33cl flesje via drankgigant.nl Alcoholpercentage van 5,5% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: amberkleurig, schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt Aroma en smaak: ijzertje, moutig, licht zuurtje Conclusie: speciale Belge ala De Konick, Palm. Niet mijn stijl bier. Echter deze ook nog vrij vlak van smaak, waterig. Kan me niet bekoren ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cristobal37 (355) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Really mystifying that Michael Jackson would include this in his 500 great beers book. Perhaps it wasn’t brewed by Bavik at the time.. What you get is an aromaless, nearly tasteless and watery brew. Refreshing with a dry bitter snap at the end, but overall very hollow. Plain and probably a reaction to American tourists wanting something blander and crappier when they visit Belgium. Skip it!

milewide (1726) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2015
$5.39 for 11.2 ounces...and at the bottom layer of Belgium ales. IMO, this brewery knows how to make world class brews...but chooses to pump out non Belgium quality beers!

vinivini (638) - BELARUS - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle. Amber liquid, Thin head of big bubbles, weak lacing. Nose of sugary grains, wine, grass. Sweet corny taste with notable grassy bitterness in ending. Light to medium body. Some emptiness in the middle. Hoppy aftertaste. Not free of some shortages nonetheless pleasant and solid beer.

suurjuust (1746) - ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2015
Clear orange beer, medium white head. Nose is malt, vague fruity notes, hint of hoppy freshness. Flavor has some mild Belgian characteristics, some malt, mild hops. Very drinkable and easily forgettable.
