ErikTheViking (76) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2008
Golden with white head. Aroma: Lots of hops, very fruity with hints of citrus , very sweet (very Belgian). Even though it was a quite sunny day, I think it works better on an even sunnier day. I prefer Grimbergen dubbel to this one.

Holy lacing and head on this one. It is now sitting on the table near me and I am getting the citrus aroma. The lacing is crazy though, very impressive and worth a high appearance grade. Very sweet, almost like drinking a lemon with sugar spread over it. I pick up a lot of orange and a slight wheat taste. I liked this a lot but could probably only have a couple before getting a turned stomach. I also pick up a slight tinny taste on the back of the palate. Also, as I go on a bit too sweet and fruity.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JUL 15, 2008
Clear golden with a creamy white cap. Sweet faint maltiness, metallic, with a metallic sour flavour. Tasteless.

3.2
kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2008
33cl from Kingdom Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a slightly hazy dark golden caramel color with a thick and frothy off-white head that settles slowly and provides heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of fresh flowers, spice, bread and yeast. Flavor is malt, bready, yeast, slightly sour ripe fruit and notes of malty sweetness like caramel and honey. Light to medium body with a quick, uninteresting finish. Overall, nice ale.

2.8
CH-303 (2252) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Appearance: Orangy golden. Quite a lot of white head. Aroma: Lemon and some yeast. Flowery. Taste: Quite dry. Some fruit and flowers. Hoppy. Lemony. Info: 330ml bottle, 25/7-2007

shanepardue (110) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Pours clearly golden with a thin, white head. Weak flavor of sweat honey. Light beer in general. Not too crazy about it.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2008
Bottle. Clear gold and sweet taste, just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Goes down nice and smooth though, my favorite grimbergen.

anotherpint (5) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2008 does not count
Served bottled. Barely hazy blonde with a large pillowy head and no yeast sediment. Carbonation is well balanced and subtle. Aroma is exotic and sweet, pale vanilla and nutmeg, white raisins and a touch of yeasts. Flavor is extremely sweet and bright, reminding me of light caramel and dried peaches or apricot. Aftertaste was my least favorite feature, leaving my mouth feeling syrupy from the sweetness of the flavor. Definitely a good beer, but if you prefer bitters, be warned that it is very sweet.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Mighty tastey brew, pours a slightly hazey orange-yellow colour with a quite large fluffy head that sticks around for a logn time. very pleasent in taste as well with peace and apricot flavors. Overall, sweet with a supple finish, a modest 6% abv.
