Just 3 grains and 3 hops are transformed by a long maturation process to produce a full bodied slight amber beer with a refined balance of floral and citrus notes. Its thick creamy head and bitter aftertaste result in a seductive yet robust drinking experience.

Amberish beer with a normal head. A bit of a standard aroma. But i like spicy taste and the medium dry finish.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
330 ml bottle. Quite clear deep golden to amber body with a big, long lasting, frothy tan head. Mild and typical Belgium Brune in aroma, malt, caramel, brown sugar and some toast. Flavor is sweet and feels a bit dusty at the same time, malt, caramel, bread, spicy Belgium yeast and low bitterness. Medium but well balanced body, average aftertaste. At the first sips this beer seems to be very boring, no faults but nothing exiting going on either. On the other hand it’s very typical true to a not very exiting style, and with a good balance. This good balance might actually be the problem with this beer, no sharp edged and there seems to be many dozens of similar beers in Belgium from more than less unknown breweries, supermarket chains and other random beers. Nothing extraordinary here, but quite pleasant and easy to drink. Not too sweet either as this often seems to be the rule with this kind of beer.

It’s decent enough, with a full creamy mouthfeel and no obvious off elements, but the level of aromatic hops make it not quite a joy to drink

vincentvega72 (382) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Helder oranje bier. Redelijk zoet, licht moutig, aroma. Smaken van marsepein, caramel, appelsien. Zoetige afdronk die niet lang blijft hangen. Lekker tussendoortje. Niks meer, niks minder.

Clear dark golden body. Sweet ish but interesting aroma, cinnamon, marzipan, apple. Cookie spice taste too, quite a nice concept. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours coppery gold with a white head. Aroma is floral and yeast; maybe a touch of spice. Med body or better. Flavor is floral, yeast, slightly roasty malt, some light non-citrus fruit. Within limits it has me thinking Best Bitter. It has that floral lilt of many English ales. If Bud tasted like this, I’d probably drink Bud.

Ambrée claire, bullage fort, tourbillon dans le verre après versement. Mousse crémeuse et aérée, persistance moyenne. Nez discret, léger houblon floral et grains. Arômes peu présents : grain, levure et légèrement épicé (girofle). Présence houblonnée assez faible. Petit piquant à l’attaque, douceur moyenne qui révèle en fin de bouche une amertume moyenne et une astringence moyenne. Corps léger à moyen, plutôt aqueux. Bière belge levurée assez attendue, mais on pourrait attendre plus de caractère houblonné (dry hopping ?). Assez unidimensionnelle.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Belle bouteille de 33 cl. Liquide ambré, mousse claire peu persistante. Nez délicat : fruits ’orange), houblon, biscuit. Belle effervescence. Bouche : un peu piquante ; l’alcool et le sucre sont présents mais pas envahissants. Je retrouve l’orange, des épices (poivre), le houblon, une légère amertume. Une "authentic" de qualité bien équilibrée. Une bière à boire encore et encore ... mais avec modération ! :-)
