Bonne bière rafraîchissante mais manquant un peu de caractère et de longueur en bouche.

dEnk (4030) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle @ home. Aroma has loads of straw and hay, some sweet malty notes and a touch of metal. Flavour is very highly carbonated, creamy texture, some malty notes but overall quite dry. Decent brew but nothing special.

kraddel (3615) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2013
Another rate from memories . Kinda like a duvel ripoff ( realy , the brewerie themselves told me this is their try to be duvel ) You cannot compete with duvel , duvel is the only beer to be at any belgian bar ( seriously , ive never seen an exeption)and to try to change that , is prettty damn stupid of haacht . Especialie cause this tastes way less good Z. Extremely overcarbonated does not equal duvel !

jmgreenuk (4920) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2013
Courtesy of Deanso. Poured a cloudy light straw with a big frothy head. The aroma is yeasty but a little weak. The flavour is hugely floral and medicinal but not a flower or medicine that I like. I won’t be ordering another!

Bottle shared from Deanso. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, light malt, light caramel, light fruit. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

deanso (5685) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2013
33cl bottle from Alsem’s Thick whispey white head. Slightly hazy blond pour. An ok beer.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2013
Golden coloured beer with a fluffy white head. Citrus-like aroma, flavour is that of citrus soap quite watery. (Bottle 33cl)

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2013
75cl bottle. Cloudy yellow with aggressive white head that disappears quickly. Nose ; fresh fruit aromas of apricot, banana, citrus, zest, soap. Cheese cake. Sip : lots of carbonation, mouthful and not easy to swallow. Oily texture. Cloyingly sweet with notes of citrus and other fruits. Strong esters. Almost no bitterness. Far from what I call a nice beer.
