MadRobin (2721) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Poured from 330 ml bottle after cellaring for 9 months. Cloudy bright amber with a lot of sediment, both suspended and collected at the bottom. The bottle erupted foam immediately and continued to spew until poured into a glass. Once in the glass, it yielded a 2-finger creamy-yellow head and fairly good lacing. Aroma of lemon, apple cider, yeast, light bread and sour grapes. Taste of yeast, spice, sour light fruit, cherry, grapes, pears and apple cider just when it's started to turn. Light/medium body and high/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
A hazy, lively strong blond ale with sweetness getting checked by an acidic tang. Very interesting and leaving me to fervently hope that they did it like that on purpose. Nose of honey, lemon and not-quite-ripe pineapple. Acidity leaves it dangerous and drinkable at that absurd strength.

Swaroga (1955) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2013
33cl bottle. Hazy yellow with small head. Nose : apricot, banana, apple and pear. Tart and spices. Orange peel. Sip : thick and smooth, tingling carbonation. Sweet like a fanta. Esters are really fruity. It got tart flavour with jelly and fruits. Short finish. Strong alcohol content is well hidden but the beer is heavy to drink.

AdamChandler (4265) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange. 1 finger head. Nose of tart raspberries, clover and honey Taste is very much "wit" tasting, wheat, crispy and orange. Dry finish that’s tart and sweet. ABV is very well hidden!

Thx! to Kraddel / Dylan - the F*cking $hole, deranged whaler and possible child rappist - he keeps telling me only dead children because they fight back less. As for the beer it is sort of like him but better. 01/2010 Vintage. Bright golden with brief white head. Chemical bright citrus, articial citrus things, citrus flavoured kids medicine, light sour & touch hops, quite nasty frankly, touch vegetables. Sour lemon and malt taste, touch yeast, sour lemon, celary, vegetable, light bitter esters, sour & eggs. Bit flatter, like all beers from this brewery, not quite intentional, meh.

Blond beer with a small white head. Aroma is very malty and sweet. Flavour is sweet, acidic and a bit alcoholic. (Bottle 33cl)

reebtogi (5460) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is mild fruits. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a zesty rind bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation. A decent strong Belgian blonde that is worth trying at least once.
