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.

Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 23, 2015
Trockener, mild bitterer Antrunk. Die leichte Hefigkeit wirkt kraftlos, wird aber schnell würziger. Hell bleibend, zitronig, weich. Gut trinkbar. 9/9/10/8/5/8

Fruity, honey, lemon/citrus in particular.

A clear golden/yellow beer with a persistent white head.

Fruity, honey, again the lemon/citrus. Overall a really nice balance, though not really complex.

Bottle shared by Roman (no kidding). Clear golden with fluffy white head. Yeasty, light lemon, quite spicy, honey and sweet malts. Quite herbal too and a soft yoghurt touch. Medium sweet with light to medium bitter finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

Licht van kleur met een forse schuimkop. Geur is wat citroenig, smaak is licht, citroen komt hier in door, weinig spectaculair

rikstar (2604) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015

18/04/2015, 33cl bottle @De Linde, Melden. Golden colour with nice head. Aroma & taste : Fruity hops, sweetness, a bit too much for my like. Very easy drinking.

prawlie (1633) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Golden, gassy, big head. Saaz hops, straw in the aroma. Clean, tasty ale, I’d happily have it again.
