rdb84 (496) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Light murky golden with large frothy head. A: malts, metal notes, strange wood note, lightest note of dried herbs. T: strong malt character, medium marzipan note. Medium bitter development with light peppery mouthfeel. Relatively dry finish with strong banana yeast taste. Run of the mill Belgian Blond, but you got to admire the technical quality of this brew.

PietS (126) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2016
Nice balance between sweet (fruity) and bitter tastes. It has a good mouthfeel with quite some carbonation. Overall not very special, but enjoyable.

bartlebier (3210) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 11, 2016
33cl bb09/2016 from Bierhandlung. Beigegolden pour with a honeydrizzle texture, big soapy head although less towering mountains of foam like its obvious example. Sweetish aroma of apple pie with artifical apricots (Haribo apricot) and some pregnant Belgian yeastiness of industrial scale, creating a warning whiff of alcohol. - Pilsner malts cake, sweet dough, baked apples and then a fair bite of a herbal Saaz cushioned by sweetness and pear drops, baked banana and white pepper and clove phenolic spice: somewhere there is an industrial Hefeweizen buried here. A rounder, less elegantly dry "hommage" to Duvel at exactly the same abv.

Zlotta (1314) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Bosch Wijnhandel’ (Amsterdam), best before September 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a huge, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, fruity-spicy aroma of banana, clove, sugar, green apples and citrus. Sweet, yeasty-spicy taste of banana, clove, toffee, sugar, some citrus and green apples, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. Quite sweet, but still good in balance. Typical Belgian yeasty-spicy stuff. Nice!

Clear, golden colored, small not very lasting off white head. Aroma is fruity, some sugar and spices but also solvent and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet sugar, caramel, syrupy fruity, some spice, noticeable alcohol and solvent again, light spicy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy.

ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2016
33cl Orange un peu trouble. Mousse pas aussi abondante que comme écrit sur l’étiquette. Arômes de fruits, sirop, miel. Belle effervescence en bouche avec des saveurs allant vers le sucre, les épices et le miel sans exagération. Amertume moyenne pas désagréable. A retenir.

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2016
Pours hazy gold with small white head. Aromas of lemon, apricots, floral notes, honey, hay, booze. The booze is quite prominent in the taste, lemon, malty, coriander. Dry finish, light bodied. Not bad but a little boozy.

rami_pl (1460) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 6, 2015
butelka, warka do 19-04-16. Bardzo wysoka, szampanska biala piana, szybko niestety opada zostajac troche na szkle. Aromaty kwiatowe, cytryna, slod, przyprawy od drozdzy. W ustach ewidentnie kwaskowate z dosc wysoka jak na styl goryczka. jest tez troche bananowo-miodowej slodkosci takiej nieco ni przypial ni przylatal... ok, po ogrzaniu sie w aromacie tez sie takie nutki pojawiaja :) orzezwiazajace. bardzo wysoko wysycone. niestety dosc wodniste. bardzo niestandardowe. ale zaskakujaco mile.

Clear golden liquid, average head. Strong aroma of citrus and hops. Light body, strong carbonation. Taste is weak, pils-like and a bit sour.
