EddyBeer1 (949) - Brussels, - SEP 8, 2013
Blonde dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-forte, col blanc fin persistant. Bien maltée d’entrée, rapidement suivie par une agréable amertume houblonnée, notes de poivre et de miel. Une très bonne blonde!

Alengrin (2584) - BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2015
Classic Dupont beer, actually a ’strong saison’ and therefore something in between a saison and a tripel. Hazy peach blonde under a thick, ’natural’, sticky, off-white head; fruity, complex yeastiness clearly bearing the Dupont stamp, spicy accents, peppery hop touch, bready malts, medium thick mouthfeel, dryish especially towards the end, funky ’barnyard’ accents, some agreeably warming alcohol in the background, hop bitterish finish, yeastiness lingering. Very enjoyable from tap, small and large bottle: one to seek out.

Lele (167) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 18, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo carico abbastanza torbido. Schiuma biancha, fine abbastanza abbondante e molto persistente (ne rimane sempre qualche millimetro nel bicchiere). AROMA: decisamente l’aroma dei lieviti, unito ad un tocco di erbaceo e floreale, nonché di frutti aciduli. GUSTO: spettacolare! vari gusti combinati insieme in modo superbo: fruttato (frutta gialla), erbaceo, ma anche del liquoroso.

Drunk from 33cl bottle in Ultime atome. Fantastic blond hoppy ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ragnampiza (545) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 6, 2015
330 ml bottle. Dark golden yellow, pretty hazy, with a small, bubbly and moderately persistent white head. Very fruity upfront: peaches/apricots, mature pears, some grapey notes too. Then bread crusts, fruit esters from the yeast and a subtle hint of alchool. More thin than I was expecting but very smooth and velvety, definitely more sweet than bitter. Slightly acidic and mildy astringent in the background. Pleasent malty and honey like taste, slightly spicy and peppery aftertaste. The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Solid.

Gylo (140) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bardzo bogaty aromat dro?d?owo chlebowy z nut? suszonych owoców. ?adnie si? pieni, smak ?agodny praktycznie bez goryczki, jednak mocno gazowane i oczywi?cie typowy posmak belgijskich s?odów tak porz?dany i niepodrabialny.

AdiBeer (1626) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Aroma: straw, some hay, cereals and bread malts, some honey and caramel. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, small to medium, frothy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: cereal malts continue sweet, yet bitters intensifying quickly, getting dry, yeast, lively carbonation, full body. Overall: quite a nice Belgian Strong Ale, nice aroma and palate, bit too fizzy. Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn.

Excalibur123 (213) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2014
Vierte amarillo turbio con levadura en suspensión; media capa de espuma con escasa retención aunque siempre queda un cerco; aromas a levadura belga, manzana, pera, algo de clavo y floral; en boca entrada media y algo alcohólica con amargor moderado; buen cuerpo con carbónico bajo; pos gusto amargo y un tanto seco; cuando coge temperatura se hace más compleja, pero el alcohol se aprecia más de lo aconsejable; aunque esta botella de cerveza le hace falta más guarda para que se acabe redondeando, caduca 6/2017

Muggus69 (1306) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2014
330mL bottle BB 11/2016 Looks the goods - slightly hazy straw body with good sized tightly pack head sitting above. Nose has a good kick to it; typical Belgian yeast character to it; clove, white pepper, ripe banana & pear esters, some white sugar & cereal malt undertones. Full bodied, creamy texture, carries plenty of weight - you know there’s plenty of booze there, without it being too warm. Lifted carbonation. Palate starts sweet - lots of white sugar, pale malt/golden syrup sweetness, combines with candied bananas, pear drops, dried apricot, and finally leading onto phenolic pepper & clove spices, a hint of floral hop and moderate-to-high bitterness on a dry finish. Rather tasty Belgian blond.

tricksta_p (1422) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Aroma of malt, yeast, ripe fruits, spicy yeast, light hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. Body is excellent, great balance. Great example of Belgian style ale.

kerenmk (2652) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle at Trollekeldar. Opaque blond with a big white head. Dust, yeasty bitter aroma, some bubblegum. Tastes yeasty and bitter, a little plastic undertones. Full body, carbonated, mildly bitter finish.
