33cl bottle. From the in-laws. Best before 2014-12-01. No brew-date or batch info. It poured an golden colour with a small white head. Lots of floaters in the glass. Aroma is very faint. Small notes of belgian yeast and caramel. Flavour is classic belgian yeast. Sweet malty notes with caramel, alcohol. Green apples. Some oranges as well perhaps. Medium long aftertaste. A decent beer, but nothing more.

badhack (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
A very light beer, tastes of toasted malts, fairly well carbonated, some yeast and fruits, low hopped. A little sweet and dry. Not a bad drink to go with your meal.

rondphoto (2278) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2014
on tap @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear medium amber, white head cover, full curtain of lace. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus, appealing aroma and appearance. Taste is sweet malt that expands in the palate, adding light sweet citrus and a bit of alcohol warmth on the swallow before nudging toward bitterness in a long satisfying finish. Highly recommended.

330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Dead yeast, fruity, faint perfume in aroma. Dead yeast, grainy, dusty hops, dead grass in taste. Crisp mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Grassy hops in aftertaste.

fkoolen (359) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Hazy golden colour, big white foamy head. Sweet and grainy malts in the nose and taste along with spicy Belgian yeasts that also add some light sour tones. Reminiscent of Tripel Karmeliet. Good body, medium carbonation.
