Hazy orange-brown, decent head. Red currant, rye-bread nose. Medium to full bodied. Bitter, grassy black currant leave - hoppy. Quite alcoholic. Malt shows up in the finish. A bit restless brew.
Pours gold with a white head. Smells orange peel, grass and dew. Taste was very fruity with some great spicey elements bringing up the finish. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2007 Faint sweet aroma, pours golden blonde. Tastes cotton candy, very sweet. A nice change from some blondes. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle from DA. Hazy light yellow colored. Nice white head with decent lacing left. Spicey and yeasty aroma. Light bodied. Light yeast flavors with a bit of citrus and spices. Nice. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2005
Clear golden with a creamy foam. Spicy and fruity aroma of oranges, banana and sweat. Estery flavour of oranges and banana with notes of grassy hops. Dencent belgian ale.

Beer #17 at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. I must admit I didn’t find this beer too exciting. Blonde colour. Hints of honey and yeast in the aroma, although quite restrained. Much the same in the flavour but a bit more prominent. Quite dry. Soft and easy drinking but ultimately it didn’t really go anywhere for me. I thought it might be trying to aim at a tripel style but didn’t quite make it. But its easy to be picky when the competition is as hot as it was as this festival.

Belgian Draught Beer Festival, Croydon, london. Quite a nice one. Pale amber-gold in colour. Nice slightly sherberty/lemony start, but not too sweet, nice peppery, yeasty characters towards the end. Fairly smooth otherwise, quite nice.
Medium wheaty aroma, with almost some banana esters. Gold with a white head. Wheaty clove spicy flavour. Fruity, and nice. HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Slightly murky straw golden color with great head and creamy lacing. Spicy malt nose with notes of coriander, orange, and plum. Same with the flavor with a creamy texture and smooth finish. Good beer. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle. Attractive packaging with wired-on champagne style cork. Lots of dark yeast lying in clumps on the bottom got my expectations way up. Poured creamy toasty gold colr with bright snowy-white head. Tickled and teased my nose with melons and tangerines and berries and malts. The taste made me think of heffies that come with lemons when you’re not paying attention (I wish they wouldn’t do that). A whole lot of carbonation going on here. In short, lots of the stuff that keeps a beer interesting. Taste was original, balanced, and distinct. My only subtaction was that the taste hung around too long. I could taste it an hour afterward, but that is a small thing and this one deserves praise.
