Bottle at the Belgian Beer Cafe in Brissie. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. Sweet malt and spicy aroma - vegetables too. The flavour is sweet malt, spice and strong alcohol. Sweet and alcoholic finish. I couldn’t enjoy this one.

Bottle from SuperDino supermarket Puerto Mogan Gran Canaria. Golden in colour with a thin head though decent lacing. Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeast and slightly floral hoppiness. It does taste like a stong belgian blond but its just a bit too boozey, almost white wine like too, and certainly on the one dimensional side. There’s also some syrup sweetness that knocks it off balance. It’s not my favourite style anyway and I’m likely making a direct comparison with the likes of Duval - which also, might I add, has a tighter champagne like fizz. I’ll have another of these later, though not tonight, to confirm that I’m not being too harsh.

Bottle, 33cl. Pours a deep golden colour with a magnificent offwhite lacey head. Very floral and citric aroma, with a wheaty earthiness. Smooth snd drinkable yet hits hard in the finish. Well balanced anf surpisingly good.

Cerveza Belga. Color dorado y fuerte presencia alcoholica en paladar. Para mi gusto ideal tomarla fresca, entre 5-8 grados de temperatura. Ideal para adentrarse en el mundo de las cervezas belgas.

Endlich mal wieder etwas Süffiges aus Belgien. Kein Knaller, aber solide Handwerkskunst mit Vanille, etwas Zucker und einigem an hefigen Momenten. Gut. Einfach gut.

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, 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: APR 15, 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.

Typical strong Belgian blond beer, in the veins of Duvel. Dry, bitterish, grainy and with lots of CO2.
