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.

Une industrielle tout à fait honnête, voire mieux, un caractère et une bouche bien affirmés. Agréable.

It is quite carbonated and clear coloured. Anyway, it tastes good. Nothing special to say about it.

Nevalainen (151) - FINLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Clear golden color with stabile creamy white head. Notes of spices. It’s also spicy in taste at first, but gets pleasant sweet taste quickly after. Well balanced beer, that gives a good experience.

christhoel (235) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Quite carbonated but my bottle only produced only a small very short lasting head. Quite weak faint hoppy yeasty aroma. Medium bodied with less bitter more sweet corn syrup malty wheat beer type flavours. Frankly I can’t see why others have rated this so highly.

0,3 bottle. Pours gold colour with small white fully dimishing head. Aroma has cookie, grain, flowers, apples, sweets. Initial flavor is heavy sweet, light bitter, acidic. Body is light, clear liquid, lively carbonation. Aftertaste is average long and light bittersweet, moderate astringent, light alcoholic.

Mwah. Net als alle andere Grimbergen bieren is dit ook niet best. Zit een vreemd, ietwat zurig smaakje aan.
