Blonde belge forte, alcool très présent et trouvée très peu intéressante point de vue aromatique. Pas terrible mais à retester. Bouteille bue au bar La tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 29/08/2013.

nilsas (1497) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
Søtlig duft av frukter, plomme m.m. Dunkel lys gyllen farge. Dekkende hvitt skum, heng langs kant. Frisk smak av frukter med en liten syrlig ettersmak.

lachneger (317) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2014
Goudkleurig pils met een volle witte schuimkraag. Veel co2. Smaak veel te zoet en een nare plakkerig nasmaak. Gedronken in Frankrijk ( wijn zijn ze toch echt beter in) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (1905) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from E.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a large, dense white head. Aroma of oranges, flowery hops and Belgian yeast esters. Some zesty citrus in the flavour, with melon and dusty grain. Finish was grassy hop, slight herbal notes and straw.

minutemat (1750) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
330ml bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Thanks to Blackhaddock for bringing this! Can’t say I was diggin this. Pours gold with thin frothy white head. Light citrus, light sweetness, thin spice, an almost lagery feel. Very disappointing for me, although I do have a bottle of this myself so may have to re-rate from a proper serving.

reynaldg (36) - - AUG 27, 2014
Pas mal faite, assez sucrée et fruitée, mais sans particularité aucune. Bof --- Not badly done, quite sweet and fruity, but not unremarkable.

SarkyNorthener (2099) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle@midland tasting group. Golden beer with small head. Aroma of honey and malts. Taste is slight honey, pepper and pale malts. Good beer. My 100th Belgian beer rating.

BlackHaddock (3895) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Shared at the Midlands meeting on 23rd Aug 2014: 330ml bottle provided by me. Let’s face it, the best part of this is the bottle art rather than the beer. Slight haze to the golden orange body in my glass, a cream coloured head sat on top for a while. Weak aroma, some citrus notes maybe. Strange blend of flavours that gave a malty based feel with a semi-sweet citrus hop finish, the alcohol was evident throughout, I thought it different and OK more than great.
