minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Pours hazy gold with off-white head. Lots of candi sugar and sweet yeast, verging into triple territory. Decent and enjoyable.

ClubGonzo (4618) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep clear golden body with a large white head. Nose is white sugar, mild banana, Belgian estery yeast tones, pale malts and hints of straw and honey. Taste is pale malts, white sugar, Belgian yeast, honey and hints of banana, straw and faint metallic grassy tones. Medium body, high carbonation. A pretty spot-on Belgian blonde. Nothing spectacular, but a very well-made brew with plenty of drinkability.

Shark_Pants (427) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Golden colour with large rocky belgian head. Vegetal aromas with honey, spices and booze. The taste has the honey, maltiness, a little earthiness and suggested vegetal characteristics. Medium bodied and peppery. If I was sitting in a cafe in Antwerp or Brussels, I would be quite happy to be sipping this.

Muggus69 (1506) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
330mL bottle BB 26/08/16 Typical looking Belgian blond - hazy golden body, good sized creamy white head. Reasonably good yeasty sort of nose - sweet ripe pears & apricot, clove & white pepper, sultana & pale dried fruits, doughy creamy sort of note, with a measure of light biscuity malts & pale sugars. Good mouthfeel, slightly creamy, carbonation somewhat higher than expected. Medium sweet palate, touch of candy sugar & pale malt upfront, leading onto ripe pear, and hints of tropical fruits, distinct dried fruit undertones with spicy yeasty phenolic notes towards the finish. Moderate finish, drying finish, just the slightest hint of warmth. Not bad, decent Belgian blond

TimE (4071) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 21, 2015
Hazy golden color. Very carbonated rich lively mouth with cookies, pears and strong herbal notes. Decent.

MarkoNm (1301) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a hazy orangey golden color, topped with a sizeable white head. Malty aroma, some fruity and yeasty notes are present, also some spices later on. Taste follows the nose - malty, sweet, with quite some yeasty feel to it. Some bitterness and spices in the finish and a hint of alcohol. Not really what I like.

Brodzislaw (30) - POLAND - APR 5, 2015
Degustacja piwa, które nabyłem we wrześniu AD 2013 r. Data ważności do maja AD 2015. Piwo, które dojrzewa niczym wino. Kolor ten sam, jasny bursztyn. Piana z drobnych pęcherzy opadła do małej warstwy, pozostawiając wyraźny ślad na szkle. Aromat przypominający wino musujące z nutą białych owoców, winogron. W smaku również wytrawne z dodatkiem owoców. Goryczka podbita wysokim wysyceniem, odczuwana jest szczególnie na obrzeżach języka. Swoje 5 groszy dokłada spora zawartość alkoholu. Piwo w porównaniu do świeżego jest bardzo wytrawne a bardziej ukrytym alkoholem i mniej wyraźnym posmakiem drożdży na finiszu, tj. po wlaniu resztek z butelki do szkła.

I usually like blond beers a lot, but this one disappointed me a lot. It has a nice bottle though.

Marduk (3840) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Fruity, bit of dead yeast, grassy, faint citrus in aroma. Fruity, malty, bit yeasty taste. Sweetish fruity malty aftertaste. Nice one.
