Great Belgian blonde, enough hop bitterness intertwined with the easterly Belgian yeast a well balanced brew. Pick up citrus late in the palate, lovely brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (641) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Palish yellow color with large pored foam. The smell is citrusy fresh and quite crisp. The taste is hoppy bitter and also crisp and fresh but it is combined with a Belgian yeast that add a surprising well fitting note. Fresh aftertaste

Golden color with big head. Spicy floral perfumy hops, spicy yeasts, quite peppery. Dry and spicy, typical belgian. High carbonation.

Wanderings878 (53) - ITALY - JUN 9, 2015
Bottiglia. Giallo pallido, schiuma cremosa molto abbondante. Aroma di malto, floreale, classico lievito belga. Leggero sentore di miele e floreale. Gusto dove emerge il malto, con una certa persistenza erbacea/amara data dal luppolo. Carbonatazione media. Tra le belghe, una di quelle che meno mi esalta.

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle from Auchan market, Luxembourg City!
Pours golden yellow with a high white head. Aroma is spicy and flowery hoppy. Taste is very spicy, perfumey, with belgian yeast and some floral hops. Goes into a perfumey, yeasty and strong floral-herbal finish!

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Dorada clara miel. Dos dedos de espuma ligera y efervescente que desaparece rápido. Aroma diferente, a vino tinto. Sabor inicialmente dulce y malteado, que luego marca mas los aspectos florales y evoluciona en amargor, manteniendo el tono de vino del aroma. Extraña.

TXBadger (1924) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with plenty of white head. Floral notes, some sweet notes like honey, and cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweet malt and floral flavors.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Hazed golden color with a tall white head. A few chunks of lace as the head diminishes to a still rather sizeable hill of foam. Aromas of fresh ground malt, honey and mild wild flowers. Reminds me of a few German lagers out there. I also catch a faint hint of smoke. Light and airy palate. Lightly sweet with some clover honey, floral hops and lightly sweet and toasted grains in the background. An herbal bitterness in the background. Hints of alcohol. Some blonde and triple qualities, but missing some of the finer point of each.

Neptune (36) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Tasted in Brugge. Aroma is predominantly malty and floral. The taste is dominated by alcohol and strange grassy bitterness. Not my favourite beer.

Gaultier (936) - SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2015
@ Hotel Van Belle, Brussels 14/5-15. Bottle from local minimarket. Yeasty and spicy/phenolic. Body is medium, the finish is dry and spicy.

"Belgian Strong Ale", ça ne veut rien dire... On a ici une belle bière avec un corps très cerealier sans être trop sucré. On observe ensuite une belle transition plutôt amere qui porte un léger houblon. Ce dernier assure une belle longueur extrêmement bien équilibrée qu’on regrette de ne pas trouver telle quel dans la bière. À ceux qui craignent les IPA mais qui ont un (léger) penchant pour l’amertume du malt.
