Bottle shared at Gainsbar - Kortrijk, Belgium. Pours lightly hazy, yellow-gold, quite effervescent with a thick, creamy white head. Lots of yeasty dough in the nose with notes of sugar fruits. Hugely sweet flavor with plenty of sugary white bread, dough, hay. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with more sugary, doughy white bread, fruits, white sugar, hay. Very sweet but OK overall.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy blond with decent white head. Beautifully sweet aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is just incredible. Beautifully smooth with a soothing sweetness & good tripel notes. Very nicely blended with very minimal bitterness or spice. I could happily polish off a 75cl bottle of this.

Beer from a hobby brewer from Diksmuide, commercialized through Deca. Sticky, snow white head, misty golden blond colour. Very fruity aroma, exotic fruits, apricot, pear, strawberry, rosewater, sherry, hay, whisky. Soft, apply, fruity taste, medium carbo, bready malt base, sourish touch, yeasty with mild grassy hop bitterness in the finish (fresh hop cones apparently having been used). Enjoyable.

The label looks modern, but the recipe is as old as the Belgian beer culture. Typical yeasty and fruity Belgian blond. Nice, but not special.
