Maakun (1538) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle. Golden with short lasting white head. Lots of spices and Belgian yeast up front with cloves, fried banana, pancakes, dough. Over medium sweet with herbal bitter finish. Over medium bodied. Very spicy beer with some abbey-style yeast. Maybe a bit too much but still quite enjoyable.

jamaty (1250) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
Aromatizada con especias y refermentada en botella. Trigo y cebada. Dorada turbia, con sedimento. Dos dedos de espuma. Aroma floral y plátano. Sabor completo y complejo, especiado, miel y final amargo con postgusto dulce y caliente por el alcohol. Muy buena.

DrHanz (2) - Nieuwegein, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2015 does not count
A better-tasting alternative for Leffe Blond. One of my favorite summer beers. Goes well with some chorizo. Coriander, some banana, hint of citrus. Serve chilled.

mjansen1310 (132) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
0,33 litre bottle. Hazy golden beer. Tastes like an weizen with hints coriander. Also fruity banana hints. Somewhat heavier then the blond from hoegaarden.

Gangstergafje (284) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
The beer has a nice appearance of a blond beer. The color is golden yellow, more golden than yellow. The foam is white and soft, but disappears quickly. It is not as creamy as I like my foam. The beer has a nice sweet aroma, with some almond aspects. It also has a nice fruity tone. The aromas in the smell have a great similarity with Leffe Blond. The taste also has a great similarity. I like Leffe Blond, so this similarity is not bad. The taste also has this acidy fruitiness (the acidity is little). The almond aroma is less present, but it accounts for quite some sweetness in the drink. The beer is really nice and the flavors are in good balance. Bitterness, sweetness and sourness are perfectly balanced.
