kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Very hazy orangish gold color witb a huge, foamy white head. There is a lot of sediment in suspension. The aroma has notes of spice, yeast and wet stone. The flavor has notes of ripe, danky dough and some sweetness. The finish is a little dry

Quevillon (2577) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Drank on tap (12 oz) at Bier Markt Montreal on March 9, 2014. Blonde pale straw, small head. Spicy aroma barley, dry hops. Saaz hop flavor very dry, slightly spicy, a little alcohol and not feeling very bitter. It’s pretty good but I do not put my head in a guillotine to get another!

beerfest5 (1197) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 11, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours bright gold, large billowy white head, no lacing. Aroma of Belgian sugars, hay, barnyard, some toffee. Taste is very much the combination of a traditional Blonde Ale combined with the yeast and sugars of a Belgian Ale, think Delirium Tremens "light". Nice short crisp finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottled 19/07/14. A golden coloured beer with a loose white bubbly head. A typical Belgian yeasty beer but it’s a bit lightweright especially at this strength. No great depth of falvour and booze is unobtrusive. It’s OK but no more,

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Deep golden blonde, heavy Huyghe ale with off-white head, relatively stable seen its strength. Fruity, citrussy aroma, caramel malts, sweetish taste, quite light body for such a heavy beer, yeasty spiciness, grassy hop bitter finish with warming alcohol. Actually not bad and one of the better Huyghe beers.

Vells (831) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 21, 2014
Way too overcarbonated. Light malty background dominated by quite pleasant fruitiness, berries, citrusy hops, light yeasty. Mostly sweet with decent bitterness in finish. Bit harsh alco kick. Drinkable, but that high carbonation ruins beer for me

PriorL (2316) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
75cl bottle at home. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: alcohol, little fruity, quite some grains, nothing special. TASTE: alcohol again, somewhat hoppy, though faint. Oké beer, but nothing special whatsoever.
