McTapps (3956) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
The beer pours out of the bottle in a deep golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of barley, bread, Belgian yeast, flowers and grains. Finishes off with Belgian yeast and flowers - like it started. Easy and smooth to drink, yet nothing that special.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Botella de 33 cl. Alto contenido alcoholico que se refleja de forma excesiva en el aroma y en el sabor.

33cl. Golden color with a white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity,yesty but lighter than you would expect from a strong ale. Flavor is about the same.

MarcoDL (2149) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014
Typical strong Belgian blond beer, in the veins of Duvel. Dry, bitterish, grainy and with lots of CO2.

Como ando escuchando algunos discos de los Judas Priest, pues me dije: "Enga, una Judas". El nombre no tiene nada que ver con el grupo, que yo sepa, pero cualquier excusa es buena para beber cerveza. Otra cerveza belga dentro del estandar de cerveza belga. Si no conoces las "belgium strong ales", la primera que te tomas lo flipas. Cuando llevas unas cuantas empiezas a entender que cervezas como esta se encuentran en la media del mundo cervecero belga. Es decir, muy buenas cervezas pero no especialmente memorables. De esta destacaría su color dorado cristal que la hace ciertamente atractiva dentro de las rubias y la facilidad con la que se engulle a pesar de sus 8 grados y medio. Buena cerveza para tomar con los colegas. Ahora, aquí, escuchando el "Sad Wings of Destiny" caen dos y porque no tengo más.

Colour: gold, blonde with a white head. Nose: citrus, grassy, raisins, slightly vanilla. Flavours: fruity (orange, lemon), licorice sweetness, butterscotch. Finish: short and fresh. Not memorabele. Verdict: standard blonde beer, nothing special.

JefVerstraete (1276) - BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2014
Golden colour, a lot of white foam. Medium body. Fruity aroma. Sweet and malty taste. Some light bitterness in the finish. Nothing special.

Juste balance entre amertume et douceur, à apprécier dans son grand verre. Belle mousse également.

From a bottle. A nice citrus taste and one finds the wheat in the aroma. Mild and good.
