nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2012
750 ml. Barely discernible notches may indicate bb 05-2009?? Hazy, active golden-orange body with a lasting quarter inch of creamy foam. Aromas of rusty apple and spicy orange. Flavor is brown sugar, pear, lemon-orange, and apple cider with some funky earth spiciness and woody notes to balance. Tastes like a farmhouse ale; I think it really is 3 years past its prime as a Wit. Medium body is soft, smooth, and sweetish but fairly well balanced by the quick, pithy finish.

EddyBeer1 (834) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
Blonde légèrement dorée claire, effervescence forte en fontaine de visu, éphémère au palais, col blanc moyen. Malts pils et de froment, très légèrement citronnée, petite amertume, aqueuse. Sans intérêt et en aucun cas une Blanche!

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of tangy citrus, yeast and spices. Funky aroma, I don’t like it!

corkyrory66 (514) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Bière voulue par le brasseur comme un mixte entre la blanche et la blonde … Ce qu’il appelle aussi une « double blanche ». Donc malt d’orge et de froment, bien sûr, et quelques épices dont la coriandre. Mon exemplaire est juste à date limite en mai 14, et titre à 6,8%. Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette (ce qui n’en fait déjà pas une blanche...) Bulles fines mais pas très nombreuses. Mousse quasi nulle. Arômes de malt pils, beurre, blé, pointe de céleri. 1ère bouche souple sur un ensemble malt/houblon de base. Arrière-bouche agréable, sans plus. 2ème bouche avec un peu de blé. Arrière-bouche plate. 3ème avec un goût très linéaire, plutôt orienté malt clair (ce qui en fait une blonde de type pils, sauf que nous sommes en fermentation haute). La longueur n’apporte pas de progrès notoire. Agréable mais vraiment basique. La levure est belle, intéressante, largement suffisante pour cette bière. L’alcool est sans intérêt. La finale est banale. On est au seuil critique. CONCLUSION : une bière manquée dans tous les sens du terme, dans les intentions du brasseur et à la dégustation. Beaucoup trop linéaire sur la longueur, sans profondeur. Aucune sensation noble. Un coup dans l’eau...

DwarfeD (809) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
33cl bottle from Delhaize. Clear golden with a medium white head which disappeared pretty quick. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Peach, orange, citrus, grass and some herbs. A nice refreshing Belgian brew.

Dorndorf (2) - - FEB 21, 2014 does not count
very light and refreshing with a good aftertaste, pleasantly surprised. Bought it in a ’mixed lot’ so didn’t know what to expect (thought it might be a cheap beer to make up the numbers) but next time I visit Belgium I will look for it and buy more

timmwillum (61) - BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2014
Flot krystalklar gylden øl med tyndt meget flygtigt skum. Næsen er sødlig og krydret med citrus og lidt honning. Smagen er sødlig med citrus, frugt og lidt honning. Ok, men lidt for sød til min smag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@home. Straw slight hazy. Fine one finger foam. Small nice bubbels with good carbonation. Citrus, ginger, clover notes. Fresh spicy not peppery dusty gentle taste. Medium mouthfeel. 6.8%vol.

subcombicio (163) - Marghera, ITALY - FEB 1, 2014
Gran bel prodotto anche se preferisco la tripel base che fa questo birrificio. Comunque anche questa una soddisfacente tripel che aiuta a riscaldarti con le sue note calorose di malto e frutti... praticamente come esserr in abazia. A confronto della tripel base però meno aggressiva e più delicata, cosa che però la rende poco accattivante per alcuni, per altri invece proprio più accattivante per questo !!
