A true Belgian, this rare treat boasts a magnificent whiff of yeasts and peppery spices along with a hearty presence of alcohol. Beautiful to look at, wonderful to smell and supremely good to drink. Quite reminiscent of Kasteel Blonde, a very good thing in my book. Excellent!

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2008
33cl bottle: Extremely brilliant and vibrant pure gold. Very large white head with a creamy mushroom top that continues to grow for several minutes after you pour. Carbonation release looks spritzy. "Typical" tripel aromas laced with a slight sea-shell aroma. Tons of table sugar, banana, touch of bubblegum, tart yellow fruits and light malt (pilsner malt). A definite "greenery" persists. Something that is slightly stale in the background. Perhaps some DMS in there too. Very lively carbonation cuts into the back of your throat a little. Hot alcohol and sweet middle. Very spicy yeast character, as well as dried spice, becomes a little harsh when forced through by the alcohol. A little hop character pops up here and there. Malty sweet finish with stale old hops and alcohol

JoeinDahlem (1347) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2008
Strong, sweet, relatively simple blonde ale. Affiliated with the excellent Oud Beersel brewery, which makes this one a head-scratcher. Pours bright golden with a big, frothy, white head. Nose of oranges, candy, yeast. Very sweet flavor with mild bitterness, some alcohol showing through, lively carbonation. Cloying. Unfortunate. I wish they were promoting their lambics half as hard as they’re pushing this one around town.

Keg (ZBF2008)
Looks good - rich amber, and a thin head. Goes quickly downhill after that. Alcoholic and unsubtle. Boozy.

harrisoni (14214) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2008
On tap at ZBF 08. Lovely clear gold colour with lasting ivory head. some lager malt on aroma, bit of toffee. Good condition. Doesn’t taste of 9.5% at all. Drinkable, just a little cardboardy. Oh and hilarious as the guy at the stand was so enthusiastic he explained the entire beer to me in Flemish before I told him I was English and didn’t understand a word.

Fin (7805) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2011 Had this at ZBF Sint Niklaas, Belgium, 02-03-08 Pours with great clarity and a rather wonderful golden colour with just a slim white head. This beer seems to work on a couple of levels with the spices sitting lazily in the mouth as though they haven’t been totally incorporated into the beer and the other level sees a nice beer, quite soft mouthfeel with just a hint of alcohol, sweetness and malt. A5 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.2 Had this again, purchased Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, Belgie 18.03.11 consumed 24.03.11 warm gold appearance with a little rustiness and a sunshine glow along with a white head. Some sweetness, cereal and a honey rush. Tasty and slips down well with a chunk of parmesan. A6 A3 T8 P4 Ov14 3.5

rauchbier (3637) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle, at ZBF 2006. Gold, good white head and moderate condition. Faintly malty nose, gentle sweet malt and a slight spiciness in the mouth tempered by a flowery but bitter yeastiness which lingers in the finish.
