erickok (5858) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Extremely pale body, large bubbly head. Soft lemony, faint grassy, light sweet (American style) bread. Soft bitter yet some sharp tasting notes too. Much less nice and refined as expected. In fact almost watery. Huge disappointment. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

ardeo (339) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2015
Bire blonde de chez Ommegang dnomme Charles Quint / Keizer Karel et produisant une belle mousse. La bouche est agrable, pas agressive et pour cette raison, elle plait mon pouse ! Jaime bien aussi mais nen boirai pas tous les jours. Dailleurs, il y a tellement de bires belges (puis les autres ensuite) goter que je risque de passer ct de trsors dors.
