madsberg (10608) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Light yeasty and fruity aroma. Is very bland and boring. Flavour is fruity, light flowery and light grapish. Light yeasty. Thin bodied. Sweetish end. Bland and uninteresting.

FatPhil (10291) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2007
330ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku) Light orange, little head. Huge ginger and sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is disappointing initially - a bit alcoholic, but mellows later. Leaves hops, which is nice.

Bov (10215) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2011
courtesy of Doeschi - hazy dark blond beer under a persistent white foam; yeasty and fruity aroma (pear and apple); full-bodied and oily; some sweetness and pretty tasty; a hint of acidity and a solid bitterness; very long yeasty and fruity hoppy finish - pretty nice

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of malt and light citrus and apple. The flavour has sweetness, a light citrussy bitterness, notes of malt, alcohol (quite a bit) and light hints of coriander and yeast. IMO the alcohol should be more subdued, and that makes the overall impression somewhat unbalanced.

Benzai (9778) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Clear yellow / golden color, nice thick white head. Smell soft hops and sweet. Taste soft bitter, sweet and malts. Decent carbonation, medium body. Decent blond beer.

Rune (9067) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
330ml bottle by the courtesy of djoeye. Hazy dark golden body under a lasting off-white head. Fair lacing. Belgian yeasty fruit on the nose, lightly spiced. Fruity flavours, candy sweetness together with a yeasty touch. Foamy in the mouth. Satisfying (shared with Finn at his place in Tromsø 11.02.2015).

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Tap at RNH. Slightly hazy golden pour. Tight creamy white head. The nose is softly spicy. Initially the beer has a peppery character and there is a very rich creamy palate. Bright earthy Belgian pale malt with a nice rusticity. Lightly wheaty with anice light spiciness as well. Fairly fruity (melons) which is also quite nice. Softly marshmallowy with a little bit of light cotton candy as well. There is a little bit of Saaz noble hoppiness. Pretty damn nice brew. I don’t know how 12% importer keep finding these really great, rustic examples, but they do.

Tap. Peach, orange and musty malt aroma. Slight hazy yellow color with small head. Sweet orange peel with lightly bitter finish. Solid enjoyable beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2006
Bottled - Evening Star Brighton. A blonde coloured beer with a nice white head and decent lacing. The aroma is hoppy with lemon citrus notes and a little pepper. The taste is smooth and a little creamy. There is more peppery spicy hop and a good yeasty flavour. Good body and tasty.
