Blond orange with a little cloud. Finger of white dense head. Nose of malt a little bubble-gum an some bitter hops. Malty up front, bitter hops, surprising honey sweetness on the finish. Feels like it’s missing the whole yeast profile that makes Belgian beers great. Alright beer but...

Bottle. Pours clear light with fizzy white head. Aroma is honey, floral notes, light cereal and toast, and some apple. Flavor is dry and sweet; mostly honey, pear, and floral esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

From a bottle. Pours clear light gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like raisin, grapes, pears, honey, pretty sweet with light dryness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dry honey, cracker malt, pear and grapes.

Birra particolare, con tanti sapori mischiati insieme (e non sempre in maniera armoniosa). Si percepiscono il fruttato, l’acidulo e l’amaro. Da abbinare decisamente col pesce.

When you play Kubb World Cup it is allowed to drink, and I thought this would kill off my opponent. After reading about the beer before pouring it out, I planned to give him most of it. That did not happened. Ehhh what a pleasant surprise. Lovely golden color with a fine white head. Nice pleasant fruity and mild banana in the nose. No horrible rice sweetness and no alcohol….ehh wrong beer? Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Lovely smooth and tasty flavor. Malty, fruity and some banana. Well it is from a can so the content cannot have been changed. A really lovely and tasty Belgian Strong Ale. Recomendable!

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2015 Une pauvre bière de supermarché qui ne sert à rien, si ce n’est enivrer à outrance les étudiants peu exigeants (qui se lasseront vite...) La Rince Cochon (c’est quoi ce nom ?...) n’est pas une bière, c’est un produit, avec un cahier des charges bien strict : on fait comme la Karmeliet parce que la Karmeliet, bah ça marche bien. Niveau marketing donc ok, mais c’est franchement pas terrible comme bière, voir même mauvais.

Bottle pour. Hazy pale golden with a large white head that fades quickly for the style. Wheat malt aroma with slightly sweet fruit aroma. Smooth silky palate. Wheat and cherry taste that quickly progresses to a strong long lasting hoppy bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. From some unkown grocery store in Paris. Cloudy pour and wheaty/banana aroma. The alcohol content probably saves the day if you are a drunk like........me. Otherwise I recommend you avoid this!

Bottle. Pale golden. Belgy ale yeasty, pale malty. Buttery body, some esters. The label is one of the nicest I’ve seen, but I’m not that fond of the flavour. But that’s probl as I’m not a big fan of belgy blonds. Flavourful tho. Not shit.
