Bontus (635) - Flanders, - APR 2, 2013
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark brown / brown. Clear / filtered? Head is white to beige. Nose not telling very much, partly vinous partly malty. Munich malts aroma, no burnt or caramel flavors, guess a colorant is used along with some spices like anise (subtle). Not bad and no flaws, but not thrilling either.

MarcoDL (2285) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Standard Belgian blond beer. Has the usual traits of the style, but nothing exciting apart from that.

Noctilucus (101) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2012
Deep burgundy with no haze at all and a good head of fine beige foam. The smell is one of spices, sweetness and a hint of iron, caramel and apple. It’s the nose of a much stronger beer than a mere 6.2%. The taste is full, less sweet and more spiced than the smell, medium carbonation. A glow that would put stronger beers to shame without being overly alcoholic, probably more the result of the spices than really the alcohol. There’s a slight sour touch as well. The full but smooth aftertaste brings malts and yeast in addition to the lingering spices. Very pleasant surprise, especially considering it’s not such a strong beer. Very good overall, regardless of strength!

Clear red brown beer, big creamy light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, banana, tomato sauce (yes, you read that correct), cookies (almond), caramel. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet caramel, fruity, little bitter, chocolate, banana, some dried fruits, bit floral, bitter hops. Aftertaste: green banana, sugary, little bitter, some mocha.
