Bright golden colour, with some very very small particles and a nice creamy head. Aroma of yeast and malt, with some citrus and fruity notes. Smooth taste and quite sticky texture, with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness, with a little more hoppy long finish.

drpimento (2282) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Good beer overall. Nothing really special, just solid good..Poured with an off white foamy, frothy head that settled down shortly and some lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma is yeasty, malty, and spicey. Flavor is similar with a tinge of sour in the background. A little sweetness, but really almost dry. Great body and excellent carbonation. A few hints of alcohol, but that’s fine. Nice finish. Could easily have another. Have to be careful though.

FatPhil (9507) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
330ml bottle (Cambrinus, Brugge)
6 classic sweet mild blond aroma.
4 Rich orange, sticky doughy head
7 Yes, I know this is Haacht, but this is a quality blond. Rich malty body, gently bitter hops, good balance.
4 Full palate, smooth and a little sweet. Pleasant carbonation. Finnish gently hoppy, certainly quite muted, but they are real green noble hops.
14 Solid Belgian Abbey beer. Covers the alcohol very well.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber, with a foamy, disappearing white head. Aroma and flavor are fruit, orange peel, bit of caramel, yeast, and mild hopping. Moderately sweet. Doesn’t seem particularly christmasy, but it’s fine as a Belgian ale.
