brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
A slightly hazed pale yellow color with a white head. Smells a bit like lemon cleaning solution. Orange peel, some faint straw, and a hint of pale malt sweetness. The flavor is very citric and lightly tart. Some lemon sourness, a bit of orange peel, and a light bitterness. Slight apple, a hint of solvent, and a bit abrasive on the finish.

Espuma blanquecina que permanece, color amarillo con tonos dorados transparente donde se aprecia la fina burbuja brotar constantemente, aroma ligero en nariz, sabor suave para la graduacin donde se aprecia la gasificacin.

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017

Gouky (23) - SPAIN - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2017 Color amarillo claro y espuma media. No tiene mucho aroma. Sabor ctrico y floral con un toque muy ligero de lpulo. Demasiado carbonatada y el alcohol se nota un poco.

Rugamu (169) - SPAIN - JAN 12, 2017
Para ser una cerveza belga sabe demasiado a lpulo, rozando una IPA. La sensacin floral y ctrica se intenta mezclar sin conseguirlo con un estilo belga. Si puedo no repito.

TrefwoordPunk (1072) - 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 (5474) - 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 (3688) - 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 (4446) - 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 (1313) - 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
