Gedronken in Oud Brabant, pils kleur en helemaal helder, pluspunten, ik had hem hoppig verwacht maar helaas. Nie vies maar ook nie lekker

BOTTLE 33CL. Look: clear golden-amber, smallish off-white frothy head with below average retention. Aroma: sweet-and-sour fruit liquor, esters, alcohol, glue, stale grains. Taste: string lager-style fruitiness, cardboard, rubber, moderate but harsh phenolic bitterness, some astringency.

Pretty rough. Feels like a bad string lager.

Pours clear golden with a nice white head. Spicy, fruity aroma. Medium body and bitterness. Decent but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

budedou (361) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUL 12, 2014
Almost clear orange body. Nose: bitter herbs. Taste is clean and bitter with a dry hop finish. Pretty simple but not extra....

laiti (5554) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam. BBE 02/2015
Aroma is sweet and soapy with apricot. Flavour has toffee candy, alcohol, some toffee typical to Belgian ales and grassy hops in the background. Reminds me of boozy Kasteel Tripel – this isn’t just that boozy. Not as hoppy as one would expect.

Renobob (576) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Belle réalisation sur le houblon (bon d’accord ça devient un peu trop la mode quand même...). Ensemble correctement équilibré.

Beautiful light golden colour with form top. Good carbonation. Very thin, like Budweiser with some extra hops. Short finish

freretoc (578) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 4, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur blonde mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, en bouche on ne retrouve pas les arômes houblonnées mais plus le côté malté du truc un peu trop appuyé sur le goût du blé, pas top...

Bottle. Golden color with whitish head. Floral notes in aroma. Citrus, flowers and bit of spicyness in taste.

jaghana (3725) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle 33cl, a clear copper beer, medium head. Aroma is medium malty, honey touch, medium bitterness, toasted caramel, very drinkable, yellow fruit notes, not pretentious, ok !

Clear golden with a small white head. Skunky aroma with some pale malts in the background, where are the hops?. Taste - moderate malty sweetness, a bit of grassy hops, rough bitterness without any balance. Thin body. Quite dull.
