wojciechianna (281) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Highly carbonated, huge head. Aroma of malts, alcohol, and a bit of hops or citrus. Tastes dry, malty, and bitter because of the alcohol. Beer intense in alcohol, but not much in flavours.

Nogal een hoge bittere na-smaak, de smaak zelf is op zich goed, een donkere kleur.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 Pours amber with a nice white head. Aromas are nice, herbal, notes of cereal. The taste is fully charged with alcohol though. If someone had told me that this one was a 13% beer I would have believed them. But it is only 7%... bad, bad balance* that worsens the taste. The texture is quite watery, if however it is medium body and the finish is neither too shot nor too long. The alcohol taste - it seemed almost like fortified beer! - is a let down. -------& Maybe it’s a bad batch, or a particularly old bottle. However, I’m not going to have this one again in the near future to compare...

A very nice belgian hoppy golden pale ale. First smell is a little underwhelming but really pleasant. First sip immediately dives in. Lots of flavour, some bitterness, hops dancing on your tongue. A really good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

willisread (2473) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle from Masuyo’s. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a huge rocky white head. Lots of yeast on the nose with some light lemon zest, banana, clove, cardamon and alcohol aromas present. Starts out with a little sweetness, then finishes with a strong bitterness with some woody and mineral character as well. Great carbonation with a medium body. Excellent lacing throughout. An almost saison-like character but the booze shows on the finish. Very enjoyable classic Belgian.
