COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 22/06/2017 Pours a big billowing white head atop a hazy straw body. Grainy aroma - doughy yeast, spicy white pepper & clove phenolcs, touch of pear ester. Creamy body, nice & full, lifted carbonation. Body is spicy - pepper, lemon, grass, floral notes, pear & apple, touch of white sugar sweetness. Lifted bitterness for style, touch of warmth on finish. Bit rough around the edges, nice flavours still.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 13, 2016
,33l pour from refrigerated bottle into glass in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Pours slightly hazy, pale gold, huge foamy head. Nose is floral, hint of fruity sweetness, hint of grass. Body is medium and smooth with a dry finish. Taste echos the nose with more sweetness up front and a slightly bitter finish. Milder than I would have expected, though, and a bit dull.

ForlornHope (488) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours golden in colour with a white head. Not much aroma, some yeast and hop. Taste is slightly sweet to start, then bitter. Flavours of juicy malt and herbal bitterness. Quite delicate and floral in body, but the bitterness is a little unbalanced. OK, not great.

Shark_Pants (716) - AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a brilliant clear gold with voluminous aerated fluffy white head. Very belgian character in the aroma - clove, earthy funky yeast, floral honey, cracked grains and some grassy hop notes. The taste has a grainy bread maltiness, some earthy funk, light honey and candi sugar sweetness, grassy hop bitterness, spicy. Long dry finish. Light bodied and acidic bite makes it pop. Quite well balanced and enjoyable.
