Enjoyable, easy to drink. Nice nose and flavors. Nice balance of hop and malt, a bit of metallic mouth though.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2005
A Mes rate: Malty and hoppy nose with some cookies and cream.Darkish blonde appearance with good head retention and pretty heavy lacing. Palate is good. A fairly chunky mouthfeel for a blonde. A good spicy and creamy finish. A decent beer.

33 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Light amber colour with a lance rocky white head. Yasty and sweet aroma. Nice complex flavour of sweet malt and yeast.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2005
Golden, boring. Smells of honey and malt. Some yeast, bascially no hops. Sweet and weak. OK for a beer, but barely decent for a Belgian. Lacks either acidity, alcohol or bitterness. Unfortunately.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2005
Poured clear orange amber, with a big lasting head that left some great lace. Very fruity aroma, which to me seemed dominated by grape juice. The flavour was quite sweet, in fact too sweet in my opinion as it didnít seemed to have any balancing bitterness. The palate was medium bodied and slightly chewy. Itís good but it lacks a bit of flavour.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2005
Enjoyable Belgian Ale. Golden coloured with a nice aroma. A bit fruity. Malty, fruity flavor. Nice brew, but not too special.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Clear, honey-golden hued...thick, rocky, creamy white head. Sweet, candy-ish nose, reminscent of the typical tripel....citrus zest...minor whiffs of tropical fruit. Okey-doke. In the mouth, warm and hoppy, a bit fruity, turning dry with a quickness. Leaves the palate far too soon, but has a pleasant stay, as long as it lasts. Further flavors are revealed on increased inspection, more fruit, peppers a touch, but they still play in a minor key. Soft and pleasing, while still spicy and containing a particular kick. Not the greatest blonde/tripel/whatever, but a fine drink nonetheless. I put off purchasing this one for quite some time, due to the cost, $10 a 6-pack. Thinking on it, itís much cheaper by volume than other Belgian ales, but considering the middling quality, you also get what you pay for. 72 ounces of this passable pale for $10 vs $8 -12 for 25 ounces of far Superior brew? Thatís the choice we have to make sometimes, but I believe, when on a budget, Iíll choose this one again.
