Thrond (5) - FRANCE - OCT 23, 2013 does not count
Très bonne bière blonde à 10°, consistante et au goût prononcé, puissant, particulier et agréable légèrement citronné, peu amère. Mousse fine, tenue raisonnable. Couleur jaune pâle, claire. Bière pour apéritif, vite rassasiante. Bouteille assez jolie, couleur ambre.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2013
From notes: Pours clear straw color with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of honey and earthy yeast with notes of grass and spice. Body is medium, with a mild thickness and a lightly astringent finish. Flavor has a grassy note mixed with earthy yeast, and a light spice note. Perhaps a touch of citrus also.

gyllenbock (4716) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in September 2012. 109 SEK for the bottle. Hazy golden/yellow with a firm white head. Sweet with quite a lot of spices, mostly cardemom and coriander. Also malt, toffee, some lime and dried fruit. Not bad but a glas was enough.

banii (237) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
Gylden og skyete i glasset med et friskt skum. Aroma av sitron og alkohol. Smaken er vanvittig syrlig, nesten som å sette tennene i en sitron. Et lite innslag av lime og alkoholvarme. En øl som får deg til å sperre øynene opp, men kanskje ikke av de rette årsaker. Overraskende sprøtt øl fra Chimay - kanskje noen år i kjelleren får den på en mer avbalansert kurs?

freretoc (716) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 28, 2013
Une mousse magnifique blanche qui tient longtemps avec une couleur jaune troublée des plus magnifique ! En bouche on retrouve un goût citronnée et une belle touche de cardamome pas du tout écoeurante, une bien belle bière !

BeerandBlues2 (9726) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, earthy spices, spicy hops, Belgian yeast esters and Candi sugar notes. Flavor is malt forward with Belgian spices, light hops and bitterness fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation.

Lilja (1646) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2013
Flaska drucken med ölföreningen. Smak och doft av lime, örter, lavendel, bergamott, tigerbalsam och hostmedicin. Tvålig, rund, len, blommig med en aning pepprig eftersmak med toner av anis och karamell. Lagom söt och annorlunda smaker.
