thanatosti (814) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy orange with a thick white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Malty taste with a touch of sweetness. Aftertaste is a bit harsh. Decent but unimpressive Belgian ale.

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Pours like an ale. A bit sour, malty, with hoppy citrus fruitiness coming through. Lively mouthfeel. Decent.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Trollekelder in Gent. BBF 27/06/2015. Hazy orange with a white head. Nose is sweet oranges, thick BE yeast, candy sugar, lightly hoppy. Taste is lots of candy sugar, caramel, very sweet BE yeast, lots of caramel malts, sweet spices & sweet orange peel, faint hops. Touch higher carb. Not a bad brew within style.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange with big head. NOSE : sweet malt aromas of caramel and sugar bread. Yeasty, fruity esters revealing aromas of apricot, banana and citrus peel. SIP : creamy body with medium carbonation. Sweet beginning with a background of yeast and fruits. It develops floral hop character that ends with fair amount of bitter hops. The beer is lightly bitter but just enough to end up with a pepper and metallic like aftertaste. OVERALL : good balance with decent body and carbonation. Easy to drink and 7% of alcohol is well hidden. Can’t go wrong with this one.

Standard Belgian blond beer. I think this is mostly brewed so that the Cluyesenaer bar has its own beer.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2013
Dorée-orangée, pétillance quasi-absente de visu, assez pétillante au palais, col blanc fin et persistant. Assez bien maltée caramel, un peu métallique en entrée, présence de miel, coriandre, fruits, réglisse, petite amertume sur une fin moyenne. Plus qu’agréable malgré un ABV qui peut paraître traître.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet (online).
Pours clear orange with a large, creamy, white head. Aroma has malts, sweet and doughy, light caramel, mild oxidation. Medium carbonation, dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has some oxidation (and it’s not too old), doughy, sweet Belgian sugar, mild vinious, quite some herbal dry notes. A bit weird.
