. The flavor is rife with sharp malt, pineapple, fresh peaches, and a touch of alcohol. Near the end a citrus zest bitterness emerges that lasts long into the finish. Very nice.

MissKicha (5) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2007 does not count
Bottled. Drank in Belgium. Golden with a very slight chill haze. Very thick white head. Slightly spicy with some mild fruit in the nose. Light effervecence. Some honey mixed with a little acidic bitterness. The back has some sugar and another hit of slight bitterness. A great Belgian strong ale - but doesnt age well in the bottle. A definite session beer that is much more pleasing than a Duvel or similiar.

kopestes (164) - Braine lAlleud, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Clear yellow color with medium head that diminished quickly but didnt fade away completely. Some spotty lacing. Malty aroma. Taste is sweet in the beginning and citric and spicy in the middle and end. Pleasant long, spicy-sweet aftertaste. Nice ale.

33cL bottle. Golden beer that had a fruity quality from aroma, taste and finish. More fruit flavor than I was expecting.

(Bottle, 12-10-06) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a moderate egg-white head. Aroma of musty cellar, florals, and caramel. Flavor of malt, spicy yeast, and butter with a dry finish.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2006
Deep yellow coloured beer with an explosive white foam. Nose is dry malty and has a refreshing accents of frech fruits and minty herbs. The taste is on de dry side but has a mild touch of slight bitter fruits. In the finale there is a interesting bitterness of hops and herbs. This is a verry strong tasting blond beer with a long finish.
