This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Nice all-around blonde but fresh on draft it can taste like slightly alcoholic coriander soup. Better when bottle-fermented, IMO. Sweet, coriander nose with orange notes. Flavor is moderately sweet with mild bitterness, of which more would be nice. Spices linger in the aftertaste. I dont think this beer was always so soupy.

2008-03-06. Golden yellow body with a modest white head. (3+) Mild dry aroma, light pale malt, light alcohol in both aroma (5+) and flavour. Average to thin palate. Not unpleasant but does not inspire me to say much about it either

Plovmand (7978) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. BBF June 06. Amazingly this beer has evolved in the bottle during the years of saving. Not sure if its to the better but its a bit different than the flesh sample of this good beer. Pours hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma is spicy and malty with notes of pepper and coriander. Taste is still yeasty but more spicy than usual.

I love this stuff. One of my regulars. The one Im drinking is not as nice as usual, I best have another. Smooth lasting head, smells a little musty but it tatstes so sweet. I love it, second bottle on the go, nailed the other one in minutes.

Berge (5) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2007 does not count
Bottle brought home from Belgium. Pours golden with slightly hazy look. Smell is yeasty and a touch of citrus. A sweet front and then ends with a slightly smokey? taste. Fairly light mouth feel with good carbonation. A decent beer but a little sweet for my tastes.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2007
330 ml. bottle brought to me straight from Belgium by my daughter. Carefully poured into a tulip, body is gold with a faint haze and medium white head that leaves a thin, sliding lace. Subtle aromas of yeast, light fruit, honey, lemon, and flowers. Medium body and lively carbonation, fairly clean palate. Lightly sweet up front, with an assertive bitterness that comes on quickly, and a mild acidity in the background. Moderately long dry finish. Nicely refreshing with some balanced complexity.
