Delft 15-11-2015 Saxo blond (drankgigant.nl) Jammer! Veel van verwacht maar er zijn zoveel betere blond bieren. Hij verliest snel zijn smaak. Neigt nog het meest naar appel.

thb (770) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
Deep gold, ever so slightly pink. Mountains of noisy rocky head. Aroma is green apple, bit of banana, belgian stuff. Taste is dry, refreshing, a touch sour? Tart opening, moves to a dry grainy finish.

jamaty (1545) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2015
Ambar sucia, de escasa espuma. Feo aspecto. Aroma escaso, levadura belga. En boca resulta metálica, con base malteada, notas de levadura y lúpulo frutal. Belga del montón.

opalescent golden colour, huge white head; aroma of hay, floral notes, barnyard,earthy notes, hints of citruses and animal notes; taste of malty sweetness, hints of honey, overripe fruity notes and Belgian yeasts; somehow saison-like Belgian strong ale - really good

Woc (71) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
Pours almost like a champagne with a big head which then disappears. The beer is fine except for the very high carbonation. That´s just way too much to my liking.
