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.

Lys gul klar med hvitt skum som legger seg fort. Malt, korn og lett fruktig. Lett, syrlig og alkoholsmak. Noe bitter i ettersmaken.

Pours in dark red body with low rose head. Aroma has syrupy cherry like sweetness with light candy character on the nose. Taste is loaded with cherry sweetness, almost no bitterness at all. Good summer limonade, very sugary. Body is full, light carbonation.

Clear blond colour. It is a typical creamy malty Belgian blond. Quite sweet with light bitterness in the finish.
