2009 edition. WA Belgianfest. Pours orange gold. Aromas of pepper and sugar. Taste changes--bubblegum and yeast to coriander and a fruity finish. I like the complexity. Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Draft at Belgianfest. Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity with apple and mango, plus a bit of coriander. Flavor is also complexly fruity, and does indeed have tropical tones to it as the description suggests. Rather sweet and a little floral. Spicy yeast comes through the finish. larsniclas (7144) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2009
Light amber. Medium, white head.
Spicy and vinous flavour. Flowery citrus.
Light bitterness. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle shared by nuplastikk on 1/10/09: Pours a transparent orange with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt and big floral lavender spice notes. Body starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with pleasant black peppery and floral spice. A pretty interesting and enjoyable brew.
Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Cloudy golden amber color, medium head. Nose of apples, vanilla, and ripe fruits. Sweet malt taste, saaz hops and a nice coriander finish. Pleasant medium body and mouthfeel. A very nice and well rounded beverage from the NW. marctacoma (35) - Fircrest, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Pours deep orange, moderate head. Malt sweetness fading to a really well-done hop/sweet/coriander finish. Balanced, refreshing stuff. I liked it a lot.
(22oz bottle) hayduke (5601) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 15, 2009
This poured a cloudy gold with a medium grey head and light lacing. Nose is of ripe fruit and coriander. Smooth and clean mouthfeel. Flavor of caramel malts with all kind of spices and various floral and fruit nuances. Finish is sweet. Very much a belgian style. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Poured a slightly hazed orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Yeasty phenolic aroma with black pepper and some floral notes. Some sweet malt underneath. The malty flavor was lightly toasted and bready.Mild spice. Light body and thin flavor on the finish. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. Body-hazy copper brown with a medium ring of bubbles and a film of bubbles. Nose-unsweet apple juice, light hops, lemon. Taste-sharp, medium alcohol, light watered down citric juice, unrefined brown sugar, slightly sweet, clean Belgian yeast, not a lot of off flavors, alcohol really comes out on the back end, light slat, pineapple. Very well done, very well made. An excellent beer that really hits home with me.
