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.

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.

Livet är svårt som det är utan att bli lurad av en belgisk öl som med kurvig Chimaykropp får det att rycka i öltarmen och minnen av blöta kvällar att beslöja vardagen. När Valeir Blond lyfter på skumkronan och blottar ett öl som mer smakar flint än guldlockar står man där med lång näsa - fylld av aromer som mest förstärker saknaden efter Chimay. Uttrycket "man vet vad man har men inte vad man får" kunde ha myntats av mig i denna djupa besvikelse, om inte någon annan viktigpetter hunnit före.

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006

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.

Parket (578) - 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.

BarossaLuke (540) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2013
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.

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