2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into my Watou trappist glass. One finger white head that fades quick and a medium gold blonde color. To the nose are malt, sugar, a very light hop presence, and cotton candy. The taste holds ots of malt along with apples, perhaps granny smith as there is a bit of a sour/tartness. The aftertaste has Malt, yeast, apple, and other assorted fruits. A thin medium body with high carbonation. The aroma, which I enjoyed, faded quickly. This beer feels like Leffe Blonde but not quite as good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A clear blonde beer, with a medium sized and disappearing white head. Quite sweet malty aroma with slight spicy and peppery notes and a hint of alcohol. The flavour has some fruitiness and a light bitterness in the finish. Dry, light to medium bodied with high carbonation (perhaps too high). The aftertaste is not so long. Far from bad, but too industrial and not satisfacting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Clear golden with little visible carbonation. The white head, despite being small holds itself nicely. Fruity pineapple aromas, althouth rather more subtle in comparison with the last few Belgian beers I’ve drunk. The flavours are sweet and appley with a thick and dryish mouthfeel. A pleasant bitter finish slowly descends upon the tongue, rounding this off to an enjoyable close. Not overly complex but highly enjoyable.

Bottle. Very light in color, blond and clear. Bright white foamy head. Fizzy and water consistency. Strong "beer" (hops & yeast) smell. Reminded me more of a Pilsner than an ale. Crisp clean taste, lite and refreshing. Good summer beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light straw color with a nice bright white head. The nose is light but just a touch of fruit with a little bready yeast. What was missing in the nose comes through a little better in the mouth. The front to mid palate relatively bursts with friuit followed by a gentle maltiness and a little bread dough. Finishes crisp with just a slight sweetness lingering in the after taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful golden beer with white fluffy head. No chill haze. Has a typical fruity/yeasty Belgian aroma. Tastes sweet with only some phenolics and hoppiness to balance it out. Not as dry and refreshing as other examples.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am a fan of Grimbergen, since the first time I had one in Brussels. I thought this was a delicious beer... until I saw that it was supposed to be a tripel. I had to dock it some based on that, because it would be a great generic blonde ale of some sort. Snorin’ Sam .

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle - pours clear golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light and very fruity, lots of yeast, candy, with a good dose of banana. Otherwise, fairly simply and pleasant. Flavour very similar, quite yeasty, very refreshing, clean and simple. Candied banana dominates along with Belgian yeast. Went down very easy.
