Huge white head atop a hazy straw colored body. Pale malts and light citrus aromas. Smaller amounts of coriander and lavender. Nice lace. Light pale malts and light spice. Fairly simple but a nice drinker. 1/15

Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2015
hazy yellow colour, huge, long lsting off-white head; arom of some basement, citruses, floral and peppery notes, hints of fruitiness and some soap; taste of citruses, malty sweetness, some grassy hops, and yeasty notes; very refreshing - perfect choice for a hot summer evening

(bottle) cloudy yellow - beige colour with a small whit head; aroma of lemon, then spice, then jam; balaced, neutral flavour (or, paraphrasing Homer ’hello, hello, taste -where are you?); creamy palate

Bawelt (818) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2015 Vu le titrage d?alcool et sa tête bien blonde, on tombe finalement sur une bière assez corpulente mais pas aussi épicée que sa grande soeur bleue !Très agréable et aromatique (en termes de puissance plutôt qu?en variété, la levure et un fond épicé dominent), un bon substitut à la bleue quand le thermomètre monte.

BuckeyeBoy (7153) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 29, 2015
330ml bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out a dish water color topped with a white head. Nose is nice a great spice note lemongrass citrus and some bread. Taste is more of the spice lemongrass citrus and a nice bread.

alteregoo (1301) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, sycząca i dość szybko znikająca do niewielkiej pierzynki, barwa jasno złota, mętna. Aromat typowo belgijski - brzoskwinie z trawą cytrynową i lekko stajennymi nutami plus nieco przyprawowości. Orzeźwiający, świeży zapach budzący skojarzenia z białym półwytrawnym winem. W smaku zdecydowanie wytrawny, nieznaczna kwiatowa słodycz jest tu tylko tłem dla kwaskowo-estrowych smaków, będących wynikiem pracy drożdży. Dodatek siana i różowego pieprzu na finiszu uzupełniają głogową niedużą goryczkę. Nagazowanie wysokie, szampańskie, odczucie lekkie. Bardzo sesyjne, zwiewne piwo od zakonników z Belgii idealnie pasuje na ciepłe, letnie dni. Kwaskowo-kwiatowe akcenty i duże nasycenie to charakterystyczne cechy tego wytrawnego "belga".

Andrew196 (1762) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Cloudy, golden tope in color. Earthen, slightly spicy malt aroma. It all sort of dwindles into an underwhelming experience from here. Boring finish of apples and pears.
