Hazy dark straw colour. Slightly barny, baguettey nose with ample continental hop goodness. Sweetish pale malts on the palate with a bitter, earthy, yeasty, dusty, bready character. Really pleasurable drinking. mcberko (17205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
750mL bottle, pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, yeast, citrus and floral hops. Flavour is similar featuring barnyard funk, yeast, citrus, floral hops, slight bitterness, very well-balanced. Great for the style. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Cardinal. A dense, off-white head of two-finger size sits patiently on top of a lightly hazy, golden body with an orange tint. Citrus peel, a touch of spicyness, alcohol and a firm maltyness in the aroma. Seems there’s some wheat in there too. Nice carbonation, full body and a pleasant little warmth towards the end. Pleasant bitterness all the way, orange peel, and a little spiced touch in the flavor. Quite lasting finish. A tasteful and almost quenching beer even though it’s both a bit sweet and high in alcohol. 120627 jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours apricot gold with white head. Nose/taste of lemon, yeast, breads, coriander, banana and spicy hops. Finishes a tad dry. Medium body. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy pale golden color with a fluffy white head and some spotty lacing.
S: The nose is very heavy on the clove and coriander with some spicy hops. There is a bit of breadiness to it as well.
T: The spices completely dominate the flavor. There’s a very earthy flavor to the beer as well. These two factors really overwhelm everything else, unfortunately.
M: The body is medium with a crisp, dry carbonation and feeling on the tongue.
D: This beer just seemed too heavily spiced for its own good. The base of the beer is overshadowed by these flavors.

Bottle, 6.25%. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Big stable chalk white head. The flavour is grassy and hayish. Medium bitterness. The yeast does not taste very Belgian. Quite clean and pleasant, but not very flavourful. Too clean, I guess. Benzai (15460) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012

Aroma of grassy hop, peach, apricot, pale malt, yeast. Honey? Slightly hazy orange tinged gold color with a decent white head that laced just a little. Medium body with thin, but creamy, carbonation. The flavor is astringent (not exactly a flavor, but ...) with peppery spice, floral hop, and pale and/or bready malt. The finish is also a bit astringent, decently dry, and has a floral/bitter hop aspect. It’s really, really, a pleasure.
