madsberg (10231) - SÝborg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. White ddense head. Sweetness, fruits and some light metallic notes. Flavour is light spiced, fruity and has some barnyard notes. Is a bit thin bodied. Sweet and spiced end. This is not really doing anything for me. Pure averageness.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2006
Fully hazy yellow beer with orange shine; small but persistent, just off-white head. Flowery, lime blossom and lunaria nose, with yeasty esters, fruity and a whiff of sugar syrup. Well-balanced, sweet/dry-bitterish, but the sugars win out eventually. Mind you, Iíve had this fresher. Again lunaria and I seem to get some coriander too, ending in a spicey finish. Medium bodied. No new aftertaste, but longlastign finish. Iíve had this before, at the Blauwershof, and it was in better shape then. Thereís definitely more in this.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
At Blauwershof, Godewaersvelde (in France, despite the Flemish name), where it is the house beer, back in April 2008. A pretty decent blondish beer with moderate, but not excessive, spicy notes. Some yeasty character with some residual sweetness. Nothing particularly stands out but itís solid enough.

thebeertourist (4822) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2006
75 cl bottle with champagne cork, bought at the ZBF 2006. Hazy golden colour with hints of orange. A big white head. Poured carefully to avoid the sediment. Nice floral and grassy aroma, with spices, at least coriander, and yeastiness in the background. Flavours are surprisingly dry throughout, ending very dry. Coriander is there, but subdued. More prominent is the grassy hoppiness. Also some cellar flavours. Some warming alcohol, surprisingly light-bodied, dry mouthfeel. The label does not give much away, yet the hop frame indicate a relationship to Poperings Hommelbier. According to the ZBF brochure this is a blend of Het Kapittel Tripel and Watouís Wit made for Blauwershof in Godewaersvelde, France, much like the blend of Het Kapittel Abt and Watouís Wit made for ít Hommelhof. I have not tasted the latter, but this blend is definitely successful, uniting the spiciness of the wit with the solidly hoppy tripel.

tderoeck (4696) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2010
Pours a clear yellow to orange beer, white rough head. Smells hoppy and even a little saline (?). A nice mouthfeeling and a full bitter taste. A dry and bitter aftertaste. What to say? This is a correct, flawless beer, but itís not very exciting or interesting to the beer lover.
