MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, - APR 22, 2014
330ml Bottle. This pours a light golden body topped with a medium last head. Its aroma is floral and mildly sweet with hints of spices and hops. Its yasye is surprisingly malty with a citrus smoky finish with the slightest dry smoky linger. A very nice blonde this one.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a veiled and flakey slightly golden straw with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is loads of spices, pepper, mint, coriander. Flavor is very sweet, mint, bread, bubble gum, apricot and pineapples. Finish is a sharp herbal with pepper and mint. Lingering spices. Medium body, average to strong carbonation. Good!

Sten (675) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
Hazy orange - yellow beer with a small white head. Nice complex aroma of fresh yeast and malts. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity with nice balanced aftertaste. Nice brew. (Bottle 33cl)

kraddel (3626) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle Pours clear blonde, small , fast fading white head . Smell is sweet grains, yeasty ( fruits : more specific ’dusty’ bananas ) Taste is sweet ( sugar ) , malts, bit bitter , banana-ish yeastyness again. A buttery aspect as well ( no dyacethyl ) Rather sharp, yet very full taste . The bitterness lights it up a bit, but overall this is a rather sticky beer , more than a refreshing one . Bit overcarbonated . Aftertaste dies fast .

Minderbinder (2027) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle 330ml. Pours hazy blond with low-medium white head. No serious lacing. Aroma is of fruits, spices. Taste is of grain, sugar, honey, herbal hops, some belgian yeast (fruits), spices, bitterness. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Good belgian yeast action. Other than this: pretty straight-forward.

Une bouteille comme sur la photo. Un robe blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de levure belge avec des notes de blé (?). La bouche coule tout seul, marquée par la levure les saveurs sont intenses et agréables.

czar (4688) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
pours cloudy light golden with a creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. spicy and doughy honeyed malts, very yeasty - cloves and pepper, but also a nice fruitiness - pear and pineapple juice, phenolic touch, dusty, woodsy, flower traces. lively to average carbonation - belgiany, light honey sweetness but a relatively dry and astringent grassy-citrusy-spicy finish. sweet-ish nicely crafted belgian ale.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
The younger, ’weaker’, regular blonde version of Het Kapittel Abt, with creamy foam and peach blonde colour. Malty, fruity esters, some DMS (red cabbage) too; sweet main taste, even a bit cloying in the finish, which is insufficiently hopped to my taste. Nevertheless a well-rounded, honest and enjoyable session beer.
