patrick767 (3717) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2009
bottle - Pours mostly clear blonde with a two finger white head. It smells of bready malt and citrus accented yeast. The flavor is a nice balance of pale malt and bittering hops. Itís medium bodied and overall not outstanding, but itís good.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Hay reddish with nice glow, frothy head and beautiful carbonation. Strawberry peach mandarin smell, with hints of orange and bread. Subtle. Somewhat alcoholic metallic freshness with hints of fruit - apples/pears and chlorine. Some honey in there. Sour sweet salty with a fresh watery palate. Woody finish.

Eructoblaster (3260) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with yeasty flakes, lively carbonation and an average white frothy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, herbal and spicy hints. Very well balanced taste that hides the alcohol almost perfectly. Ends with a decent bittersweet, warming finish. Very enjoyable!

heavy (2265) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 25, 2009
14/03 0.33 l bottle from beershop.hr, shared with Doggythedog. It poured golden body with some particles and small white head. Hoppy aroma, orange and some apricot with notes of malt and alcohol. Alcoholic flavor as well, sugary with apricot and quite rustical. Finish was shorter, slightly sweet and alcoholic, like all of its components. This is not a malt liquor so I canít consider it quite good.

Marko (4175) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 15, 2009
0.33l bottle from the Beershop (like all these Belgians weíve had yesterday and will have today), shared with heavy (thanks!). Poured a hazy golden body, full of particles. Medium sized head went away somewhat fast. Fruity, peachy nose, some hop, some alcohol. The taste is sweet, somewhat bready, slightly acidic. Fine hop, a bit flowery. Light maltiness, peach. Ok. My first from Huyghe I reckon!

Bottle. Creamy white excellent mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty heavy hoppy and fruity aroma. Lots of citrus. Heavy bitter fruity flavor. Citrus and very light anis notes. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. I would have thought this was a trippel!

bonfunck (149) - Waasmunster, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2009
33cl bottle in Defoo @Ghent blond beer with a lot of yeast. Nose of aromatic hops strong taste and flavour. Aftertaste is strong but not so good. Taste is a bit empty and the hoppy nose does not correspond with the aftertaste
