rosenbergh (6092) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
330 ml bottle. L08. BB 07/16. From belgianbeerfactory.com.
Dark reddish brown colour with a big foamy light tan head. Spices, dark fruits, tart apple, yeast and malt in the aroma. Interesting. The flavour is tartness, apple, spices, mild sourness, some hops, cinnamon and some caramel sweetness. Quite unbalanced but somewhat interesting flavour.

VDuquerroux (104) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle. 25cL. Home. Matte dark brown beer with a beige non persistant head. Aroma of caramel, spices, sugar, berries, chocolate. Ephemeral sweetness leads to more bitterness and sourness (medium). Oily texture. Carbonated, for sure ! Bitter finish then sour. I like very much this "Grand Cru". After tasting Artevelde, I was a bit disappointed. This one looks like a wine with fruity notes.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2013
Brune légèrement rougeâtre, effervescence forte, mousse beige crémeuse et tenace. Malts légèrement torréfiés, un rien surette, petite présence de fruits noirs, trop métallique, manque de corps. Bof...

Donker bier dat goed schuimt met in het begin sterke alcohol smaak en niet lang erna een licht caramel fruitige smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarcoDL (1544) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2013
Huyghe often has a special dry-sweet yeast. This one has that as well. It makes this otherwise ordinary Belgian blond a little bit more special.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
Alcohol is up front in the aroma but notes of fruit and sugary sweetness come through. Hazy brown-amber body is topped by a shy, off-white head that recedes to a partial cover. Sweet, fruity and boozy flavour. Medium-light body with strong carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle.
