ilovedarkbeer (2733) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Overall pretty good. Tastes very belgian in a sense that it has a bit of a tripel taste to it. Pours a golden yellow color with a thin fizzy head that dissapates quickly. Tastes somewhat sour and bitter with notes of grass and caramel. Ok just a little watery.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Light orange color with aromas of honey and malt with just a note of wet cardboard. Flavor is fairly sweet with more honey notes and more wet cardboard, little hint of bitterness in the finish.

FatPhil (15560) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 330ml bottle. (6:3:8:4:15=3.6)
Light orange, thick fluffy head. Dusty and yeasty theme to an otherwise sweet malty aroma. Very mellow malty taste with subtle back-of-the-mouth hops, and with a fairly long but gently malty finish. Alcohol is nicely subdued. Nothings exceptional, but I really cant find any fault with this at all.
Rerate: Tap (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
Nope, cant fault the taste, even though I want to hate InBev, this is still very tasty and extremely drinkable
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Ristiisa, Tartu) (6:4:7:4:13=3.4)
Again, fairly pleasant dullish belgian blond aroma, but the taste again is good, and its again highly drinkable. Textbook, almost cookie-cutter belgian blond. Theyve taken it, and filed off all the sharp corners, which alas also means all of the real character too. Soft sweet malts, gentle perfumey hops. Dang, I cant ever dislike this, Im sure.

TallGuy (17) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Glass: Duvel Tulip. Six pack bottles purchased from Aberdeen Proving Grounds Class Six.. (Aberdeen, MD, USA) Smells sweet and slightly bitter. Gold color with nice/smooth head. Medium Sweet and Sour flavor. Lively palate.

adriancscott (16) - London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle: Trappist Glass. It has a nice aroma with yeast and a hint of fruit. The head is great and it lingers which is nice to savour with great laceing on the glass, but sometimes the head lingers too long and can be thick to drink through. The taste is not the best for an abbey beer. It has a bitter/sweet aftertaste, with a very corbonous texture. Still a nice beer from Belgium.

blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2007
bottle poured in a tulip glass, orange blond in color with a fluffy head on the beer. smell is real yeasty, sweet fruit, and some grassy wheat notes. taste is heavy on the yeasts, has some creamy malts, somewhat rich, and finishes smooth. good beer but just not a fan of heavy yeast beers like this one.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 strong yeast aroma, smells of dry hay. flavor opens up like a fog up the nose and is full bodied and finishes dry. fantastic. 081810 Im picking up on some of the clove notes, great lively carbonation and a picturesque rocky white head. Strong honeyed wheat notes, more one dimensional than before.

obguthr (6177) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Strawberry and banana bouquet, not terribly strong. Clear yellow, very thick head. Salty and grainy initially with some barley notes, sweet citrus at midpalate. Decent hop finish. Nice transitions. Speaking as someone not fond of the belgian styles, this is a reasonably good gateway to Belgiian beers. Its cheap and isnt overpowering. This should be everyones first Belgian.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours clear, yellow, with a huge, fine head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is fruity with qualities of banana, citrus, and apple. Very sweet. Mouth feel is moderate.

Drake (13301) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours orangish-gold with a fairly long-lasting head. Aroma is fruity, with wheat and banana coming through. Tasted a bit off. Standard blonde ale taste, with a sweet aftertaste (and beforetaste) that is not pleasant. Otherwise, a fairly easily drinkable beer.
