tderoeck (4448) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2014
4/III/14 - 33cl bottle @ home -BB: IV/2015 (2014-244) Thanks to Dominique for the bottle!

Little cloudy dark blond to orange beer, creamy irregular off-white head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: fruity, citric, some banana, strawberry jam, bit sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: soft bitterness, bit lemony, sweet and malty, some caramel, bit sourish, fruity. Aftertaste: very fruity, bit sweet, lemony, nice hoppiness, good bitter ending. Good hoppy stuff! This Wallonian is not disappointing at all!

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2012
draft @ Marché des Produits Luxembourgeois, 19/09/2012. Dorée/orangée sur un léger trouble, col épais blanc. Arôme est malté, léger avec un beau profile houblonné entre Fuggle et Challenger, le tout sur un léger bouquet fruité alternant entre citronné et fruité frais. Palais est sec voire légèrement farineux avec une belle présence de grains. Effervescence agréable, malt caramel-pâle, le houblon est bien placé avec des notes fruitées/citronnées et une brève pointe fleuri. Le fini est sur un houblonnage à cru. Belle découverte avec, je suis certain, une influence certaine de St Hélène.

JorisPPattyn (7817) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2011
Very carbonated beer with UFO’s and completely fine-bubbled to towering, frothy off-white head, amazingly stable. Malty, pale malts balanced by dry-spicy hops. Gardenherbs and quite grassy - nice. Powerful ànd delicate. Sharpish, bitterish and very spicy flavour; grains, dusty hops and herbs. Grassy again, but more dominated by the other flavours than in the nose. Farmyard - saison-like. After some time, something smokey creeps in. Very spritzy, lightish, but quite grist-slick body. Excellent, in fact!

This one wasn’t very special. It’s an okay Belgian Ale. Pretty average. Balanced.
