Cloudy pale gold body with a bright egg shell colored head. The aroma has funky pears along with some cinnamon and leather hints. The taste has some sweet biscuit and hay notes. There is also some canned peaches in the finish. More straw like than fruity, this also has some herbal hints in the finish. Decent with a highly carbonated body.

On tap at Moeder Lambic. Pours bright yellow-gold with thick, creamy, off-white head. Nose is citrus and herbal, maybe lemon and orange zest and coriander. Lightly sweet flavor, mild bitterness, aromatic backdrop of lemon, lemongrass, and that herbal-vegetal character. Light and soft in the mouth. Refreshing, but I’m not wild about that herbal bit.

33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, easy to drink beer, hazy, good head, nice brew Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 19, 2008
Bottled. A cloudy dark golden beer with a medium sized but immediatly collapsing white head. Lots of sediments. Not bad but rather simple malt aroma with light hoppy, fruity and spicy notes. A hint of alcohol too. The flavour has a medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavours seem not totally refined. Soft mouthfeel, light to medium body, lively carbonation, quite short finish with light to medium bitterness. Not bad, soft, unoffensive (perhaps too much) ale. Average for a Belgian micro.

Appearance: golden color. Medium head with white color, dense and lasting.
Aroma: light sweet smelts from malts and some yeasty. Spicy and citric aromas from hoops, with reminiscences of herbs, eucalyptus and grapefruits.
Flavor: light sweetness start from pale malts, spicy progress with reminiscences of ginger, coriander and other herbs. Some citric-dry notes similar to grapefruits and orange peel. Light and lasting hoopy-dryness final. Gingery aftertaste.
Palate: light to medium body and medium carbonation.
Remark: decent blond ale, but the “ginger-touch” of some De Graal beers is repetitive.

750 ml bottle from Liquid Solutions. Aroma of light funk, citrus and floral. Slightly hazy orange tinged color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is fruity (apricot?), yeasty, lightly funky, hint of malty. Finish is very clean, and tending towards dry. It’s really quite a taste treat.

Een heerlijke geur verspreid dit bier. het is wel een echte belg een beetje bitter nasmaak. DocLock (10745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
750 ml bottle from State Line. Pours turbid canary with 3 fingers of fluffy white head. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrus, some funky yeasty notes, and some perfumy florals. The flavor is just OK, with notes of malt, honey, apricotty fruit, hopcitrus, slight yeasty funk, and florals. This one, to me, just didn’t taste very good at all, and the balance seemed way off. The nose wasn’t bad, but the taste was rather bland.
