33 cl bottle @ home. Pale yellow colour with an orange shine, and a lasting white head. Sweet and yeasty aroma, full of carbonation. Taste is bitter with some sourness, and the palate is a bit watery. Syfher (418) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge.
Usual pils, with nice taste and aroma. Nothing more to say kraddel (8116) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear blonde, Ok to small whtie head. Smell is sweet,malty but also got some different characters I don’t really recognize. Taste is intense, yet elegant yeastyness with fruity aspects ( not overripe fruit ) a fine fruity hoparoma as well that pairs nothing less than perfectly with the rather aromatic yeast. Light level of bitterness, yet the bitterness is there. Lovely in balance. Even though tripels will never be my favorite beerstyle, this one deffinately is worthy of being called very good !

Bottle at home. Pours a deep golden colour with a white head that soon disappears. Very slight aroma of orangey hop. Taste is sweet to start, then slightly bitter. Slight citrus taste, thin finish. OK at best.

Poured light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and light Belgian yeast. Light body, flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter. Icedwarf (1657) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hopppig met een ondertoon van zuur fruit, citrus en koriander. Smaak blijft lang hangen. mjik83 (1576) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2015

One of those old-fashioned remnants of Belgian brewing history, according to a recipe dating from 1887, when beers were not as ambitious as they are now - hence the ’daily’ and simple character of this one. Nice session beer nonetheless, golden blonde with a creamy head and spicy hoppy finish. I’d prefer this over a standard lager any day. mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2014
Heel mooie beschrijving bij dit bier, maar ik vond het een bier met nogal weinig smaak aan
