Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Garbage Night II - London. Big thanks to Fergus for this bruiser. Pours clear yellow with lots of pale floaties. Pretty eatery on the nose, plenty of dough, faint tangy lemon. Medium sweet flavor with lots more doughy malts, more lemon, some meringue. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary, doughy white bread finish, some Belgian yeast, mild straw. Tasty enough.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2009
Clear, blond body. Creamy to rocky head. Aroma of hops, citrus and some light malts. Lightly bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Not bad, but not great either, it has a nice bitter touch.

At least 2009 Vintage // 2011 (BBF date) // 33 cl. bottle @ Bier Central // clear light yellow, small white head // smells vintage blond ale, sweet white grapes & sweet yeast in an odd, indicatory way // taste cornflakes, yeast, sweet oxidation, white sugar, artificial, white grapes, hay, citrus, malts // m/m // think the label design is reminiscent of Evil Twin // neat // beer itself, past standard condition // dime in a dozen

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 9, 2015
Hazy sun yellow colour with a pillowy medium to large off white head with good lacings. Aromas of hay, toasted malt and some yeast esters develop. Softly carbonated, lightly slick with a light body. Light sweetness with a touch of spice and bitterness. Short to medium lasting pleasant finish. Thirst quencher.

kraddel (6386) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle found in a shop , nearly next to the van eecke beer with the same name. I wonder if they are somehow related??? Pours clear blonde, small white head. Almost looks like a lager. Smell is sweet, crispy. Taste is mildly bitter. Dry, bit dusty malts ( this was best before 2014 so could be due to age, but the dusty taste is rather mild, so still very ok for those who like it rather fresh ) crispy. Ok beer, actually. Perhaps a bit on the sweet side for what it is. But its ok

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2007
Clear golden beer. Small white head. Malty aroma. The flavour is rather sweet and malty. Hardly any bitterness. All by all I would call this a good "pils". Very refreshing.
