33 cL bottle thanks to Ungstrup. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Very herbal garlic aroma. Flavour is soft malty but mainly heavy garlic flavour. Soft finish, once I get past the garlic it is okay but the garlic aroma ruines this beer for me.

Bottled@One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Hazy golden colour, mediumsized whie head. Aroma is caramel, hops, some yeast and alot of fruity notes. Flavour is quite attacking Belgian blonde with spices and fruits. Flavour and aftertaste is kinda garlic if you know what to look for.

omhper (19932) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Strong aroma of ripe red apples. Sweet and fruit with evident yeast character. Rounded mouthfeel with some lively carbonation. Feels like a standard offereing from de Proef with no flaws, but also nothing to separate it from the mainstream Belgian ales. And at 8% I require more character from a beer.

madmitch76 (16098) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2009
17th August 2008. Hazy golden beer. Unusual taste - it’s bitter throughout with a dry finish. But there is a couple of sweet notes of bubblegum and sugar. The aftertaste is hop bitterness. Found this slightly hard work.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 2009-02-20, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Hazy golden color; creamy head. Delicate aroma, with some farm, and Belgian yeast; light honey. Ordinary malt flavor, a bit of hay and light Belgian yeast. Correct bitterness. Not impressive.

2006-10-17, bottle, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy golden color; generous creamy head. Quite original beer, a Belgian blond ale with a touch of herbs, giving a nicer aroma but not that impressive taste; light soap aroma. Residual sweetness, and some vegetables. Dry final with strong bitterness.
