Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
A few bottle shared with good friends in Bodø. 330ml bottles from Vinmonopolet Bodø Sentrum. Huge rocky white head to a hazy golden body. Sweet fruity nose added by spices. Plums, sweet malts, and pears to the taste buds supported by a spicy touch. Bittersweet, more sweet than bitter, finish. Easy to drink, not much happening, just alright (Die BierStube, Bodø 28.02.2014).

jdjuice (308) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2014
Pours hazy gold with smooth white head. Lots of yeast on the bottom. Slightly sour, malty notes on the nose, like a typical belgian white. Very smooth mouthfeel, but a bit lacking in depth. Slightly sour, low spiciness (clove, coriander), good amount of hops. Not bad; a good session beer.

ninecats (54) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle, fall 2013. Hazy yellow color wth two fingers white foam, some lacings. Aroma is typical belgian blonde, with citrus, hay, apricots, cloves, grass. Taste is about the same, albeit more anonymous than expected (even for a blonde on 4,8%). Dry ending. Medium body, lots of carbo. Will work on a hot summer day.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Somewhat strange smell, something like lemon floor polish. Smooth and drinkable other than that, but taste is strange. Extra from a Boutip trade.

Bara namnet får smaklökarna att slå frivolter och alkoholhalten får hjärnan att sluta fungera under några sekunder. Inte för styrkans skulle utan snarare av förvåning över en belgare som inte ens når upp till 5 procent. I slutändan tar det ena ut det andra visar det sig. Close but no cigar.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Drukket på RV124 7 Feb 14. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Veldig høyt luftig skum som etterlater litt lacing. Bra maltaroma med innslag av krydder. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er anonym. Litt kvalmende. Litt tørr i avslutninga.

Pours a hazy golden body with a thick white head. Fresh aroma with a very well balanced taste. A lovely beer :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
