tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 6, 2013
On draught at Nob Hill Bar & Grille. Poured in ornate logo’ed goblet. Slight but lasting white head and lace. Deep amber color. Served very cold but estery aromas still evident. Early malty sweetness was well-matched to a mellow hop bitterness. Subtle Belgian yeast character. Overall, seemed like a big blonde or a light tripel. OKAY.

lachneger (285) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Pils kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Veel CO2. Smaak erg zoet ( te zoet) gedronken in Frankrijk

maeib (8672) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottled 08/08/14. A blonde beer with a white head. A nice hoppy Belgian Strong style ale. Good booze and nice hops. No spicy sting but seems to edge towards Duvel territory. A bit of bread in the malts. Nice stuff.

Mothroy (79) - - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Mid golden colour with a sparse white head. Clean, wheat, maize and malt body balanced with a powerful hop bitterness. For a strong beer a distinct lack of sweetness. Very drinkable but dangerous.

adster (262) - HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2014
Puha, krémes habbal a tetején csordogál poharába a a főzet. Erőteljes, kissé szúrós szagú, fanyar élesztő uralja a képet, mely mögött egy igen élénk, csípősen savanykás, lényegében számottevő utóíz nélküli test húzódik. Meglehetősen homogén ízvilág, ez azonban nem gátol meg abban, hogy egy kellemes darabként gondoljak rá vissza a későbbiek során.

thewolf (11177) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours very clear golden with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has metal, maize, esters, malts, light grass. Medium to low carbonation, oily and fat mouthfeel. Flavour has sweetness, quite warming viniousness, a tad boozy, apple schnapps, malty, some Belgian sugar. Short, rather sharp finish. Blah.

Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2014
from Morteau, France - clear dark golden beer with a modest foam left; estery and sweetish fruity aroma; very sweet and full-bodied, light spicy and acidic; lot of residual sweetness and more estery fruity tones

Helsdon (149) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Blond orange with a little cloud. Finger of white dense head. Nose of malt a little bubble-gum an some bitter hops. Malty up front, bitter hops, surprising honey sweetness on the finish. Feels like it’s missing the whole yeast profile that makes Belgian beers great. Alright beer but...

sonnycheeba (3507) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light with fizzy white head. Aroma is honey, floral notes, light cereal and toast, and some apple. Flavor is dry and sweet; mostly honey, pear, and floral esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (2091) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2014
From a bottle. Pours clear light gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like raisin, grapes, pears, honey, pretty sweet with light dryness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dry honey, cracker malt, pear and grapes.

Lele (107) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Birra particolare, con tanti sapori mischiati insieme (e non sempre in maniera armoniosa). Si percepiscono il fruttato, l’acidulo e l’amaro. Da abbinare decisamente col pesce.
