UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Onmiskenbaar fris en fruit in het aroma, doordrenkt met citrus, licht kruidige van hooi en basilicum. De smaak doet er niet voor onder met dezelfde tonen, maar de nasmaak is lichtbitter zonder breedte of diepte. Stijve doch bruisende kop op licht oranje. #2 aroma van zoete merengue. Smaak fris kruidig, heftig koolzuur. Rating hetzelfde.

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.

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.

fkoolen (342) - 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.

Draught. Dark golden yellow with medium foamy whitish head, malt-coriander aroma, low carbonation, sharp alcohol taste partially masked by hops flavor, long finish with alcohol aftertaste. Not bad but also not great

eduardovl (926) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in its own glass @ "Pinguin zem Bier-Huus": A very nice Beer house in Basel. A: Golden yellow color with a thick, fluffy and persistent head. A little bit cloudy and dirty too S: Belgian yeasts. Fresh malt. Sweet flowery perfume. Citrus and spices (reminds a Triple) T: Belgian yeasts, malt and spices. Moderate sweet M: Balanced sweetness, low bitterness and reasonable carbonation D: High. Despite the high ABV, you cannot feel too much the alcohol. Really easy to lose the head here...

MarkoNm (680) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color topped with lots of white frothy head. Malty aroma, notes of alcohol and yeasty smell. The taste is malty, yeasty with pretty strong alcohol taste. Very dry. Not my favourite really.
