33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Carrefour. A budget price abbey beer (an abhorrent nonsensical concept dreamed up by proficient marketers that haunts the Belgian beer landscape like a rotting corpse – this referring to abbey beers and not budget beers). BBF 14/11/2014. Pours an almost clear amber with a small unappetizing greyish off-white looking head. It smells heavily of nearly phenolic esters mixed slightly cellar musty grains and thick sticky warm grandmother toffee candy. Taste is upfront the concentrated of taste old warm sticky grandparents toffee candy, sticky unpleasant sugar, BE yeast, it is a bit much even by Belgian standards but I can imagine some people quite digging this, the taste than follows over into hollow malts, slight bitter ester, lingering plastic flavour, metallic hints, the whole is a touch watery, think of sparkling mineral water and such is the body a bit as well. There is nothing here that I could objectively complain about but it is a bit like licking clean the previously describe dish of candy, no technical flaws but overall a best a cheap abbey beer for those who glorify Leffe. The market distinction of this beer being and the appeal to the target group being clear as day. One could call it quaff-able.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2013
Blonde dorée s’approchant de l’ambrée, forte effervescence de visu, moins au palais, fine mousse blanche persistante. Plutôt maltée, un peu fruitée mais lavasse sur la longueur. Une bière d’étiquette par les brasseurs de la Gauloise dont elle se rapproche...

Bottle: Served in an Ikea taster (?): brewed for Carrefour... Got it probably to expensive from a nightshop... A yellow pour. A clear yellow colored beer with a lively small white foamy head. Aromas of flowers, peach, citrus, malts, ash, bread, yeast, grains and light sweets. Flavours of bitter, herbs, yeast, fruit, apricot, peach, malts, light ash, spicy, honey, light floral, light grass and some grainy tones. Aftertaste is malty, warm, yeasty, light fruity and some grains. Low to medium carbo, soft creamy texture, medium body and a creamy texture. Another typical Belgian ale, not really bad, but wouldn’t order is again, any time!

greenclansman (734) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - MAR 12, 2013
Dark blond color, good carbonation that gives a "fake" foamy head. Aromas are a bit sour, grainy and fruity. Sharp light taste, with a kinda fruity sour aftertaste. For sure not a good beer, but for its price, I had way worse than this one.
