Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Disig gyllengul vätska med lågt vitt skum. En torr, stram, frisk blond med mycket geuzefunkighet. Lätt syrlighet, småbubblig, lätt stram beska med aningen grapesmak. Färskt trä, grape, druvskal, lite gröna tanniner. Det här är riktigt riktigt bra. Sammanfattar på många sätt det unika med den belgisk ölkulturen. Stor öl i litet format.

Bière jaune avec un beau de col mousse. Nez fruité de raisin et blanc et cranberries. En bouche, légère amertume et acidité assez désagréable. Bof Bof

shoulderbroken (1887) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle from Craft webshop. Slightly cloudy blonde colour, with small white head. Aroma is Belgian yeasty, bit fruity, quite boozy, white wine almost. Taste is alright, grainy, boozy again and a touch of fruit. Dry. Not so exciting, but nice.

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2013
Pours very cloudy. Smells alot like wheat, yeast. Taste: very high carbo. Very strong in the start with something like peaches goes over into a hoppy, dry finish. Not brilliant, not bad either.

Tap at the school house. Nicely hoppy blond, light, clean malts. Very good balance, good bitterness, dry finish. Not great, but nice.

AshtonMcCobb (2356) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2013
33cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden orange and bright. Nice head. Nose - flowers perhaps going into custard. Taste - some dried orange and some herbaceousness on the finish. Palate - medium to full bodied, a lovely creamy texture and a dry clean finish. Overall - it’s not an exceptional blonde but it falls nicely in the band that makes it tasty and drinkable. It definitely drinks like a Belgian Ale.

330ml bottle from De Struise webshop. Pours hazy yeelow with a good long--lasting head. Aromas are bready malts, wheat, light citrus and herb hops. Taste has a lemony zing, light spice, more floral hops. Good balance of bitter and sweet. A good summer beer.
