dnoaksson (652) - , SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2013
Livet är svårt som det är utan att bli lurad av en belgisk öl som med kurvig Chimaykropp får det att rycka i öltarmen och minnen av blöta kvällar att beslöja vardagen. När Valeir Blond lyfter på skumkronan och blottar ett öl som mer smakar flint än guldlockar står man där med lång näsa - fylld av aromer som mest förstärker saknaden efter Chimay. Uttrycket "man vet vad man har men inte vad man får" kunde ha myntats av mig i denna djupa besvikelse, om inte någon annan viktigpetter hunnit före.

Inga höga förväntningar, belgarna brukar inte vara mina favortier. Rätt medioker, lite unken ? jäst.

nazzty (820) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Plenty of creamy foam that glued itself nicely to the glass edge. The taste is a standard Belgian with good pressure in the malt as it should be and with a dry fine ending.

stefannilssons (1300) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013
Det här var en skön öl, lite oväntad men skön. Smaken är lätt unken med en viss syra och pepprighet. Balansen var inget som jag hade hängt i julgranen men kroppen var okej i alla fall. Slutsats; kul belgare!

Golden blond coloured beer with large white head and lots of carbonation. Sweet fruity hopped aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter sweet ending dry.

DrWally (50) - BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2013
darker blond, almost amber colour. dens foam that lasts a bit. thickens up in your mouth to a creamy texture, fun to let it roll around your mouth. rather full palete, touch of sweetness. very nice

PalCabral (111) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy amber with a huge frothy head, that lasts through the session. The arome is sweet from the yeast, oranges. It’s a lovely smell. The taste is malty and peppery from the hops, tasty but a tad too hoppy for me. It’s a great beer, classic Contreras stuff.

beer_est_deus (501) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2013
Ljust äppelmust färgad med fällning, ljust skum. Doft: Fuktig källare, jäst, gröna äpplen, halm. Smak: Grönsaks spad, äpple, trä, jord, något här oxå som gör att jag tänker på billig lager.
