vickey9 (412) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Hazy blond, firm white foam. Nose is strange probably because of an announced Myrica. Taste is rather sweet. Body is a medium, texture a bit watery. Palate is tincture. An experimental beer. B@H

paulvanpelt (292) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Nevelig, goudgeel met stevige witte kraag. Bier heeft een bijzonder aroma door de toevoeging van gagel. Kruidig, bitter. Een fris en licht biertje, ondanks de 7,5%, ideaal voor de zomer.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
(750ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, apple, oxidation notes, and butterscotch. Flavor of caramel, creamer, white chocolate, fruit, cardboard, herbs, and grass. Unpleasant.

gerstenat (3) - - NOV 12, 2012 does not count
Blond, hazy beer. It has a fresh, fruity and hoppy taste, with some hints of herbs and honey. A notable blond, due to the use of gale (Myrica gale). It gives the beer a unique taste!

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear copper, soapy white bubbles. Nose of caramel, melon, rich, marshmallow, sweet. Taste of Marshmallow, sweet, not a lot of hop character, Medium bitter, herbal, medium oily body. Nice linger.

JanEric (959) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2012
33cl Bottle from an organic shop. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of alcohol, gale, which has a cardamon/ginger character, quite herbal, and like Plaas said, reminds me a lot of Jopen Koyt, a gruyt-beer. Flavour is light to medium sweet, alcohol, light fruity, lots of gale/cardamon, floral and herbal, bitter malty and alcohol finish. Medium-bodied. Decent stuff, quite nice actually.

Plaas (82) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Nice brew. Basically, this is just another Belgian triple, but gale is added to the beer. The gale makes it special. It reminds me of the Jopen Koyt, but is not that deep and rich. Sweet, spicy but easy.

hazy amber color with ivory head. Caramel, honey, herbal vegetal aromas. Light body. sweet candi sugar, caramel flavors with earthy herbs, dirt--decent.

kraddel (2432) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2012
drank a 33 cl bottle at hevig hoekske ( antwerp) the metal edition gageleer ( same beer, same producer, diffrent label ) . the beer is blond, maybe just a litle bit to much carbonation, but not way to much. flavour is more common, but just a little more spiced , herbs,.. its a nice beer
