blackisle (850) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Color hazy to cloudy pale golden, two finger frothy off-white head, recedes slowly, thick lacing; aroma sweet malty, very fruity, yeasty, honey, orange, tangerine, hint of coriander, floral hops; taste moderate sweet, fruity, light spicy; medium body, oily texture, mouthfeel and carbonation soft; finish mild honey-like sweet and slightly bitter, spicy tones. I like this one!

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Delicately grainy pale malty nose with a medicinal touch and shy traces of citrus and pears. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost tame carbonation. Initially delicately sugary malty taste with a moderate fruit-character of pears and Nashi fruits; mildly sweet and delicately bitter finish with fruity and slightly spicy undertones and just a whiff of flowery hops. A bit dispensable. 04.III.14

Birra bionda molto fresca e beverina...attenti ai suoi 6°. In bottiglia non é troppo gassata e lascia la bocca pulita. Ottima birra estiva .

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2013
Deep golden colour with steady creamy head and smooth body. Nose of intense Belgian yeast. Taste of delicious Belgian yeast, light and sparkling, mild exotic fruits, straw, vanilla, woods and ligth roses. Hints of light strong alcohol and coriander. Very easy and nice to drink, though it is "only" a football club beer, it is a Belgian football club beer and therefore it was just right and delicious. (Btw, we were at a Belgian football match just some days ago and they only had Jupiler, Hoegaarden Citron and some Kriek available....)

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle bought at Stassenvin in Aubel. And what a beauty this one is ! Take a look at that bottle, enjoy the rouge et blancs and after poruing you get a nice belgian blonde with a lots of honey and sweetness in the aroma. From start to end this one hits some big points. Drinking the beer made for the best football fans in Belgium does not get a bigger score but loads of respect.

Benzai (8924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Clear yellow-golden color, medium sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell malts, dusty, cardboard. Taste malts, sweet malts, again a bit dusty, cardboard, old hay, hint of soft bitter and spices. Don’t like it.

psilosophy (512) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 22, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur blond pale, mousse correcte de tenue moyenne. Arômes fruités (agrumes), une propension à me faire penser à un mauvais mousseux! En outre, elle est trop sucrée et se révèle assez vite écoeurante. Carbonnation moyenne - faible. Trouvée à l’entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 29/IV/2012 - 33cl bottle @ ZBF 2012 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2012-439)

Clear golden beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable and adhesive. Aroma: yeast, pretty sugary, floral notes. MF: good carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sweet malt, bit sugary, some orange peel, spices, mainly sweet. Aftertaste: bitter, some citrus, bit soapy, sugary, pretty sweet ending as well, without being cloying.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2012
33cl, la bière qui fait la fierté de Liège et de ’papa’ magique socialiste. Val Dieu monte sur le terrain avec cette bière et à défaut de marquer un but propose un spectacle intéressant à la buvette. Couleur dorée, col blanc avec qcq sédiments en bouteille. Arôme malté, fruité et épicé et grains, retrouve cette levure type de Val Dieu mais aussi un bouquet qui me rappelle le genièvre. En bouche, profilé épicé / herbacé auquel se mélange un malt biscuité avec un côté anise ou baies de genévrier. Bière agréable en dégustation, je ne me vois pas en descendre de trop dans les tribunes. Dans tous les cas, ça change des bières immondes de chez Inbev.
