Brewmaster Koen de Cock selected the finest hops and malts. Via his special way of brewing, the brewery came up with the Sinpalsken.

Blonde dorée, effervescence forte, col blanc trop abondant. Principalement maltée, assez douce, mini amertume, mini fruité. Bof...

Trappist1 (427) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2013
Yellow, amber color, full good looking head. Nose: yeast, malty, syrupy and a bit spicy. Taste is alcoholic with a sweet finish, even a little bit spicy, peppery. Nice nose, but finish is a bit too alcoholic for me.

Benzai (7342) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle thanks to my uncle Ino. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, fruityness, slightly fruitpeel bitter. Pretty nice blond imo. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.

77ships (3604) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. It pours bright swirling amber with bubbles rising and a creamy, explosive white head that quickly commences to collapse as its big bubbles plop. Smells delightfully with prickling, white pepper esters and thin stretched out yet with lightly soapy citrus overtones coming to the foreground and light fruits. Taste is that of bitter esters and spices dominated by a spicy Belgian yeast string, rather simplistic in overt citrus tones and agreeable BE hops, this brew carries no flaws. Safe perhaps but enjoyable never the less and comes as a bit of a surprise to me. The body is peppery, light but a bit too effervescent with quite a lot of carbonation going on.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2012
(33cl bottle) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a tall dense off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, yeast, and minerals. Flavor of yeast, grass, and light fruitness.

Yves (2094) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2011
Clear goldblond coloured beer with large diminishing white head and lots of carbonation. Hoppy spicy aroma with an alcoholic touch. Full sparkling palate. Finish is hoppy bitter with a slight sweet touch with a dry ending.
