Trübes hellorange, langer weißer Schaum. Hefig nach Soja und leichte Fruchtnoten nach Zitrus und frischem Gras. Malzigsüss im Antrunk, gefolgt von leichter Bittere. Mittelvoll, ziemlich Co2, keine Säure. Bitter bleibt zum Schluss, Testsüsse kommt dazu, Caramell und fruchtig und Gras. Besser als erwartet.

Bottle. Slightly murky honey color, lasting foam head. Aroma is a nice sour bouquet of lemon, hint of pine, hint of cheese, fresh cut grass. Reminds a bit of Karmeliet. Taste is sour (lemon, lemon candies, grass, hay) but develops a sweet tone (cherry?), bitter-dry aftertaste. Ok.

cmc619 (489) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Quintessential Belgian blonde ale. Easy to drink and not too boozy which is a welcome change of pace in the land of high-gravity beer. Had this after a quick stop at the abbey at the Maredsous cafe down the hill. Great pairing for some country cooking (Maredsous cheese, celery soup, pumpkin quiche, and of course a croque monsieur).

thmsboyd (67) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle BBE: 09/2016. Chilled. A pillowy, tight white head atop a cloudy golden body. Aromas of wheat, candied banana and vanilla. Sweet and floral. No significant sourness to taste, but a light sweetness and a moderate bitterness. Balanced, crisp and refreshing. Light-to-medium body, with high carbonation and a foamy texture. Short-medium finish. Overall a very good representation of a relatively no-frills style

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 22, 2015
Âmbar clara, boa espuma, turva. Aroma da levedura de frutas amarelas, banana, maçã, mel, noz moscada. Corpo médio. Na boca ela é adocicada, o que persiste no aftertaste assim como álcool.

fantti (763) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2015
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on noin kolmen sormen paksuinen ja hieman höttöinen. Tuoksu on taattua belgiä: mausteista hiivaisuutta ja sitruunaisuutta. Alta puskee esiin marjapensaisuus ja ruohoisuus. Maussa vahvana on alkuun sitruuna, jonka jälkeen heti tulee pippurinen mausteisuus. Hiven on sellaista marjapensaan tai omenapuun makuakin joukossa, mutta heikompana. Suutuntuma on hyvin pirskahtelevan hiilihappoinen kuivattaen sitä. Humalointi on lievää. Hyvä ja raikas vaalea belgi, jossa hiivan mausteisuus on vahvassa osassa yhdessä sitruunan kanssa. Aika simppeli ja suoraviivainen, mutta todella hyvin tehty.

Marstonlad (525) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big, frothy white head. The aroma features fresh, light fruitiness, some Belgian-style yeastiness and sweetish maltiness. Taste is light to medium sweet, displaying something from both malts and yeast. Flavours include grainy maltiness, fruity notes such as apple and some earthy yeasty notes also. The palate is medium to full bodied, very round and smooth; the carbonation is lively. Quite good flavours, the palate is surprisingly full bodied and high in carbonation.
