The beer reminded me a lot of the Duvel. Because of itís strong alcohol aroma (although this one has more hops in itís aroma).

Douberd (3062) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
(De Dolle Lichtervelds Blond) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tall tulip, ABV 9% Golden orange colour on the body, with intense activitu in it and huge, four fingers tall white head, with excellent retention, helped not only by its size but also from its thickness. Heavy lacing left on the glass. Nice aroma, fruity, with apricots and light peach, some yeast, soap. Really nice and unexpected taste, lots of fruits, the most clear wine notes Iíve met in a beer, faint sugar and saison-like yeast, some fresh apples, hops, very complex. Medium thin body with good carbonation and slightly dry on the palate. Very good, surpassed my expectations.

petrox (2) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2015 does not count
Sweet aroma, fruits, apple , bubble gum very nice. Taste yeasty, fruity, some alcohol with balanced (medium-low) bitter finish. No alcohol in aroma, very drinkable and smooth. Great , easy drinking (despite 9%) belgian blond ale

Decent blond ale. The appearance is a typical deep honey tripel color, which is pleasant. The nose is distinctly citrus and fresh. The taste follows through with an orange and grapefruit citrus tone with yeast, as well as a bitter dry hoppy finish that lingers. The palate is nice for 9%, but not as creamy and smooth as the best. Overall a refreshing strong ale, pribably best in summer and if you really like hoppy bitterness.

grappig nietszeggend etiket voor mij, schenkt licht vlokkerig, bleek gouden met minimaal witte kraag. aroma van mandarijn, sinaasappel. zoetje, gist, citrus, exotisch fruit (perzik). Smaken zijn bij de eerste slok die van een zuurtje (fruit), redelijk bittertje, iets van ananas , metalige ondertonen, gist, afdronk iets pittig (pepertje ?). medium body, dun van texuur, normale co2, en afdronk kruidig. gaat wel

Very nice blonde beer. Medium bitterness, with a citrus touch that reminds me more of oranges and less of lemons. Itís very smooth to drink, although it has an alcoholpercentage of 9%.

Icedwarf (612) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2014
Levendig lichtbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en sterk, licht zoet, citrus. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft lang hangen

Pors hazy dark yellow with a big white head. Aroma is moderate yeasty and malty, citrus. Quite carbonated, same as De Dolle Dulle Teve, moderate sweet and bitter, citrus and the characteristic yeast touch.

Pours a hazy amber body with a giant head. Faint yeasty aroma with Done malty tones. Rich creamy taste with a little bitterness in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of zesty Belgian yeast and sweet fruit. Medium body, flavour is mildly spiced, medium sweet and light bitter. Dry, bitter-sweet finish. Expected better.
