Blonde natur-ale, comme dit le brasseur, avec du houblon belge. Niveau abv de 7 %. Couleur blond moyen, avec un très léger voile. Bulles en fontaine centrale de milliers d’unités, magnifique. Mousse blanche épaisse, avec texture bob (blanc d’œuf battu) en haut, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt clair, herbes des prés, trèfle, avoine, épeautre. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec malt et houblon fin intimement liés, comme à la parade. Arrière-bouche fine, mais bien maltée. 2ème qui poursuit valeureusement la présentation des malts très fins. Arrière-bouche douce, fine, longue. 3ème vraiment bien faite, léger manque de complexité mais forte présence. Arrière-bouche plus qu’agréable, et sans aucun défaut. Longueur avec de très belles découvertes encore, du malt, des fleurs, des senteurs des champs. Jambes fines et bien marquées. Alcool très correct, il aide à l’ensemble et laisse s’exprimer le tout. Finale avec beaucoup de finesse, jusqu’à la tendresse. CONCLUSION : une superbe blonde, au beau caractère, très spontanée et naturelle. Bref, le contraire absolu de la blonde artificielle !!!

Dobre z mocna iloscia naturalnych drozdzy, piana stoji mocno i jest bardzo trwala. Po dolaniu mazi zabarwia sie na szaro w niektorych miejscach. Mocno metne i o duzych ksztaltach. Piwo jaest niesamowicie swieze i naturalne. Delikatne i zbozowe w smaku. Prawie jakby pochodzilo z ekologicznej uprawy.

Aroma of pepper, lemon, white grape and dough. Appearance is unfiltered amber with creamy bone head. Flavor is quite peppery up front, like a Saison, but also has some light fruity esters intertwined with dough; the finish is quite herbal. Palate is chewy and endlessly effervescent, like all the great Belgian ales. Excellent.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pours a very hazy lemon orange with extremely think frothy white head. Aroma is a lot of bitter citrus (grapefruit) and some grainy metallic notes with cereal aroma as well. Flavor is very bready with undertones of caramel and brown sugar/candi sugar. Cotton candy flavors come out. Coriander present. Body is creamy but full of carbonation.

Bottle. Hazy yellow orange, massive whipped eggwhite foamy head. Flavor is pale malts, bread and a hint of yeast. Nice mild backbone of candi sugars and a fresh hop profile to dry it out a bit. Solid easy sipping Belgian pale ale. Tasty.

Very hazy amber beer, good off white head. Light semi dry palate, a little soft. Bitterish brett flavour contrasts with nice hops - bitterish orange, smooth peach and lesser tropical fruits. A little minerals and then building bitterness. Really nicely joined up and satisfying beer.

Smiske R-Ale draft@ZBF 2011: “truesteamdryhoped” version, where a Hop Randall was used, I tried the version with Cascade hops, earlier in the day, poured a very cloudy, hazy orange, the structure was very grainy, chewy-like, taste was very strong on dry hops, followed by citrus, oranges & some yeast, with the dry hops leading to a very bitter aftertaste, it was like a hop, citrus-flavoured milkshake, all over the place, very unbalanced but very interesting & lovely
