guzgorog (583) - 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.

Cerveja com espuma cremosa e densa, amarelo ouro, única, com gosto do malte e leve toque frutado deixando um leve amargor na boca. Muito boa.

ischas (227) - - DEC 16, 2015
0,75 l Flasche. Aroma: Riecht nach Weintrester. Erscheinung: Hell gelbes, leicht trübes Bier, sehr große, grobporige, stabile, weiße Schaumkrone, die eine sehr schöne Gardine produziert. Geschmack: Leicht säuerlich, wie ein Prosecco, für den Alkoholgehalt aber etwas laff. Nachgeschmack: Wässrig, im Nachgang eine minimal Alkoholschärfe. Gesamt: Trinkbar, aber für meinen Geschmack deutlich überbewertet.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2015
Farven er ufiltreret gylden og skumkronen er tæt og hvid. Aromaen er alkohol , humle og krydderier medens smagen er alkohol, sød frugt og malt. En OK øl, men ikke så god, som man gerne vil gøre den til.

zacgillbanks (3758) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle from Intermarche, Budens, Portugal. Aged for 5 years – Golden coloured with a large white foamy head. It has a slight sugary sweet pineapple and wet paper flavour, toffee notes and a spicy fruity finish. Probably past its best after being aged for 5 years.

Light gold, clear, with a big head and some lacing. Hints of alcohol and fruit on the nose. Moderately-carbonated with a medium mouthfeel and a mild, sticky, somewhat hoppy finish.

Mr_Soria (6) - - DEC 5, 2015 does not count
Estrasburgo. Alvaro. Aspecto muy bueno. dorado con consistencia, espuma densa y espesa. Olor no muy bueno. Sabor un tanto afrutado al final, no muy amargo en el principio. Una buena cereza. Salva: Aspecto bueno, dorado y traslucido como la orina de un riñón lleno de impurezas. El olor te hace sentir reacio a probarla, pero una vez bebida, esta joven cerveza mantiene cierto nivel.
