Swaroga (1864) - 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.

Ulysse (389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2016
Aroma (bottle): Baking yeast. Aroma (glass): First of corn then a hint of champagne. First impression, tastes like dirt. After a few sips the brew is still not enjoyable. Avoid

josanguapo (675) - SPAIN - DEC 1, 2015
From cervezasespeciales. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x01. Withouth the typical belgian sweetness and more like the brew of an amateur spanish micro. Small disgusting bitterness

SinH4 (1605) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2015
Surprisingly clear golden pour with big white head. Aroma is yeasty, a bit funky even, fruity, oranges, lychee, yes, even gooseberries. Taste is spicy yeasts, oranges and lychee, sweetish, but not too sweet, dough. Smooth finish, slightly warming and boozy. Awesome balance and easy to drink. Pleasant fine-bubbled carbonation. A very good Belgian Blonde!

Jow (3040) - New York, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle at the excellent Providence restaurant Birch. Orange pour small head but tons of chunky sediment. Now is fruity and yeasty. Tastes of oranges, yeast, light pepper, and candy. Fine palate slight bitter balances the fruit. Ok

tfredvik (1555) - 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 (734) - 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.
