COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strandgaper is a real musselbeer. Its full, smooth malty flavor and refreshing bittersweet finish make it the ideal accompaniment to a mussel dish.

ads135 (3302) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Hazy golden yellow appearance with thick, though quickly disappearing white soapy head. Smells of citrus and yeast. Pepper and lemon flavor. Understated beer, perhaps a bit too understated.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
330ml bottle from Arden wines- good to see some Belgian interest on the shelves at last. Clouded apricot with a fine slim foam. Nose comprises various olfactory goodies; orange wine gums, bubblegum (mauby), parsley, coriander seed and cinnamon-dusted stewed apple. Good, typically Belgian, soft citrus taste with mildly peppery green leafy hints (watercress?, parsley) mingling with a base note of orangey Belgian hop. Nice.

jvhemert (345) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2012
AROMA: dough, spruce, citrus, vanilla APPEARANCE: pale, hazy, frothy TASTE: medium bitterness, lightly sour, PALATE: medium body, thick feel, lively, astringent, abrupt and thin finish OVERALL: well-crafted beer starts full bodied with interesting hops and yeast balance, finish lets it down really. (Have a bit of a cold.)

Parket (570) - Bruges, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2012
33cl bottle from drankencentrale rotsaert, yellow colour with foamy, stable and lacing white head. Smell: some yeasty notes. Taste: yeasty, citrus, some hoppy notes. Nothing special but also nothing wrong with it, just a simple blond beer like you find many of them. Easy drinking.

EithCubes (5195) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle 06/2013. Nose is sunny with Pilsner/Helles malt, a little dusty with straw and a healthy yeast component. Cloudy golden with a noisy bright white head. Thin light body is very dry with heavy yeast and disproportionate alcohol showing, but still very fresh and crisp tasting (i.e., refreshing). Very nice accompanying beer.

vipinvelp (2632) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2012
Unclear unfiltered darker yellow with white sticking foam the way I like it. Bitter blond with yeast taste, almost no CO2 appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1958) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2012
A cloudy, light yellow beer with a medium and white head. Aroma is (belgian)fruity, yeast, some lemon, herbs and dryness. Taste is slightly fruitfull and biscuity, quite dry and slightly biting herbs are highlighted in the aftertaste. Medium- bodied, fresh and nice carbonation enhanced freshness. Nice belgian ale, quite similar than La Trappe Puur.

berkshirejohn (4972) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2012
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Hazy amber with a ring of white head; sour, grainy aroma; smooth, buttery, malty flavour leading to a warming, butterscotch finish. Very satisfying.

thirstyrabbit (1320) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy yellow, medium head. Yeasty and lemony aroma. Dry taste with some melon and pineapple. Not as sweet or hoppy as the average Belgians - therefore it does not really hide its relatively low ABV too well. The bitterness seems to come from the alcohol instead of the hops.
