4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml poured in a Westvleteren chalice.
A: Pours a very cloudy beige color forming a big white head which dissipates reasonably fast but not totally leaving alot of lacings. Also many particles can be seen floating around
S: The first thing to hit the nose is bread. Very bready and also yeasty. Followed by fruits, mainly pears and figs. Journey continues with the flowery and earthy hops in the end. Bit of alcohol. Great
T: Bready. Sweet malts, fruits and yeasts, mainly. Dry in the mouth with a delicate but stingy bitterness in the end. Simple and delicious
O: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry upfront and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Well, not much more to say about a beer produced by one of the best brewers in the world

Bottle. Pours golden with some residue and a big creamy head. Aroma is very Belgian with fruity spicy yeast and sweet kandi notes. Full body with average carbonation. Flavour is tart with fruity yeast, spice, orange peel and kandi. Finishes with a long tart and fruity yeast, bordering farmhouse.

Thanks to Ezrangel for this. Pours cloudy yellow gold with a frothy white top and great lacing. Aroma is grains, straw and biscuit. Taste is light and fruity, a small peppery, biscuit finish. Just clean and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh bottle poured at Kulminator in Antwerp. Pours hazy yellow with lots of yeasties floating around and a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of straw and hops, plenty of yeast and light fruits. Flavor is slightly dry, with apples and pears pairing with straw, a bit of sweetness balanced with hop bite, tripel funk, and some other yeast spice. Light bodied, medium plus carbonation. Really nice brew and glad I have some bottles to take home.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
20.10.10 on the green capsule. Brewed in october 2009, in human language. Subtract 1 year for the blonde, 3 years for the 8 and 12 to know the batch time. This is a 5 year old bottle.
Pours a golden hazy yellow and cloudy when chilled. Amazing foam head on every pour. Explosion of aromas and mellow hops (styrian goldings, northern brewer, halertau ?+!). Lemon, orange peel, white came sugar, coriander, verbena, a hint of cork far away in the nose... and a mild acidity. Pils and pale ale malt comes to mind. One of the best blonde beers around that offer a strong body compared to the low % vol. Yummy

From a belgian bottle! Pours a cloudy golden yellow and makes a medium frothy white head smells like a typical belgian white, citrus, light hops and a bit of yeast. Tastes like wheat and lemon. Light and refreshing.
