pivo (2545) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2004
Lovely dark gold color. Yeasty undertones amidst a medium pale malt body. Some mustard seed and a clear hop end that I appreciated - leaves a sharp biting bitter like orange peel, dryish too. Quite good

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. An uncomplicated but pleasant spicy belgian blonde. peppery coriander and sweet fruity yeasts on the nose. Not quite as sweet as the smell with a little mild hops. Not bad.

Belgianbeerweekend, Brussels 2004: Golden, little head. Weak mustard seed nose. Light malt tast with some hoppiness. Dusty. Weird aftertaste though.

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Straw colored pour, a little dark straw. Big, frothy, white head that lasts for a bit. As it slowly sinks it leaves behind a bunch of lacing. Huge peppery hop aroma with some nice yeast smells. Sweet malt aroma at that. Bitter bite on the tongue up front. Mostly from the carbon dioxide, and not the hops unfortunately. There is a hop presence in the mouth though. Mix that with some sweet malt and a nice earthy yeast and it isn’t half bad. Dry, bitterness on the back. Decent.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2004
Clear blonde coloured, thin lacing. Faint aroma, some hops i think. Flavour is sweet with some malts. Unimpressive brew.

SarkyNorthener (1735) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle from national brewery centre, Burton. Golden Orange beer with a big head and good lacing. Aroma of spices and yeast. Taste is coriander, spices, yeast, hops and caramel. Moderate carbonation. A very good Belgian ale.

diabel (1606) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Rerate 6/12/03: A white head and a blond-amber colour, the flavour is spicy and bitter-dry. <P> Beautiful golden color. Rather flat taste, still quite bitter. And all in the end a quite good palate.

mzaar (1549) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2011
My friend, who bought the bottle, gave it to me "ouch, this was strong". Thank you, Stefan, for that, because this is just a great beer. Lots of tastes and a rather typical Belgian ale.
