To simple for belgian style. Good aroma, but taste vary similar to lager. And there is no balance. jasonbenali (202) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Pours a cloudy yellow to amber with lively white head.
Aroma is straw, caramel, orange, touch of coriander, grape and mango. Taste is better than the aroma and is more complex, with some sweetness, some sourness and a medium tart, sour and soapy finish. Very dry.
A little disappointed with this one, but I’m not a fan of sourness in beers. thellgren (1062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2016
0.75 l bottle with a plastic champagne cork from Systembolaget in Stockholm. Appearance is cloudy dark yellow with a big head. Taste has sweet yeast in a Belgian way combined with bitter hops. A modern take on the Belgian blond bier, where you can taste some hops too. Label design has changed from the one pictured here. BeardedAvenger (795) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2016

Surprisingly full, but sharpish mouthfeel. A little iodic aftertaste but all in all very nice. Toxophilly (26) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Gotta love the bottle. Admittedly this is not a graphic design reviews website, but it all adds to the experience.
Pours with a lively carbonation forming large bubbles, and already a funky aroma I hadn’t expected is making my mouth water. Body is an almost opaque rusty brown. Some swirling resurrects the head with smaller bubbles.
Aroma is yeasty, like the CO2 blast you get lifting the lid off a live fermenter. The aroma does say "Belgian", but not in the hugely overt way of - for example - some tripels.
In the mouth it is surprisingly refreshing for 6.5%, as the description claims. Carbonation is tingly on the tongue but not as violent as the bubbles suggested. The finish is a lingering crisp, clean bitterness reminiscent of a golden ale.
I could almost see this as a Delirium Tremens lite, and it fulfills the brewer’s mission: a "companion throughout the evening ... rich in taste yet refreshing". hauxe (761) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2016
Pours hazy gold from the bottle and leaves a thick, foamy head and light soapy lacing. Aroma is a bouquet of tropical fruit with the mango dominating. Taste is fruity but lightly bitter with strong notes of overripe tangerine. Light spice going into the finish. Body is medium with adequate carbonation. Overall good if unexceptional. zvikar (6172) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016
Orange, small head, marmalade aroma, strawberry, apricot, fruity, bitter flavor, apricot, fruity, orange, peach, carbonated, pleasant, medium bodied. jjsint (3105) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle from BrewDog online shop. Gold, cloudy with a large foamy white head. White grape juice with an earthy yeast in the enticing aroma. Tart taste with just enough sweetness to take the edge off. Highly carbonated with a short finish. Champagne and a light vegetal note in the aftertaste. Simple, understated and sublime.
