ryecatcher (650) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy, pale orange with massive fluffy white head, excellent retention. Poured it a bit overzealous so I got some of the sediment in there, but no problem. Nose is hay, Belgian yeast, lemon. Mouth is slightly bitter up front, spicy yeast, orange rind, grass, a bit of malty cereal, fades into bread and some lingering hoppy bitterness. Nice little beer.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Edition 2013. Blonde légèrement voilée, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Une amertume fruitée pamplemousse et résineuse attaque directement le palais et des notes de miel apparaissent par la suite dans ce qui reste un classique de La Senne. Edition 2012. Blonde foncée trouble, belle pétillance, col blanc moyen. Très amère, légèrement épicée avec un petit retour fruité. Typique de La Senne.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Deep and low toned, with subtle nuances and a bitter edge. Earthy, dusty floorboard, savory, Unami, yeast layers, with bitter citrus notes. Deep and complex, while also being understated and delicate. An impressive brew which requires your attention to fully appreciate, though is still super easy to mindlessly drink. Medium bodied. Great mouthfeel. Lingering finish of above mentioned flavors. DRY. Very well made. Very modest for such a fine beer. Yeast is definitely the showcased element here. I think this is a great example of a Belgian blonde ale. Unlike the sweet, tropical, spiced American blondes like Pranqster, etc. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Mortlach (959) - Rome, ITALY - APR 15, 2013
27/03/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Dorata, viva, limpidissima, schiuma bianca molto abbondante e persistente. Al naso parecchi off flavours, puzza di fogna, qualche sentore di scorza d’arancia e crosta di pane. In bocca va appena meglio, anche qui arancia, malto, luppolo e una punta acidula. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione corretta. Non era in perfette condizioni, dovrei riprovarla.

Very much along hte lines of a zippier duvel with a bolder bitter hop finish.

This beer is one bitter ale... In aroma and taste prevale hop notes and abstringent final... I dislike this type of beer...

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds (Lowlands ’13). Pours a clear orange amber, comedy Duvel-style head. Aroma is lovely Belgian fun: really peppery, with apricot, banana and Belgian yeast. Taste is nice and light: soft apricot/banana, mineraly fun and Belgian yeast, with a nice and conspicuous pepper note from the middle to the end. Bitter, dryish finish. Hits the spot, no pretence, just a lovely beer.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
On tap at Brasserie Arnage, Cesena. It pours clear golden with a large soapy white head. Aroma is citrusy with orange peel and hops. Grass, flowers and some yeast. Taste is clea and refreshing, quite hoppy with orange zest, citrus and violets. Hints of bready-peppery yeast. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall, balanced and refreshing, very nice.

visionthing (2395) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2013
On tap at Crowbar, Oslo. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Yeasty Belgian aroma with fruits and some lightly hoppy notes. Medium sweet and fruity with a quite dry and lightly bitter finish. Lightly bitter aftertaste with hints of citrus. Nice and refreshing Belgian ale! (2013-04-25)
