Bue en bouteille 33cl. Malts bien présents, bel équilibre et longueur en bouche appréciable. Une bonne surprise qui reste une classique blonde belge.

Thick and yeasty. A bit harsh tasting. Overall not the best Belgian I’ve had, but a solid example.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Rich orange and hazy golden and light amber coloured body with a nice thick, three centimetre off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, curacao, bubble gum, yeast, malt, light hops and even more alcohol - nice and strong. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malt and wheat flavours with a large hay, grassy and alcohol bite and some good sugars coming through. Aftertaste shows hints of fruits with a little alcohol bitterness and some subdued hoppiness and a good malty backbone that lasts. Overall, a nice rich beer with some good bitterness, a lot of sweetness and perhaps even more alcohol bite at the end. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle as part of a Van Steenberge four pack sampler purchased from Harris Teeter in Arlington (Pentagon City) in late November 2013.

bonkiedeaap (238) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2013
Bought a bottle at the liqor store in Leerdam. The beer has a golden color with a large white head and has is perfectly carbonated. In the aroma tones malts, yeast, bananas and some fruits. In the taste sweet fruits and malts. A lot of bananas and is also a little alcoholic. The finish long and heavy with a light bitter. A pretty standard strong ale. I like the idea, but it’s a little too alcoholic.

Ferris (2874) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle - Sweet Belgium yeast and apricot. Cloudy gold and a rich white head. A little over carbonated, sweet yeast and booze. Brown sugar anda bit too sweet for my taste.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Takie sobie, slabsze w smaku od wersji mocniejszej. Bujna i trwala piana chlebowo-drozdzowy aromat oraz zlotawo metnawy kolor

Poured a hazy light amber colour with a thin long-lasting white head and lots of carbonation. It was like pouring a glass of sparkling water. The aroma is dry crisp and very yeasty. The flavour is medium bitter with a huge yeasty resinous palate. It was a fine beer and there was a time when I really would have enjoyed this, but I think it’s a style that I have simply grown out of.
