Rune (8341) - Tromsø, - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle picked up from the fridge at ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske and shared with Finn at the hotel room. Pours a huge, rocky white head with fine retention and rings of lace. Hazy golden body. Grass hoppy nose with a spicy touch. Fruit hoppy taste together with caramel malts. Bittersweet end. Drinks quite well (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

Flesje 33cl,heldere gele kleur, een dikke schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Ruikt naar graan en hooi. In begin een licht zoetige smaak die overgaat in een licht hoppige, bittere, nasmaak. Een soepel, makkelijk drinkbaar biertje.

33cl flesje bij De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in origineel Buffalo glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met dikke witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: ruikt een beetje naar wiet, erg bitter zoals de naam al aangeeft, hoppig Conclusie: geen slecht bier, voor mijn smaak te straf qua bitterheid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DutchMark (183) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Typical Belgian. Good quality brew but not very exciting. Very drinkable though. Clear yellow with nice white head and prickly carbonation. Flavor starts a bit sweet with some tartness and goes to a long mildly bitter aftertaste. There is some citrus, yeast, licorice and malts in the flavor. Enjoyed it.

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 (327) - 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 (180) - 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
