Dark golden, lasting head. Grassy, sweet aroma. Roasted taste, full bodied, rather sharp bitterness.

Was somewhat dissapointed after being amazed by the extra. But still enjoyed it

flavio_b (275) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 5, 2011
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas in Bruxelles. Very easy to drink beer, light and fruity. Not too much persistent froth, and a little bit floral. Pale and cloudy and frothy. Very pleasant to drink also if associated with cheeses.

nramsburg (257) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12 oz bottle conditioned. Light fruit aroma. Very bready flavor with a lacing of honey as well. Nice clean fishing. Good and well-balanced beer, but doesn’t stand out for me.

I det belgiska grumlet gömmer sig en intressant ale med en karraktär som man inte stöter på så ofta. Känns dock lite långsur och butter, vilket möjligtvis kan bero på att den var förpassad till Systembolagets tillfälliga sortiment.

bdunhill (236) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2014
This blond is not characteristic of most blondes, it comes in with midl aroma and an non distinct appearance. But the first taste has a smoky flavour, but doesn’t linger (as that wouldn’t be nice). Delicious, distinctive and enjoyable!

chribban (152) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Yellow beer with a lot of sediment. A four finger high foam with a white color. Smell of yeast, rubber, grapefruit, apples and citrus. Taste: Yeast, grapefruit peel, herbs, dirt, dried fruit and bread. Ok but not my cup of tea!

Bottle - WoW! This beer should definitely rate higher! Really nice orange/golden in colour with a big white had which leaves decent lacing. Taste begins with malt sweetness, followed with a thin yeasty sourness and some biscuit. Ends with good amount of hop, which is unusual for a Belgian ale but absolutely good that this one has it. Great beer!

PalCabral (111) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy amber with a huge frothy head, that lasts through the session. The arome is sweet from the yeast, oranges. It’s a lovely smell. The taste is malty and peppery from the hops, tasty but a tad too hoppy for me. It’s a great beer, classic Contreras stuff.

rulas3 (107) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 16, 2012
Apariencia: color naranja claro, turbio, poco carbónico, bastante poso, corona escasa y blanca. Aroma: suave pero complejo, predomina el cítrico y la vainilla, notas galleta, frutas blancas, mazapán, plátano. Sabor: complejo pero suave, cuerpo medio, dulce, muy afrutado, pero sin ser empalagoso, caramelo, vainilla, naranja dulce y especias. Alcohol muy bien integrado. espectacular cerveza, de lo mejor que he probado últimamente, me ha encantado, muy bien hecha, muy equilibrada, compleja, pero suave. Además se mantiene dentro del estilo belga pero con un punto un poco más original, sin salirse del molde y manteniendo su "belguidad"
