A good "session" Belgian pale. Pale hazy gold, good firm head, good lacing. Nose of citrus, yeast, bread. Taste of citrus and yeast with a spicy finish. Gangstergafje (1358) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2017

The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice silky look, because of the nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. Foam retention is quite good.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is a nice Belgian Ale smell. It is spicy, robust and bold. I smell some nice malty aromas at first, giving a nice sweetness. Besides this, there is a lovely fruity aroma. I smell some orange, some zest and touches of koriander and other spices. There is also a floral touch. The floral and coriander touches seem hop derived. I like those hoppy touches. Pairs lovely with the malts.
The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste some nice malty base tones, with some fruity flavours. I also taste nice bitter hops, with some zesty citrus and floral flavours, with a touch of spiciness. All is very well balanced. I like it.
The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, smooth and a nice medium carbonation. The finish of the beer has a nice fruitiness, together with some bitter hops and a spicy touch. All in all, a lovely beer. Traditionally Belgium, but with more power and kick. It isn’t stuck in tradition, but leaves room for development. I love it. Great work. note666 (1316) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012

Bottle. Pale blonde. Aroma is malts and damp cellar. Crisp beer, refreshing, green grapes and drying quality. Palate is oily hops. A decent blonde, not terribly characteristic, but enjoyable nonetheless. It’s good, but not as remarkable as it’s big brother 12 or the Biere Brut.

This beer has quite a bit of bang for its alcohol content. There is some honey and malty spiciness, but it all comes together with a fabulous crisp belgian yeastiness. Some oxidized hop flavors in the background, but understandable due to expiry date almost 2 years past. Very enjoyable. Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2003
Clear blond beer with a big white head. The aroma is rubber, urine, fruit and some hop. Light bitter hoppy taste. Rather dry bitter finish. Long dry aftertaste. JanEric (1250) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012
Dark blonde, small dense head. Aroma has some sweets, like honey. Reasoanble bitter taste, some soapy by-taste, medium to full bodied, reasonable finish.
