Icedwarf (999) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Goudkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht bitter en zoet met iets van honing en zoet fruit. Erg goed.

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 (786) - 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.

jkwood04 (5053) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 8, 2015
11.2oz bottle in a taster. Pours hazy golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, light notes of apple/fruit, and some hints of bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid Belgian ale.

Rubin77 (466) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 13, 2015
F: huge white, lasting. C: hazy gold. A: malt, grassy, floral, peppery, citrusy peels, yeast. T: medium body, very lively carbonation, ABV 7,7%, massive coriander, malty, grassy and floral hops but not bitter at all, quite sweet, like orange/lemon peels, spicy dry on the palate, great refreshing beer, worth to try.

jamaty (1614) - 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.

Lore (1761) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2015
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 (77) - 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.
