knickskicks (1026) - - DEC 27, 2015
Golden pour, fluffy white head. Nose is fruity esters, banana, hops, must. Taste is banana, some pineapple, booze, bitter hops, Belgian yeast. Smooth silky mouthfeel with a dry finish. I used to enjoy this one much more. I wonder if anything has changed since then besides my tastes. Was still nice to revisit.

Yased (36) - MEXICO - DEC 26, 2015
De Moorgat-Duvel esta Belgian Golden Stronge Ale “Duvel” una cerveza pajiza a dorada con perlas diminutas y una retención verdaderamente buena que va dejando las paredes impregnadas mientras se consume el liquido. Con esteres a pera, clavo y de un marcado dulzor de azúcar y no a malta como es generalmente suele ser, los lúpulos nobles están presentes aunque casi imperceptibles. El sabor es relativamente sencillo toques de pera, especias, jerez. Una cerveza que aunque sus sabores y aromas están definidos, todos al mismo tiempo son intensos lo que la hace difícil de tomar, ademas de que el 8% de alcohol es muy perceptible.

guzgorog (581) - FRANCE - DEC 22, 2015
Superbe robe jaune pale, relativement limpide, mousse blanche énorme, à cratère, laissant une belle dentelle sur le verre. Nez sur la levure (banane, levain), pain et les houblons herbeux. Bouche plutôt sur les houblons herbeux et terreux, la levure reste présente (un peu de banane), des notes de pain au levain. Grosse carbo, corps rond, bonne amertume, superbe longueur, alcool bien présent tout au long de la dégustation. Magnifique équilibre entre le houblon et l’alcool, un grand classique excellent et indémodable (attention, bière traitre qui bourre la gueule !). En blonde, c’est un peu ce qui se fait de mieux dans les bières qu’on trouve partout en supermarché.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle - Slight hazy golden colour, medium frothy white head, good retention and fine lacing. Nice fruity aroma, white winey notes, some grapes, yeast, gooseberry, some lemon juice, orange peel. Taste is malty, with crushed grains, lot of fruity esters, grapes, gooseberry, green apples, flowery hop bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation, slick mouthfeel, dry and fuity finish. Well rounded, sophisticated belgian strong ale. A must have.
