Pours amber with fairly low head. Sweet, estery, yeasty, wheaty aroma. Quite watery mouth feel. Sweet, estery & yeasty with some notes of toffee.

Pretty good, better than I expected, really. I expected more of a farmhouse ale for some reason, but this is spicy, slightly sour or tangy, and has some hoppy bitterness in the finish. I don’t taste as much tartness as some describe in this one, not at all. If anything, it’s still a bit too sweet, and that’s why I can’t drink much of it. I think if it had more alcohol to offset the sweetness a bit, I might like it better. The hops and the spicy carbonation do that to a certain extent, though. I like it, but in very small quantities.

nice amber color, dry and bitter, finishes off like a bohemian pilsner. Great for drinking in massive quantities.

Bronze-gold, clear colour, with creamy off-white head that disippated very quickly. Faint ,floral hops aroma. Weak but balanced body and palate and short non-descript finish. For my money its like almost indistinguable from Palm.

My least favourite Belgian Ale. It is definitely not as nice as Palm.

From the tap this is certainly a starter and a closer on a great beer night! Because it’s not as heavy as trappistes and special brews, this beer is easy to drink and cheap in Holland, which makes it a number one on my buying list!
