Bottled, tnx to Viktor!. Color is pale golden yellow, with thick foamy head. Aroma has a bit of yeast, fruits, and some malts in aroma. Flavour is more yeasty, spicy, slightly fruity. Alcohol gets very dominant at the end. Nice dry aftertaste.

drpimento (2280) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2010
A little different. Nice and light. Poured a nice foamy, frothy white head that lasts and good lace. Color is a very clear lighter yellow. Aroma is malt, floral, yeast, hops, and body powder. Flavor quite mild and good. Bitter up front, sweet in the back. Grains, a little hops, a little citrus, a little yeast; all in moderation and very nicely balanced. Body is lighter but good and great carbonation. Super easy drinking beer. No hint of alcohol. Session beer for sure. Man, you could easily knock these back and find yourself on the floor.

Beer4000 (4570) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2010
330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a fine white head. Aroma is mild spicy with yeast and a hint of fresh fruit. Flavor is light malty, spicy, yeast and a fine balance between sweet and bitter. Very refreshing and a good sample of how an light Belgium ale still can be flavorful with depth.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
From bottle at ’t Brugs Beertje. Light lactic yeasty fresh aroma with pilsner malt and a bit of sour nose. Light sugar and some hops but overall a standard blonde-tripel aroma. Perhaps a bit of oxidation. Golden amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with nice malt, some candi sugar, and mild honey. Yeasty carbonic notes with lactose sweet after. Orange peel? Mild alcohol flavor but not cloyingly sweet, dry chalky after.

Borresteijn (4859) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2009
33cl Bottle at Kafé België. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, sharp grainy alcohol, light fruity. Flavour is light sweet, light fruity, yeast, alcohol, bitterness underneath throughout, bitter malty finish. Not very refined, a bit sharp mouthfeel. Light to medium bodied.
