UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 Nevelig en bleekgeel bier met witte schuimkraag. Gist duidelijk aanwezig in de neus. Verder aroma van citrushop, mout, suiker en iets van witlof of zo? Smaak is bitter en licht zoet. Levendig co2, goede film, volle body.

bierkoning (11949) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2015

kraddel (5726) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours unclear blonde, good white, stable head. Smell is bit yeasty. Taste is bit bitter, very grainy, clear yeasty notes. Rather high cabro, sharp, dry finish. Ok beer. Not really intense, or different. Has something off in the bitterness, but perhaps its just some kind of yeast I am not a fan of.

RW80 (1839) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
330 ml, bottle. Appearance: Hazy golden , with big white head, a bit thin but with good retention. Leaving medium lacing. Aroma: Malts, yeast light fruity notes emerging from the back and some alcohol as it warms up. Taste: Moderate sweet and bitter,, Quite Fruity,( peaches, apricots) some l floral notes and some yeast and alvcohol in the finish. Bitterness at the start and aftertaste. Medium t body, Above average carbonation, but still ok for the body. Decent but the Alpaide (dark ) is much better. This just a standard Belgian Strong Ale.

Moravius (1041) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Belgiumbeerz.com. - Dunkles Goldgelb, trüb; wenig Schaum. - In der Nase schwere Kandissüße, schwache Bitterorange, etwas Pfeffer. - Im Antrunk schwere Malzsüße, leichtes Karamelmalz und eine ordentliche krautige Hopfenherbe. Schaumig rezent. Im Abgang noch mehr krautig-grasige Hopfenherbe. Sehr langer, kräftig bitterer Nachtrunk mit Pfeffer und Fusel. - Solide und deutlich kräftiger gehopft als andere Blondes, aber die einseitig krautigen Hopfenaromen sind nicht so ganz mein Ding.
