A blonde, opaque Belgian strong ale. Cidery nose, and apple notes in first taste. Soft and unobtrusive mouthfeel, which s typical for this style. Flavor becomes more alcoholic and strong at the finish, and so does the aroma. The alcohol is detected in the background but mellows as you sip it. A good standard. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2007
750 Ml Bottle-Cloudy orange/yellow color w/a large white head. Classic Belgian aroma. Sweet flavor of apricots, citrus, yeast, cane sugar, wheat, & spice. Long fullfilling flavor w/a somewhat dry finish. Good solid easy drinking Belgian. Alcohol is well hidden. SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Draught Yellow pour with great head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, spice. Flavor follows with less on the yeast. Smooth and refreshing. Good Belgian. BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2007
On tap at St-Pieter; Turnhout. Yellow to orange colored beer. Nice white head. Spicy aroma from the coriander. The flavor is more fruity (oranges) but also coriander is present. Also hop bitterness is noticeable. All very well balanced. scanovajr (754) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2007

750 ml bottle purchased at Monaghans. Poured like a classic Belgian with a huge fizzy head, a little more fizzy then I was expecting, with a cloudy orangey/yellow body. Aroma was loads of yeast with a spicy peppery character. Flavor was yeast, alcohol and had an aftertaste of peanuts (never had that in a beer before). Crisp dry mouthfeel but I was expecting more from this one and was slightly disappointed. boto (2263) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 3, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Draught @ Eulogy Tavern: Mine poured a hazy, golden color with almost no head and minimal lacing. Definitely some spice to the aroma. There is also notes of fruit and sweet malts. The taste is good. It is slightly bready and yeasty, with hints of fruits, as well as some coriander. Nice. ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle. Grassy near-Saaz aroma with an angular malt rising up. Murky golden body with sediment floating evenly in suspension, creamy rocky white head that clambers up the side of the glass. Sweet taste with a little alcohol seeping through, floral and spicy with coriander, orange peel, cinnamon, and estery fruit. Classy, subtle spice really is the story here. Light hops funking out the back end. Smooth, full body, dries out and ends like a lemony wit. Balanced and delicious! All three of the Achouffe beers I’ve had have been excellent; this is perhaps the best for everyday drinking. bdigital (659) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Pale golden-yellow in color with a small, rocky white head. There is a very nice lemony-peach aroma with hints of nutmeg and a mild maltiness. This is one of the best beers I’ve had as far as being refreshing, it is so light yet flavorful. Fizzy, muted fruit taste that is perfectly balanced. I could drink this all night if it wasn’t so carbonated. Good brew. b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2007
