Bosbouw (1578) - Gemonde, - NOV 16, 2013
Big Chouffe. Mooie oranjegele kleur met een volle fijne kraag. Ruikt fruitig, friszoet, kruiden en hop. Lekkere frisse, licht zoete smaak, met een kruidige bittere afdronk. Een van de betere blond bieren.

Golden brown colour with tiny head. Aroma of coriander, some other spices, hops and tropical fruits. The same is flavour with evident notes of coriander, especially in aftertaste, well hoppy, with low carbonation and medium bitterness. Very good.

nazbion (60) - Tübingen, GERMANY - APR 12, 2015
Pours beautiful golden yellow with persistent white head. Great aroma of herbal hops, spicy, blended with some caramel. Taste is greatly balanced, with medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation. A very well made beer.

Excelente blond, muito saborosa. Ela é um pouco mais adocicada no final que as outras blonds. Vale a pena tomar novamente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another superb Belgian Ale from Rory. Straight away you get the spivey yeast and the coriander. Sweet and alcohol rich. Back off or be culled.

susonagger (57) - spain, - APR 18, 2015
NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Sabia cerveza de color anaranjado-dorado acompañada por una espuma densa y persistente. - Aroma: Sus perfumes embriagadores no traicionan un cuerpo blando y complejo. Los aromas la hacen singular y agradable. Su final armónico y seco. - Cuerpo/sabor: Bastante afrutado, referencias a especias y a lúpulo.

Buena cerveza. Buen cuerpo, color dorado, gran espuma, sabores frutales y maltosos.

SlackerMads (1938) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy yellow/golden with a medium sized fluffy white head. Looks all lively and smells good. Nose is very fruity and sweet, honey, light dusty. Medium body, lively carbonation that works well, light acidic and low bitterness. Coriander, light pepper, flowers, apricot, skumbanan, oranges, light dust and hay/dry grass in the finish. There is some sweetness at first, but the carbonation balances it so it doesn’t get too heavy. Alkiehol doesn’t show. Long light dry finish. Lively and enjoyable.
