ruigo (2034) - - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Tastes a little of wheat but the flavour is quite smooth since it has a lively carbonation.

suurjuust (2589) - ESTONIA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden amber beer, medium white head. Nose is caramel, malt, yeast, hoppy notes. Flavor is malty, some spice and blegian yeast, watery caramel. Hops in the finish with acidic maltiness. Fruity-hoppy finish with "belgian" notes in the retronasals. Not bad, a bit plain.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from Alcostock in Tallinn harbour (€ 2.49). BB 06.2017. Pours clear pale golden with a big creamy white head. Soapy lace, good retention. The aroma is that of typical Belgian yeast, it’s somewhat spicy, fruity esters. Tastes bittersweet, sugary. Quite unsatisfying on the palate, doesn’t really fill your mouth. It leaves a vague dryness and some indistinct vapours in the mouth. As such it’s what I consider a pretty mindless drinking beer that you shouldn’t really savour... Then again, it’s 6%. Palate dryish, body near watery light, somewhat grainy (wheaty) texture, abrupt bitterish finish. Overall - average. The aroma saves it. Edit: so does pouring in the yeast, it acquires a whole lot of character... had it been like this from the start, I’d have given it a 3.4 easily.

Leckeres Blond. Punktabzug für zu viel Kohlensäure. Im Aroma sehr intensiv, stark "belgische" Noten, Ester, Hefe. Im Geschmack weniger intensiv, süß und wenig Hopfen. Bittere gering.
