Bottled@HBF2016. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is mild spices, some citrus, mild gluelike alcohol as well as some slight yeastiness. Flavour is quite similar, leaving a quite alcoholic and sweetish ripe fruity aftertaste. Quite rich carbonation.

Mooi goudblond licht troebel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag die aan het glas blijft plakken. Licht citrus aroma, beetje bloemig. Smaken van geel fruit, héél klein bittertje. Romig en vol in de mond met mooie warme afdronk. Lekker biertje.

Carbonatation moyenne, mousse correcte, une légère acidité mais un goût global assez sucré. Dit comme ça, ça ne semble pas folichon et pourtant, elle s’avère être très agréable, au point que l’on a pas l’impression qu’elle tape à 8°. Très bonne surprise pour ma part.

Hazy golden colour, with a two fingers head that doesn’t hold, No lace. Smell of fruits, oranges, pears, spices (is that allspice?). Sweet palate, oily, medium body. Taste of fruits, pear, spices. I don’t know why I think it would be great with some blue cheese.

Blonde dorée trouble, minimum syndical quant à la mousse et la pétillance. Le nez est sur la banane levurée et les céréales, une pointe acide évoquant le cidre et la pomme verte. La bouche est également banane mais aussi abricot sec, miel. Très sucrée mais pas au point d’être ecoeurante, la carbo n’est aussi mauvaise que la faible mousse et la faible petillance le laisse pense. L’alcool est très présent et réchauffe le gosier. Pas vraiment rafraichissante mais agréable, à réserver pour les soirées d’hiver !

Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow gold with a sturdy white top that fades somewhat. Aroma has malts and a spicy hint I can’t recognize. The taste develops beautifully: a mild sweetness at first develops into bitterness and leaves you with a spicy, metallic aftertaste which is quite pleasant surprisingly.

Bottle. Appearance: unfiltered apple juice, lasting foam head. Fruity aroma: mostly pear, apples, hint of pepper and nutmeg, hint of basement funk. Not bad. Sour taste with a sweet lacing. Sour: apple, sour white grape, hint of hairspray / turpentine. Sweet: apple pulp, pear, hint of yeast / cheese. This beer should definitely be paired with food: it has all the qualities to accentuate, rather than dominate the palate. This would go well with a salad with (goat / white) cheese, walnuts and / or radicchio, radish.

Deep hazy honey and bronzed coloured body with a thinnish, relatively fast-dying tan head, about a centimetre tall. Bottle sort of exploded a bit when opened, at age ~17months. Aroma of honey, yeast, corn, alcohol, caramel, toffee, light fruits and a nice rich malt note - pungent and nice. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep malty and caramel sweetness up front with a strong yeast and deep curacao flavour showing on the tail end - strong, but showing nicely. Aftertaste has a robust complexity with the sweetness primary and the rich maltiness and yeast pungency right behind. Overall, a nice belgie with some solid flavours and a deep full-flavoured finish. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Delices et Caprices in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €2,20 sampled at home in Washington, two days before leaving to head back to Belgium for more beer!

This is a blond sweet beer with a taste of bananas. This sweet flavor hides the strong 8 % alcohol content of the beer. It is a slightly hazy beer. There is a little spiciness in the beer, but it is not to bitter. A strong body.

Bottle shared at Gainsbar - Kortrijk, Belgium. Pours lightly hazy, yellow-gold, quite effervescent with a thick, creamy white head. Lots of yeasty dough in the nose with notes of sugar fruits. Hugely sweet flavor with plenty of sugary white bread, dough, hay. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with more sugary, doughy white bread, fruits, white sugar, hay. Very sweet but OK overall.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy blond with decent white head. Beautifully sweet aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is just incredible. Beautifully smooth with a soothing sweetness & good tripel notes. Very nicely blended with very minimal bitterness or spice. I could happily polish off a 75cl bottle of this.

Very fruity aroma, exotic fruits, apricot, pear, strawberry, rosewater, sherry, hay, whisky. Soft, apply, fruity taste, medium carbo, bready malt base, sourish touch, yeasty with mild grassy hop bitterness in the finish (fresh hop cones apparently having been used). Enjoyable.
