dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, - JAN 16, 2005
This is a two year old bottle. This golden ale has a long lasting lacy belgian head (wish my wife did as well). There is quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The aroma reveals sweetness, malty, doughy and clean. It is very balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness. There is an overiding dry phenolic-almost solvent like finish. It is not a brewing so much as a yeast induced quality which might make this an isolated incident (this bottle). Overall it is a tasty brew but needs refinement.

colui72 (313) - HONG KONG - JUN 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 Disappointing but I guess the bottle wasn’t well kept. Very hazy, strong yeast and alcohol taste. Didn’t like it.

jamaty (1325) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Color miel,algo turbia. Dedo y medio de espuma. Aroma refrescante y frutal. Podría parecer una triple: comparte muchas características. Pero no. Es diferente. Sabor muy frutal, en el que sobresale pera, naranja y sobre todo piña. Buen tono y carbonatacion acentuada que resalta el conjunto. Y como colofón, un final bien amargo y el calorcito de su alta graduación,que deja un memorable recuerdo y pide más. Sorprendente.

MrHangover (3300) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very yeasty, fruity, bready and Belgian. Flavor is moderately sweet, some boozy notes, loads of fruity yeast and has a light, thick mouthfeel because of the low carbonation and the yeast. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel though, hard to describe but quite an average BSA in my book.

minutemat (2554) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
330ml bottle, present from Belgian father-in-law. Pours hazy blonde with nice foamy head. Lovely creamy blonde flavours with a balanced vanilla / tropical fruit sweetness. Eminently drinkable with a real palette-grabbing blonde character.

rikstar (1454) - NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2015
Goudgeel met een bescheiden witte kraag. Geur is citrus, citroen thee en een beetje gist Smaak Is wat vlak, met vanille en citroen zeepsop. Tja niet echt spannend
