Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 Bottle bought in Belgium. 250ml, served in a Petrus glass. Golden, fluffy white head and low carbonation. Malty, hoppy ale thats like a pale bitter. (2.7) Rerate: The quintessential lacklustre Belgian ale. Argh! (1.7)

PawelD (291) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Butelka. W aromacie estry, lekka końska derka. Kolor miedziany bardzo klarowny, nagazowanie mocne, piany brak, niski ring wzdłuż ścian szkła. W smaku wodniste, słodowe, goryczki chmielowej brak. Nuda z przeciętnością.

Very weak aroma, A little bit of fruits, malt and some H2S. Nice color (dark golden), minimal head, clear. Light sweetness, very low bitterness, medium sour. Some fruits and ferrite ions. Overall - not tragic but I’ve had better. Kiepski zapach - lekko owocowy, lekka kanaliza. Piany brak. Barwa ładna, złocista. W smaku lekki kwasek cytrusowy, lekkie owoce, troszkę słodów i utlenienia, minimalna goryczka. Słabo ogólnie to piwo wypaa.

mariuszek (241) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Golden with medium head. Aroma quite lagerish, taste malty, some fruity notes and herbs. Medium high body, refreshing and drinkable.

MikaLukanainen (88) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Pours clear yellow with a small, unstable head. Lagerish aroma of straw, some honey. Nothing more in taste, rather medium sweet with a hint of acidity, though the bitterness is quite allright. Not being repulsive, the beer is strangely close to lager with no carbonation, which makes it rather a bad choice.

peponi (568) - Krakow, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Aroma: green apple, esters, herbs, honey. Appearance: clear golden color, thin white head. Taste: low bitterness (herbs), strangely acid, malty, roasted dark malts, wet socks. Palate: medium body and low carbonation, herbal finish. Overall: Quite strange stuff, something like pils without carbonation and some roasted notes.

CaptainTilven (34) - FRANCE - MAR 20, 2015
Amber colour; white foam that fades rapidly and remains even. Smells of orange, caramel, prune, malt, and also brioche. Tastes at first fruity, lightly sour; final bitterness very present. Quite pleasant.

thirstyrabbit (1276) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Amber body, medium head. Grainy and caramelly aroma. Average malty taste with a bready finish. Simple table beer, pretty drinkable but not exciting.

Lilja (1894) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En relativt torr närmast pilsnerliknande belgare som inte har den typiska belgo-jästkaraktärren. Lätt, torr, stram, medelstor beska, liten fruktighet med päron övererst, lite marspan och mandelskal och mjuka brödiga smaker. Trevlig och lättdrucken matöl.
