harrisoni (19332) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais. Clear amber huge head meant I could only pour half the bottle into a Duvel glass. A tad over carbonated perhaps. Syrupy malty aroma. Yep its ok quite strong in alcohol. Overly carbonated. Some ok tangerine flavour. Yes its quite pleasant in the end rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2005

Hazy orange-brown color with lots of CO2. Good foamy off-white head, lace. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity with grapefruit and raisins. Carbonated, quite dry mouthfeel. Quite thin bodied with hints of toffee, malts and alcohol. Dry oaky finish.
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Sugary, caramel-ish aroma with a generic fruityness and some spiced notes. Cinnamo and cloves it seems. The flavor has a touch of something cellar like, with caramel, spice notes, white sugar and a fruityness. Medium body, a bit effervescent. Lasting sugary and caramel finish with a touch of spices. A quite decent beer, but rather boring, especially as a Christmas beer. 121219

6 classic sweet mild blond aroma.
4 Rich orange, sticky doughy head
7 Yes, I know this is Haacht, but this is a quality blond. Rich malty body, gently bitter hops, good balance.
4 Full palate, smooth and a little sweet. Pleasant carbonation. Finnish gently hoppy, certainly quite muted, but they are real green noble hops.
14 Solid Belgian Abbey beer. Covers the alcohol very well.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with a great frothy white head. Smells of citrus and vanilla. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavors are fairly mild. Citrus, light malt, maybe some clove. It’s a good beer, just hard to pin down. Ends on the bitter side.
