after4ever (6103) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2008
750, corked and baled. This is evidently an older bottle. Not sure how much older, but it has the tan label with green text, and just calls itself "Moinette Belgian Ale." And it’s awesome.
Pours cloudy medium amber with bright gold highlights and a towering fluffy platinum blonde head. Big bold funks horse blanket and old wet grass nose. Almost overpowering at first, but not after a minute, and never unpleasant at all. Doesn’t show much lace but the film that sticks around is thick and egg-white-y.
Lovely creamy medium body with plenty of churning carbonation. Caramel, funky horseblanket, old wet grass, and a bit of herbal hop on the mid-palate. This is sooooo much more farmhouse than abbey, but who cares what they call it? It’s fantastic. I’ll snag any of these bottles I can get my hands on. Not sure how the stuff with the yellow label (pictured) is drinking.

Een van de lekkerste blonde bieren dat ik ooit gedronken heb. Echt een aanrader.

Jabic (416) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Ar: Pear, peach, orange peel - some light toasted malt - rosy perfume. Ap: Golden and hazy - medium white head with moderate retention, leaves a finely bubbled ring and spotty cover of foam. T: Peach, banana, and rose - warming - perfume and medium-low, herbal bitterness - some honey and strawberry - finish is more peach and banana. P: Light body with very high carbonation - finish is dry. O: A good saison, though not my favorite Dupont offering - the fruit, light malt, and spice characters are all present.

Jado (507) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
From 340 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a lasting white head and lively carbonation. Some yeast in suspension evident. Aromas of fresh apples, cloves, banana, pepper and flowers. Taste is sweet apple and peach at first, giving way to some prickly lemon zest and pepper bitterness. Slips off to light banana and clove towards the end. Creamy mouth feel and a spicy aftertaste. Good stuff.

GoufCustom (793) - HONG KONG - JUL 26, 2014

330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Cloudy hazy light muddy-straw colour with thin layer of yeast sediments; Half finger head and crumpety white foam which lasted for 1 minute. Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Pils-like malt, with strong grapefruit, passion fruit, banana, strong vanilla, light sugar, honey, very strong Bel yeast, bread, dough, nice phenolics and spices.

Taste: Medium sweet malt, with very fresh grapefruit, strong fresh lime, strong floral nectar, molasses, nice phenolic, strong Bel yeast, strong bitter hops and strong sharp grass.

Body: Mid to light. Slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly good Pils maltyness. Taste is driven by very fresh and fruity grapefruit, citrus and sharp grass. Strong but non-cloying floral nectar sweetness which blends well with the hops. Really nice! Light bready, good phenolic, it reminds me of Brugse Zot but with a more intense and thorough taste. Great!

Hoppiness: Intense fresh grapefruit, lime, passionfruit, floral in aroma and taste. Bitterness is very strong , a couple pars below German Pils, still really astringent and sharp grass to balance the sweetness very nicely for a long lasting moderately bitter finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Creamy, very fruity and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: This is more or less a stronger version of Brugse Zot: its ester and fruits maybe a little less varied, but just as refreshing, tasty and strong. Topped with intensely strong hops, matching strong sweetness and smooth taste. Its shabby looks maybe forgiven. Taste and good vibes is all that matter, and this one is a stand out Strong Belgian Pilsener, much more so than Duvel. Highly recommended!

fantti (687) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin 2,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksusta tulee mieleen melko paljon La Chouffe, samanlaista yrttisen ja mausteisen sitrusmaista tuntumaa löytyy. Mausteinen hiivaisuus etualalla, sitrus hieman taaempana. Korianterimaista yrttisyyttä tuntuu hiivan lomassa. Myös vehnäolutmaista banaaniesteriä löytyy tuoksuttelemalla. Maussa banaanimaiset ja sitrusmaiset vivahteet iskevät vahvimpana vastaan, pippurimaisen ja korianterisen mausteisuuden kutitellessa taustalla. Kukkainen humalointi ottaa lopussa suun valtaansa tukevoittaen makua. Suutuntuma on hyvin humaloitu ja samalla melko täyteläinen ja tukeva, jopa yllättävän tuhti. Hieno vaalea belgi, jossa samoja vivahteita kuin arvostamassani La Chouffessa ollen hieman napakammin humaloitu ja hivenen tuhdimpi tapaus. Vehnäolutmaisia aromeja on myös mukana, vaikkei vehnää ole käytetty. Hieno olut.

Chrishrt30 (98) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
Very pale straw colour with light thin white head. Strong citrus, candy and bread aroma, with a good strong hit of Belgium yeast. A nice heavy mouthfeel, champagne like carbonation. Sweet honey and citric, bubblegum, spicy herbs and cinnamon. A nice dry finish, fine light hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a hazy gold with foamy head and fresh floral aroma. Vibrant blond flavours, aromatic, floral, a touch of spice all impeccably blended with a teasing dry bitterness on the finish. A beautiful blond.
