sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 (Bottled, 7.5% ABV) Opaque amber color with a medium, creamy head. A spicy aroma of clove and ginger, plus some caramely, pale maltiness and yeast. Fruity and spicy, nicely balanced flavor with quite rich maltiness, cloves, lime and orange-peel. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A well-balanced and enjoyable, slightly sweet and orange-spicy brew.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 17, 2005
nice fairly dry beer reminiscent of a strong Blonde. Mild spice is counter balanced by some soft fruits and muls acidity. lemon and mango with a bit of perfumy floral note on the palate. Nice clean and dry finish that briefly lingers.

Besides beautiful beer, Belgium can be proud of bringing into being another exceptional invention, the saxophone, courtesy of Adolphe Sax. So, I lift this glass and raise it to Bird, Lester, Coleman, Coltrane, Sonny, Ornette, "the Jug", and the other giants of the golden horn. Straw gold color, half opaque, immense head, incredible effervescence...gorgeous. Nose is mostly spice and a little sidecar of fruit, pleasurable enough for repeated sniffs...airy, angelic...lovely. Taste? Id say "yum", but Ive run that into the ground lately...big, juicy citric flavor matched with tingly spice (cardomom, coriander, ?) Ripe fruit, develops beyond citrus into peach,. apricot....delicious. Mouthfeel is warm, full, if finally fading, and always replete with flavor, a ciric kick, and zesty effervescence. Never tastes like 8% abv, until the end...you want another, and another, but itll make you feel it tomorrow! All in all, a very satisfying golden ale..

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2005
33cl. bottle. Crystal clear, light golden color with a small white head. Earthy, yeasty aroma with some citrus and banana. Flavor was initially mildly sweet, then turns somewhat tart. Coriander, citrus, malt and freshly baked bread are the flavors that stand out to me. Very good.

Small Bottle served in Orval Chalice Hazy golden with a thick fluffy head that settles to a island right above the carbonation point etched in the stem. Yeasty chamomile aroma. The taste is strong alcohol almost malt liquor like. Strong yeast flavor and very dry. I think it was a little past its prime ( i could not find a date on the bottle)

jefcon (1684) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2005
The color of rich spun gold, slightly opaque. White foamy head. Aromas of french toast and some citrus. A slightly sweet taste gives way to gentle hops, malts and a nutty finish. Again, all the components of french toast are present. If it were lighter, the beer would have many of the same characteristics of a sauvignon blanc. My only complaint is a little too much carbonation -- which isnt the brewers fault here. Not astringent in the least, complex and deep. A great beer I enjoyed very much.
