COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a strong blonde beer, full of character with tertiary fermentation in the bottle yet still very accessible. Alc. 8% vol. Taste: The traditional Grimbergen recipe is enriched here trough the use of aromatic hops, which gives the beer its refined bitterness and hoppy character. The result is a refreshingly strong blonde beer.

Banzale (192) - FRANCE - DEC 16, 2016
Acheter à tabac&co dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur dorée bien translucide ! Belle mousse bien présente et aéré qui reste bien . Au nez : sensation de miel et d’épices ainsi que des levures ! Notes trop présente limite agressif. En bouche : la note épicé et présente ! Même trop ! Trop marquer ! Le miel arrive allégé le tout ! Je la trouve trop attaquante. Le corps ce barre dans tout les sens . Ça se tien pas !

MartR (336) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2016
Looks light golden and hazy. Spicy and sourish aroma. Belgian spiciness continues in taste adding fruits, honey and a bit of lemon. Definitely hops present and even mild bitterness detectable. Mainly sourish honey and spices. Alcohol well covered, no hint of 8% anywhere. Refreshingly strong blonde beer seems accurate.

Gurthnar (5379) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle from Drinkshop. Spicy lemony aroma, but rather mild in intensity. Clear golden colour. Large white head, big bubbles, quite quickly disappearing. Moderate bitterness, dry impression, spicy, lemony. Does not come through as overly hoppy, the hops are implemented carefuly as to introduce subtle citrusy and herbal notes. Quite good, though the drinkability is lower despite high carbonation.

tricksta_p (4035) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of yeast, malt, fruity notes, apples, slight spicy notes. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a light bitter finish. Slightly boozy. Body is medium. Not bad for a Grimbergen beer.
