(Drinking date: 17 June 2014) Hazy golden orange colour with a small layer of white foam. Looks delicious. Spicy aroma, especially laurell (laurier). Not really intense. The taste is really delicious. Really soft taste, and especially laurell in the taste. The taste reminds me of the Westmalle tripel, but this beer is softer and fresher. The beer is not sweet and not bitter. Really well balanced. Soft body, not too watery, medium carbonation. Very well done. One of the best blonde beers I have ever had. More special than the others.

Mooie goudkleur, geen schuim, erg veel koolzuurgas. Aroma van mout, zoetig. Smaakt apart, geen zoet, geen bitter, wel erg veel koolzuur. Prima bier.

oops (211) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Spices, yeast, malts and maybe some citrus in aroma. Tastes like usual belgian beer: malty, little bit sweet and some peppery notes. Decent beer.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Pale yellow, slightly hazy appearance. Head is relatively thin, but stays. Mild aroma, almost dusty, some bubblegum. Sweet initial flavor gives way to bitterness in the middle, followed by a long, almost cloying light sweet and herby flavor that finishes sour. Bitterness is surprising in light of the lack of hops in the beer. Texture is light-medium, with an oily texture that lingers in the back of thr throat, and a lively carbonation. Overall, not my favorite blonde. Fairly one-dimensional with the sweetness, although unique in being brewed with gruut and not hops.

puboflyons (2233) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 25, 2014
From the 330 ml. bottle stamped 41400. Slightly cloudy pale yellow pour with a small, short-lived white head. Aroma of pale grainy malts, herbal notes and honey. Subtle all around. Body is medium and smooth. Toasted grain, sweetness, and noticeable herbs in the taste followed by a slight pepper finale. Drinkable.

Clear golden color with a white head. Distinct aroma of yeast and banana. Medium body, banana and yeast
