HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Nose has some light apple, a bit of spices. This is more pronounced on the palate, which is white wine like in its crisp dryness and only minor sweet pear and apple notes accentuated by pepper. Overall, a lighter drinking beer than the style or ABV would imply; I kind of think my score undersells the beer a bit, but its just not robust enough to merit higher marks.

Zarrach76 (122) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2016
Blonde paille translucide, surmonte dune mousse blanche fine qui disparait rapidement. Le nez est alcoolis, bien malt, trs caramlis et modrment houblonn. Les armes sont droits, peu complexes, ports sur le sucre et les crales. Typique du style. En bouche, pas de surprise : le got est franc mais pas si sucr, plus port sur lamertume que le nez. Cest dailleurs cette pointe damertume qui embellit cette bire. Carbonatation moyenne faible. Larrire bouche est assez intriguant, avec des gots de fromage (brie) pas inintressants, sans doute une squelle des levures utilises. On ne retrouve par contre pas de gots fruits, cette bire est vraiment base sur les crales. Lalcool est au final un poil trop prsent... Bire trs standard, sans doute un peu trop, mais buvable. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

TEJA (2622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle shared by Dan n thanks. Lasting light pink head over a clear red amber color. Big almond aroma but just a tuch of cherries. Sweet and a bit artificial sweetner taste.

PintjeFritz (242) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2016
No detail information about the hops and malts on the label. Clear golden beer with small white head, yeast is dominated, typical Belgian Style, thin, I miss here the body and the character from this beer, light herb, finish is very short, (I have 0.33l bottle with best-before L16/06/17 13:59)

Une trs bonne bire, un houblon clair et un got relev font de cette bire, une excellente bire pour ma part. Avec 8.5 de degr elle sapprcie sa juste valeur !

Evilman (160) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2016
Meh. This is not a bad beer, Id say its trying to be a good belgian one, but it fails shortly to deliver something really pleasant to me. Alcohol level is interesting, but too present in mouth in my opinion. I cant really enjoy this beer for that specific reason. Aftertaste is not especially remarkable, once again, a strong alcohol feeling all the way, but not much more, it tends to surprise you however considering its surprisingly drinkable beside the average taste, so watch out. You might like it, its not bad, especially if you enjoy strong beers, but its definitely not my cup of tea. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. clear deep gold colour lasting white head. sweetish Belgian ale aroma. Its fine. A standard Belgian ale. No faults. Some hop some sweetness. Its fine. Nothing exciting but perfectly drinkable. Would happily drink it.

Une bonne surprise ! Petite dception au service car elle mousse trs peu mais a tout de mme une belle couleur. 2me dception au nez, trs peu darmes. Par contre excellente surprise en bouche. Une belle touche citronne, des bulles agrables, relativement sucre et bien houblonne. Manque peut-tre un peu de corps mais cela lui donne une certaine lgret. Belle longueur qui rvle une belle amertume, bref jaime bien cette bire.
