Pours hazed and lemon yellow with an orange pastel hue when held to the light in the room. Fat white head that is slow to fall and leaves a layer on top. Nose is bright with orange peel, lemongrass, a soft honey sweetness, little yeasty bite and a delightful faint tickle of lime. Some grass and a bit herbal. There is the faintest clove and banana in the background. Taste is dry and sparkling with ample carbonation. Tangy citrus bites and then sweet fruit peel soothes. The malt is light cracker with a touch of honey. The banana smooths out the beer and gives it a lasting quality to the palate. Finishes lightly sweet and tart with a mouthwatering citrus and little spicy kick from corriander. Herbal and grass keeps it bright and a bit bold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mooi goudgeel, enigzins troebel bier, bloemig, fruitig, smaak van gist en metaal, citrus. Lekker fris en sprankelend.

Bamsen78 (2969) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Draught @ Bier- & Eetcafé Gollem, Antwerp. Pours slightly hazy straw with small white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with notes of caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of hops and metal. Rough, estery and metallic aftertaste, without which the beer would be much better. Drinkable but not quite what I like.

guitarhero (18) - Dante’s hell, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
A good belgian strong ale, but nothing more, classic with hints of esters, banana, candy sugar and sweet fruits.

lamf (39) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2014
Indeed golden, with not so beautiful white head. Smells typic belgian, a little bit peachy, spicy, with some notes of alcohol in the background. Quite highly carbonated, fruity, drinkable but nothing else. Good Belgian blond ale, that’s what.

brnandersen (1826) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Cloudy, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, spices, light caramel malts, apricot, a herbal-spicy bitterness. Taste is bitter. Full body with a creamy, bordering thicker texture and an average carbonation. Good for a Belgian Blonde. Long lasting dry and fruity finish with a good amount of spicy bitterness. Some citrus. Rather good.

Dervock (439) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy light Orange with lacy white head. Marmalade, spice and sweet malt aroma. Sweet hint up front with a hit if the citrus and spice , transitions to a dry almost cider hit, then a sharp dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy with a lively carbonation.

Lekker bier. Het witte schuim trekt te rap weg en de smaak van melkzuur is te aanwezig.
