Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Strong blonde ale with thick, firm, moussy, cream white head and peach blonde colour, hazy. Very fruity aroma, hints of pineapple, banana, orange, lemon, grassy hops, white pepper, honey, coriander. Fresh, vivid fruitiness in the mouth too, quite strong carbo at first, sweetish with citrus touch, caramel malt base, grassy hops in the finish with warming alcohol. Ordinary but well-made, in fact remarkably better than what I am used to from Huyghe.

Een bier van dertien in een dozijn, weinig smaak aan dit bier, ik vond het teleurstellend

VDuquerroux (276) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 8, 2014
On tap, 25cL. @El Mexicano, Bressuire, France. A clear golden beer with a medium white head. Medium persistence. Aroma of herbs, citrus fruit, alcohol. Medium refreshing bitter, light sweet. Medium body and texture. Average carbonation, light bitter finish. Not dry. Overall, a good average belgian ale "abbey-style".

ruigo (1110) - PORTUGAL - MAR 19, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is hay, malt and a bit yeast. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet, with some strange notes. Dry finish. Overall, nice...

erickok (3548) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Misty golden oker body, small head. Light sweet malts, cardamon, simple malts. Drinkable, not too sweet but certainly added sugar here. Sticky ending after a boring body. Not much to this one. More alcohol than necessary. Not recommended. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 16, 2013
Dobre ale niezbyt rewelacyjne piwo. Jak na belgie mala piana, Za to sporo drozdzy i o sporych ksztaltach fruwajacych po calym pokalu. Zapach cytrusowo octowy. W smaku slodowo z domieszka jakby kwasku cytrynowego. Pelny zlocisto zolty kolor.

Benzai (8233) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle shared with Joes, Ansjelaah, Dutchdrebus and Martinus. Clear yellowish color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, some banana and sweetness. Hmm not a very good blond I would say.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2013
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of banana, phenol, cloves and yeast. Sweet flavour, banana, light malts. Very sweet! Sweet finish, banana and light malts.
(From 33cL bottle @ Oirschot tasting. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)
