Pours a nice amber/copper color, but the head quickly disappears. Aroma has a bit of the caramel sweetness and a bit of biscuity malt. Smooth beer thats fairly balanced, but it does leave a lingering sweetness on the palate.

330 ml. bottle. Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head. Mild aroma of malt, caramel, and grass. Taste is malt, grass, caramel, and some yeast. Nothing bad here, but not much good either.

adamnowek (136) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Is this the best you can do, Antwerpen? It looks quite nice, with its dark amber appearance. It falls flat everywhere else, though. Hoppy and a bit bitter, which doesn’t go well with the fact that there is no other taste to this beer.

Diacetil aroma, with grainy sweets. Sweet body. No hops. Boring finish. Tasted at Rootz in Den Haage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fantti (712) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kuparinoranssina ja kirkkaana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella pumpulisella ja vahvaa pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on melko mieto. Siitä löytyy makeaa hedelmäisyyttä ja karamellisuutta, sitrustakin on hieman, muttei kovin monipuolinen. Maku on parempi, mausteita ja makeaa hedelmää on selvästi, hieman vähemmän sokerisuutta ja ruohoisuuutta. Suutuntuma melko hiilihappoinen ja kevyesti katkeroitu, makeutta on sopivasti. Perushyvä belgiale, joka on tuoksultaan melko mieto ja maultaan simppeli ja suoraviivainen. Ei valittamista, muttei mikään ilotulituskaan.

BitchPls (568) - FINLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Amber beer with a beige head. Sweet bread and soap on the nose. Toffee, caramel, cooked vegetables. Light body. Average carbonation. Only a hint of bitterness. Not that pleasant yet not the worst either.

BMMillsy (1430) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Had on tap while in Antwerp. Pours amber colored with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light bready malts, faint yeast, and a bit of grass. Flavor follows with bready malt and crisp grassy finish, bit of caramel, with very little of that Belgian yeast flare, and extremely low on the sweetness. Light plus body with medium plus carbonation. Seems like quality of a Sam Adams for Belgium. Not bad, but not sure why one would choose this when there are so many other options.

Bronze-gold, clear colour, with creamy off-white head that disippated very quickly. Faint, floral hops aroma. Weak but balanced body.
