JoeinDahlem (1468) - Berlin, - SEP 10, 2012
Sparkling and clear pale blonde strong ale with more than a hint of orange peel in the nose. Has a moderate, confident bitterness and matching sweetness, very lively, end off-dry. Bittersweet aftertaste. Impressive.

TrefwoordPunk (1012) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a light, pale yellow with a medium to big white head and an aroma of citrus hops, malts, malts, white grapes and apples. The taste is medium sweet with a fizzy carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. I would say this is a triple, but not too special for that style.

Holmen1 (5103) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2016
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, p hytta: klar, lys gylden med fint skum som varer. Overkarbonert, brusende munnflelse, men aroma og smak kommer allikevel godt fram. Honning, citrus, sommerblomster og litt krydder fra gjren. Lett og elegant bitterhet i avslutningen.

teddybeer (3526) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2016
Golden color, white head with medium lasting. Aroma has spicy notes, belgian yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning, yeasty, some bready notes. Light bitterness in the final. High carbonation.

jbruner (4213) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of mild Belgian yeast, musty earth, and oxidation. Taste is like a big boozy Belgian lager that is oxidized. This is horrible, and Duvel fucked up not copyrighting the name in Belgium.

Ysok02 (1125) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2016
Robe blonde, mousse abondante. Nez simple sur des notes de farine, de levures, de houblon. Bouche tout aussi simple, lgrement fruite, peu persistante. Banale

WD_Master (13) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2016
Appearance is hazy blond with a disappearing head. Aroma is sweet, taste is wheat. A bit too blend for me.

kaserov (294) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2016
Floja floja. Color amarillo ultra claro. Casi sidroso. Espuma que dura ms bien poco. Sabor insulso. No apetece dar ms de dos o tres tragos. Su nico punto a favor es que apenas se notan los 8 grados.
