Cloudy blond color (first glass to be poured from this keg), with giant and creamy head, covering the sides of the glass like a lace made of yogurt. The aroma is graceful and impressive, with crispy malt, light Belgian yeast, delicate grassy hops. The body is light, with mild malt flavor; the yeast character is too much (was the keg shaken?) giving a spicy, peppery note, increasing the bitterness, and ending with some astringency. Must try a cleaner glass...
Cloudy deep blond color, with a huge and compact head. Very good aroma, strong, spicy hops, light fruitiness too. Good body strength and good malt flavor, quite dry (because of the strong bitterness), with a sharp spicy character. The final is powerful and long. It doesn’t betray the Belgian tradition, but pushes it in a right direction; the combination of spicy Ales with a more powerful hopping has a good result here. Very good.
Hazy blond color; nice perlage; thin persistent head. Good hoppy aroma, some malt and spices. Dry mouthfeel, but correct body strength, some malt flavor (light), quite sharp spicy character (coriander and white pepper), strong bitterness. Pleasant, refreshing.

Tap at Mugs in Brooklyn. I started my night with this - great choice. This beer is highly drinkable and fairly light, though not lacking in flavor. Pours a light yellow with modest haze and a moderate white head. Holds a very floral aroma with some nice bready malts. Flavor has a nice sweetness to it, along with wheat and citrus notes. Some faint bitterness meanders. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes clean and smooth. Very good and refreshing.

Draught - Bruxellensis Festival. Hazy gold with thin off white head. Hoppy aroma. OK in mouth, some cream. Really hoppy, dry finish, bit like de Ranke XX bitter, but not as extreme

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 33cl, thx to JensenTaster. It pours a hazy, orange body with a creamy off-white head. Spiced, citrusy nose with pale malt. The flavor starts with pale malt, then a rather unusual (for a Belgian beer) hoppy bitterness enters and takes control of the tastebuds, all the way into the finish, and staying there for a good while. Medium fullness and quite dryish. As mentioned, it’s sort of unusual, but I also find it a strange one, and actually, too bitter. (080301)
