A rather sweet ale, smooth with a subtle spicy aroma. Easy-drinking, pleasant, but not outstanding. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2007
Gold, with a large, white head. Aroma is hops, spices, and some citrus fruit. Flavor is spices, yeast, fruit, with some alcohol. Decent. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2007
almost clear golden in color, with heavy carbonation and a big long lasting off white head. Aroma is honey, sweet malts, and light spices. Taste is honey, sweet malts, metallic notes, and light spice. the metallic really ruined this one for me. holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
Bottle. Light yellow color with a white head. Very light aroma of hops and citrus fruit coming through. Citrus malt flavors that are balanced well with sweetness, alcohol, and pepper spice. A decent brew. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 This pours a clear, very pale yellow body with lively carbonation and a dense, fizzy white head. It smells of sweet pale malts, hot spices, yeast, and a lemon twist. Very lively and peppery on the tongue. It’s a crisp Champagne-like drink with the malty sweetness retreating beneath the lemon and pepper flavors. A touch of funkiness makes it all that more interesting. Nice crisp & dry finish.

, Brussel. Hazy, dark blond with a creamy offwhite head. Fruity aroma. Good bitter flavours provided by fruity hops. Above average.
I really think that this style is getting over done, or at the very least, the style should have some subcategories. This is not the same as the Ommegang I just had- two different beers entirely. Was pleasent enough, but not stellar. I will try again though. Stefano (2047) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 13, 2007
Dark orange color, very cloudy appearance. Round sweet aroma. Flavour of overbaked bread, alcohol and hops, with some rather peculiar sweetness. Moderate bitter finish.
