3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the most popular Belgian strong ales. Huge white head which collapses fast in warm weather. Hops are quite present and the taste of yiest. Very refreshing but dangerous beer.

Citron et poivre peuvent grossièrement résumer l’expérience. Une senteur fraiche et accueillante se dégage de la bouteille. Une bière plutôt pétillante, extrêmement facile à boire et d’un goût cristallin. L’alcool est tellement bien caché que c’en est dangereux! Une bonne bière.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale hazy blond with a big white head. (In the original glass the head is huge.)
Aroma of sweet tropical fruits (banana) and honey and wheat.
Taste starts light acidic with crispy, peppery mouthfeel and finishing with some bitternes, good aftertaste. The alcohol is there but it rounds of the nice tastepalate.
medium body and carbonation.
This is quite a classic. And yes Moorgat have shown that it can be refined here and there with the triple hop. Also quite copied in style but most times not as refined as the original.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Nothing special to look at, yellow/orange with some foam on top. Fruity Belgian beer profile to the aroma, lots of bubblegum and banana hints. This fruitiness is joined by sweet sugary flavors and alcohol that vaporizes in your mouth. Great thick mouthfeel that sticks to your throat going down. Lively carbonation. All-around classic, and very easy to find.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, poured into a wine glass. White white body, but slightly hazy, huge frothy white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Very enticing, but I can’t pick out any distinct notes, besides an almost weizen like banana hint. Taste is sweet, subtle nips of bitterness at the back. Alcohol is present throughout, and very pleasant it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow, barely clear. Big foamy and carbonated head, white in coulour. Wheat and honey aroma, and slightly nutty. Very wheaty, being that it is a BSB. Some banana and tropical in the midnotes, and a slight bitter in the finish. Some sour in the mid as well. Advanced palate.
