bunget (676) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JAN 15, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden body, medium white head, somehow a lower retention than expected. Aroma of yeast, honey, a bit floral, citrus. Taste is moderately yeasty, sweet malts, herbal hops bitterness, grapefruit zest. Intense carbonation and a numbing alcohol effect.

KW92 (511) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, trwała.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Owocowy. Dojrzałe jabłko. Dzikość belgijskich drożdży.
SMAK: Słodowy. Owocowy posmak. Końcówka alkoholowa - przyjemna, rozgrzewające.
OGÓLNIE: Brakuje intensywności. Jak na piwo 9 procentowe, to powinno ono "atakować" różnymi aromatami, a wy tym przypadku tak nie jest.

Bottle at Beerville Bar, Belgrade. Clear yellow, small white head. Pear, pale stink, grass, small yeast character. Boring.

nihtila (1721) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines, thanks AshtonMcCobb. Pours slightly hazy yellow. Nose is spices, hops, lemon. Taste is light sweet malts, banana, fruits, spices. Quite basic but solid Belgian blonde.

jamaty (1230) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Ambar clara, algo turbia y muy burbujeante. 1-2 dos de espuma poco densa. En boca es muy efervescente. Excesivamente. El resto es malta, mezcla de dulce y amargo y algún tono herbal. Final seco y amargo. Decepcionante.

susonagger (87) - spain, - MAY 13, 2015
Cerveza de abadía, tipo tripel, 9 % de alcohol, de alta fermentación y con segunda fermentación en botella. Como su nombre indica, la Augustijn Grand Cru es la versión tripel de la Augustijn Blond: siendo más fuerte, en graduación alcohólica y amargor, que luce un color dorado haciendo honor a su fama de ser una de las maravillas en el firmamento de las cervezas belgas. Su aroma afrutado, típico de una triple, combina con su pronunciado amargor debido al abundante uso de varios tipos de lúpulo y esa magnifica combinación se perfecciona durante la segunda fermentación en botella, donde se forma de manera natural esa grandiosa capa de espuma.

Hmmm, this is a complex beer. Its thick, hoppy and spicy, but also fruity and yeasty. Def a grand cru!

ClubGonzo (4696) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a massive cloudy off-white head. Nose is red fruits, light candi sugar, caramel, pale malts and hints of straw, bread and biscuits. Taste is light candi sugar, prunes, caramel, bread dough and hints of banana, straw, grass and mild white pepper. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Decent BSA without ever making a lasting expression.

Humlehode (299) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Pours golden with thick white head. Highly carbonated. Floral, spicy, solvent like aroma. Funky taste. Light mouthfeel. Finishes dry ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (1522) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
330mL from International Beer Collector BB 19/8/16 Hazy blonde beer, lively looking - holds a good dense creamy inch of head. Subtle aroma; cereal malts, white sugar, a pretty decent measure of floral, spicy hops, faint tropical/ripe stonefruit note. Good weight on the body, sits rather nicely, creamy almost velvety , lifted carbonation - doesn’t seem like a 9% beer! Palate starts sweet - cereally, pilsner/pale malts, white sugar, apricots, unripe peach, even a bit of rockmelon, with peppery phenolics & hint of floral grassy hops. Moderate bitterness, lingering spice on long finish. Rather liked this - not as polished as better Tripels, but nice flavour.
