VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown to yellow landscape. Large creamy white head, good retention. Good lacing. Fruity aroma (lemon), cereal, biscuit, herbs. Medium sugary and alcoholic sweet balanced with medium dry bitter refreshing. Medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, herbal bitter finish, warming note. Overall, a good belgian beer : delicious aroma, good bitterness, silky texture. Evil...

Aroma and flavor (after they geyser subsides) dominated by yeast, fruit and nuts. not unpleasant, but not a favorite of mine. With a little too much carbonation, and alcohol showing, methinks this one is a tad bit overrated."

BrewBoxer (2141) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft at cedar local NYC. Surprised to see this on tap. Blonde cloudy color with a thick head that fades. Boozy, bready and yeasty . The chilled glass killed the flavor

Aroma reminds me of Prague. Lovely example of the style. Dry and not to strong. Essay drinking.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
The new and refreshed Anker interpretation of this Riva classic. Off-white, coarse, thick head and pale golden blonde colour with greenish hue, clear with steady sparkling. Malty aroma with green apple, thyme, cream, whisky; mineral water taste in the onset, then a restrained apply fruitiness, bit granular but otherwise smooth mouthfeel, honeyish malt sweetishness in the middle, finish mildly but spicy hop bitter with some warming gin-like alcohol. Surprisingly light and drinkable for its strength and significantly improved compared with the old Riva version.

gschrade (777) - Collinsville, USA - SEP 2, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, belgian yeast, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pkbites (695) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Cloudy pour. Slight citrus and bread nose. Flavor is light, hint of orange and lemon with bread crust. White head lasts and laces. High alcohol content is not detected. Not too shabby. An American malt liquor would burn and taste medicinal. This isn’t bad at all! Can.

SlimHabib (233) - California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with a large white foamy head. Strong wheat, bread, and banana aroma. Medium body. Bread, yeast, wheat, and alcohol taste. Bitter throughout most of the taste.
