Demens (219) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 18, 2016
0,33l bottle. Cloudy golden colour with slowly shrinking big white head. Aroma: Basement aromas and an overall yeasty caracter shows from the glass with hiding notes of corn and sugar syrup. Taste: Very sweet start and mouthfeel but I feel Itís an artifical sweetness. Has some light, hiding bitter and sour caracter too. Not bad but the artifical sweetness make no sense to me and unbalances this beer. Light/medium body with average carbonation. Long sour finish. Not that good at all.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, curacao, full oranges and a bit of hay - nice. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rich flavour of the malt, honey, grass, curacao and a bit of the grain. Aftertaste shows a lot of sweetness from the honey, oranges and a good deal of yeast throughout with some bread and grain noticeable still. Overall, a nice and rich beer that shows the belgian characheristics without being too mild throughout. Sadly, after seeing this and passing it by (probably sampling it as well without rating it), Iím sampling this 33 cL bottle purchased from Magasin Tiahura (Convenience Store) in Moorea, French Polynesia on 17-August-2016 for 320 XPF (CFP) sampled at my hotel here in French Polynesia a few minutes later on 17-August-2016.

Wonderful golden color packed with lots of flavor. Nice blend of fruit flavors with just a touch of sweetness.

Mishnok (72) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
500ml glass at restaurant in France. Assume it was from keg. Nice gold colour with good white head. Appealing to look at. Aromas of citrus and yeasts which carry through to the flavour. Decent enough beer to have with a meal or as s refreshment on a summer's day, but not Grimbergen's best offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suoraan sanoen pahaa. Siiderimšistš, kukkaista. Ei toimi allekirjoittaneelle kyllš lainkaan. Ei haittaisi vaikka tippuisi valikoimista.

droef (156) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
0.33l Bottle. Itís not the best beer from the Grimbergen brewery. Itítastes ok, but I expected a little more. It canít compare to an Leffe Blond for example.

Evilman (100) - Taverny, FRANCE - AUG 8, 2016
The direct concurrent of Leffe has some notable qualities. While this is clearly not a great beer, itís a very enjoyable one, with a relatively strong taste for a Blonde. Alcohol level is decent too, this is indeed a Belgian beer. I put this one over Leffe opposite because of a more pronounced taste, which is more in accordance with my preferences. Solid stuff!
