Bontus (648) - Flanders, - JUN 23, 2012
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

Belle robe or, belle mousse. Nez complexe sur des notes florales, fruitées, légèrement maltées et houblonnées sur un fond de banane verte. Bouche à l’attaque légèrement amère et citronnée, belle structure élégante avec une finale fruitée sur une fine amertume. Une belle bière de soif, ultra raffraîchissante.

This is a very refreshing beer, made after a long-forgotten recipe ; it’s the beer of the poor people of Antwerp about a century ago but again very popular nowadays

Rob_D_UK (1041) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Poured this into a Trappist glass in a car park in Belgium to enjoy with lunch as it was all I had to hand. Golden pour with a white head, classic yeasty smell with a touch of hops, balanced taste.

Beachmaster (186) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange\yellow with a medium white head that quickly fades. Nose is citrus and yeast. Taste is lemon notes and Belgian yeast notes of clove, but slightly grassy. Not bad, but not great. A good session beer.

kermis (5871) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, herbs, light fruit and and unexpected light Brett funky note which I’m sure shouldn’t be there but actually is quite pleasant. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.

corkyrory66 (743) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2014
Bière blonde refermentée composée de 4 céréales (orge, blé, avoine, sarrasin) et de houblons belges. Niveau abv de 6,5 %. Vieille recette anversoise. Couleur blond doré clair brillant . Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout en belles vagues. Mousse blanche épaisse qui tombe assez vite, nappage fin ensuite, plus rien en finale … Arômes de malt clair, houblon amer, cuberdon, fleur d’agave. 1ère bouche soyeuse pétillante, plutôt sur les fruits blancs, avec un bonbon acidulé. Arrière-bouche maltée et fleurie, sarrasin. 2ème sur le malt clair, avec un côté étranglé du goût. Arrière-bouche pas très précise, sans ampleur. 3ème sur malt et houblon, mais sans réel équilibre. Arrière-bouche plutôt de spéciale. La longueur ne donne pas de décollage. Juste des saveurs disparates. Jambes totalement lisses. Levure basique, un peu salée. Alcool correct pour une blonde de base. La finale passe inaperçue ...(!!!!). CONCLUSION du très basique, qui ne mérite aucun WBA ou autre World Beer Cup en or, comme indiqué sur l’étiquette… D’ailleurs le bonhomme de l’étiquette la boit dans un verre droit !!!!

Nate (3792) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014
On tap at Rattle N Hum. Mild funk note, dusty and a little leathery. Mild hop bouquet, bit of wheat and honey. Cloudy light amber with thin lacing white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Stats moderately sweet with wheat, light dusty notes, leather. Decent hop character but not bitter. Watery mild finish with herbal after.

11.2 oz bottle poured into glass. Great fruity aroma with a gokden yellow pour. Great frothy head to it. Tastes of yeast and slight fruit. Great beer, but better options at the price point.

- Alcoholpercentage van 6,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
