On draft at Cafeeke, Madrid, Spain under the name Te Deum Rubia.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a sweet biscuity malt and slight flowery hop.

The taste consisted of an upfront sweet malt, balancing hop and doughy finish.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall not very omplex, but easy enough to drink.

Bottled by Brasserie du Bocq to be sold exclusively in Spain.

Appearance: deep gold yellow and good clarity. The head is white, frothy, moderate in size, but it seldom persists (no lacing).
Aroma: very nice aroma. For me it was the highpoint of Te Deum.
Taste: oversweet with honey notes and a flower presence.
Mouthfeel: unctuous and creamy, good carbonation, correct alcoholic strength (5.8%) and a rich body.
Finish: mellow aftertaste. Very short.

Overall: I had a very good first impression and loved the smell, but after the actual tasting it was a bit disappointed. It is too sweet and kind of cloying. No hoops. There are hundreds of better Belgian ales.

This one pours a golden colour with an average white head. Thin smell of flowers and honey, with spices notes. Light sweet flavor, light body and light mouth of flowers, honey and citruses. Everything is average or even under.
Frankly, I'm not sure if it worth the while buying the rest of the Te Deum stuff.

It kind of tastes like Hoegarden, but it is filtered thus clear.

This beer isn't to my taste, so I'm probably not the best person to review it but I do what I can.

Some more info that may be relavent.

The label says 5.8% ABV. The label says (en espanol) best if consumed before 23/11/06 (November 23, 2006) and it's the end of May so maybe it's fresh.

The ingredients are water malt hops and yeast.

It is supposed to be a Belgian beer, but my bottle was brewed in Madrid.

The beer pours a golden yellow with no head what so ever.
It smells like Hoegaarden.
It tastes like Hoegaarden

Mouthfeel is a bit strange. It seems a bit over over carbonated.

I won't be having any more of this stuff, but again not to my taste

This is some contract-brewed beer from du Bocq to introduce the spanish to abbey-styles. they need it.

and it was actually quite decent. at first, the pour seemed like a thin yellowish attempt weaker than grimbergen blonde. the head was very poor, swirley atop this pale thinness.

the smell is considerably subtle too- nothing fantastic, surely enough sweet and fruity, but much too weak. however, looking into it a bit more, it's fairly complex, several apple, orange pear scents coming off.

The taste was quite sweet and pleasant, fruity and a tad spicy as well. soft nonetheless, but it seemed adequate for the whole context. it's definetly a nice supermarket belgian ale.
