Pours a cloudy orangey blonde color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of hops, honey and flowers. Good flavor of honey, flowers and hops, there’s some sweetness too and some bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. thornecb (5911) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Pours gold into a Trappist glass. White head with medium retention leaves no lacing as it recedes to hug rim. Candi and hop aromas. Crisp and well balanced with upfront caramel and a lasting resin finish. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy Ibrew2or3. Pours a hazy golden with a one finger white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2008
750 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is esters, yeast, and spice. Flavor is much of the same with some light malt sweetness in there. Palate seems a tad thin and dry. Medium body. A nice beer. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2008

750 bottle from Tops Tempe. Pours bright gold with a small white creamy head. Nice spicy, funky, Brett (?) nose. Taste is bitter, a bit alcoholic but not overbearing, tart, a bit tangy and medicinal. Orval-ish... I like this one. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear golden body with nice head. Aroma is light spice and yeast. Flavor is light spices, citrus and a touch of earthiness. Finishes dry. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid canary with 2-finger fluffy white head. Nose is rock sugary malt, apricot, honey, spicy yeast, funk, and white pepper. Tastes fruity, with apricot, orange, spicy yeast, floral, and white peppery notes. Rich, complex palate. Very nice example of this style. malrubius (2896) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 20, 2008
750 ml split in Duvel glass. Pale hazy orange with lasting fluffu white head and lotsa lace. Lemony grassy aroma with mild yeast. Hint of orange creme pop sweetness with spicy mildly bitter extremely dry finish. Possibly the driest beer I’ve had. Did I say dry? Medium-light body, a touch of thinness, perfect for today at 95 degrees. Excellent. MaltOMeal (1094) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2008
bottle shared thanks to zinister. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. nose is of spices with pepper and lemon yeast. Very Duvel-ish. Taste is not as impressive as the smell. Spices. Mouthfeel had a dry, sour finish. Meh.
