Medium white head, crystal-clear golden colour. Perfectly sweet, fruity, vanilla aroma. Great mild, fruity taste. Kind of a honey-vanilla palate. Highly recommendable.

Pours clear gold with good white frothy head, nose of Belgian yeast (what else). Malty, but not overdone. A little fruit. Very smooth, some sweet spice. good effervescence. The best Belgian beer I have had, better than Duvel, Orval and Chimay.

Unde (337) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Slightly bronze looking beer, with big foamy head that lingers like an cloud above my beer. Leaves awesome lacing, you can see when you’ve taken your mouthful. Scent has sweet syrup and some exotic fruits, little citrus as well. Really soft mouthfeel, weissbier feel, some citrus and tannin. Like a blend of weissbier and belgian ale, and it works quite well! There was some buttery feel at start, but at the end it turned into bitter citrus. Quite nice belgian ale.

Very good head. Extremely smooth. The aroma is a bit faint at lower temperatures. The alcohol taste is definitely present, but no burn.

Clear golden head, white foamy with bubbles, dissipates rather quickly but after drinking a white coating stays in the original Grimbergen glass. Sweet malty aroma, hint of citrus. A sweet but very pleasant beer. Enjoyed it very much.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 28, 2000
This was a pretty good Abbey beer, though not as good as Leffe Blonde. A little on the sweet side, but good nonetheless. This is hard to find in the US.

A sour malty aroma. Rich gold color. Malty and slightly caramel flavor, slightly sour. Well balanced. Good.

thedm (4925) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 12, 2004
This bottled brew marked best before 8/10/04 poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of citrus dough mild coriander malt and was nice. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a vinous palate and a malty aftertaste. Its flavor contained citrusy malty hoppy notes and was very tasty.
