ciocanelu (1323) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 1, 2016
Clear golden color with huge, frothy white head. Aroma is very "belgian" with intense floral notes from the yeast. Taste starts on the sweet side with honey malt, sugar sweetness and yeast esters. Finishes slightly bitter and earthy. Medium body and carbonation, dry aftertaste. I am not really a fan of belgian blondes but this one is quite good.

Lore (2169) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 21, 2016
hazy orange colour, huge, foamy off-white head; aroma of bread, citruses, orange zest oil, apricot, some earth, floral and leather notes, maybe hints of corinder; taste of grains, not too intensive citrusy notes, apricot and dry white wine notes; fruity and dry mouthfeel; reminds me to a Duvel, however it is more complex and delicious (like a mixture of a Duvel and an Orval); excellent Belgian strong ale
