Bottle 33 cl from Willems in Grobbendonk (B). Hazy blond slightly amber, ivory foam gushing, thicky sparkling. Fruity nose, sweetness of malt, hints of hops, lemon, tea, orange and spices. Taste sweet and round. The soft orange, without the zest, is dotted with discreet touches of bitterness, mostly in final, a bit flat and watery.

Draught at TND: Lightly sweet aroma of pale malt, slight hops, and slight grass. Poured yellow/gold in color with a large, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Bery sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pale malt, light Belgian yeast, and hints of hops and grass. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Pale malt and slight hop finish is dry. 8.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Travlr (20350) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Tap at Max’s. Cloudy straw colored, small white head. Aroma of spider web. Yeasty, doughy taste, decent enough malt, but not very exciting. I agree with Tarheels86: Meh. Not sure what Meh means, but it fits.

I’m not usually disposed towards dry golden beers of the Belgian variety, but Valeir Divers knocked my socks off... When I was asked to describe the taste, the first term that came was "aristocratic." It is dry without being weak or unduly bitter, having almost a savoriness to the flavor instead. This is what Duvel would like to be when it grows up.

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2009
33cl bottle pours bright but hazy gold with some odd floaties remaining in suspension throughout. Nose like toasted white bread, sweet marmalade, and creamed ripe banana. Sweetish taste, mild bitterness. Lively carbonation despite fairly full body. Backtaste of banana, pineapple juice, rum, but alcohol subdued enough. A bit sweet and strong to be useful, but still damned interesting.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2009
LIght straw color with a voluminous off-white head. Fluffy head lasts for the entire quaff. Pale malt, grassy hops and a hint of light fruit in the aromas. Some really nice scents buried deep, but I really had to search for it. Pale malt, honey, and hints of alcohol in the flavors. Touches of floral hops in the middle. Light pepper and alcohol in the finish. Some rough parts surrounded by some really nice edges.
