turbothy (1102) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a moderate head. Floral hop aroma. Nice and fresh flavour; one of the most hoppy Belgians I’ve had in a while. Very pleasant if slightly over-carbonated beer.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 I’m surprised that this does not rate higher. This beer represents everything I like about Belgian beer and all of those qualities that American brewers cannot seem to replicate when brewing their own versions of classic Belgian styles. My sample was soft and subtle, with orchard fruit flavors, blunt hops and yeasty notes. Some of the flavors that I find in the great abbey beers like Rochefort. My second sample was no disappointment, but this time I definitely noticed some wild watermelon notes I didn’t get the first time. Great stuff this.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop, Copenhagen (32 DKK). Malty and really fruity with spicy and yeasty notes, alcohol, medium sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry with fruity and alcoholic notes.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours slightly orange with a thick white head and some suspended sediment. Aroma is a little Funky with lots of orange and banana. Tastes nice. Some vanilla and candy. Slightly spicy and citrus. Not bad at all. Pretty middle of the road Belgian blonde.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Plenty of creamy foam that glued itself nicely to the glass edge. The taste is a standard Belgian with good pressure in the malt as it should be and with a dry fine ending.

Draft at RisRas, Aarhus. Hazy yellow-orange body and small thick creamy lasting head. Aroma of fruits, flowers, elder flowers. Nice well balanced taste. Medium sweet and light/medium bitter.

EddyBeer1 (902) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2013
Dorée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée avec des notes fruitées et une petite amertume houblonnée. Une parmi tant d’autres...
