corkyrory66 (707) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2013
J’ai toujours attendu pour coter cette bière, parce qu’elle remonte dans mon estime à chaque fois que je la déguste. Aujourd’hui, je peux y aller, parce que j’ai retrouvé très nettement la « signature » Dubuisson dans cette bière. Je savais que je manquais quelque chose, mais en fait, très discrètement, la brasserie a laissé sa note typique. Reste à la percevoir …. C’est là tout le plaisir... Couleur jaune pêche tendre, avec un très léger voile brumeux. Bulles moyennes mais pas vives. Mousse blanche à flocons moyens, qui vient napper à 2 mm. Arômes un peu agrumes, avec du poivre fin, du pamplemousse et de la prune mûre, et des céréales (orge, blé). 1ère bouche avec des agrumes et des fruits secs. En fait, une ample volute de fruits, et de l’osier sec (je n’ai pas dit « gosier »...). 2ème bouche sur la girofle, la paille fraîche, des pelures d’orange et du poivre doux. 3ème bouche avec des plantes médicinales, des amandes crues, de l’ortie et un zeste de citron. Longueur constante (si l’on peut dire pour une bouteille de 25 cl ….!!!!). Levure à savourer, fine mais de classe moyenne. Alcool correct (comparé à celui de ses sœurs … 7 % abv, seulement ….!!!!). Finale avec des céréales qui reviennent, et une belle harmonie sur une tendre amertume. Conclusion : une bière qui doit être dégustée x fois pour être bien comprise. C’est sans doute une volonté des trolls, qui sont des êtres capricieux... Il faut leur demander la clef de l’énigme....

Très douce et légère. Une bière que je recommande vivement si vous aimez les bières passe-partout...

tderoeck (5148) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2010
Pours a clear darkyellow beer, fine white head that dissapates quickly. Smells like caramel and orangepeal, some citrus. Pleasant mouthfeeling with lots of carbon gas. First a sweetsour taste that is immediately replaced by a spicy hoppy bitter and the taste of bread. Aftertaste is very hoppy and dry with touches of citrus again.

Very fruity with slight honey aroma. Pale yellow cloudy colour with good head. Nice rich honey flavour with fruit hints in the finish. Light body with low to medium carbonation.

Diabobale (242) - ITALY - NOV 9, 2014
Una strong ale decisamente perfetta. Di colore dorato carico, con sentori fruttati, al palato risulta essere molto gradevole, con un buon tono alcolico, smorzato dalla dolcezza dei malti, con sentori floreali ed erbacei del luppolo. ottima persistenza

yankeefan21 (134) - New York, USA - MAR 15, 2012
On tap at the Merry Monk Albany. Clear golden yellow with a light head. Fresh grassy citrus aroma. Taste was crisp, refreshing, and very balanced. Cereal grains dominate, with a delicate grassy hop adding a touch of bitter for a delicate balance. Finishes between sweet and dry - extremely refreshing. Cereal grains and pale malt linger on the palate long after each sip. Light on the palate and dangerously easy to drink. If you are looking for a refreshing beer, look no further.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 30, 2012
Nice golden body with light haze and stable white bubbly head. No residue. Refined yeast and hop focused aroma. Fresh dough and grass. Foamy but pleasant carbonation. Light spicy bitterness in the taste, ending not too long. Well drinkable and very refined yet not subdued Belgian blond. Like it a lot, better than expected. Not as old fashioned or boring as many Belgian blonds/tripels are. Classic appeal, full of flavour. (22cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

944play (359) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Draft at Toad in the Hole in brand (frosted) glass. Clear enough gold with lasting white fluffy head and streams of bubbles. Grainy, slightly dusty, mild berry aroma. Big corn on the cob and subtle aromatic wood flavors. Dries out well for a balanced finish. Rewarding pilsy burps.

HomerJ79 (18) - Roma, ITALY - JAN 27, 2014
Average head. Yellow, slightly hazy. Fruity fragrance, some yeast. Low carbonation, balanced sugar level, some bitterness and promising aroma that doesn’t quite follow through. Citrusy flavor, but not emphasized. Lacks the staleness of many Belgians though.
