ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with decent size white head. Lots of floating yeast. A bit spicy, light citrus, yeast. Tasty and refreshing. Doesn’t amaze me, but it’s very solid.

BlackHaddock (4120) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
33cl bottle: BBD 13 Jan 2016. Drank in The Station Hotel, Oakengates on 15th Oct 2014. Poured carefully into a Duvel glass. Golden body, sediment held in the bottle, white head with lacing. The aroma was yeasty with some floral notes and mild fruitiness. The taste more malty than the nose intimated, semi-sweet, some yeastiness and fruit notes too, nice carbonation.

eduardovl (940) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 350ml bottle poured in a chalice. Delicious Des Rocs specimen. Traditional Belgium Ale with the very characteristic Belgium yeasts smell and taste. Very complex beer. Quite close to a Triple to be considered "simply as a Blond. A: Hazy orange color. Many particles floating around (as the other Des Rocs that I’ve had). Huge creamy, bubbled and persistent white head which does not disappear totally leaving some lacings S: Wonderful. Sweet. Belgium yeasts is a must. Vanilla, cloves and malts T: Like the nose. Sweet upfront. Caramel malts, vanilla, cloves and hops. Light bitter end M: Medium and creamy body. High carbonation. Molasses sensation D: High [ BA Review @ 8/7/2010 ]

Holmen1 (2763) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Ertiketten sier triple fermentation og blonde. Her tar RB feil, dette er ikke det samme som en Abbey Tripel. Flaske delt med medbrygger Ovesen: uklar gylden med bunnfall svømmende i glasset - var vi uforsiktige? Uansett så er både aroma og smak upåklagelig appelsinfrisk med mandarin og fersken lurende i kantene. Bruser i munnen. Slank og elegant, en herlig aperitiff før lammegryten som venter oss.

Holmen2 (1221) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 06.10.14. Hazy golden with floating sediments. White head. Spicy aroma with a hint of banana, clementine and orange. Same taste, but surprisingly sour for a blond/triple. Fairly high carbonation. Very refreshing.

Pours a hazy amber body with a medium head. Somewhat funky aroma of yeast. Rather mild taste of malty tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at the brewery in Montignies-sur-Roc.
Murky pale amber with a creamy white head.
Candy sugar, cake frosting, light herbs / pepper in the nose.
Medium body, low bitterness and medium-low acidity.
Any finesse of Belgian yeast is lost in a sea of sugar.
Cloying sweetness, hard to take more than a sip.
