(bottle) pours a hazy deep amber colour with a frothy white head. aroma of yeast, cooked vegetables, raisins, some light bretty funk and melted butter. flavour is more raisins and melted butter, slightly resinous, with a hint of earth and a medium sweetness. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

angel77 (1097) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 27, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones, época belga. Cuerpo medio con 8.5 vol que casi es lo único que se aprecia en esta cerveza. Color dorado con tonos oscuros y espuma blanca bastante densa. Aromas frescos ligeramente afrutados y cereales y maltas con suave dulzor acabando con ligeros tonos especiados. No esta mal.

Pale gold with foamy head. Malts dominate with some acidity. Long finish in which alcohol starts to dominate. Nothing special

Bottle from SuperDino supermarket Puerto Mogan Gran Canaria. Golden in colour with a thin head though decent lacing. Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeast and slightly floral hoppiness. It does taste like a stong belgian blond but its just a bit too boozey, almost white wine like too, and certainly on the one dimensional side. There’s also some syrup sweetness that knocks it off balance. It’s not my favourite style anyway and I’m likely making a direct comparison with the likes of Duval - which also, might I add, has a tighter champagne like fizz. I’ll have another of these later, though not tonight, to confirm that I’m not being too harsh.

Sdaniel90 (407) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a deep golden colour with a magnificent offwhite lacey head. Very floral and citric aroma, with a wheaty earthiness. Smooth snd drinkable yet hits hard in the finish. Well balanced anf surpisingly good.

eduardlax (6) - - MAR 29, 2014 does not count
Cerveza Belga. Color dorado y fuerte presencia alcoholica en paladar. Para mi gusto ideal tomarla fresca, entre 5-8 grados de temperatura. Ideal para adentrarse en el mundo de las cervezas belgas.

Endlich mal wieder etwas Süffiges aus Belgien. Kein Knaller, aber solide Handwerkskunst mit Vanille, etwas Zucker und einigem an hefigen Momenten. Gut. Einfach gut.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
The beer pours out of the bottle in a deep golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of barley, bread, Belgian yeast, flowers and grains. Finishes off with Belgian yeast and flowers - like it started. Easy and smooth to drink, yet nothing that special.
