Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
33cl bottle @ home. Light hazy golden blond coloured beer with medium strong carbonation and a large dense white head. Rather grassy citrusy fruity hoppy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is refreshing hoppy bitter with a longer bitter dry slight yeasty ending. Decent rather general strong ale.

Tmoney99 (13068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex balanced & yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex beer.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange body, with a huge white head that diminishes failry quickly, leaving a rocky mass in the middle, until I finish my glass. Classic belgian yeasty aroma, not much to go on here. Nice medium bitter taste, although, when the beer warms up, it becomes rather watery. Excessive carbonation level, watery texture, medium body. A fairly decent beer, nothing special, but has the basics.

ccex (1176) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2013
750 ml bottle pours a hazy light golden color with huge frothy white head and decent lacing. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast. bananas, and cloves with touches of floral hops and lemon. Taste is initially sweet with a dry finish. There’s funky acidic aftertaste until it warms up. Body is medium with very active carbonation. Good, but I’ve tried much better in this style, including some from Canada or the U.S.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2013
11.2oz bottle, from Party Source. Lot: 17/11/11. Totally hazy white / yellow color. Good big white head, thin bit retains, leaves decent lace. Bigger body. Soft, smooth carbonation. More dry overall. Lemon, floral hop flavor. Sweet, floral, zesty taste. Light bite in the finish. Not too much belgian yeast. Light banana. Cornbread. Lightly spicy (peppercorn, others). Some lightly acidic funk. Bright, citrusy belgian-strong. Pretty nice flavor.

Sten (726) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2013
Golden coloured beer with a white head. Sweet alcoholic aroma. Sweet and watery taste with a strong malty aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

Jimmythespoon (472) - - MAR 3, 2013
Pours golden yellow. One of the better belgian golden ales, slightly more yeasty aroma. Good solid belgian ale, but the style unfortunately doesn’t have much to offer.

unclemike (2832) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 28, 2013
can Pours a mostly clear yellow, very foamy and active head. The aroma is musty yeast and bosc pear. The taste is fruity with notes of apples, pears, and stone fruit. Sweet underneath. Has some spiciness too - stale white pepper and coriander. The finish is slightly bitter

solidfunk (6841) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Smell has bubblegum, some floral hops. Banana, clove and booze. Pours pale blonde, some lacing. A little booze. Leaves sour and sweet with the booze. Carbonation a little below average and booze a bit heavy. On tap at Taberna Lupulo.
