This is a blond sweet beer with a taste of bananas. This sweet flavor hides the strong 8 % alcohol content of the beer. It is a slightly hazy beer. There is a little spiciness in the beer, but it is not to bitter. A strong body.

Leighton (17460) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
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.

minutemat (3737) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
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.

Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
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.

SimonBeer (113) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
(Drinking date: 19 August 2014) Aromas of banana, malt and a bit of alcohol. Looks good. Hazy, golden beer. Really delicious fresh, fruity taste, with the softness of banana. Medium carbonation, which is exactly good. Good balance between watery and silky body. Delicious beer! Total score: 4.0

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.

vipinvelp (3530) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Somewhat opaque darker yellow with white foam head. Aroma is strong barley, little wheat. Decent taste, a Belgian Ale worthy, high alcohol. (Kemmel 201407)
