BlackHaddock (6085) - Shropshire, - NOV 17, 2012
33cl Bottle poured into the correct (lovely) glass on a sun terrace of a bar in Valkenburg, Holland, 23 Oct 2012. The bottle had a BBD of Oct 2013. As the name might suggest to you, the beer is golden blonde in colour, on top sat a full white crown of bubbles. It’s glass helps to make it look special in my eyes. The nose is a bit sweeter and grainer than I like: seemed wheaty and sugary even before the first sip and I wasn’t looking forward to trying it. Luckily it wasn’t as sickly and weak as the aroma first indicated: still had a sweet front, but it calmed down mid-sip and got even a little hop bitter and dry towards the end of each mouth full. Can’t say it was great, but it was OK I suppose: not very well balanced, almost dis-jointed in that the flavours didn’t blend or mix. I’ll not be having another by choice.

Bottle. Blond and clear with a small head. Lovely sweetness which is assertive but doesn’t take over. Slightly bitter finish and left no lacing. A very pleasant example of this style.

Vells (1428) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUL 10, 2016
All the way too bubble-gummy for my like, low/fast disappearing carbo, some shallow fruitiness, weirdish spice implementation. Moderate to light sweet. Boring.

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Feb. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a clear yellow body with medium to big head. Fine coriander, banana, strong estery aroma, like a wheat ale. Flavor was similar, pleasantly malted sweetish with honey, sweet apple, peach and spices. High carbonation within its medium body making it tingling on palate. A metallic note was present in the finish, but nothing too bothering. Anyway, a pleasant, about mediocre Belgian ale with some interesting notes that reminded of both German Weizen and Kölsch.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde dorée. Effervescence moyenne, mousse blanche. Palais assez neutre, malté. Alcool discret. Finale très courte et fade.

Scrumpy369 (398) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear yellow colour with a small white head. Nose of slight skunkyness with some malty notes. Taste is boozy with malty notes. Too low carbonation for me. Medicore belgian blonde...
