COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

33cl bottle. It actually was the last bottle the bar had and could not get more due to the brewery going bankrupt. Pours golden with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty lightly fruity. Taste was sweet, citrusy and yeasty. Found the beer to be extremelly sweet and complex.

(bottle) Light yellow colour with big foamy white head. Aromas of hops and yeast with a little bit of straw and grass. Mild malty taste with a acidic dry hoppy finish & alcoholic in the positive way.

Fitting for number 666. Very pale straw coloured beer with a huge lasting head. Big yeasty aroma, apricot/peachy fruit, green apple, black pepper spiciness, and more hoppy aromas than I was expecting, with a hop profile reminiscent of Orval, grassy and herbal. Flavour is quite light and refreshing, yeast, spice, some fruitiness. Ethanol is noticible. Very good, if a little thin-bodied.

JorisPPattyn (10122) - BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2003
Pale yellow, hazy. Thick, fast collapsing very white head. Nose of grain, seemingly some wheat too. Very grassy aroma, or unripe fruit. Grainy taste. Sugar-candi dryness, slightly spicey impression. Dry mouthfeel. Alcohol is there, but well masked. Long dry aftertaste. Somehow, and from the very beginning, I've always thought of this beer as of a super-strong Dentergems wit, rather than as a Duvel-competitor. It has characteristics of both, anyway. Like it.

bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Golden beer with a big white head. Slight hoppy, yeasty, spicy aroma. Spicy, yeasty, lemony flavor. High carbonation. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Lighter, delicate flavor that fades to a bit of spice. refreshing. Hides alcohol well.

3.4
Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2007
Bottle. Fluffy white lasting head. Hazy yellow body with a lot of carbonation. Sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet fruity yet spicy flavor. Alcohol just noticeable, almost hidden by the high carbonation.
