WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color. Thick foamy head. Flavor is initially very fruity and lively, middle is mellow bread and yeast, fades into a candi sugar mild hop finish. Sweet and lively on the palate. Lots of residual sugars. Quite tasty.

Mooi goudblond bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Ietwat muffig aroma met smaken van geel fruit, beetje banaan, peer, appel. Redelijk zoetig, weinig bittere afdronk. Doet me beetje denken aan een bier van 20 jaar geleden als je het vergelijkt met de huidige innovatieve bieren maar blijft een leuke klassieker.

Gangstergafje (666) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
The beer has a nice but simple look. The color of he beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer is rather clear. On top of the beer a nice layer of white foam is formed. The smell is nice. It has array fresh fruity hop aroma. It’s way more hoppy than most Belgian ales. The beer smells of citrus fruits and zest. There is a mellow sweet malt aroma. The balance is lovely. I like this fruitiness and freshness in a beer. The taste is great. I taste a lovely bitter base of hops, giving the beer a fruity richness. Lovely. I also taste a strong yeast flavor, familiar from the Belgian beers. I love it. A Belgian ale with a lovely hoppy twist.

Mooi goudkleurig bier. Sterk fruitige aroma’s echter de smaak valt toch tegen. Helaas geen Belgisch top bier.

Shark_Pants (596) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with very voluminous and persistent frothy white head and cascading bubbles. The aroma has plenty of clove and pear with perhaps a little banana. The taste has a grainy maltiness, distinct pear, clove, firm spicy bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Pretty decent.

Muggus69 (2035) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 30/11/2017 Hazy blonde body, good sized white head. Good spicy aroma - clove, black pepper, nutmeg, cereal maltiness, ripe pear & amyl acetate esters. Body has a lively, creamy sort of carbonation, full but there’s enough dryness to cut through to avoid it being overly rich or sweet. Pepper body. Sweet pale malts, pepper & clove & apricot & pear skin. Mild bitterness, drying finish. Reasonable Belgian blonde - devilishly easy drinking

zacgillbanks (4376) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Bright golden coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a sweet fruity and slight floral flavour followed by an earthy, herbal warming finish. Ok.

danlo (2472) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine shop, Darlington. Golden colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of banana, meringue, fruity, yeasty. Taste is grain, fruity & yeasty, sweetish, with a banana note, plus a little spice and some booze. Foamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry earthy boozy finish. Nicely drinkable.

pityu (620) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle - Hazy deep golden colour, medium whithe head, good retention. Typical belgian ale aromas, some fruity esters, yeast, no hops. Taste is also typical belgian, quite boring. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a bit watery texture, yeasty finish. Not bad, just boring.

mcberko (13894) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle at PIB 2016, pours a hazy dull yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out lots of Belgian yeast upfront, with lots of bubblegum and dry crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with bubblegum and Belgian yeast in good harmony. Not overly complex but it works well.
