UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 33cl bottle at BXL East. Pours slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a small head. Lovely beer, aroma and taste of yeast and fruit and hops. Incredibly well balanced. Highly drinkable.

Ljust äppelmust färgad med fällning, ljust skum. Doft: Fuktig källare, jäst, gröna äpplen, halm. Smak: Grönsaks spad, äpple, trä, jord, något här oxå som gör att jag tänker på billig lager.

Parket (568) - Bruges, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2009
bottle@Brugsch beertje. Nice beer, looks a bit like a pilsener. Golden colour and nice and stable white head. Very nice spicy and fruity smell. The beer is easy drinking with nice fruity and spicy notes. Abricots, grainy, yeasty and soft grassy.

Golden in colour, with a fluffy thick head. Aroma of pears and wafts of alcohol come through too. The alcohol does stand out a little in this beer but it also has some great Belgian yeast character.

Bière comme on le sait de 6,5 % abv, puisque le brasseur en a aligné 4 sur le même niveau !! Couleur dorée un peu ambrée. Clarté légèrement troublée par un peu de levure. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, avec du blanc d’oeuf en haut. Arômes un peu serrés et courts de pain blanc et butterscotch. 1ère bouche sur un malt un peu grillé, et un houblon d’une amertume un peu plate. Arrière-bouche pinçante. 2ème nez de câpres. 2ème bouche avec un bouquet vraiment faible. 3ème avec de meilleures impressions, davantage sur le malt avec un houblon en arrière-fond. La longueur offre de la marmelade, pomme de terre et du miel de châtaigne. La levure est douce, fine, mais faible. L’alcool est correct pour son niveau, mais ne remonte pas les saveurs. La finale est très linéaire, sans envergure. Conclusion : une bière tout ce qu’il y a de plus banal, avec même des saveurs un peu désagréables. A revoir totalement par le brasseur.

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

flavio_b (277) - 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.
