erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 4, 2014
Golden body, clean and large head. Too clear but good looks still. Grainy, residual sugars, alcohol, herbal. Pretty poor. Unnecessary alcohol. It’s okay on terms of taste, very boring but drinks well and not the heat any more. Bad aroma, okay after all. (33cl bottle from Christmas gift pack at Auchan Tours)

Blonde belgian triple. Great aroma, pearly, acidic "winy" taste, nice colour but lots of "sediment" floating around in the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A golden and hazy beer with a big, dense and blond head. The nose is fresh and nice, some fruits, lemon, some dryer grain and spices. Taste is slightly fruitfull, lemon and some tartness. The end is witbier like with lemon and spices. Medium bodied, lots of carbonation, fresh to drink and this fitts nicely to this fresh characteric. A succesfully beer, fresh and easy.
