oppear (94) - Tallinn, - AUG 6, 2013
Belgian light style, very foamy top (nitrogen?), bit sparkling wine on the nose and a light palate, reminds Tripel Karmeliet but nowhere near as potent.

vinivini (714) - BELARUS - JUL 16, 2015
Golden, one finger tall head, stays as a hill in the middle, nice lacing. The nose is spicy, fruity, airy. Light to medium body. Hoppy taste with citric & fruity notes. Refreshing. The belgian solid grainy body is totally away.

McWorta (997) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Deep yellow orangey hazy colour with a medium off white head. Aromas of malted wheat, coriander, spices and fruity esters arise. Softly carbonated with a light smooth texture and a medium body. Some wheat sweetness combined with a light fruity bitterness on the back of the palate. relatively short finish.

Lowenbrau (2641) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2015
330ml bottle lots of times in the early belgian years.
In short: average belgian ale.
Pours hazy dark golden with frothy white head. Long head retention, some lacing. Yeasty, citrusy, bready nose. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is little sweet, spicy, citrusy, fruity. Dry and little astrigent aftertaste.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada oscura con abundante espuma blanca. Aroma cítrico y especiado. Sabor que recuerda a una de trigo, de principio a fin: muy cítrico y especiado también. Cuerpo medio y tono que esconde no del todo el alcohol.

33cl flesje via drankgigant.nl Alcoholpercentage van 6,3% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: goudoranjekleurig met dikke witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: Belgisch gist, zoetig, fruitig als abrikoos Conclusie: wat simpele smaken, typische Belgische blonde, maar vind hem best lekker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

huineman (417) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 28, 2015
Pours hazy golden. Abundant white head. Aroma is low: honey, lemon, porridge, a tinge of metal. Thin, watery and light, without the classic spicy touch that most blondes have (which leaves an aftertaste that evokes mint or eucalyptus).

UXO (819) - CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale straw with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is pithy citrus, wheat, bready yeast, light coriander and tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste is mild to moderate sweet, mild bitter and tart. (6/10) Medium body tending to the watery, lively to moderate carbonation, off dry finish. (3/5) A nice refreshing BPA - bright and mildly tart, with nicely balanced bitter and malty sweetness. The ABV never really enters into the profile, and isn’t high enough to interfere with the refreshment value. Pleasant, if a bit on the boring side. (14/20)

bottle sample, poured a cloudy blonde colour with a white head. notes of grains, citrus, orange, grains, belgian yeast, coriander, tropical fruits, honey, very simple brew. but refreshing,
