pedrodv89 (30) - wetteren, - JAN 21, 2013
from Brouwerij Van Den Bossche Is blonde ale with lots of lemony/grassy hop aroma, very rich white foam and small crisp feel bubbles. Full of spicy, fruity flavors with a heart warming body.

Très forte amertume qui persiste longtemps en bouche, le houblon est très présent. Beau col de mousse, persistante, qui retombe doucement le long du verre.

ElManana (274) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
Pours clear golden, orange with a big white foamy head. Aroma has citrus, typical Belgian-yeast, some sourness hidden. Taste is bitter (duh) with a bit of citrus and hops. Dull beer.

seynie (167) - Tienen, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Duvel like colour and carbonation, but with more residue. Yeast and bitterness dominate, with only a bit of citrus. Some cabbage, cooked chicory. Long bitter finish. A bit one sided

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2014
Bottled. @ Degust. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has slight grain, citrus, grass and typical Belgian yeast tones. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white, lasting head. The taste is citric, yeasty and has big bitternes in the finish. Didn’t expected it to be 8%, more like 6-7. Pretty decent and tasteful.

Alengrin (2110) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
One of those attempts by Belgian family brewers to connect with the new wave of IPAs in this country, since 2008. Snow white, creamy head, deep golden colour, aroma of pale malts, leafy hops, caramel, pear and some DMS (cooked cabbage); taste softly malty in onset, rounded, bit of caramel, quickly overpowered by a strong, citrussy and leafy hop bitterness, finish long and dry. I applaud all efforts made to make the Belgian public familiar with IPAs and this is no exception.

Het lekkerste van de Buffalo-bieren van deze brouwerij, lekkere smaak, een aanrader.
