Rubin77 (2593) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2016
F: not big, white, quick gone. C: deep gold, hazy. A: malty, yeasty, banana, candy sugar, peach, wheat. T: very malty, pear, candy, yeast, dusty, spicy, wheat, medium body, more than normal carbonation, quite interesting interpretation of BSA, why there is wheat? Good but not the best, 341ml bottle from Eat Brussels 2016 festival.

ChadPoole (479) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head and noticeable carbination. Aroma is yeast, grain and fruits. It has a sweet taste with a medium body. Good beer, but it lacks something I just can’t put my finger on.

3.8
Lore (2901) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 18, 2016
extremely hazy golden colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of wheat, coriander, fruits like peach, grains, earthy and some floral notes;taste is the same with peppery notes in the aftertaste; good, though I’m not amazed somehow...

3.9
rjplumer (1183) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Zesty fruit aroma. Hazy burnt yellow body topped with bright white head. Bold crisp coriander taste. Even with it’s bold character it has clean finish.

Adamsville (392) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Sans trop vouloir me répéter, je trouve que la levure très typée d’Unibroue s’agence mieux avec leurs bières blondes que celles brunes. Ici, la Don de Dieu ne fait pas exception. Les épices de la levure ainsi que ses fruits (agrumes, poire, peut-être même pomme) vont de pair avec le malt quelque peu sucré, voire mielleux de la bière. Un peu trop effervescente?

tightslice (1438) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light Belgian spicy-ness, light fruits, wheat-y esters. Taste is lighty ripe peach (without any of the tartness), some hay / wheat. Palate is very memorable...creamy, juicy but not cloying or sticky. Has a "standard" Belgian quality but I really enjoyed this one.

3.5
sulawang (1197) - - JUN 14, 2016
Visual: Pours translucent marmalade orange with a decent sized micro-fine bubbly 1cm head w/ retention, clusters of active streams. Nose: banana wheat malt-honey-chamomile (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp-micro bubbly, Mid-palate: citrus tangy (lvl-5-sweetness), banana wheat malt, pineapple, chamomile-honey, alcohol zingy Finish: wheat malt dry-rough, banana exhale. Summary: Full on banana wheat malt and alcoholic. A bit astringent in the mids and finish but overall solid and enjoyable.

3.5
Ktwse (5467) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Pours clear golden with tall white head. Aroma of raisins, sugar, dried fruit, light honey, light herbs. Taste is very sweet, sugar and honey, with a light spicy finish. Somewhat one-dimensional. Body is light to medium rich, smooth, with almost lively carbonation.

4.1
Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Hazy straw peach color with powerful activity. Extra foamy, almost creamy, white sparkly 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of fresh apple and sweet grains, slightly metallic. Flavors of citrus lemon, coriander, apple, peach, pineapple, fruit ester, honey/caramel, floral and herbal spices. Bready and woody/oaky feel. Highly sweet but still sharp. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Well intensified medium strength finish, ending with a slightly vinous fruity estery feel with a dash of spices. Overall an excellent craft having good freshness and nice complex flavors, well balanced and intensified. Pretty good but not my favorite Belgian Ale.
