It pours amber with a very slight haze and a huge head. The aroma is suggestive of a rather sweet beer and it's dominated by yeast esters. The flavor however is surprisingly dry, with very little in the way of sweetness and in fact there is a slight tartness paired some spiciness that resembles coriander flavors. Full bodied and with mild carbonation.

Looks like a classic Belgian Ale when poured-- golden color, white head. Smell is definitely Belgian Yeast, bread, and malt. Taste is similar but with hops, apples, and coriander at the end of the mouthful. Feel is light for such a heavy beer, and is very fizzy. No alcohol detected, and was refreshing and had a good overall feel.

This was the first Belgian Ale I have ever tried, and got me into exploring other brands/styles, so it is about time I do a review on it. Overall a good golden ale to try. Also one of the prettiest bottles I've ever seen-- so good job to Huyghe and their marketing team-- I often get remarks about this beer when I have one open at a party, like 'what is that?' or 'That's an awesome looking bottle!', especially the painted stone-colored bottle.

Very drinkable, slightly sour in a good way. Goes down easy.

I always thought this beer was one of the great Belgian beers but it's not. It's foamy, champagne appearance resembles Duvel but nowhere close to the flavor. This one has flavors of fermented apples, malt, and bread. Thought it would be better, glad to have tried, but won't be getting it again.
