StueyD (1136) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
A lively, hazy golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light aroma, yeasty sourness and a hint of lemony hops, a touch grassy too. Dry mouthfeel. An initial sourness is tempered by a fruity hop flavour, full of zesty citrus fruit, grass and hay! This all mellows to a mildly dry fruity finish.

adamah (214) - - MAY 28, 2013
Yeasty, floral and fruit aroma. Pours a clear yellow color with lighty head and good lacing. It tastes very sweet but finishes dry with some slight bitterness. The body is very light and watery but it hides the high abv very well.

solidfunk (3817) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Lots of perfume in this aroma. Smells like an airport duty free shop. Pours golden blond with fizzy head and minimal lacing. Finishes perfume sweet with touch of bitterness. Booze well hidden. A well-balanced beer that tastes remarkably light considering. Bottle from Spinnakers.

77ships (3680) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2013
Hazy orange, amber hue, instantly gone big creamy white head, too bad.
Very sweet yeast nose, light apple pie, touch honey, esters, sweet spices and malts.
Sweet apple, yeast, esters, light floral, touch apples, honey, white bread, very light alcohol, sweet flowers, very light floral hops, bitter esters.
Creamy yeast, lightly fizzy.
Pretty standard sweeter Belgian Strong Ale but clearly above average. Very enjoyable & easy to drink.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur jaune-dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger d’abricots, notes de pêches et de bananes) et légèrement épicées (poivre, traces de coriandre), moyen de pain avec des notes d’alcool doux, de miel et de houblon floral et herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-élevé et une texture aux notes champenoises. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger de pommes, notes de pêches, traces de bananes) avec un léger goût épicé (poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût de pain et de miel puis progressivement se rajoute et ce, jusqu’en finale un goût légèrement amer de houblon floral et herbeux, avec des notes d’alcool doux réchauffant. Post-goût moyen-long et sec, léger-moyen amer de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes, notes de pelures de pommes), de houblon floral et d’alcool doux des traces d’épices (poivre doux). (2006)

Lagerboy (1208) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Mostly unclear (mostly) golden yellow, creamish white head slowly settles and lasts. Aroma of light sweet malt and fruity yeast. Spritzy on the tongue, earth and dirty yeast gives way to a sweet maltiness, soft fruitiness, floral and spice notes. Lively carbonation, light bodied for the style, low hopped. ABV very well hidden. Fruity dry finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

juanenka (244) - valladolid, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2013
Botella. Presencia limpia con corona blanca poco persistente. Aroma levaduras y malta típica belga. Sabor interesante dulce y ácido y bastante maltoso con final seco y dulce. Interesante acidez ligeramente achampanada en toda la boca. Postgusto largo seco y dulce

KarelCascade (10) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2013
Bit spicier than Duvel. Stronger blond beer. Liked it, yet, only drink one at the time.

danielecamo (405) - ITALY - MAR 3, 2013
Aspetto giallo dorato, schiuma non molto fine ma presente e abb persistente, si nota una carbonazione importante. Aroma di furtta gialla, speziato, maltato non molto pulito. Palato che ritrova la frutta gialla con varie sfumature, ripulito da una corbonazione molto spinta, quasi eccessiva.
