Hazy golden color, generous frothy off-white head. Mouth-watering aroma of fresh fruits (apples, pears), yeast, sweet malts, and a hint of caramel. Huge flavors: fresh fruits (green apples, pears, green grapes), a yeasty breadiness, over a sweet malty base, balanced by a significant hoppiness. Over all a HUGE beer with very intense and well-balanced flavors. The evidence of the alcohol content presents itself only after the beer has been consumed. Rich and satisfying palate, smooth and silky with an instantaneously dry finish. A monstrous beer and an excellent example of the style. jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle 33 cl. Yeasty alcoholic aroma (sweet notes), long lasting white head. Dispite the alcohol level it’s still very sweet. Lots of carbonation. theodor (12) - Son en Breugel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2006
A yellow/orange beer with a small hase. The aroma is a bit yeasty bud nice. The alcohol comes out quite strong. It has a strong and rich taste. The head is very white. Strong carbonation. weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2006
From a 750 ml, corked & caged bottle(that cork was a real bitch to get out!)...
Appears a transparent gold with faint haziness and tons of carbonation bubbles racing to the top of the dense, 3 finger, white head. Lots of webbing is left around the glass.
Smell is of mildly doughy, caramel, candi sugar, apricots, citrus, herbal, & earthy notes, with perhaps of touch of banana deep in the background.
Taste is sweet of melted caramel, apricot reduction, sugar, pepper, and a decent malty quality that has flashes of the citrusy hops.
Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied yet slightly chewy, sugary, cookie and spiced liquid treat. gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2006
From 750. Pours a murky golden orange with off white head. Nose is light fruits, apricot, yeasty and a little candy like. Flavor follows with a little alcohol in the back. Some off flavors like cardboard hold this one back a bit.

75cl bottle. This blonde ale poured with a lacy white head, most of which dissipated rather quickly. There is a floral malty aroma. The flavor is very yeasty and carbonated with a flat bitter finish. It is a complex beer with variable and interesting tastes, such as caramel, and citrus. GRM (4014) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006

Bottle, 33 cl. Amber-orange color.
White head. Sweet, with fruit notes, little bitter. Tatse is very alcohol. To much.
Personally i like the blond 6° more. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 1, 2006
Very cloudy, yellowish orange body. Head is of white bubbles and lasts for about 30 seconds. Smells of yeast and coriander, clove spice and acid hops. Taste is strong and full, with thick malt, citrus tang, apple cinnamon, lemon and grapes. Really fine flavors. Big alcohol. Even though there wasn’t much of a head, body still looks luscious, with bubbles continually rising and putting on a good show. marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Clear floral citrus aroma. Orange hazy appearance. Light sweetness up front with a very bitter finish. Medium body with a thick mouthfeel. Creamy and lively. Bitter long lasting finish. Alcohol is very present in the taste. Very delicious.
