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.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is spicy, some yeast as well. Taste is balanced, light citrus, with a mild spicy note. Dry finish.

mile (4052) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, some fruitiness and light spiciness (coriander, light pepper). Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and some fruitiness, faint spiciness. Finish is average, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light fruitiness, some spiciness and light alcohol. Lightly sweetish strong ale – nothing special here.

Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13: uklar gylden med højt belgisk skum. Mye krydder i aroma og smak + typisk innslag av belgisk gjær. Helhetsinntrykk: litt ufrisk, særlig i ettersmaken.

Sigmund (7916) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
330 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 6.9%. Hazy pale golden colour, large to moderate white head. Typical Belgian ale yeast aroma, mild spicy notes. Refreshing flavour, not too sweet, hints of white kandij sugar and mild herbal notes. Nice and drinkable.

Fine beer with a beautiful fluffy white head. Cloves, honey and echinaforce. That last one in a good way, bet this beer cures much more than that stuff. Bottle from the little Mitra in Mijdrecht.

Grzesiek79 (4435) - Radom, POLAND - APR 10, 2013
Znakomite, dobre i pachnace swiezoscia piwo. Z piekna mocna i poskrecana piana. Utrzymuje sie prawie do konca degustacji. Pachnie chmielem trunek, znakomity w smaku, jasny zloty i bardzo wytrawno-gozki. Chmiele najlepsze dominuja i rzada smakiem. Skromna etykieta kryje wspaniale piwo ale z Belgii. Polecam.
