Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candy ester is overly sweet with a nice Belgian malt backbone. Taste also contained some nice Belgian ale malt backbone thought overly sweet candy-like ester is a bit much. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no sign of alcohol. Too sweet and candy-like for my taste.

Rating from early 2011.

33 cl. bottle @ a bar. Very unusual beer, orange colored with fluffy white head, sweet with honey, caramel, yeast, spices & flowers, dandelions, chrysanthemums,… mixed with hops, yep, this one actually does taste like sweet flowers, especially in the aftertaste. Nice, I like it.

Bought at Drankenhandel Geers.

Definitely special amber beer with easily recognizable floral aroma and taste, quite sweet.
You couldn't mistake this for anything else than a flower beer, both in aromas and in taste. My companions tonight were even more enthusiastic than me, so a good recommendation for fans of sweeter, flowery beers.
Within that niche I'd say there are a few more refined beers out there though this is still a good shot.
