It is hard to fault this ale. OK, it's too good. It has a lovely light fragrance (not an aroma, a fragrance). The head is a little weak, but the color is sublime.

The taste is something I don't think I could ever get enough of. It is a good thing this is pretty expensive or I would drink it all day instead of going to work. I hope the perfect aftertaste lasts until tomorrow.

Poured into a duvel glass, it is a soft, lightly cloudy golden amber color with a small foamy head. Beautiful aroma! Sweet and flowery with a soft vanilla spiciness and a subtle fruitiness. The latter shows up immediately in the flavor: a well-rounded fruitiness supported by a lot of coriander spice. A little medicinal phenol character and light bitterness add some nice complexity. Body is a little thin, but soft and creamy.

Too bad this is priced so high ($12 for a 4-pack) or I'd be drinking this on a regular basis. This would make a very nice aperitif.

Some years ago I drank this beer, and it didn't impresse me much.

Last year I took it again and found out what I missed. Ofcourse this beer is sweet, but the herbs, honey and flowers and nice soft hops make it a beer to stay.

L: just great; golden looks;
S: mjummy, could this last forever, herbs, flowers, soft hops, creamy notes;
T: the tast is round, someone could say it lacks bitterishness, okay because of that it stays a 4,5;
M: very, very drinkable, nice carbo;
O: really my style, blond not too heavy, an underestimated star....can I have another one?

A fine example of the unique Belgian brewing arts and a beer that does not fit any of the standard classifications: part wit, part honey ale.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with effervescent carbonation and a beautiful frothy white head that lingers and laces exceptionally well.

The aroma is fruity sweet with orange and floral notes from the coriander and orange peel with additional scents from the honey.

The taste is a luscious blend of sweet malt and honey, with generous flavor added from the coriander and orange peels. Overall this beer has a warm and full mouth feel.

Look for this beer and try it if you can.
