monk191 (1750) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2016
A decent Belgian blonde. Pours an ugly clear yellow. Smells of lemongrass and herbs. Taste is lemon, citrus and wheat and herbs. Paired with sushi, very good, brings out a sweetness and plums. Had in the bottle.

330ml bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Hondeghem. Pours clear gold with medium white head. Lightly sweet yeast aroma. Fairly easy-going, lightly sweet Belgian bonde. Not a lot going on but nice enough.

jice (312) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 26, 2016
porte presque trop bien son nom. Douce, presque trop, nez et aromes miel et agrumes, alcool trop présent en bouche. Définitivement pas à classer parmi les bières à déguster, mais pour s’alcooliser avec des potes - d’où le nom ?

LeWorm (61) - FRANCE - APR 6, 2016
En bouteille 33cl. Fine mousse et peu de bulles. Nez miel houblon. Miel au goût aussi et un peu d’agrumes. Palais alcoolisé et long, pas très agréable. Une bonne bière sans prétention.

ciocanelu (1320) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 26, 2016
Clear golden color with a bit of white head. Aroma is yeasty, sweet, quite clean and classic belgian. Taste starts yeasty with sweet malts and some booze. Finish is slightly bitter but still yeasty. Body is light to medium with high carbonation. Classic Belgian, nothing special here.

imdownthepub (13228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Keg at Le Chopping, Lille, France. Gold with white head. Light, tinnish and quite sweet from the start, pretty bland really particularly for the strength. Few of the normal Belgian Ale attributes. Not for me.
