Pours cloudy, typical blonde, decent head. Nice table beer, buttery texture, well balanced but unexceptonal.

Hazy straw to light gold with a lively, fizzy head. Aroma is of light yeast and hops. Flavor is super-mellow for 8 abv, and yet it holds quite a complexity of yeast-related flavors. A slight fruitiness (apricot and berry), a slight yeastiness (baking bread), and slight phenols, all in balance. After a while, I realized the hop flavors, and especially the hop bitterness where a bit more strong than the other flavors, especially in the immediate aftertaste. It would be very difficult to find a flaw in this beer. If I had to, I’d say the bitterness was slightly harsh and could have been balanced by some of the yeast flavors if they had stuck around longer. The carbonation was not overwhelming despite the healthy pour. Light to medium bodied.

33cl bottle from the brewery. Light blond with some haze and a good head. Bright fruity aroma. Pear and clove. Light sweetness and good fruitiness in the flavor. Nice golden.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2010
Bottled (from bierplanet.eu). Goldeny orange colour with big foamy white head, that leaves lace. Aroma is bigtime yeast, alcohol, big fruityness as well as some slight grassy and caramelly and toffeeish notes. Flavour is caramel malts, quite a bunch of spices, some peas, mild yeasty and toffeeish notes.

Sample from bottle. Clear golden pour, large white head. Sweet malts, light banana, citrus, bread, and a bit of spicy herbalness. Decent beer, but does stand out too much.

heavy (2280) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 14, 2010
30/09 0.33 l at Hopdevil, Zagreb. I poured hazy orange body with medium sized head. Nice yeasty banana aroma, some orange as well. Sweetish yeasty flavor, slightly in bread and orange way, still a bit sharp, possibly of alcohol. Medium body with slightly metallic finish. Fine enough, though there are better Belgian beers around.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2010
(Bottled) Pale golden, agressively foamy, lacy, generates some clouds. Not much aroma here, some papery dullness. Flavor is honey-pale-malty-fruity like Duvel - maybe even slightly less acidic, with sourish-wheaty notes and lemon. Medium body, quite foamy. Has some caramely notes, not as dry as Duvel. Good, but not outstanding. 4345

11.2oz bottle / BBD: 30/07/12. Poured a almost opaque brownish straw with a thin head that stays until the end. Aroma: a strong yeast, spice, citrus, banana, fruit mix dominates, some thing almost like glue at times, notes of alcohol. Taste: yeast, fruit, spice, mild alcohol; also some water. Medium body. Finish carried out the taste but with a mild alcohol warmth. Overall a good beer - I can’t say I would buy another due to the overtones of glue.

Rating #424, bottle, gift from Mia

A very pale hazy yellow beer with a huge but airy head. Lacings when drinked. Aroma is malts, yeast, flowery hops, a bit alcohol. Nothing special and not typical belgian aroma. Flavor is peach, sourishness, banana notes, even chocolaty notes in spite of the light colour. Sugary finish with good bitterness and ends on a bit alcohol and slightly wood. Taste is really a surprise compared to the aroma and appearance. A bit thin but soft beer, edgy alcohol that dots on the tongue.
