sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
(Bottled, BBE 08/2009, thanks TBone!)Opaque orange with a small, firm, mostly vanishing head. Strongly orange-honey-fruity aroma with some yeast. Orange-fruity flavor with grainy, pale maltiness, and some slightly burning, sweetish-acidic alcohol presence. Medium-bodied, warming palate with pretty low, but slightly fizzy carbonation. A decent, orange-accented Belgian Strong - but still miles away from Dulle Teve (the benchmark 10% Belgian Strong blond ;) complexity-wise.

Bottle. [thank you, dedollewaitor]
[at dedollewaitor’s Odense tasting]
Pours light hazy yellow with a fine medium, frothy white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is yeast and light maltiness. Super mouthfeel. Flavour is highly vinious, lightly metallic, a bit sweet, some apple. Far too much alcohol!

Yves (2346) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2008
Goldblond beer with white head. Marzipan like aroma. Sweet palate. Finish is bitter and bit alcoholic. Not the best one.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2008
Thick-set, creamy & cream-coloured head, irregular and leaving lace over hazy dark-orange beer. White candi sugar, quite citrussy with a point of sourness suggested, and some alcohol. Dried citrus leaves. Dry-bitter beer, with a leafy character, and almost imperceptible sour tang. Some sweetness on the palate, but faint. Again citrus flavours. Alcohol comes out in the palate, which is pretty dry. Medium to well-bodied, despite all the sugar-derived alcohol. Nice beer, the nearly bitter dryness conforts me in the tale I’ve been spun, that this is a differently sweetened exportversion from the Kapittel Blond.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2008
Bottled. A hazy light orange coloured beer with little head. The aroma is sweet fruits, hops and a little pepper. The taste is spicy peppery with warming alcohol. Certainly reminiscent of a tripel. Pretty good.
