33cl bottle bought this spring, with a Feb. 2014 best-by date, poured into a tulip. Shiny copper, cloudy but translucent, lined with strands of bubbles, with rocky, ivory-colored head, bubbles loudly popping -- is there a sound rating on these? -- as it reduced but didn't altogether dissipate, leaving a real looker of a cream-fringed glass of liquid metal. Gentle, subtle hop flowers in the nose, buttered toast with strawberry and apricot jam, fresh and nutritious-smelling. Plus maybe a hit of clove and pine. Lively blended attack of herby, spicy as opposed to merely bitter hops (which is not to say it's under-bittered) and jammy malt, I'd again suggest apricots, oranges both bitter and sweet, banana, tea, and I swear this isn't breakfast. All in balance and restrained. The mouthfeel is particularly interesting, creamy and lively with carbonation, substantial and more-ish. This is a complex little package, restrained, just an excellent performer for the style. (973 characters)

Had this in a beer bar in a small town in Belgium.

Pours a cloudy honey color with a big foamy white head. Great retention. Big sticky lace.

Smells like a typical Belgian ale and rather clean. Citrus aroma as well.

Taste is like the smell. Nice malt sweetness, spice and a bit of lemon.

Medium bodied in the mouth.

Delightful and very easy drinking. Liked this one. (370 characters)

A huge head with lively carbonation and an orange color.

Smell is a bit biscuity and has some flowery, citrus smells.

Taste is malty like pilsner malt is. The yeast adds a vanilla and lemony taste, that combine very well together. A light clean bitterness with a minor sharp edge and some light higher alcohols. (314 characters)

BB 12-10-07. Litle white head and a clear copper/amber beer. Nose is strongly phenolic and spiced probably with a whole bunch of spices. Taste is strong and good having a moderate sweetness, lots of alcohol, good malts, liquorice, sweet gale and moderatly bittered. Good carbonisation wth it and balanced taste create good mouthfeel. Overall a good beer and a pleasure to drink but so are many belgiums. (403 characters)
