COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

330 ml bottle @ August Von Trappe
Straw yellow to pale orange beer with persistent white head. Clear without sediment, hazy with it. Aroma has Belgian yeast, light tartness and rubbery anise. Flavor has yeast, fruits and anise. Palate is medium full and foamy. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste is yeasty, fruity, herbal and slightly alcoholic when warm. Very basic, too much anise for me.

thmsboyd (112) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle BBE: 28.03.16. Lightly chilled. Gushed when opened. Slightly hazy golden body with a medium-sized loose head. No lacing. Bread, corned beef and subtle barnyard on the nose. Immediate spice to taste, a little malty sweetness but mainly dry. A light to medium body, rough texture with lively carbonation and a slightly artificial/plasticine finish. Overall a huge disappointment - I expected to like this a lot, but it seems a bit confused - could gushing be an indication of infection?

Tometclo (83) - FRANCE - MAR 14, 2015
Une jolie mousse blanche bien épaisse, une bière de couleur jaune, cela pétille finement. Un goût classique, aucune surprise, dommage pour une blonde belge à 7.5%. Pression 50 Cl Académie de la Bière.

willisread (836) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 6, 2015
On tap at Watering Hole. Nice big soapy head that lasted throughout. Big yeast aromas with apricot, peach and cinnamon present. Medium-bodied with a sweet and slightly tart taste on the palate with a nice dry finish. A little clove and nutmeg in there as well as it comes to room temperature.

MarkoNm (1511) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 6, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy and very pale straw color, lots of carbonation causing hefty white head. Slightly fruity and wheaty aroma, but yeasty smell takes over it. Taste starts sweet and slightly fruity, again quite yeasty with some soury feel to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable actually for a non-fan of strong Belgians.

Złote, metale piwo z obfitą, puszystą i sztywną pianą oraz świeżym, cytrusowym aromatem. W smaku gęste, początkowo lekko cytrusowe, następnie biszkoptowe a na finiszu z łagodną grejpfrutową goryczką.

KW92 (535) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 9, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, krótka.
AROMAT: Wyraźny aromat belgijskich drożdży. W tle suszona morela, przyprawy, zioła, świeży groszek, cytrusowe nuty.
SMAK: W smaku już zdecydowanie bardziej owocowe (morela), ale do głosu dochodzą również słody. Pod koniec ciekawy posmak ziołowo-przyprawowy.Wyczuwalny jest alkohol, ale nie agresywny, tylko rozgrzewający.
OGÓLNIE: Dobre piwo do degustacji. Dużo niuansów w smaku i aromacie. Nie każdemu będzie smakować.

Blonde dorée, peu de carbo, petit collet. Aromes fruités, pain et les levures belges. Mince mais assez vive, des saveurs céréales et pain.
