KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2012
16oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had great retention and superb sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty sweet Belgian yeast with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), bubblegum and coriander. The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a touch of apple and a hint of banana early on, with a nice fruity ester creeping in along with a bold yeasty presence and just a bit of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time proceeding the swallow with the fruity yeast taste lingering for a little while, before fading away entirely. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a strong lively carbonation. Overall a light flavorful Abbey Ale with a great drinkability, which could be dangerous considering the somewhat higher ABV...

kraddel (5199) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2015
75cl bottle, labeled as grand cru. Pours unclear warm blonde. Small white head. Smell is sweet ( somewhat spiced sugary sweetness ) Taste is sharp, bit bitter. Definate sweet undertone ( Sugar, mild spices ) yeasty towards the end. Agressive carbonation that really triggers the bitterness. Somewhat malty underneath the other aspects. OK

Smells nice. Malty, very fruity, sweet, bit of wild strawberries, perfume in taste. Sweet malts and fruity in aftertaste. Nice and crisp.

500ml ceramic bottle (Beer Express, Tallinn)
Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.
