turbothy (1055) - Bonn, - OCT 28, 2012
Stubby bottle labelled "Cuvée van de Generaal" bought home from the pub in Hoegaarden. Pours medium amber with a smallish head. Quite a lot of suspended sediment in the beer, making it less visually impressive than expected/hoped. Fresh, almost grassy aroma. Taste is fairly simple and the alcohol is very present. Not the most balanced or interesting Belgian ale I’ve had.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with decent off white head. Aroma of syrup, honey, dates, figs and alcohol. Flavour is sweet with warm alcohol notes and a well balanced bitterness in the finish.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2013
Blonde dorée, pétillance moyenne, mousse blanche nuageuse abondante. Malts céréales bien tassés d’entrée lentement suivis par une amertume à la fois houblonnée et fruitée avec quelques notes d’épices. Excellent!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt, wheat and oranges. The flavor is similar with a lot of grain, wheat and bread notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
