imdownthepub (12803) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Keg at Le Chopping, Lille, France. Gold with white head. Light, tinnish and quite sweet from the start, pretty bland really particularly for the strength. Few of the normal Belgian Ale attributes. Not for me.

Ysok02 (791) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2016
Robe blonde, mousse peu abondante. Nez malté, houblonné et fruité, assez simple. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, matière peu concentrée, finale légèrement amère. Une bière banale.

Metalchopz (3016) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Enjoyed at Todd English in Vegas. Pours a hazy light-golden colour with decent lacing. Apple aromas with hints of pear and honey. Belgian Ale yeast taste with pear notes and some nice grassy bitterness. An overall nice spicy fruity Belgian ale.

Bottle in Paris. Meh. A bit bland. Not much aroma. Mild honey aftertaste. A bit metallic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

darioklc (659) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 10, 2015
Pours clear straw big white head. Not much lace. Bigger volume malt, straw and light malt. Light body, good carb, fair balance. Bigger than seems. Good beer.

Erzengel (7324) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
*Fruchtig-alkoholisches Bier. Gar nicht mal so schlimm. Sehr mild für die 8.5%, kaum Tiefgang. Rund und süffig.

Not too bad but pretty typical. Lots of alcohol upfront and in the end with a tad bit of sweetness.
