Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Over a year old. The colour is slightly hazy dark straw and has a big, white, creamy head. Very carbonated. Aroma of alcohol, Belgian yeast, citrus and spices. Pleasant. The flavour is similar with warming alcohol, spices and Belgian yeast. Rich and slick mouth feel, and has a light to medium bitterness. A rich and tasteful Belgian strong ale, but the alcohol shines through and makes it a bit unbalanced.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden to orange with a large white head. Aroma of spicy sweet malts, floral, yeast, fruity. Taste is sweet, malty, fruity, a bit spicy. Yeast and alcohol in the aftertaste. Nice.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 28, 2014
Pours a hazy glowing gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is spicy, sweet malts, yeast, light hops. Medium, well-carbonated body. Flavor has nice sweet tones intertwined with plenty of spicy hop notes and a light yeasty finish. Quite refreshing for 10%. Did a great job washing down some summer bratwursts.

rickyleepotts (99) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2014
I keep reading this beer is hoppy, but it’s not. It isn’t sweet, either. It also has a really boring mouthfeel. The cork did break... I was doomed from the beginning. Boo; I wanted this to be good.

Chudwick (2173) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2014
33cl bottle into wrong glass and shared with my dad. Nose Belgian yeast and hay. Slight grassy hop aftertaste. Reminds me more of a saison but is still good. Slight pepper taste. ABV seems lower than it actually is. Lovely.

vickey9 (490) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2014
Hazy yellow with a n unstable head. Nose of coriander, sugar and yeast. Body is full, carbon medium and texture slick. Taste is bitter and sweet. Palate suggests honey, yeast, malt, coriander, bitter herbs. B@H

Good Belgian blond beer. Very yeasty, with a nice fruity hopping and a spicy taste. Good beer.

CEZ (398) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a nice glass, golden body with a good, quickly diminishing, white head. Nose is biscuit, citrus, alcohol, hay. Taste is warm and sweet up front followed by a bittersweet finish. Body is medium. Some alcohol burn, and medicine notes. Can’t really find a mix of interesting flavours or complexity or balance here, so... no, thanks.

SimonBeer (102) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2014
(Drinking date: 8 March 2014) Hazy golden/orange beer with a small layer of head. Looks really delicious. Aromas of lemon, yeast, malts and coreander. But not really powerfull aroma, could be more. Well balanced taste, not too sweet and not too bitter. But a little bit more sweet than bitter. The mouthfeel is really good, a but thick. A little bit too heavy carbonation. It leaves a warm feeling in your mouth and throath. Overall, I am enjoying this beer. One of the better strong blonde beers, that’s why it gets the total score of 3.7 :)
