JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Sparkling and clear pale blonde strong ale with more than a hint of orange peel in the nose. Has a moderate, confident bitterness and matching sweetness, very lively, end off-dry. Bittersweet aftertaste. Impressive.

McWorta (482) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 13, 2014
Pours a crystal clear strongly straw coloured beer with a large medium lasting white head. Noses of straw, barnyard, floral hops and hints of herbs. On the palate a medium livelyness occurs with a thin-slick texture with a slender body. The taste moves forward with herb, cough drop notes offering some sweetness and light bitterness. The finish is medium and light bitter.

Plain Bellgian blond beer. Has the typical Belgian traits, but is too watery.

Excalibur123 (62) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Color amarillo pálido. Buena cabeza de espuma blanca que se mantiene; aromas sutiles a levadura, pan, herbales y leve fruta cítrica, en boca entrada suave con cuerpo ligero y bastante carbonatada, amargor equilibrado, al principio no parece que tenga ocho grados pero luego se acaban notando, cerveza aceptable pero sin matices complejos.
