danlo (1688) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
250ml bottle from Carrefour Express at Brussels Midi station. Golden colour, white foam head and fruity, yeasty aroma with some banana, lemon rind, candy. Taste is sweetish, grainy, malt, corn, with spice, fruity & earthy notes and light grassy bitterness. Light bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry spicey finish. Quite drinkable.

I’m not too impressed by this Ciney Blonde. Although it has a nice texture it’s aroma is to poor to be really bothered.

chromeotaphor (107) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Muf zoet citrus broodachtig aroma. Zeepachtige schuimkraag. Zoet bitter met een lekkere bite, makkelijk weg te drinken zonder al teveel diepgang. Doet een beetje goedkoop aan.

bartlebier (2674) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
25cl, mercifully, supermarket impulse buy. One of many pseudo-abbey ales brewed by one of the big industrial lager conglomerates, building on the carapils-powered Alken-Maes/InBev dynasty of starchy industrial Belgian lagers: cf. Leffe, Grimbergen et al. - - Nose of starched banana peel and industrial sugar, carapils derived caramels and Honeypops glaze. Taste adds some industrial intimations of apricot jelly to that, corn syrup, as well as some surprising citrussy hops, its only redeeming flavour. Unclean, sugary palate, Sprite-like dose of tooth decay. - Dead in terms of a yeast profile or malt complexity. Hopefully extinct once new schools of natural brewing gain more impact...

Rubin77 (164) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 10, 2015
F: almost no real head. C: gold to amber like. A: nice malty, spicy, yeasty, hint of honey. T: malt, caramel, alcohol, coriander at the end, hint of metallic tones, orange, vanilla, medium body, lover carbonation, average beer not very good neither very bad.

Heerlijk fris blond bier! Echt perfect bij warme temperaturen. Lekkere zachte fruitige smaak.

jamaty (1342) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Pálida ligeramente turbia con abundante espuma y aroma malteado. Muy efervescente en boca, con un sabor no demasiado común ni muy definido, algo frutal y lupulado. Se bebe muy bien para su graduación aunque no acaba de satisfacer.

Daanminator (308) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2015
Kwa aroma ruikt hij behoorlijk krachtig maar als je hem eenmaal drinkt is het een zeer zacht biertje. Helaas mist de schuimkraag maar dat is ook het enige minpuntje.
