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.

Hmmmm non mi ha convinto molto: aroma lieve ma non spiacevole, abbastanza agrumoso (arancia? bergamotto acido?); fa una bella schiuma molto compatta e bianca. Ma il sapore č piuttosto disastroso: i 7 gradi e mezzo si sentono tutti, e il resto č un compromesso fra metallico e cappero. La consiglierei con tartine al paté di olive... tuttavia rimane una birra non proprio azzeccata.

75 cl Bottle. Not my favourite blonde I tell you A slightly acidic taste from the high, not at all balanced alcohol. The only thing saving this beer from being total rubbish is the nice spicyness and fruitiness.

Pinball (11939) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2008
strong aroma, citrus dominates but other stuff below that. hazy golden with large white head. caramel, honey, grass, refreshing but with a "old-caramelly" undertone. perhaps oats. overall nice brew. but not over the top stellar.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle at home with book. Aroma is spicey and pale malts, honey and fruity, floural and citrusy. Taste was similar but nicely balanced, peppery yet alround very appealing. Very nicely done and good to get a decent belgian strong ale at last!

yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Spiced coriander and light wheaty aroma with a distinct yeasty note. Flavour starts sweet and goes into a light yeasty and then spiced set of flavours. Ends somewhat bitter and spiced. Easy to drink beer that goes really well with Italian and mild spiced food.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 12, 2008
Nice all-around blonde but fresh on draft it can taste like slightly alcoholic coriander soup. Better when bottle-fermented, IMO. Sweet, coriander nose with orange notes. Flavor is moderately sweet with mild bitterness, of which more would be nice. Spices linger in the aftertaste. I don’t think this beer was always so soupy.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Re-rate 22/1/12: Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. thanks kerenmk. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of yeast, some fruitiness and bready hints. Sweetish fruity flavor with yeast and light spiciness. Medium-bodied. So-so. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8

(3/6/08) Bottle shared with jerc at Trappistenhuis in Ghent. Hazy golden color. Aroma of yeast, some malt and some hops. Sweetish, slightly malty flavor with some fruitiness and later drier hoppiness with hints of yeast. OK but nothing out of the ordinary. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

2008-03-06. Golden yellow body with a modest white head. (3+) Mild dry aroma, light pale malt, light alcohol in both aroma (5+) and flavour. Average to thin palate. Not unpleasant but does not inspire me to say much about it either
Bottle shared with DSG at Trappisthuis, Gent

Plovmand (7880) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. BBF June 06. Amazingly this beer has evolved in the bottle during the years of saving. Not sure if its to the better but its a bit different than the flesh sample of this good beer. Pours hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma is spicy and malty with notes of pepper and coriander. Taste is still yeasty but more spicy than usual.
