Purchased as part of a mixed 6pk from the LCBO for $18.00. Pretty good for $3.00/beer. Served at 5deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a nice head. Go slow pouring Danielson! Dark golden good. Head stays well and to a film for a the remainder of the pour

S- A bit light but yeasty good.

T- Young. Not quite up to snuff in the flavor department. A light Duval

M- Dry as expected.

O- Very good. Nice Belgium blonde. Worth the $3.00 for a 330ml bottle no problem.

Food Pairing

This nice blonde went well with..... cheese and olives. Vary the cheese to get a good punch then mild.

Enjoy!!

Pour: Snifter or tulip. Tilted glass and finish high to get some head. Unlike Piraat not a lot of head forms from pouring high. Head becomes a thin film. A little yeast left in the bottle.

Color: Gold, crystal clear. It looks like the usual pils you get in any country.

Aroma: Pineapple, peaches, wood, a little hops, a little brandy.

Taste: Similar to aroma. Some pineapple with peaches. Softer than the Piraat. Medium carbonation. Some Sauvignon Blanc-like flavor in front. Middle tastes like a pilsener Urquell. Finish has malt, some alcohol and some bitterness that fades away.

Not in love but I don’t dislike it. I like the fruity aroma but it tastes to much like a white wine or an average pils. At room temp you would think you are drinking a pilsener Urquell. Forgettable.

Big foam after popping the cork but not a spew. Big clouds of whipped cream head. Clear golden color in the Ommegang chalice. Plenty of sudsy carbonation in the mouth. Light fruity, yeasty aroma with a spicy whiff of lemon cookies.

Flavor starts off with a white cake batter taste. Lots of lemony flavor with the wheaty malt flavor. Tangy fruit notes with a hint of wet cardboard and ginger snaps. A little bit sticky, though the sweet malt is more balanced with the acidity. It really is like a sugary citrus drink, though the bitter yeast flavors are unmistakeably Belgian.

A powerful brew in the grand tradition with all the Belgian characteristics. More of a brew to sip respectfully. It's hard to take too much of this with that cloying cake taste. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Ibis Market in Mission Hills.
