Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, - OCT 16, 2008
Coloracao alaranjada turva. Ceme denso e consistente, deixando uma camada perene no copo. O aroma e acido, com sugestoes de cascas de laranjas e damascos. O sabor, doce, segue o aroma. O final e longo e doce.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Commissioned abbey-style beer with creamy, firm, pale yellowish, medium thick head and deep golden blonde, warm colour with nice sparkling, clear but marred by large, filmy protein flakes, which I have rarely encountered in beer but which I find utterly disgusting. Aroma of red apple, peach, grass, candi sugar, lots of coriander, pineapple, orange, brown rhum. Fresh fruit sweetish taste, subtle citrus, rather strong carbo, mellow maltiness in the middle, mild hop bitterness in the finish. In all, the taste is well-balanced, though cliché. I believe this has been replaced by Gribousine Blonde meanwhile so should this not be labelled as "retired"?

Lekker biertje, net als zijn bruine broertje. Niet onvergetelijk, maar zeker eens de moeite om te proberen

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
2011-07-23. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Funny aroma, sweet pale malt, lightly floral, bit of a cidery note. 6+ Flavour is similar, cidery esters, pale malt with floral accents. Light bitterness. Average palate. Meh. Bit odd, maybe a bit off? Bottle from MLCC, Winnipeg

thewolf (12131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle @ Delirium, Brussels.
Light hazy golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, yeasty, light apple. Medium to low carbonation, fine dryness and light creamy. Flavour is soft malty, light apple. Elegant and fairly balanced, but it is a bit boring.

oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2011
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Slightly hazy golden colour with a mediumsized white foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some bready malts, quite strong citrus fruity notes as well as some mild spicyness and yeast. Flavour is citrus fruits, some bready and sweet malts as well as some yeasty and mild spicy notes. Also some mild earthy and toffeeish notes as it warms up a little bit.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 27, 2010
Una specie di Affligem, tipico stereotipo della birra "d’abbazia" di produzione industriale.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle. Hazy ochre/dark yellow-brown. Sweet yeasty aroma smells way too sweet and sticky. The palate is soft. The beer is drier than the nose suggests, especially in the finish. Fruity-sweet with coconut jelly and custard with a dry herbal finish. Ends up going down really well.
