Bottle. In Omer glass. Pours like a Pilsner. Strong foam head. Looks beautiful: nice bubbling due to the carbonation, all around the glass. Aroma is distinct: hints of copper, cherry, hint of pine, refreshing malts, some yeast. Nice. Taste starts with a kick: quite sour and bitter, a little boozy even (but nice!). The beer tastes well-rounded: there is a refreshing tingling sensation in the first couple of seconds, a subtle build-up of sourness accompanied with alcohol midway that slowly turns into a bitter after taste. I would say this is very much like a Duvel, but a little different.

cloudy pale yellow colour, huge, white head; aroma of floral hops, hints of honey, yeasty notes, some alcohol and maybe bread; taste of malty sweetness, floral notes, yeast and alcohol; not too much hoppy bitterness; correct Belgian strong ale

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Yellow colour, big white head in Omer’s beautiful glass. Aroma and taste are big on grainy and sweet malts and spicy yeasts. Good body, lively carbonation, nice bite.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottled, 33 cl. Opal yellow coloured one with a creamy and lasting white pillow on its top, which remains finger thick. Low-keyed fruity nose. Tasteing starts crisp followed by a mild citrus fruity aroma escorted by hints of apples, bread and bubblegum. Dry, spicy and somewhat warming aroma underpainted by lemon peel. An easy brew in a good sense.

Holmen2 (687) - NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Clear golden. Persistent white head. Fruity green bananas, dried tropical fruits and wine gum. Very fruity taste, well balanced with moderate bitterness. One of the better blonds.

11.2oz bottle 6/28/14 (Armanetti’s-Aurora)-50° in Trappist Glass-Pours yellow with a small white head and great big floaties. Aroma yeast, wheat, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit of malt on the back end. This light bodied brew is a bit weak.

graziano85 (294) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2014
Golden colour and a big dense head. Smell is yeasty, malt and a clear alcohol hint. Taste is yeasty too, bread crust, and again too much alcohol in the taste. Nothing special.

nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2014
Appears clear golden with a frothy white head. The aroma has hay, citrus, herbs and alcohol. It tastes nicely sweet with a light bitter finish. The body and carbonation are medium, texture can become a bit creamy. Despite the bitter, grassy finish a refreshing beer.

Bosbouw (1131) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Iets troebele gouden kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, kruiden en bloemen. Smaakt bitter, iets zoetig, kruiden en hop. Iets te zoet.
