skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
From the Bier Tempel in Brugge. Aroma is mild - just the slightest hint of dry pasta. The easing in of the hops to the flavor is impressive and consistent. The finishing touch is a little bit of tongue dancing - spritz. A low ABV hoppy beer with a touch of Belgian yeast is welcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one at Zythos a few years ago. Not bad. Golden pour. Sizable white head. Little bit of lacing. Sweet malty taste with a slight bitterness and hop presence. Not a bad beer.

shorelinetrail (4) - - AUG 8, 2015 does not count
Aroma: hoppy, citrus, akin to English bitter. Appearance: very light, cloudy, with sediment, head off white. Taste: light sweetness, very bitter, hoppy and dry, slight wheat and pine flavours. Palate: light body, long lingering bitterness, fizzy. Overall very unusual and palatable beer.

Moravius (864) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Belgianzbeerz.com. - Hellgelb, milchig trüb; üppiger Schaum. - In der Nase kräftige Zitronenschale, etwas Grapefruit, schwache Kräuternote (Petersilie?), ein Anflug von parfümierter Seife. - Antrunk hefig-weich und etwas dünn mit prägnanter trockener Zitronenschale. Mild rezent, angenehm weiches Mundgefühl. Im Abgang mehr herbe, grasige Pampelmusenbittere, angenehm trocken. Wuchtig bitterer Nachtrunk. - Frisch aber etwas einseitig gehopft, fast etwas schmalspurig. Mir fehlt hier die ölige Schwere und füllige Hopfenbittere der besseren Biere von La Senne. Ob das an der niedrigen Drehzahl liegt? Ein höherer Alkoholgehalt ist ja nicht nur Zutat, sondern auch wichtiger Geschmacksträger.

ChtiBreizh (183) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 8, 2015
A very light pale ale with average white head. Citrusy, hay, european bittering hops. Low sweetness with a very bitter finish. AVerage carbonation, refreshing.

jcr (2365) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft. Cloudy yellow/gold with a frothy/pillowy white head. Light aroma of toasted grain, floral hops, bread, barnyard, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry finish with a earthy, raw grain taste and a light, lingering bitterness. Hints of grapefruit. The more I drank, the more I liked it. What a difference between this and Chimay Doree which was also on tap and about the save ABV. Taras Boulba much more complex, more balanced and satisfying.

rayaron (777) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle 330ml. Hazy yellow with small bubbly white head. The aroma is yeasty with notes of hay and candy, some fruitiness (peach, citrus). The flavor is yeasty and hoppy, medium bitterness, piney and fruity, notes of white wine and candy, dry with lingering bitterness. Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied. Nice hoppy Belgian ale.

IPAgutten79 (787) - Skui, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
Lys gul ugjennomsiktig farge med skyhøyt hvitt fluffy skum. Aromaen er god nok, her er det sitron, gjær og noe krydder. Smaken er en mer av en skuffelse, syltynn konsistens mikset med noe sitron, belgisk gjærsmak og en lett bitterhet. Ellers finner jeg noe spark i ettersmaken, noe jeg finner gledelig med tanke på inntrykket ellers på smaken. Nokså tørr.

Klassiches Belgian mit ordentlicher Hefe und angenehm im Hopfen. Recht fluffig, viel Perlung, leichte Fruchtigkeit. Vollkommen ok.

josanguapo (309) - SPAIN - JUL 31, 2015
From XXXII, from summer sale. In Duvel glass. Playing Memoria. Nice color, but the acidic touch it has isnt of my liking. Its also dry and not refreshing. I could finish it, but didnt enjoy it.

McTapps (5834) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a hazy golden-amber colour with a steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of Belgian yeast, caramel, amlt, hops, flowers, biscuits and cloves. Easy to drink, smooth to drink. Good one.
