Pale blonde colour, almost like a white beer , with a small head that keeps a ring and leaves a great lace. Aroma of pineapple,banana, coriander. Medium to light body, great carbonation. Taste of fruits, bitersweet, cloves. Good.

Labelled as Goliath Blonde, from Brasserie Legendes.
On draft at de Zotte, Amsterdam.

Hazy platinum with madly clingy snowy froth.
Funk, crackers and lemon on the nose.
White bread, a twist of lemon, then cut grass hops.
Herbal finish and slightly bitter rind linger.
Crisp, light, slight cling, creamy.

Lemon meringue pie! Nothing like the depth of Blond v Jut. Still, gets the job done.

A: Pours a clear, glowing gold with a clingy white head.

S: Aromas of honey, grass, and citrus are immediately evident.

T: Notes of grapefruit, kumquat, lemon, herbs, grass, caramel, honey, and biscuits wash across the palate. The finish is hoppy with pronounced grass and citrus notes.

M: Light to medium in body, dry, and firm. Carbonation is crisp. This is a very drinkable ale.

O: Compared to many Belgian pale ales, Gouyasse Tradition is very flavorful. This was a great experience on-tap.

Tall thin 330cl bottle, best before Mar 2013, poured into a Duvel glass in Nov 2011.

I managed to keep the sediment out, so the beer was a golden yellow colour with nothing floating about within, the head was poor, thin and wispy: the pour didn't help the head of course, with me being cautious trying to keep the yeast and sediment elements out. To be completely fair an island of bubbles did stay throughout the review and a full collar surrounded the beer until the end also.

Belgian yeasts and sweet floral, fruity notes from the hops (and malts).

Crisp and sharp in the mouth, a bit fizzy, too carbonated for my palate, but not unpleasant. Those sweet aroma notes carry on in the taste, this isn't bitter or harsh at all, even though it isn't smooth or rich in any way either. Lets just say it's rough around the edges in flavour and texture.

Different and interesting without being completely unusual or fantastic: I liked it, but didn't go overboard about anything.

Surprised to see this one on tap at Vine St. Pub in Denver. $7.50 for 8oz. I only had one :)

Pours a bright gold/orange a bit murky. Large white fluffy head. Lacing is great. Does seem a bit sugary...

Aroma is tame. Not all that outstanding, but nice nonetheless. Banana is heavy with a good dose of spice/coriander. Base pale malt and wet dough.

This is a nice tasting beer, but a bit odd with the feel. The flavors of banana, coriander, mint, parsley, malt and some citrus give off a sweetness that seems misplaced. Maybe it is. But the feel on the end is a quick dryness that really takes the beer off the palate. Very little aftertaste, making it quite drinkable.

I bought this bottle a few weeks ago in Poppel at the Bierschuur. I like Belgium pale ales and this bottle is one of the good dinkable beers in his sort.

Poured in my Struise glass the beers is nice yellow with a two finger head with lots of big bubbles. Not much carbonation, a pity.

Not very bitter but more sweet. This is a refermented beer.

Look closely at the label, quit strange!
