Hazy golden color with a huge head. Retains well as a thick layer of foam and coats the glass in lacing.

Fresh fruity, malty, citric and sweet aroma. Very nice.

Nice fruit flavors: white grapes and prunes. Light biscuity malt flavor. Subtle herbal hop flavor. Excellent balance.

Medium bodied with a sharp carbonation. Smooth feel.

Good drinkability. Very good beer overall.

A - Poured a pale golden colour with a frothy white head that laces nicely and reduces slightly.

S - orange, lemon aromas dominate with some spice and sweet candy aromas.

T - Bready yeasty malts combined well with fruit and citrus notes with the hint of pepper and spice throughout.

M - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation that gives a refreshing crisp finish.

O - With out a doubt one of my favourite Belgium ales with all its qualities shining through. A wondeful well balanced complex beer that is a must to try.

Cloudy dark golden orange appearance with thick head that slowly settles down leaving decent lacing. Smell consists of orange, pepper, various spices, herbs, bread and a hint of malt; quite the combination.

Taste has many of the same features as the smell, orange, lemon, pepper, various herbs and spices. Also has a hint of bread and malt, the whole taste is balanced and not to heavy making it highly drinkable. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finish is a bitter citrus and lemon taste.

Awesome beer, don’t know why I haven’t tried this before. The taste isn’t overpowering, but still quite flavorful and refreshing. Look forward to drinking a few of these when it gets hot out.
