UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottle, 33 cl. (bought @ Van Uxeem)
Almost clear darkgolden to amber color, with dark white head.
Aroma malts, yeasts, bit spices.
Taste spice, fruity, some caramel, good malts, little sourness, and nice bitterness, dry end.
I’m surprised but this is not a labelbeer.

Bottle 330ml - given to me by a bar owner in Veurne It has a biscuity toffee nose with the slightest hint of cereals and floral hops. It pours a medium amber with a very thin head that disappears after a couple of swigs. Taste wise this beer is sweet fruity malts giving way, through a slight smokiness into a slightly bitter and dry finish. Love this for a Belgian beer. Reminds me solidly of Veurne - any town with that many bars in a small square rocks by my reckoning!!

Hazy, orangey-amber with a big, white head. Sweet aroma with good spiciness and fruit. Flavour is sweet, slightly alcholic, with a great bitterness providing a dry, somewhat grassy finish. Good carbonation, medium body. Quite a nice Belgian blond ale, brewed for the "Procession of penitence" / ("Boetprocessie" in Dutch) every last Sunday of July in Veurne. fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008

Bottle from Jesse, thanx. A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of hops with fruits, like citrus and notes of caramel. The taste is sweet with bitter, fruity, orange and citrus. The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge white head. Aroma is dry grassy. Mild caramelish and spiced. Mild fruity note. Lingering caramelish into the finish. Good one. BlackHaddock (7672) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
33cl Brown bottle, with one week left before its best before date (31st Jan 2010). Poured into a stemmed tulip ’Corsendonk’ glass.
Plenty of sediment in the bottle, managed to pour the beer without it getting into the glass. The beer was therefore a misty golden yellow in colour, good white head on top. Loads of bubbles rising through the brew.
Sweet and sour aromas, some toffee esters, yeast also within the smell.
Thetaste is a blend of many flavours, a toffee sweetness at first, mixed with some caramel. Then a steadying yeast and spice combination which turns the beer into a more interesting prospect altogether.
A very nice beer indeed, will look for it again when I next visit Belgium.

(Bottle, Cambrinus, Brugge, 17 July 2012) Golden colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, herbs and a touch of toast. Malty, fruity taste with notes of toast, dried fruit, apricots, a touch of bread and a certain sweetness in a finish with a mild bitterness. Medium body. Quite nice and tasty.
