Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, - NOV 11, 2012
33cl bottle. The label has the same color as Nanounette but it’s called just Abbaye des Rocs Blond. Pours orange liquid with some little bits in it. It has a very little white head that disappears. Nose : tart and cooked fruits, mostly cherries. Clove. Sip : Medium body with oily texture. Low carbonation. Sweet tart with dry clove and cooked cherries are well balanced. The beer has a warming action after swallowing. Aftertaste is fruity and dry. Overall this isn’t my type of beer but must say it fits well with cold weather and goat cheese.

tfredvik (1501) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2015
Cloudy amber body with a small off-white head of average life-time, ok lacing. Moderate aroma of pale malts, Belgian malt, faint generic fruits, and pear and cereal the back. Moderate flavour of sweet generic light fruits, Belgian yeast, sweet caramel and traces of candy. Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, almost sirupy body, fairly lively carbonated. Boring, faint and too sweet.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 5 months after BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

mauroruellas (648) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2015
Líquido turvo com sedimentação aparente,coloração âmbar alaranjado,espuma com média formação e baixa manutenção;aroma é o seu ponto forte,frutado,condimentado,com malte em segundo plano;no sabor a uma inversão com o dulçor do malte(um pouco excessivo ao meu ver) se sobressaindo ao frutado,leve picante aparece no final,"drinkability"razoável.

guzgorog (525) - FRANCE - SEP 18, 2015
Blonde foncée trouble, haute mousse blanche qui s’accroche. Nez complexe sur le malt, la levure, les fruits confits, un petit quelque chose de 4 quarts. L’attaque est très agréable : fraiche et fruitée, avec un texture ample et soyeuse. belle rondeur, finale sur les malts et le miel. La carbo est parfaite. Très agréable et facile à boire.

Ysok02 (528) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2015
Une belle robe blonde aux reflets dorés. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de fruits mûrs, d’agrumes confits, de mat, d’épices douces, et de levure, pointe de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque ample, un très beau fruit, de la rondeur, de la fraîcheur et une belle finale élégante et longue. Une bière très raffraîchissante, dans la lignée de la brasserie. Un régal
