SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. A bit yeasty and thick in the mouth, with a little sugary sweetness balancing a firm herbal an floral hop flavor finishing with a lasting bitterness. Some fruitiness that is more the yeast than hops, and shows a but of banana. Quite hazy. good but not as good of a hop and yeast combo as the last hoppy Belgian style ale I had from them. This one might be a touch too bitter as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Darrell for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing well filtered whitish yellow with no head. The nose shows round sweet malts with a light Belgian yeast. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. Moderately tart with a strong Belgian influence forwardness and a white wine bitterness on the finish.

JorisPPattyn (9666) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Fluffy, just yellowish head, not very lasting over clear golden, well-carbonated beer when pouring. Flowery, slightly citrussy/lemony aroma, delicate, with blossomy hops, with a slight ureum/spicy touch. Bitterish hops with EU character, with a harsher lupulin/greenery finish. Dry, poor-soil grass. Very slightly vinous, dry wine. Light body, low to medium carbonation in the end. Bit slick. Easy drinking ale, the nose being very inviting. Many thanks to Vinnie, the RRcrew, and of course the Vermeersch emissionaries!

deyholla (10688) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle thanks to Adam, thanks! Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of grass and hay with a bit of cookie and sweet grains underlying. Flavor has some bitter citrus with earthy grass and a good amount of grass and hay backing.

SinH4 (3641) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle, many thanks amazinwrldfood. Hazy yellow color with nice white head. Aroma is fresh spicy yeasts, feels very Belgian, bananas. Taste is fruity and spicy yeasts, some bananas and other estery fruits, quite hoppy as well. Rather high, but fine-bubbled foamy carbonation. A classic take on the Belgian Blond style - high carbonation, estery fruits, and spicy yeasts. Probably comparable to Duvel, just a bit lighter and more easy-going.

ciocanelu (1724) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 16, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2016 Slightly hazy straw color with white head. Aroma has really nice stonefruit yeast esters. Taste starts with grass, a bit of lime, melon, really estery but somehow clean and fresh. Light body with high effervescence but also feels quite soft on the palate. This is a great, easy drinking belgian style ale.

Ritzn (757) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2016
Hazy yellow with little white head. Aroma is green stuff, grapes, some fruits. Taste is grape, citric sourness, with some hoppy bitterness, some juice as well. Full body, pleasant mouthfeel, still easy to drink. Ok.
