Hallstein (393) - Skogn, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2015
Aroma is very fruity and spicy. Flavor-wise this beer is well balanced with spicy flavors of bubblegum and fruityness. Delicious finish. Dont notice the alcohol at all. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (1195) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 19, 2015
Opaque deep golden with a frothy dark white medium lasting white head. Aromas of barnyard, cheese in a positive way, yeast, some earthyness and a splash of fruity esters. Softly carbonated with a slick texture and a full body. Some sweetness dominates yet some light acidity and floral bitterness arises. Lasting faintly dry finish.

Lore (1761) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 19, 2015
opalescent yellow colour, huge white head; aroma of grains, hay, earthy yeasty notes, some fruitiness and minimal alcohol; taste is the same with spicy notes; great Belgian strong ale

Lukasmh (776) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy and cloudy holden with nice one finger creamy white head. Aroma is very yeasty, candied sugar, sweet, phenolic, flowery, peach, pear and more yeast. Some heather honey. Taste is sweet and yeasty, but quite phenolic and spicy. Peat, grape, dry alcohol, flowery. Medium to full body, light bitter finish. A surprise, not a blonde in my world.

Zlotta (823) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Drankenservice Francoise, bottled in February 2015. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, slowly collapsing, creamy, white head. Fruity-spicy aroma of peach, lemon zest, gooseberry, vanilla and white grapes. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of banana, lemon zest, gooseberry and vanilla, followed by a yeasty, earthy and slightly bitter finish dominated by banana. Medium body, effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very delicious beer, no alcohol detectable but just slightly warming and very well-balanced. Not really overwhelming qua taste or aroma but so well-crafted and quaffable.

UXO (1120) - CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of fluffy pure white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: Dupont yeast with saison notes, apple and pear, light citrus, faint herbal. (9/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, very mild tart and funk. (8/10) Palate: light body, moderate to lively carbonation, dry crisp finish. (4/5) Seems to bridge the gap between BSPA and saison, to good effect. A very well-behaved classically Belgian ale that is going down a treat after a hard day’s physical labour in the heat and humidity. It’s also worth pointing out what’s not present: the ABV is very restrained, making this near-double-digit ale quite sessionable. (17/20)

suprchunk (2779) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Golden amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Sugary nose. Sugary taste. Dry as well. Not the best beer out there, but if someone offered me one I’d see what else they had...

lello4ever (398) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2015
Arancio chiara con ampio cappello di schiuma frizzantina. Aroma fresco erbaceo e floreale. Eccellente bevuta, rinfrescante, note floreali, dolcezza perfetta. Media frizzantezza, ottimo corpo con alcol che sostiene bene la bevuta.

Dervock (723) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle - pours pale orange with lots of floating yeast. Aroma is sweet malt, Apple, spice and a little citrus. Taste is sweet upfront with a rapid transition to a spicy alcohol finish. Palate is a bit thinner than expected.
