Proud, headstrong, full of character. Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, gave all these attributes to the rebellious Ghent stroppendragers or noose-wearers. And what goes for the people of Ghent also goes for this strong blonde beer. Nose/aromas: Relatively complex nose with hints of fruit (banana, citrus fruits), herbs, yeast, honey and sweet malt. Flavour: Refreshing in the mouth, pleasant sweet malty attack followed by hints of herbs and yeast, medium-long finish with subtle, slightly bitter touch.

Blond yellow pale colour. Easy drinkable blond ale. Bitter with some fruitiness (grapefruit) and a metallic aftertaste (typical for Roman).

Un amricain dit gentiment de cette bire quelle est une des seules quil ait bue dans les bires belges tre sous-value sur ratebeer. Cest trs aimable de le souligner de sa part. Le seul problme est quil la sous-value lui-mme en la cotant 4.... Donc reprenons les choses au dpart. La brasserie Roman fait partie des Belgian Family Brewers, et connait donc son mtier, puisque toutes les brasseries de ce groupement sont trs anciennes. Ensuite si vous reprenez mes cotations pour la Ename triple ou la Sloeber, vous comprendrez que lon est en prsence de srieux dans la ralisation.... Couleur dor moyen lger, brillance trs jolie. Clart nette, pure, cristalline. Bulles magnifiques en fontaine au centre du verre, trs vives. Mousse blanche un peu beige, bien paisse et trs crmeuse. Armes de houblon, amertume noble, avec une pointe de citron et de bl dt au vent. 1re bouche de texture douce, trs belle entre sur les crales et le houblon. Arrire-bouche frache, pure, distingue. 2me bouche avec des notes de fruits blancs, de pain blanc, avec de fines pices. Arrire-bouche trs fine. 3me bouche sur les agrumes, avec une petite pointe de fculent et du houblon trs fin. Arrire-bouche noble. Longueur dune trs jolie blonde, avec du caractre et de la saveur. Levure dune superbe veine trs douce, classe, pure, dune trs grande finesse. Alcool bien pour une blonde de base. Finale tout fait clean, brillante. Une bire sans reproche, ce qui est dj pas mal, mais si on ajoute sans peur, comme une fier gents bier, alors cest magnifique...

MiP (15479) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle, 6.9% at K13. Mild spicy aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is mild and spicy, coriander and all that. Reminds me more of a wit than a blond, but less refreshing than a wit, I suppose.

Bosskie (870) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2013
Pale hay colour with nice carbonation, clear and a generous frothy head. Dry hayish smell, white pepper and citrics and saltiness and very subtle fruitiness. Taste is a bit too mouty with a watery tartness and a dry finish. Not much definition. Salty.

abemorsten (3593) - Mostery, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Shared bottle at a local tasting. Misty golden with a small white head leaving good lacing. Belgian ale yeast spicy tones on the nose. Sharp mouth, medium bodied grows on the mouth. Acidic, watery, stale, light sweet.

TrefwoordPunk (1121) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy, pale golden with large, firm, white head. Aroma has yeast, spices, fish, raw vegetables and hops. Taste is medium to quite sweet, medium bitter. Feels soft and full on the palate, medium body, medium carbonation. I dont really like this, but its not undrinkable.

paulvanpelt (610) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2013
Nevelig, bleekgoud bier met grote, stevige, witte kraag. Aroma is gist, specerijen, fruit, hop. Smaak is medium tot flink zoet, medium bitter. Voelt zacht en vol in de mond, medium body, medium co2. Misschien niet heel bijzonder, maar wel een lekkere doordrinker.
