Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is fruity with notes of yeast and spice. Flavor is medium sweet fruit, orange, coriander, yeast, with a warming alcoholic finish. Lots of fine carbonation that prickles the tongue somewhat unpleasantly.

330cc bottle. Pours golden blonde with white head. A bit lemony, herbs, spice/pepper and caramel. Taste : lemon, white pepper, green olives, sugar, malt, a bit biscuit and light caramel almost honey like. Nice bitternes. A very pleasant brew.

KW92 (535) - 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 (1734) - 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 (1250) - 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 (89) - 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 (4727) - 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.
