Lightly scented aroma followed by a subtly bitter taste. It leaves a subtle raisin fruitiness on the palate ending with a pleasant bitter tonic when swallowing.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
[33cl bottle] Hazy, golden colour with a big foamy white head. Yeasty and sweet malty with distinctive citrus- and berry-fruity notes. Moderately sweet and bitter flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Cara-malty, slightly bready and fruity taste with a quite lasting not to sweet finish with rounded spicy aspects. Enjoyable brew [09.I.09].

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden colour with a good size head and normal carbonation. Smell is very fresh and fruity, lots of fruits there like apples and oranges. Taste is about the same with also a vague presence of the yeast, not too much, just right.

Borresteijn (6042) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2008
Bottle @ Take One. Hazy golden colour, white head. Very fruity aroma, malty and flowery. Flavour adds some hoppy notes to that, with a slightly bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Becomes a bit boring in the end.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 In short: A basic floral Belgian blonde ale. Good but nothing special.
How: Bottle 330ml, drank when about 6 months of age
The look: Clear blonde body topped by an initially large white head with medium retention
In long: Averagely fruity for a Belgian Ale with flavours of pineapples, apples (red and green), bananas, some grapefruits. Hops are very much on the floral side of things, almost perfumy. Sensation of floral petal juice along with some dry grass. Light acidity. Very lively carbonation, maybe a bit too much so. White pepper and salty notes, the beer has a strong mineral presence. An overall crisp and fresh sensation upped the score a few points. Very drinkable in its simplicity, almost underrated. The truth is that this beer isn’t far from one of the best Belgian Blonde ale. Silly is only 70 miles away from Westvleteren.
