scanovajr (627) - Rio de Janeiro, - OCT 20, 2012
Bottled. A clear golden beer with a large airy frothy head. Aroma is sweet and belgian yeast. Taste is sweet and malty, alcoholic notes, grassy, light caramel and some spiceness. Quite bitter finish. Medium body and high carbonation

gopherfan99 (457) - CROATIA - SEP 13, 2014
Flip top bottle; pours gold with a big, white head; has a sweet aroma of citrus, malt, and a hint of yeast; taste is less hoppy than I expected due to the name but good none the less, light bittersweet with malt, citrus, and some caramel; has a dry, light bitter finish; overall this was a hoppy as I was expecting but still a good, smooth drinking beer.

blackruss (17) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 13, 2014
very malty in smell and taste, golden, couldy in colour, with a nice frothy head. Quite floral on the aftertaste. Was expecting to be a bit on the hoppy side due to the name, but it wasn’t. Was a nice strong belgian ale.

bartlebier (1718) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
33cl fliptops bought 2013, on draught @Waterhuis a/d Bierkant, Gent - backlog. Pours eminently Belgian golden-copper with mountainous rocky head, barely contained by its tall bulb glass. Never really hoppy enough to justify its name, but pleasantly herbal and fresh on draught to deal with the toasty Belgian ale substratum of lean & laden Vienna/caramalts and excess oomph. Elegantly balanced and solidly bitter hopped (East Kent Goldings? + Fuggle?) considering that amped abv, but relying on a traditional recipe, merely packing some gentle surplus floral and earthy aroma hops. Drinks almost as easily as a UK ESB at double its strength, not necessarily offering twice the subtlety in taste.

Vignale (2059) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Disig gyllenfärgad med ett högt kompakt långsamt sjunkande skum som lämnar fina gardiner. Doft av jäst, lite källare, hö och örter. Stor kropp med värmande alkoholen, skummig och rund i munnen fruktig sötma, söta äpplen och päron, lite honung, påtaglig beska som är örtig och lite för stor och som inte riktigt känns integrerad och summan blir därför inte lika elegant och fruktig som Duvels humlade varianter. Men ganska gott är det.

33cl flesje bij Boterhal, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 8,3% Uitgeschonken in originele hoge Hopen glas Uiterlijk: blond, witte schuimkraag, veel koolzuur Aroma en smaak: redelijk bitter, al vind ik het meevallen als op het etiket 'straf, bitter en blond' staat vermeld. Conclusie: lekker biertje, goed mondgevoel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 750ml bottle from St. Veronus. Received to Veronus 03/14, no bottled date. Diam classic corked bottle. Abundant white frothy head. Traditional Euro IPA floral notes on aroma. Not as hoppy as expected. Alcohol and herbalness on finish.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from a colleague at work. Clear gold lasting thick white head. It’s an ok strong Belgian blond. It’s fine. A bit bland. A bit boozy. Fine but very simple Belgian ale.

Bozo_skeleton (500) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 24, 2014
Blonde grosse carbo et gros collet. Aromes fruités et fleuris. Un peu sucrée mais bien contrebalancée par l’amertume.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a golden yellow colour, consistent haziness with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite subtle with a little fruitiness and some floral scents. The taste is unique and quite sweet with a noticeable bitter kick in the sip. Light body, thinner mouth feel, and lively carbonation. Interesting beer overall.
