Almost no aroma. Very light color makes this look like a us domestic. Great taste however and strong carbonation make this a refreshing Belgian blonde.

bunget (769) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
750ml bottle. Clear golden body, big white head. Aroma of hay, boiled eggs, chloride, wet cardboard. Taste of grains, alcohol, mineral water with metallic aftertaste. Intense carbonation. No thank you!

artemb (461) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: harsh grassy hops, wet grains, wet bread. Taste: sweet, with harsh hop bitterness. Flavour: has malts, alcohol, light wet paper notes. Sweet malty and slightly oily aftertaste. Overall this is more strong lager, than strong ale. Clean, malt sweetenes, but to harsh.

dnicolaescu (1671) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL. Smells like a full-bodied german hoppy lager - lemony and grassy hops, honeyish sweetness and some sulfur. Tastes like a lager too - malt sweetness, German hops, so sulfur and a light acidity. Not bad.

Dorwart (2496) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Very large bright white head of medium to large bubbles with great carbonation. Light aroma with lemon, straw, dried flowers and some grains. Color is a medium gold with great clarity. More lemon and earth in the flavor. Light and crisp and easy drinking apart from the substantial carbonation. Rice, straw and a light bitterness late swallow. A decent golden belgian. A little light on body but still hides its alcohol pretty well.

eduardovl (1283) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2015
750ml bottle served in a chalice glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color forming a huge creamy and fizzy white head when poured. Good retention and tons of persistent soapy lacings formed and left in the glass. Classic Belgian Strong Ale. Reminds Duvel, for instance. S: Aroma is also classic Belgian Strong Ale. Very bready, sweet and fruity. Notes of apple and pear, honey, sweet pale malts and grassy and bit citrus hops. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of sweet pale malts, apple, pear and sweet bread. Grassy and a bit citrus hops profile. Good bittersweet balance. Nice bitter finish. M: Heavy body. Good carbonation. Bready bittersweet aftertaste. O: Good drinkability. Nice ale. Strong Belgian character.
