Draft. Hazy yellow color with a white head. Sweet yeastie aroma. Sticky sweet yeast, light clove and some banana flavor.

A golden pour and one of the best blond beers. A good balance from the ingredients. Doesn't taste strong in alcohol but it is. Fine herbal taste but not too strong.

Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange hue with a thin, 1-finger, white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a wispy lace. Creamy and spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a citrus background and hints of hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Excellent beer

Bottle. Pours a handsome hazy yellow with a firm white head. Aroma is sweet, some citrus. Taste is very crisp, citrus and hops. Pretty high carbonation. A classic belgian blonde strong ale.

Une classique belge qui tire pas mal sur le houblon. Epices en fin de bouche. Ne pas trop en abuser car le mal de crâne est quasi-systématique ;)

Coloração dourada, turva. Espuma branca, fina, de moderada duração. Aroma floral mas com toque apimentado. Sabor marcante de corpo moderado com predomínio do lúpulo levemente apimentado (que persiste no retrogosto), sem qualquer malte. Pouco se percebe os 8% de álcool. Cerveja com aroma melhor que sabor, que deixa desejar no corpo.

Belgian and hoppy aroma at the same time! Golden yellow color with nice white head. The taste is Belgian and fresh at the same time and the palate is quite citric. Overall a good Belgian kind of IPA.

leebotton (145) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Banana, rich, slightly caramel aroma. Poured a very slightly cloudy golden amber. Lovely rich caramel flavour with notes of banana. Very clean. High carbonation with an almost warming tingle. Has the brett funk but this one tastes young (BBE 09/2016). Slight bubblegum. Good.

Can’t believe I never posted a rating for this one. On tap. Hazy orangy mahagony colour that leaves a nice long lasting lace. The aroma is very spicy/peppery with some yeasty esters. Very expressive. More of the same on the palate with a sweet yeasty texture and medium body. It drinks very well for an 8% beer and I could do worse than ordering this one with my meal.
