Same style as Duvel, Sloeber, Judas,... Pale golden colour, a lot of carbonation. Yeasty with light fruity nose. Some mettalic notes in the finish.

Une bière très connue en Belgique, et qui a fait un long chemin. Est-ce pour autant un fleuron de la brasserie ?? Les avis sont mitigés, assez variés et pour tout dire partagés. Présentation visuelle et olfactive intéressante. Verre au pied épais très personnalisé. Jolie couleur blond foncé soutenu. Clarté nette. Bulles assez grosses mais très nombreuses et extrêmement vives. Mousse blanche très épaisse et crémeuse en haut comme du blanc d’oeuf battu. Arômes de blé, levure, pointe de fruits blancs et coriandre. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur une amertume fine, profonde, avec des herbes des étangs, une épice soft, une pointe de poivre blanc. Arrière-bouche assez courte. 2ème sur de la carotte de sapin, de la terre arable blonde. Arrière-bouche maltée, plus équilibrée. 3ème sur de la levure et de l’orge. La longueur est moyenne, peu convaincante. La levure est très présente au premier abord, bien définie, intéressante. L’alcool est modéré, mais correct. La finale est plus harmonieuse et assez longue. CONCLUSION : une bière visuellement satisfaisante, au nez et premières bouches convaincantes, mais qui faiblit sur la longueur avant une finale plus harmonieuse. On ne sait que penser en définitive, et à trop y réfléchir, on se perd en conjenctures ... Ceci ne peut apporter un gros score ...

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Carrefour. BBF 17/01/2016. Looks like an advertisement beer, golden, bubbles rising, foamy med. white head. So yeah, pretty good appearance. Smells like esters, banana, grass, white bread yeast, fusels and some alcohol alongside the grass. Tastes of fusels, alcohol, white bread, cakes mixed with plastic, banana, quite sweet, touch chemical, candy sugar sweet, synthetic honey. Touch fizzy. Another BE brew that is aptly made but mainly just tastes of fusels, alcohol, plastic, white sugar etc. You know what I mean…

Flaske 0,33l fra Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Delt med Rune under avskjedsrating i H9 - 3 Des 13. Gylden. Litt uklar med bunnfall i siste kvelling. OK luftig skum som etterlater litt lacing. Alkoholen fint integrert i en litt søt fruktsmak.

Blonde légèrement dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne, col blanc crémeux persistant. Malts cara (pils) bien présents, notamment pour l’amertume, notes herbacées. Agréable, sans plus.

Shared a 75cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malts and lightly fruit. Average frizzy carbonation with a light body. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet, a bit watery. Overall, a nice beer.

Pours a clear blond beer with minimal saturation. Has a big white head that disappears quickly. Smells Spicy, coriander and malty. Tastes bitter, and spicy. Leaves a nice fresh and bitter palate. Can feel the alcohol well. Great beer!

Good pour. Lively, champagne effervescence. Color and clarity no different than a Stella. Nothing to really distinguish the taste from the traditional blonde (Leffe, et. al). The palate is a little thin, but leaves the tightly clustered bubbles alive. Nothing to offend - nothing to please. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml Bottle. Clear golden, off-white head. Nose is all about malts. Taste: malty, yeast, fruity touch, hop bitter. Overall: one-dimensional blond, bitter, slightly hoppy, nothing great.
