RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2008
The cork comes off with a loud POP! It reads 2007. Pours a fully clouded orange with a nice off white head. Looks just beautiful. Nose is a consistent yeasty funk. Flavor is very nice. Very nice indeed. Nice full funk with a mild sugar tone that is not very visible. Mostly it is the yeast just dancing in your mouth. Very robust. Very hearty. Feel has a high carbonation that is almost a bit attacking on the tongue. Definitely worth trying.

fantti (680) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin 2,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksusta tulee mieleen melko paljon La Chouffe, samanlaista yrttisen ja mausteisen sitrusmaista tuntumaa löytyy. Mausteinen hiivaisuus etualalla, sitrus hieman taaempana. Korianterimaista yrttisyyttä tuntuu hiivan lomassa. Myös vehnäolutmaista banaaniesteriä löytyy tuoksuttelemalla. Maussa banaanimaiset ja sitrusmaiset vivahteet iskevät vahvimpana vastaan, pippurimaisen ja korianterisen mausteisuuden kutitellessa taustalla. Kukkainen humalointi ottaa lopussa suun valtaansa tukevoittaen makua. Suutuntuma on hyvin humaloitu ja samalla melko täyteläinen ja tukeva, jopa yllättävän tuhti. Hieno vaalea belgi, jossa samoja vivahteita kuin arvostamassani La Chouffessa ollen hieman napakammin humaloitu ja hivenen tuhdimpi tapaus. Vehnäolutmaisia aromeja on myös mukana, vaikkei vehnää ole käytetty. Hieno olut.

Chrishrt30 (97) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
Very pale straw colour with light thin white head. Strong citrus, candy and bread aroma, with a good strong hit of Belgium yeast. A nice heavy mouthfeel, champagne like carbonation. Sweet honey and citric, bubblegum, spicy herbs and cinnamon. A nice dry finish, fine light hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a hazy gold with foamy head and fresh floral aroma. Vibrant blond flavours, aromatic, floral, a touch of spice all impeccably blended with a teasing dry bitterness on the finish. A beautiful blond.

manuelMTL (32) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
A very good beer. A smooth drop. It reminds me of Brussels but should be in 1 l bottles. The logo is brand.

SimonTja (237) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2014
Crisp, light, but still quite bready, a lot of belgian yeast esters; bubblegum, citrus, very dry, easy going and nice - like a better Duvel.

raoulgreco (10) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2014
Bright gold, with attractive head. Extremely crisp, especially so considering the alcohol content. Clean balanced finish showing a little bit of farmhouse (acidic) bite. A great complement to cheeses.
