Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Spicy all around; phenols in the aroma, sugar and sour in the flavor moderately, some pepper, yeasty beer, sharp. I kind of used the beer at the end as a real swisher to see what would happen and my mouth got really spicy. Lots of lacing man. Spicy yeasty - again - sticks with you and lays it on heavy.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2011
330ml bottle (some random bar, Bruges)
6 Sweet perfumey malts.
3 Mid gold, healthy persistent head
6 Lovely soft perfumey malts and hops. Quite clear real hops, but still very malted
3 If it wasn’t for the residual sugars, this would have a thin palate, but it does have carbonation that fits well with that level of sweetness. Finish fairly crisp, and with fresh green hops.
13- Very easy drinker. A hoppier version of Leffe, say.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2010
Light golden coloured, a very nice big head. Smell is earthy, good spiced. A lot of taste, but not really that good. Unpleasant dry biterness, hops, to much spices, earthy, light citrus.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2010
Nice solid head, not too much of it, and a very bright yellow with some good carbonation. Aroma of hops, coriander, grains. Taste is mostly hops with a bit of tinniness, grassy notes. Very dry finish. It’s a very good blonde.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a average sized white foamy head over a clear gold body. Smells of spices (corianader seed) and tropical fruits (passionfruit, pawpaw). Tastes of honey, spices and tropical fruit with a sweet body, but a slightly bitter toasty finish. Medium bodied.

erickok (5404) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2010
Clear golden beer with heavy carcarbonation and pearl white head. Yeast, cheese, some spices, grass. Nice malts going on. A quite dry beer that could do with a more explicit taste. Good alcohol in the back. I like it, although it’s not very complex. (Bottle 33cl, 5,50 eur)

jesperhammer (4186) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2010
21-AUG-2010, bottle @Erik, brought and served blind by Peter. Dark amber with fine lasting off-white head. Very fruity "cassis" nose. Fine base beer - malty with some hops. Typical belgian stron ale apart from the fruits - raspberries as well? Overall a fine beer.
