Wanne (18) - - JAN 25, 2015
The hops are dominant in the aroma, a mixture of floral and grass accents. It pours a nice golden beer, with a white head that vanishes rapidly. The hops dominate the taste, which makes it a medium bitter beer. The texture of the beer is thin, and the initial hop accents are completely absent in the finishing. Overall a nice beer, which tastes better if you drink it slightly warmer than the recommended serving temperature.

Ysok02 (137) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2015
Robe blonde, reflets ambrés. Nez puissant sur des notes de houblon, de malt et d’épices sur un fond fruité (pomme et banane). Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, houblonnée, une très belle amertume raffraîchissante et une touche épicée qui dure, longue finale équilibrée. Un très belle bière très digeste.

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
2014-12-31. Amber body foamy head. Aroma is sweet lightly cereally grains. Flavour is moderately alcoholic, fairly bitter throughout, with lingering cereal grains and bitterness. Smooth average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. I did not particularly care for the grainy character. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

bewyder (161) - FRANCE - JAN 16, 2015
Une bonne blonde forte belge, équilibrée mais manque de complexité, de singularité. Bouteille bue au bar Le Falstaf, Paris, France, le 14/09/2014.

Martijntjepils (5) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015 does not count
Goede goud blonde kleur die je verwacht bij een blonde strong ale. Grote schuimkraag veel carbonatie na het openen van de fles. Citrus geur en andere hops duidelijk aanwezig in de aroma. Smaak: citrus is overheersend. Medium dikte, verwachte wat meer bitterheid van de hops te proeven, maar is zeker goed aanwezig. Alcohol is bijna niet voelbaar. Een persoonlijk toppertje in de belgium strong ale categorie als het om de blonde variant gaat.

Es una cerveza con carácter, bastante ligera pero con un cuerpo a roble bastante pronunciado.

g_georgiou (325) - CYPRUS - JAN 7, 2015
Slightly hazy yellow body with a medium white diminishing head. Aroma is malt, spice, straw, some herb. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture, dry finish.

MrBeerFanatic (900) - Friona, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy darker caramel color with a boozy head. Aromas of strong aged toffee/caramel, slight barnyard/hay. (Initial thought is ’Why do they call this hopus? There is nothing hoppy about it?) Flavors of strong toffee with some medium caramel, hay and slight barnyard. High sweetness to the effect of a candy-likeness. Overall the toffee dominates every sense here.
