Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized, vast, thick and slowly changing white head on top of a hazy bright yellow colored beer. The aroma’s or smell of this beer is pretty bad/strange: sweaty grains, light yeasty, baby poo, corn, sweat, wheat, hemp and a hint of paper. Taste wheat, corn, hint of hops, hint of spices, grains, bitter, hint of citrus and peach, hint of paper, hint of soap and herbs. Aftertaste is bitter with spices, herbs and grass and light dry. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture Decent beer, nothing spectacular but not bad either.

jbruner (4116) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of mild Belgian yeast, musty earth, and oxidation. Taste is like a big boozy Belgian lager that is oxidized. This is horrible, and Duvel fucked up not copyrighting the name in Belgium.

Ysok02 (1048) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2016
Robe blonde, mousse abondante. Nez simple sur des notes de farine, de levures, de houblon. Bouche tout aussi simple, légèrement fruitée, peu persistante. Banale

kaserov (225) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2016
Floja floja. Color amarillo ultra claro. Casi sidroso. Espuma que dura más bien poco. Sabor insulso. No apetece dar más de dos o tres tragos. Su único punto a favor es que apenas se notan los 8 grados.

Blond bier met grote witte schuimkraag. Geur: gistkarakter, brood, licht kruidig en ietwat citrus. Smaak: licht bitterig, kruidig, wat metaal en ietwat zoetig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Afdronk: licht zoetig en bitterig.

Olelko (24) - FRANCE - MAY 24, 2016
Strong beer with a heavy body, that takes a lot of your mouth. Charles Quint fears nothing and is shameless. Strong taste of caramel and cereal, but nothing surprising. The light "straw like" colour is OK but doesn’t give the beer any character. The worst aspect of all: it’s a soapish taste and foam, a bit disgusting.
