Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Pours golden with a slight haze and a dense white head. Sweet fruity nose with some spicy and perfumy notes - coriander? Solid body, sweet malt and fruit with spices and quite some phenols. Alcohol in the finish. 110910 madmitch76 (26437) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2010
4th June 2010 - Bottle at Brasserie 4:20. Cloudy gold - amber beer. Good white head. Light dry palate. Sweetish malt. Starts crisp but then turns a little soft. Competent. Unremarkable. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2008
On tap at Bir & Fud, Roma. Hazy golden with a small head. Complex fruity aroma with hints of melon and spices. Rounded melon flavours with just a bit of spices (including cinnamon?) A great Italian Belgian ale. JorisPPattyn (10121) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2008
Hazy beer, small rim left. Citric nose, lemonbalm, chalk. Nutty taste, malts, ending dull-bready. Very carbonated MF, sharpish. Alchohol, very lightly. Bit indifferent, not one one would get crazy about.

My Bottom Line:RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Honeyed malts tend to supercede the herbal, citrusy hops in this clean and well-made strong ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy blond.
-The body is round, and these residual sugars seem to provide the bulk of the flavors.
-A subtle spiciness stems from the hops in the finish.
-Carbonation is soft, which usually helps drinkability, but alcohol warmth warns you that this is no session beer.
-The honeyed sweetness verges on being caramelized.
On tap at Bir&Fud, Roma.
On tap at Bir & Fud on 7/6. Pours gold with a minimal head. Aroma of caramel, candied sugar, and funk. Similar taste. A very nice, solid beer. Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2008
Draft at Bir & Fud Rom,/Italy: Hazy yelow colour, with a flat head. Aroma of flowers,malty,fruity and a caramelly finish. Flavor had a smouth mouth feeling,with lots of caramel, reminds me of a norwegian bock beer,and thats a compliment.(In the head its stands Belgian Ale?) A Short to medium caramely finish. Nice!
