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.

Bottle. Somewhat hazy gold with a thick white head that lasts OK and laces well. Floral aroma with nectarines, dough, oranges. Sweet and yeasty/ fruity with a finish that dries out a bit and is moderately bitter and herbal. A bit like an attempt at an Orval knockoff with no Brett. Quite good, refreshing.

Bweurk. Dit is een onwaarschijnlijk flauw bier, met wat hop en chemisch smakende suikers ergens halverwege. Het smaakt zoals het heet: een strop rond je nek.

1,5 l bottle shared. Appearance: Slightly hazy light yellow body, with a rough large bubbly head which leaves some lacing. Aroma: Cirtus, light soapy, some yeast and coriander. Taste: Light sweet,, light bitter, light malts, yeast a bit citrus,apricots and soap and some coriander.. Low carbonation, medium body. Dangerous easy drinker. Nothing rarem, harsh or offensive, simpley said a nice one espescially in big bottles to share with friends.

Not directly a beer I will remember. Good, but not good enough to stand out.

markschiedon (681) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma hops, citrus and alcohol. The clear golden beer has a medium white head. In the taste citrus, alcohol, some sour. High carbonated.

Skinnyviking (9550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle at home. High fluffy lasting white head. Hazy yellow milky body. Acidic fruity spicy aroma. Acidic lemon clove coriander nutmeg flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, high carbonation and a long dry and bitter finish.

Serapac (470) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle. Slightly cloudy yellow, smaller white head. Aroma typical Belgian yeast. Taste floral with hints of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belle robe blonde, mousse crémeuse. Nez agréable sur des notes fruitées, houblonnées et citronnées. Bouche à l’attaque ample, de la fraîcheur, du fruit et de l’amertume en finale. Une belle blonde équilibrée, de soif.

Rubin77 (2028) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 6, 2016
F: big, white, good retention. C: pale gold, light hazy. A: malt, fruity, apple, pear, grassy, hint of cheese. T: malt, apple, grassy floral bitterness, creamy mouthfeel, yeasty, herbal, spicy, medium body, lively carbonation, not bad but easy forgettable beer, but good balanced, 0,33cl bottle from Delhaize @ Schaerbeek in Brussels.

KoNrRiI (1485) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A delicately hazy, light gold color with a medium, somewhat creamy, white head of good retention leaving decent lacing. Aroma of pale malts, some metal, and... not much else. Taste is yeasty, delicately, somewhat sour. A medium body, a slick texture, and an above average carbonation. Finish is short and insipid. All in all the beer is mediocre at best.
