TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Slightly hazy and golden with a thick white head, good lacing. Bread and fruit aromas, pear, banana, a little bit of clove. Tastes slightly bready with some pear and grape sweetness from esters and a fruity, slightly spicy hop profile. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Iím confused by the low overal score of this beer. Itís a solid Belgian Pale with a weird label.

Malty aroma. Light sweetness and lighter bitterness. A poor version of Duvel. Better taste at low temperature.

Icedwarf (1006) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en lichtzoet, abrikoos en citrus met ietwat honing. Drinkt makkelijk weg.

Drank with Timon 25-11-2015. Tripel-like taste, also a sweet hint. Not a bad beer for this kind of thing.

beeebon (354) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Poured yellow with thick foamy head which quick went. Aroma is yeasty, slight honey, perfume and grassy. Taste reminded me of a lower quality version of Duvel. Certainly drinkable and nice to try but doubt I will be buying again.

7.5%. Belgian Strong Ale. Wet yeasty nose. Wet cement or wet clay. Lightly sour nose reminiscent of cider or apple vinegar. Lightly carbonated in the palate. Thick, malty sweet palate. This is cut by the alcohol more than hops, which are close to non-existent. Nice sweet malty flavors continue to bloom a little more after in the palate and the back of the throat developing some sweet tropical fruit complexity. Would still go with a Karmeliet if considering a tripel or a strong ale.

MelvinKalksma (463) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2015
Aroma: Citrus, honey, hop, yeast. Appearance: Golden colored beer with a persistent white foamy head. Taste/Palate: Starts with sweet honey and ends in bitter citrus. Not really deep. Overall: A decent beer, refreshing and without an alcohol taste.
