Gold, very light haze with a random small chunk of sediment or two in suspension. 3/4-inch custard-colored head, frothy, medium coarseness, excellent retention that even remains clinging to the sides of the glass long after the liquid has receded. Aroma is wet/green hay and grass, slightly medicinal/green herbs, a hint of licorice, a touch of light brown sugar pastry. Body is watery and oily-starchy, medium-fine carbonation blanket, creamy/frothy in the mouth with light burn. Flavor is green grass, slight bit of licorice, hint of wormwood, a touch of smooth bitterness in the finish, moderate linger. A touch of nectar sweetness. Overall, a fine BLSA with nothing offensive or too surprising, on the sweet heavier side, definitely distinct from a tripel. Head retention is truly top-notch!

Butelka, warka do 11 2016. Bardzo wysoka biala piana, redukujaca sie przez coraz wieksze, wrecz monstrualne bombelki (moze to troche ma zwiazek ze szklem duvela, ktore piane podtrzymuje). Samo piwo jasne, miodowo-pomaranczowe, ladnie, lekko metne. Aromat silny dosc, brzoskwiniowo-kolendrowo-drozdzowy. jest tez troche karmelu, gozdzikow, alkoholu. W smaku analogicznie, slodkawe, gorzkosc raczej niewysoka i z nalozona przyprawowoscia dosc intensywna. bardzo sympatyczne sumarycznie, niemniej to wystarcza na bycie najwyzej sredniakiem wsrod mocnych belgow z belgii. maly minus za kolendre za mocna jak dla mnie

I’ve had this beer quite a few times over the year and always enjoyed it. It pours with a nice white head. It’s hazy yellow in color. It smells of yeast and spice. It has a nice bready, spicy taste. A great example for the style. I really enjoyed this one. I had it from a bottle.

Subtile, fraîche et désaltérante. Un bière à boire en toutes circonstances et surtout à partager. La chouffe blonde fait partie de mon top 5 toutes bières confondues. On pourrait être tenté d'en boire jusqu'au bout de la nuit mais attention elle est bien plus forte qu'il n'y paraît ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ysok02 (183) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Robe blonde. Nez sur le fruit (fruits blancs, pomme), la levure, une légère note de malt. Bouche à l’attaque ample, fruitée et épicée, alcool assez présent et finale qui manque un peu de fraîcheur.
