COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2003
cloudy orange colour, fine dense head and a beautiful lace, deep fruity aroma (apple and litchies), yeasty, lot of carbonation, acidic with a robust finishing bitterness, medium-bodied, the finish is long, fruity and dry - refreshing and quite marvellous !
Earlier Rating: 11/19/2001 Total Score: 3.8
hazy golden-orange colour with a big white creamy head and a beautiful lacing; strong honeyish and bready aroma with light spicy notes (anise); very creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation; sweet with a robust malt body, a touch of finishing sourness brings some balance; long gready and spicy aftertaste - quite on the sweet side but very good

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 18/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Little cloudy yellow to bright orange beer, thick creamy white adhesive head. Aroma: clearly distinctive hop aroma, yeast note, little bit sweet and malty, but just a tiny bit. MF: nicely balanced carbon, creamy soft texture, full body. Taste: mild and gentle hop flavour, dense malts, citrus fruits and spices. Aftertaste: balanced dry hoppiness, fruits, citrus and pepper.

Clear yellowish-orange, very carbonic. Very fine white creamy head that stays on for a long time. Some flakey sediment floating around on the carbon bubbles. In the nose some citrus. Full and bitter taste, very bitter dry aftertaste, yet very pleasing.

jjsint (2827) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light yellow with a whirlpool of carbonation. The sign of a great beer (as opposed to one that is merely good) is one that you are happy to smell for a good 10 minutes, breathing in an exciting and unique aroma. Fresh and funky, hints of seawater and TCP. The scent of heaven. Taste is even better: a balanced salty sweetness with a bittersweet finish. Palette is like the kiss of ones own true love.

Coloração dourada belíssima e translúcida. Creme branco bem formado, de longa duração. Aroma predominantemente cítrico, com toque floral, muito agradável. Paladar cítrico, com toque de pão e pêras, acidez e picância discretas. Excelente carbonatação, álcool bem inserido. Retrogosto discreto, levante lupulado. Excelente Blond, equlibrada, grande surpresa.

ASPETTO: biondo limpido, schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA e GUSTO: molto mieloso, speziato, camomilla, floreale. Birra molto buona, che si fa ricordare, soprattutto per il suo mieloso.
