xpedite (15) - Borsbeek, - JUN 25, 2013
This beer is marketed pretty intensive in Belgium,and with the story behind it,I was expecting something decent. However, the dissapointment was shocking ( ok, maybe a little exagerated). I really did not like the combination of the doughy;very sweet taste together with the sourness. However,in due time I will try it again and update the review.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a stable and large white head, with livingly CO2. The aroma is spicy, with also light tones of vanilla, cloves, bananas and citrus. The taste is refreshing and soft. The Co2 is well noticable, and combines perfectly with the fruity tones of tangerines and the spiciness of nutmeg. This beer is light bitter in the end, which is very pleasant. The finish is short with light tones of cinnamon and vanilla.

minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
330ml bottle from Beer me up Scotty, Shrewsbury Market Hall. Kinda liked the label so bought on impulse. Wish I’d not bothered really. A bit unspectacular, a little sweet for a Belgian blonde with a slight breadiness coming through. Ok, but that’s it.

TBone (14160) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle at Spaarbank,Tilburg. Hazy yellow color, medium-sized white head. Grassy hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Light fruity, Belgian yeasty flavor. Some grassy notes but otherwise low bitterness. More or less unexciting blonde.

Xstream (203) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2015
Veel prijzen gewonnen blijkbaar, maar mij kan t me niet echt bekoren. Wat zurig, wat wit bier, licht hoppig. Tis een mengelmoes van alles en werkt daardoor niet echt voor mij.

Batavi (143) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
Fles gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in groot tulp bierglas. Goudgeel troebel bier, met een prachtige volle hagelwitte schuimkraag, die blijft kleven aan het glas. De geur is zeker weer de typisch Belgische gist, met zacht kruidige koriander en citrustonen. De smaak is erg verfrissend, licht zurig en kruidig. Met tonen van zachte graan mouten, koriander, citrusfruit en zacht bittere hop. De afdronk is medium lang, kruidig en zacht bitter. Heel mooi en ongecompliceerd zomerbier, met een nagenoeg perfecte smaakbalans. Dit Seef bier doet mij ook denken aan een witbier als Hoegaarden, maar dan sterker en kruidiger. Een aanrader als een echt Belgisch bier, vooral erg geschikt in de zomer op het terras. Drinkt wel heel erg makkelijk weg, wat ook iets zegt over de kwaliteiten van dit bier. Het etiket geeft ook aan dat dit bier meerdere prijzen heeft gewonnen.

Gangstergafje (245) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
The beer has a beautiful golden yellow color. There is some cloudiness. The beer has a beautiful white layer of creamy foam. The beer has a nice smell. A nice bitter beer smell, reminds me of Westmalle Tripel. Also the taste has a little Westmalle in it. Bitter, little sour and refreshing. Nice.

superspak (3394) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 9/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/earthy yeast spiciness and light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with nice malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
