Ignite your passion with this unique multigrain beer. This golden ale is brewed in the typical belgian tradition and brewer's knowledge. The golden color radiates warmth and noblesse. The recipe is based on barley, oats and wheat. Historically the combination of these three grains has proven to be the ideal one. Coriander and spice are to be found in the nose. The smooth flavour is very well balanced and combines a slight acidity with a sweet body and a subtle bitter finish. Alcohol is 7į vol.

Bontus (759) - Flanders, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle, Den Brabander Tielrode. Pours chill hazy yellow with a clear white head. Coriander and lemon zest aroma nose, also some smell "from ít putjen". Wheat spruceness and freshness quite upfront. Good balance, good mouthfeel, a karmeliet light.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2010
Darker blond coloured beer with some average carbonation and a small white head (some small yeast parts). Special herby touched aroma with some havy yeasty hints. Full palate. Finish is full malty, yeasty sweet hinted with some bitter touched endings.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a foamy white head. And it gushed. Aroma suggests cooked brown sugar/caramel. Flavor is sweet, but itís also fruity and citrus. Thereís enough bitter and citrus to somewhat offset the sweet. Pretty drinkable Belgian.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2010
Pours out light yellow. Good white head. Holds ok. Smells sour, unpleasant, fruity, but really something unpleasant inside the aroma. Sweet fruity taste, feels a bit to much like soda, goes inside to quick, but itís drinkable. Lemon-cirtus, only lightly biterness.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Light brown hazy beer with flukes and a huge white unstable head that lasts. Laces well. Smell of roasted malts and light sweet. Taste is caramel, coffee at first, with roasted malts and light sweetness coming to the foreground afterwards. Some grains in the aftertaste. Nice beer, but a bit too average to my opinion in total.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Itís blond, itís Belgian, itís slightly yeasty, slightly fruity, slightly spicy. In other words a pretty standard Belgian blonde. Not much else to say. Nothing particularly wrong with it, just nothing to distinguish it from the crowd. Didnít realize it was multi-grain. Middle of the road.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeasty and sweet bready cara-malty aroma with notes of cookies, ripe citrus and coriander. Slightly sweet and acidic flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Malty and citrus-fruity taste with shy notes of cookies/biscuits and a moderate touch of coriander, which is getting stronger towards the fruity and slightly acidic finish. Okay. 15.I.10
