Robe blonde, nez houblonné, fruité et épicé. Bouche tout en fruit et en fraîcheur avec une finale fraîche et équilibrée. Un bière de fruit et de plaisir, très typée.

Not As tasteful As the Chimay blue, but a nice beer after all. Golden pour, a lot of freshness with lemon tones.

darkseduction (657) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Flasche 33cl @ Aiguebelle Trappist Monastery Shop. Hell, leicht trüb, blumig-trockene Hopfennoten stammen wohl vom Hopfenstopfen. Sehr aromatischer und wertiger Hopfen (Perle?). Überaus erfrischend und wohltuend.

Svesse (6917) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2015
(Bottle) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of lemon peel, honey, white bread, toffee, grass and a touch of coriander. Fruity, malty taste with bread, hay, lemon peel, honey, apricots, some coriander and a gentle spicy bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, with some initial sweetness that dries out towards the end. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

SkillsFactory (178) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2015
Dorata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca che si attacca ai bordi del bicchiere, di media persistenza. Aroma di coriandolo, pepe, leggero erbaceo. Al palato si ripresentano il coriandolo ed il pepe, frumento e nota amaricante erbacea sul finale. Molto beverina, corpo leggero, molto carbonata.

Found this bottled in Belgium’s supermarket Carrefour. Aroma: Herbs, yeast, little clove, slight banana. Taste is light sweetness, medium bitterness, a bit herbal and some honey. And i even detect some flowers, like Lavender or violette. Enjoyable beer, light, refreshing, tastfull.
