corkyrory66 (631) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Bière cataloguée par le brasseur « belgian pale ale » et par ratebeer belgian ale. De toute façon ce qui est clair (sans jeu de mots), c’est que c’est pâle … On devrait inventer pour cette bière la catégorie de « pâle ale » …. Je précise que mon exemplaire est à date en novembre 14, donc valide … Couleur jaune pâle (toujours) brillant. Clarté nette (il y a de quoi, elle n’est même pas refermentée …). Bulles nulles (tiens donc…). Mousse qui est un léger nappage insipide… Arômes (si on peut dire) de joint de caoutchouc, marmelade d’oignons (ratée), pointe de citron (pour faire oublier le reste …). 1ère bouche liquide sur des câpres, oignons cuits (ratés), croissant à la margarine … Arrière-bouche un peu sur la mie de pain blanc pas assez cuit. 2ème sur un babeurre infâme. 3ème où on se noie dans l’indifférent !!! La longueur est strictement nulle. L’alcool est banal. Finale : sans objet. CONCLUSION : une catastrophe complète pour Van Honsebrouck, qui nous livre là un produit de très très très (puissance 10) basse classe … Je viens de coter une bière française à 4,5 … Quelle infamie !!!

Franksv6 (215) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Blond beer with a small white head, average carbonation. Smells like hops and fruit. Tastes like belgian yeast, hops and some bitterness. Least tasty kasteelbier.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 7, 2014
bottle, at kavarna francis on pilsen square. light golden with a thin, unenthusiastic head; lightly grassy aroma, some resiny hop character but also a bit of dried dog food; dull, aged hop character, modest bitterness, strangely not that enjoyable

Surf sur la vague houblon. Peu de caractère ni de personnalité. Pas convaincu

Habanero (2663) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear yellow with an average, white head. Aroma is fryity notes, yeast and a little spice. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A nice and crisp Belgian ale.

tania_nexust (196) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours a bright gold colour with a lot of carbonation. Aroma is faint but has a little hoppiness and some sweetness. Taste is also very light - some bitterness, a hint of Belgian yeast & candi sugar - but not a massively flavoured beer.

330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour white head. Aroma of grains, citrus and herbs. Flavour of grainy malts, grassy bitterness, fresh herbs, pear and cardboard. Light bodied and high carbonation. Decent.
