gEUS (1430) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2015
bottle at hme. Pours cloudy dark yellow with an orange hue and a more or less steady thin head.Sweet malts in the nos eand some yeast and spices, all a bit dull and characterless. Medium body, quite round indeed but no real outspoken characteristics except for the light malt touch. Taste is not particularly there, it’s all kind of bland.

Cloudy slab of dull orange, thin white head of tiny bubbles; aroma of candy, banana and yeast; first up is sweet fruit - banana, oranges - and toffee; then spice, a touch of cinnamon perhaps; a long sweet and spicy finish with much yeast; prickles the tongue; straightforward, steady mid-strenth belgian.

kraddel (4539) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle . Pours hazy and dark blonde , good white head . Smell is yeasty, rather sweet . Taste is sweet ( sugar ) , bit metallic, grainy , sweet undertone . A fruity aspect from the yeast ( intense Banana ! - that is also collaborating with the sweetness in the beer . ) Ok beer . Rather high carbo , but still OK . Mouthfeel is nice , to the thick side for the ABV even .

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
on tap @Moeder lambic Couleur orange clair, mousse descend vite avec une bonne rétention. Nez levures belges épicées plus que bubble gum. Peu amère, le côté bubble gum se révèle plus en bouche et est trop présent. Reste propre au niveau des levures tout de même.
