Smells of sour fruit and straw. Pours golden and cloudy with thick white head. Tastes of raspberry, bitter orange and other sour fruit (cherry?) slightly sweet, slightly grassy and some spices. The body is medium, low carbonation, slightly bitter. A great tasting beer.

Vignale (2112) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
flaska från beergium. Gyllenfärgad, klar, poröst vitt skum. En lite strakare blond där lite alkohol slår igenom i både doft och smak utan att störa så mycket. Måttlig sötma, lite druvskalssträvhet, lätt estrig äppelfuktighet och drag av apeinskal, annars inga större smaker. Lite väl anonym utan att ha några större fel.

VDuquerroux (316) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Bottle, 33cL. Home. An orange opaque landscape with yellow hues; medium white head with a medium retention. Citrus aroma, herbs. Medium sweet, a bit warming. Medium bitter. Medium body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, warming finish. Overall, OK belgian ale : good average fruity aroma and taste, a bit too fizzy. 4/24/2014 : 7-4-7-4-16 Bottle, 33cL. Home. A pale, unclear, yellow beer with orange hues. Large thin white head. Good persistence. Fruity aroma, caramel, alcohol, herbs. Medium to heavy sweet (alcoholic note), light bitter. Medium body and texture. Average carbonation. Long sweet finish. Still, refreshing ! Overall, a really good beer. I prefer when the temperature is getting higher (8-10°C).

ABT_S54 (168) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
33cl bottle poured in a trappist glass. Pours a lively blonde colour with a wonderful foamy head. Taste is rather subdued but is a nice mix of sweet malts and fruity notes. One of the better blonde beers.

Sigmund (5193) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Golden colour. Sweetish aroma, notes of white kandij sugar syrup and spicy Belgian ale yeast. The flavour is not as sweet as I feared, quite nice actually. Mild spicy notes.

Holmen1 (2603) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Flaske fra min favorittleverandør av belgiske øl, Belgisk Bryg og konsumert i lag med fornøyde venner på Sigmunds hytte april-14: nam, dette er friske og syrlig lettdrikkelige saker! Litt krydder skaper en ekstra piff.

gunnar (5474) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast and peppery hops. Taste is herbal malty, light sweet malty, nothing to remember.
