caesar (6364) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 24/07/15, large sample. Clear golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma is spicy, coriander, bit green apple, bit cardboard from age. Bit sweet coriander in taste, bit alcohol, some grainy sweetness. Totally lacks a bite and complexity, focusing on a bit of alcohol and easy drinkability. Meh.

Vignale (3051) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. Gyllengul, klar med lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. En robust trippelliknande belgisk blond. Fruktestrig doft med en del jäst och söt torkad frukt. Kraftfull med en hel del värmande alkohol, smak av mandelmassa med en liten bittermandelton, syltade apelsinskal, torkade päron, fruktestrar, jäst. Liknar en bra lite sötare trippel. Trevlig.

Een typisch Belgisch blond biertje, een lichte kleur en een goede schuimkraag.

En la copa presenta un color rubio dorado, transparente con una buena capa de espuma blanca cremosa de buena retención y con una buena cantidad de burbujas. El aroma es dulce, la levadura está muy presente y se aprecian notas de frutas tropicales, manzana y malta. La entrada en boca es ligeramente dulce, pero esta sensación se desvanece rápidamente dando paso a un amargor intenso y duradero, presenta matices de frutas tropicales, levadura, manzana y malta. El retrogusto es seco y amargo, tiene un cuerpo medio y presenta una carbonatación alta, lo que la hace un poco incomoda en la boca. Se aconseja maridar con pescados como lenguado o bacalao, carnes rojas o queso de cabra.

DraftDodger (882) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Copenhagen 18/7 2015. 75 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen shared with my girlfriend. Pours clear yellow with white head. Disappears very fast. Aroma is a little floral and fruity. Medium carbonation. Taste is fruity and a little spicy. A little citrus as well. Some notes of alcohol - but pleasant enough. Fine blonde. Maybe a little generic.

Strong spicy aroma and citrus reflects high alcohol strength even before you’ve tasted. The flavor is deep rich orange (peel). It have a rounded fullness where its pleasant malty side gets a little more space. Maybe more like a lovely and very full-bodied blonde ale. A lovely soft carbonation promotes its flavor notes of particular citrus, orange and a little cilantro. Hop bitterness is beautifully balanced in proportion to the weakness of malt sweetness which is left with the hops in an elegant end. In the beginning, it has a little fine oiled nature that causes it to hang long in the mouth and just keep well on its great flavor notes. Very elegant and tasteful.

Icedwarf (1134) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, licht zoet en fruitig, anijs en hoppig. Erg goed te drinken bier, komt helaas iets waterig over.
