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 (743) - 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 (485) - 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.

Une classique, bière belge de type abbaye avec une légère amertume. La robe est blond-ambré avec une mousse agréable.

Andy_ (799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle
Golden orange beer with big cloudy white head. Clear without yeast, murky with it. Aroma has peary Belgian yeast, crisp apple, honeyish sweetness and light grassiness. Flavor is yeasty, fruity and herbal. Pouring in the yeast adds hefeweizenish banana sweetness to both aroma and flavor. Palate is thicker than medium full with high carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste is creamy sweet and malty with some crisp apple and some herbs. A bit metallic when cold. Some feel of alcohol. OK, but nothing special.

bewyder (156) - FRANCE - JAN 13, 2015
Une blonde assez simple, corps assez léger, une finale douce petite amertume mais arômes en retenue, manque à s’affirmer. Agréable. Bouteille bue dans un Léon de Bruxelles.

An okay and easy to drink and refreshing Belgian ale that unfortunately lacks that little extra.

Turboninja (110) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Medium aroma with sweet cereal, some banana and yeast. Yellow/dark yellow color with hazy liquid and medium/light head. Medium/strong taste with banana, sweet cereal, some malts and a bit yeasty notes. Balanced with wide/medium taste spectrum. long, yeasty and a bit hoppy aftertaste with cereal and banana. Light/medium palate with medium carbonation. Overall very nice, textbook-like BA, though missing some own character.
