Floral, lavender, vanilla, fruity aroma has some light spicy notes. Clear, deep golden-blonde with a low but lasting white head that laces well. Floral, creamy flavour with pleasant fruity esters and spicy, herbal hop flavour. Decent balance between sweet malts and hop bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

On tap somewhere in France. Pours a cloudy lightish color. Very enjoyable and solid Belgian. I hope I’m rating the right one here because the menu just said "Floreffe" Whatever, they are all pretty close.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark golden, with a decent head. Loads of yest in the brew, and yeasty notes. But very sugary - overly sweet actually. But somehow still manages to be quenching. Somewhat anonymous - I miss something in here. 211296

sweet malt fruity aroma, but not to much. looks good in a chimay chalice. taste: yeast citrus and a bit of hops sweet and a little sour. mf is medium with good carbonation. finish is sourrish and a bit lingering. good session beer, i think.

Sweet, perhaps a bit too much so, but to drink one is a real joy, however I would have passed on a second one

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Bottle. Marcipan aroma, slightly acidic. Shiny golden colour and a big, creamy white semi-stable head. Bitter at first (not hop-bitter, but some strange bitterness which is not excactly nice). Sweetish semi-malty flavour with some sourness. Hint of mold.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Deep golden color with a large, foamy and pillowy, everlasting head. An acidic aroma of bisquits, banana and butter. Toffee-caramely, quite sweet and malty, yeasty flavor. Very smooth, although quite carbonated, medium-bodied and slicky-sweet palate. A nice and smooth, quite sweet blonde that somehow reminds me of Duvel. It’s not quite as balanced, though.
