ExpendableHero (762) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pale gold, almost clear beer with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of apples and some spices. Tastes of candy sugar, rice/wheat, some banana, and lots of apple flavors. A bit too citric and sweet, kind of like an apple cider. Sweet, boozy finish. Effervescent with lively carbonation. Refreshing brew. While it is not a bad beer it does not represent the style too well. Average.

EddyBeer1 (908) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée, légèrement aqueuse, notes d’acétone, fade, légère amertume. Haacht is blurp!

Grzesiek79 (3267) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Troszke slabienkie to piwo, owszem ma ladna i trwala pianke, zabawna etykiete oraz zapach morelowy. Nie jest metne co wole, zlociste niczym pilsner. Ale w smaku za slodkie, zgaga przy szybszym piciu murowana, Alkohol nie do konca ukryty. Zdecydowanie za slodkie, brak tu kontry chmielowej

LeFaune (6) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2014 does not count
Discreet alcohol and sugar aroma, quite delicate. Apparence is common, without much bubbles nor foam, golden. Taste a bit salty, very balanced. Very light palate, a bit fizzy, numbing. A strong one, you know it from the start, but a solid one.

Alengrin (2180) - BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
"Bière blonde des Flandres" made for the French market and since years brewed by Haacht. Snow white, creamy, medium thick, sticky head, very pale golden blond colour, clear with calm sparkling. Aroma has DMS (cooked vegetable) apart from grass, dough, cloves, minerals, green apple, apple peel and some ’wet dog’. Rounded, soft palate, sweet to the point where it almost becomes sugary, apple, fresh and light, grassy hop bitterishness in the finish with somewhat astringent, gin-like alcohol. Straightforward and clearly Duvel-inspired, but not at all of the same level.
