Pours a see through golden hue with beautiful carbonation that leaves a two finger frothy head and heaps of lacing,the smell is belgian bready yeast,fruity spicy hops and floral esters,the mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and has tastes of lemon,bready belgian yeast,spicy herbal hops and finished with a hit of citrus and overall its pretty boring but beats alot of other crap macro swill out there cheers.

Nice sunset orange colour. A noticeable amount of sediment is visible during the pour and makes for a cloudy brew. Bloated massive white head, leaves haphazard lace as it falls at a moderate pace.

Honey, cumquat and floral spice, struggling to be heard above a strong dull grainy kind of lagery undertone.

Taste is almost identical, however the uninspiring sour/bitter cheap lager character takes over.

Carbonation is high and contributes a slightly prickly and generic bitter character that hangs around for a bit longer than you want it to, considering how light and lager-ish it comes across everywhere else.

I've banged on about this three times already - but this seems much more like a Pilsener than an ale, and an average one at that. The signature honey and fruity esters are the only aspects that give this a Belgian Ale character. Either way, as the previous reviewer concluded this is pretty boring stuff.

No date on the bottle, served in a Fantome tulip, its maiden voyage. Beer is yellow and clear with a nice white head that has some retention. Carbonation is moderate and steady, lots of lacing.

Aroma is mildly sweet but really weak.

Beer is thin and a little metallic. It is mildly sweet but the sweetness disappears quickly giving rise to a kind of grainy bitterness. Not too pleasant but not too offputting either. Just a boring average, kind of crappy, ale.

A very decent example of this style of beer.
It's good quality drinking, obviously, compared to the big lager/pilsners out there, but you'd hope it would stick out more than it does, for the price.
Still it's a good brew.

Colour dark golden, with a decent head, and good lacing.

Smell and taste a diverse combination of citric, floral, grassy hops, simple but straightforward, reminding of a good pilsner. Not complex or anything.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Fresh and refreshing carbonation makes this a good sessionbeer.

This beer was purchased last weekend at UTOBEER, a beer shop in the Borough Market, London; bottle-conditioned, coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB 06/2012, served just mildly chilled (around 10゚C) in Tripel Karmeliet's tulip-shaped stemmed glass. NOTE: the back label describes itself as "Flavour of a tripel, drinkable like a lager" - don't know how to make of this quite funny "mission statement".

A: coming in a dark golden hue with slight haze, plus a lively carbonated body and slowly-retreating off-white frothy head.
S: the green-apple-ly fruitiness and grassy hops make up the main aroma, slightly sweet for the balance due to the simplistic malt presence, and a touch of salty-sweetness lingers in the background. A swirl wakes up strawberry-flavoured bubble-gum notes. Okay, not complex.
T: quite clean upfront, showing powdered-grainy malts and low-level malt sweetness along with very weak presence of apple-ly fruit esters that unfortunately render a bland foretaste, leading gradually to a semi-rough bitter & chewy aftertaste apparently as a result of the hops used. Unlike one's usual Belgian pale ale, there's not much of a lingering impact given by the estery elements, but rather a semi-rough bitterness and sour-ish taste of malts+yeastiness hovers in the end more in line of a very pale English Bitter.
M&D: semi-clean on the palate and the lively fizziness is within a tolerable level, but overall this feather-light bodied ale has neither the flavour of a tripel nor the true drinkability of a dry & crisp German Pilsener. This beer really is not a necessary product made in the name of, or made by, Oud Beersel.
