WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, - SEP 14, 2012
Strong yeasty flavours bring out the wood here, along with the host of spices and dark fruits these Belgians tend to do. A nice sipper, very well crafted, makes me ask myself why I don’t drink Belgians more often.

KW92 (278) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 25, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana mydlana, nie ładna, krótka.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Bardzo przyjemny zapach estrowy: truskawka, malina, nuty goździkowe. Dobra podbudowa słodowa.
SMAK: Tutaj z kolei bardziej uwidocznione są akcenty fenolowe - goździki. Oprócz tego słodowość. Posmak goździkowy. Alkohol nieźle ukryty.
OGÓLNIE: Jeśli idzie o aromat jestem autentycznie pozytywnie zaskoczony. W smaku wszystko w porządku. Nie zachwyca, ale też trzyma poziom.

TtV (208) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Yellow, gold with a white head. The aroma is a little sweet and has malt hints. Nothing too special. Same goes for the taste. It’s all a little flat: some mild sweetness and bitterness. The spicy aftertaste is most striking.

cafetheseus (1) - tilburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015 does not count
Lekkere volle smaak, alcohol aanwezig in aroma en smaak. Mooie heldere kleur. Beetje slap schuim.

Sten (695) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2015
Pale golden coloured beer with a small and fast diminishing white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly alcoholic. Flavour is medium sweet, acidic and has some hints of citrus. (Bottle 33cl)

minutemat (2252) - 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 (4552) - 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 (400) - 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 (1411) - 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
