Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

Sweet/sour aroma with some candy sugar, citrus, and a little funk. Flavor starts sweet with caramel, toffee, and fruit. Finish has some hop bitterness and drying alcohol. Really good.

330ml bottle. Hazy amber pour, small retentive white head. Nose is malty, hoppy citrus notes, mild phenols, peach, fruity notes. Flavor is malts forward, light hoppiness, less fruity than the nose. Alcohol in the finish with phenols and hops. SImplistic, but not bad.

Tap @ Het elfde gebod, Amsterdam. Ruikt zoetig bloemig en naar honing. Geel beetje doorzichtige kleur met redelijke koolzuur. Smaakt krachteloos zoet. Dat is ook meteen zijn kryptonite. Smaakt lekker naar honing met zachte bitter op het eind maar red het net niet helemaal op zijn eigen kracht.

Shared a bottle at home with Rabo. A very good Belgian ale, very smooth taste. Also a very good aftertaste.

Robe blonde légèrement voilée. Très pétillante visuellement et à l’oreille. Mousse blanche très mouvante, col de mousse qui retombe en écume. Nez généreux, fruité, floral et malté. Légèrement métallique. Bouche où domine la banane, fort levurée, douce, caramel avant que ne monte une amertume herbacée un peu âpre. Final doux-amer. Carbonatation assez vive. Corpulence moyenne à épaisse. Blonde qui affiche une douceur fort affirmée avant de la couper avec une amertume âpre. Dominent allègrement la levure et ses notes de banane.

Drank with Rik and Patrick @ Cafe Jos 30-6-17. Not bad for a belgian ale ordinary blond beer. Quite the comprehensive taste.

Bouteille 33. Orange claire à mousse blanche. Odeurs : malt, pain, grain, fruits jaunes, très léger fumé en fin de dégustation. Saveurs : malt, biscuit, levures, fruits, un peu de sel. Moyenne amertume sympathique. Une bière gouleyante très agréable à boire (fraîche !). Une brasserie que je ne connaissais pas !

Robe blonde, mousse crémeuse et persistante. Nez typé sur des notes de houblon, de malt, de fruits jaunes, pointe de levure. Bouche tout en fruit et en souplesse, bulle élégante, fraîche et digeste, finale agréablement équilibrée. Une bière de soif, d’été, de plaisit

Very all-round good beer. It’s fruity, creamy, has enough bitterness without going overboard. Spicy notes, ginger.

PietS (370) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2017
Combination of fruit (peach / tropical), some floral aromas, mild bitterness. Full bodied, well balanced beer. Enjoyed this one most the Scheldebrouwerij beers.

The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the brew is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice thin drape. Just the looks like any other Belgian ale. The smell of the beer is nice. It is like most Belgian Ale’s. There is a nice malty base, providing a good sweetness. I also smell a biscuits touch. Nice. There also is a lovely bitter and fruity hop aroma. The hops have a nice citrusy and herbal aroma. The beer is more hoppy than the most Belgian Ale’s. The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste lovely strong malts, giving a nice sweetness and a nice biscuit touch. There is also a nice bitterness of the hops. There is also some yeastiness in the beer. The strong yeast really give the beer a Belgian character. Nice beer, but not extremely special. Just a good Belgian beer, like there are more. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium body, medium high carbonation and a nice bitter finish with some alcohol warmt. All in all, a nice Belgian Ale, but not extremely special.
