Aroma a bananas y maltas húmedas. Apariencia palida pero turbia, abundante espuma blancany buena huella TÍpico sabor del tipo, acaso particularmente dulce, medio amargor, mas de Lupulo. Sólido y seco paladar al inicio. Suave y acuosa hacia el final.

kidmartinek (3536) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden with 65% foamy, frothy, white head. Aroma is first fruity, then eathy and yeasty. Head is sticky and foamy, big and white. I love how the rest of beer comes in these 330ml bottle instead of 250ml like in the U.S. a 20ml discount. You’re welcome. Swirling and pouring the foam into the "pint" glass shows large particles of brown sediment in suspension and increase the haze to a deep cloudiness. The taste is mineral with substantial bitterness, followed by bittersweet fruit peel in the finish. Mildly bland taste and finish, and too boring to continue. Gotta love a Catholic beer named after the Devil in the name of money! Cheers!

aleksander9 (369) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
Hazy pale color with nice white head. Aroma is spicy belgian yeast, caramel, and some alcohol. Round mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste ia floral hop bitterness, lemon, spice, caramel and lasting alcohol finish. Overall: nice. Maybe a little boring and alcoholic.

b33r (668) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Pale yellow color with huge fluffy white head that lasts forever and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has light hops with strong spicy yeastiness and some sweet bubblegum. Flavor has strong spicy Belgian yeasts with mild malt. Pretty good overall, but pricey.

Nice little belgian. Pours a nice golden color with a floral noise. Little pricy but good.

JulienHuxley (2935) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
750 ml bottle, as Bierhandel Willems "Zulig Kerstfeest & Gelukkig Nieuwjaar". Clear blonde pour with white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is peppery, light metallic notes, very light banana, light clove. Taste is sweet, spicy, yeasty flavor, clove on the finish, slightly boozy finish, lingering aftertaste. Palate is light, quite dry, highly carbed. Strong fizzy yellow beer.

pras (428) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Light yellow, biscuit, bubblegum, and belgian yeast on the nose. Rather thin mouthfeel. Light hop bitterness. Not one of my favorites.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Ale Alpharetta December Meeting. Quite bizarre that I have not had anything from this brewery yet. Golden pour. Getting a heavy dose of biscuity malt, grass, little spicy, lemons. Just ok.
