thewolf (11206) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
Bottle, bought @ BelgianShop.com.
Pours hazy golden with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma, lots of red apples, some yeast, slight nuttiness and grainy malts. High lively carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, but there is not that much of it. Light apples, oranges and pineapples. Light bitter finish. Good, but not overwhelming.

cosmicpolly (27) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2009
Blond, lightly fizzy beer with no foam at all after a few minutes. It smells fruity and grainy, but also a bit weird (maybe a haze of vomit?). The first taste is gorgeous: sweet and grainy, but the aftertaste is quiet bitter. Nice beer, but not awsome.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2009
bottle, yellow/golden colour and very disappointing head. Smells a bit fruity but had also some strange smell (like from garbage). Taste: too sweet, bitter, fruity and grassy. If they told me this was a beer you can buy for 0.20 euro, I would believe them.

harrisoni (14016) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2009
25cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours clear gold, with thin white head. Some decent yeast estery aroma. It’s a pretty good drinkable blond. Could drink a whole load of these to be honest sat at a bar in Belgium trying to get drunk. Yep, fine.

bottle, pours gold with a thin white head. Malt and liqorice mixed with some citris in the aroma. Light malt, lemon and alcohol flavors end with a spicy finish of liqorice and pepper.

White weak head. Deep golden colour. Aroma is malty. fruity (peach) slightly citrusy with light metallic notes. Flavor is moderately malty with apricots, peaches and wooden tones, ending in a balanced slightly hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Gar4016 (24) - , Iowa, USA - NOV 21, 2008
On tap at Brasserie des Fagnes. Golden yellow color. Medium head. Smells fruity, a little sugar sweet, some grassiness, and corriander. Maybe a bit spicier than a staple belgian blond but nice in that respect. Medium body, lots of corriander makes it spicy, some licorice, ended with bitter hops I didn’t expect. Not bad, I found their brown to be more drinkable.

shrubber85 (7862) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle. Sweet apple, coriander, licorice and malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Sweet lemon and coriander flavor. Nice body. High acidity. Reminds me most of a strong witbier because of the coriander. Nice though.
