Gangstergafje (172) - 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.

thirstyrabbit (1362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Opaque light golden body, medium to small head. Mildly yeasty aroma with cloves etc. Basic sweet malty/yeasty Belgian ale taste with more cloves and dry spiciness. Tastes like an unfiltered Leffe Blonde probably would, yet, despite this and the higher ABV, feels more watery. Airy and rather empty finish. Straightforward table beer, has no discernible complexity. The "Grand Cru" label is obviously a joke here.

huineman (342) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Hazy pale golden. Pure white long-lasting head. Aroma is intense: bread dough, brioche, porridge, lemon zest. Fills the mouth with a powerful and full body. Persistent, yeast-reminiscent, long finish. Grand.

Alusmamuts (839) - LATVIA - MAY 1, 2015
Amber hazy with medium white head. Intenese taste, quite biiter with some sweetness, remarkable sourness. Spicy notes, incl. coriander.

biirusaikou (981) - - APR 25, 2015
Coriander, yeast, green banana. Orange cake, quite bready, dry apricot, salt and pepper, gentle sweet finish. Alcohol is quite well hidden but somehow not that flavorful compared to the original.

Lekkere smaak, volgens de fles zou het een perziktint moeten zijn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
