UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Biondo oro limpido ed intenso, massiccio cappello di schiuma bianca. Aroma dolce e speziato, sentori di caramello, agrumi, vaniglia e miele; gusto dolciastro e maltoso con note di arancia, miele, toffee e un tocco erbaceo e luppolato nel finale. Corposa e frizzante, un curioso incrocio tra una Tripel, una ale natalizia e una Saison... esperimento riuscito! sheep (93) - FINLAND - MAR 3, 2013
330ml bottle, bbe 31/01/2015. This one is a gusher. Shoots out of the bottle in a dirty dark orange colour and forms a big, dense white head. Aromas is floral, some hay/grass, slightly earthy, citrusy orange notes, sweet caramel. Taste is yeasty and fruity esters, wheaty banana and slightly spicy with a citrusy freshness in the finish. Big and airy carbonation, mouthfeel is soft and rich. Very loyal to its Belgian roots, not bad at all. Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 13, 2013

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a hazy yellow with a massive head. Over carbonated. Aromas of cloves, lemon zest and spices. Taste has a doughy zesty up front flavour. Quite sweet and tart. The sweetness hides The booze. Sitting on 9.2%. Mild citrus in the finish with a mild bitterness. Goes down well for the high alcohol percentage

Opened with a geyser of foam, then poured with a massive head.
Nose shows heavy spicy phenols, Belgian doughy yeast notes, soft light malt and very faint pear.
Flavours include sharp, solvent-like booze, doughy yeast and light sweet malt.
Excessively carbonated and too much booze. hawthorne00 (3946) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a large white head that fades to a coat. Aroma of dough, lemon pudding, vanilla, oranges, cloves. Sweet with pungent spices. Some stone fruits, candi sugar, tangy lemon, vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper. No overt alcohol. Near enough to Dulle Teve meets Avec les Bon Voeux. Very nice indeed. gam (3924) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2012

Tasted from bottle into a rocks glass at the Royale gathering, thanks Will! A little-known Italian beer described as being similar to the De Dolle Belgian yeast strain. Translation = delicious. It poured a cloudy golden color with lasting white foam, nice lace. Aromas and flavors of freshly-cut grass, husky grains, some marshmallowy pils malt, rising dough, freshly-baked French bread, slight flowery/spicy hops (Saaz?), and subdued but complex Belgian yeast characteristics: vanilla, black pepper, bubble gum, clove, compost, over-ripe apricots, herbal tea tannins. 9.5% alcohol but very well-hidden. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, simultaneously smooth and grainy mouthfeel, some nice mineral water hardness. Long-lasting, multi-layered aftertaste. Unpretentious yet amazingly good.

Bottle. A hzy dark blonde beer, with a gigantic, frothy, almost fully lasting, white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of peach, pepper, alcohol, candy sugar. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety, lightly sticky texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Above the average in every department, just very short of the excellence that is particularly proper to the Blond, but also Zest and Saison. Anyawy quite complex and challenging, with the correct amount of alcoholic feel.
