brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A light amber pour with a white head. Very spice forward aroma on this. A good bread note, some yeast, and plenty of malt sweetness. A bit of pear and apple fruits and some banana. Tastes strongly of sweet pale malt and sugar. Plenty of banana and clove spiciness, a bit of alcohol, and a mild bitterness. Quite fruity as it warms up, too.

Thanks Kevin for the bottle! Bottle poured into a tulip showing golden orange with sediments and an ever present thin layer of white foam. The nose shows sweet bready malts with light Belgian yeast notes. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of moderately sweet Belgian yeast with a moderately alcoholic spiciness.

ciocanelu (1434) - 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 (2211) - 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
