angel77 (1093) - oviedo, - FEB 18, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo, tomada un montón de veces en el lúpulo durante 2010. Muy buena cerveza belga con bastante cuerpo y sabores dulces y maltosos pronunciados todo ello con un buen nivel de alcohol. Buena y para repetir sin problemas.

VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A golden orange opaque beer with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium white head ; poor retention. Herbal aroma, fruit (citrus-orange), biscuit. Medium sweet (light sugar, warming), medium dry refreshing bitter. Triple taste. Medium to full body, silky texture, good carbonation, dry bitter finish with a warming background. Overall, nice aroma, powerful. Good balance.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 3, 2014
Blond body, okay head. Sweet malts, fruity belgina yeast, peachy and some grass hops. Malty sugar body, heavy alcohol warmth, only barely saved itself from total disaster by the pleasant lively/heavy carbonation. Really way too much alcohol, but it is at least not artificial and neither is it flavourless. Ugly ass label and ugly ass beer, but sometimes ugly isn’t all bad at all, I suppose. A butherface... great body and you don;t mind the character sometime. (33cl bottle from Bière et Malt)

JefVerstraete (1592) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from a gift. Golden colour, white foam. Rather high carbonation. Fruity aroma with notes of citrus. Alcoholic aftertaste. Light bitter. Not easy drinkable.

kermis (5746) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours a clear big floater dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of yeast, butterscotch, citrus, toffee, caramel malt. Nothing like a blond as the name suggests. Flavor is medium to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Commissioned tripel with creamy but thin head and hazy peach blonde robe. Aroma of honey, apple sauce, biscuit, ginger, white pepper, orange liqueur, caramel candy; fruity taste, some toasted malts, mild bitterish finish with warming alcohol.

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle @ home. Birra ambrata, velata, con schiuma beige fine abbastanza persistente. Aroma fruttato, agrumato, pompelmo giallo. Speziato di cannella e coriandolo. Zucchero di canna e lievito belga. Gusto secco, speziato, leggermente acido. Poco corposa, spigolosa, astringente. Non molto carbonata. Armonica, ma non del tutto equilibrata.

mikske79 (1248) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Een blond bier met spijtig genoeg iets te weinig smaak aan. Ik vond het niets bijzonders.
