Bottle. Celebrating the acceptance into CC for our second adoption. Straw colored pour with thin head. Light, fresh aroma of apricot, yeast and spice. Smooth and crisp. Light baked bread, fruit and spices. Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

L'étiquette m'a tjs déplus mais décidément la bière ma plaît :-) Cette belle dorée non filtrée a du corps, de la mâche. Pas si forte, belle présence bouche, sans être exubérante. Hoppy très tranquille, plus ronde qu'exubérante, elle a néanmoins une réel identité. I like !

Bottle. I’ve sunk many of these in my time and am surprised it’s taken me this long to write something down. It used to be one of the attainable Belgians before the market exploded. Still tastes great and is close to my heart. Pours hazy Golden with a pillowy White head. Perfumed yeasty aroma with the promise of spice and coriander. Flavour still gets me. IT’s brimming with character. Orange citrus, spicy, earthy hops and a nice undercurrent of sweet malt. Customary dry finish. I’ll never go off this gear.

Light Hops, floral and some alcohol at the end. Very nice appearance, golden yellow colour and long lasting white foam. Taste is light cereal and ends in hoppy bitterness. A very nice beer to enjoy.

Een lekker biertje met een wat speciale smaak waar niet iedereen van zal houden, maar ik vind het goed.

freretoc (625) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2014
Bue à la pression en 25cl, couleur blonde mousse importante et effervescence assez prégnante, une bonne bière avec un attaque sur l’amertume et un goût de malt prononcé, fin de bouche pain frais et gentiane, agréable

Clear blonde with white foam. Cereal malty, yellow fruit and herbaceous, belgian aroma. The aroma reproposes itself in the taste, yellow fruit, malts, light caramel and aromatic hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prøve fra fad 10 cl. Dufter faktisk bedre end hvad den smager, men den smager virkelig godt, den er lidt spids på tungen i eftersmagen, bliver måske lidt doven til sidst.

Hazy golden body, small white head. Banana and bubblegum aroma. Thin to medium body, average carbonation. Nice one.

adasko (245) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 4, 2014
It has sour aroma of cherry. It’s pale orange color, little bit hazy with small head and nice lacing. In taste it’s typical Belgian beer, has lots of typical Belgian notes. Has a taste of cherry, plums, grapes, a bit of red wine notes and in the end fragile aftertaste of barrel. But not like an old, stale one, rather very fresh wooden barrel. It’s highly carbonated.
