zimbo (739) - - DEC 3, 2012
Strange stake beer aroma in the bottle. GOlden lager type appearance with reasonable one inch white fluffy head. Same unusual smell in the glass. Very fizzy, almost furry, sweet slippery malt. Not overly complex. Lacks harmony and balance.

McWorta (839) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2015
Light hazy with yeast floculation golden colour medium frothy white head. Sweet grapefruit, light spruce, bit earthy floral. Light fizz bit slick texture, sweet earthy malt flavours with some citrussy floral hop flavours. Medium finish. Balanced, unspectecular yet good thirst quencher.

danielyabu (1352) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 21, 2014
average frothy white head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. murky medium-particled thick light-orange body. aroma: moderate hoppy, flowers, citrus orange, alcohol. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: light sweet acidic moderate bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. Aroma lúpulo nobre. Delicioso dulçor frutado lembrando laranja. Vencida um mês atrás, trouxe como defeito o paladar metalizado. Amargor de lúpulo nobre, sem lembrar IPA. Cerveja agradável, saborosa, refrescante, de alta drinkability. Apesasr do baixo ABV, sente-se presença alcoólica leve na segunda metade da cerveja, que não prejudica nenhuma nuance. Leve adstringência cítrica também aparece na segunda metade da cerveja, balanceando bem o resto do conjunto.110 s

mschaefer (26) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
Flesje 33cl tht nov-2016 op 7°C. Bijna helder geel/oranje met stevig schuim. Aroma's: Gras, gist en hop. Smaak is stevig voor de 5%. Mooie hop bitters en gist. Koolzuur gemiddeld, precies goed. Afdronk bitter en lang met een peper bite en een klein vleugje metaal in het begin. Een bier dat heel goed in balans is.

A good Belgian blond with some spiceness and herbal nose and tasting. A Struise is never a bad choise.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
In short: A yeasty and moderately hoppy Belgian blonde ale lacking sparks. Just ok.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh a few days after purchase, almost 1.5 year before expiration date.
The look: Shinning peach color body topped by a persistent medium off-white head.
In long: Nose is very yeasty, wort, sweaty hops, fresh grass. Foamy mouthfeel with a very lively typical belgian ale carbonation. A strange array of flavors. I noted wort, canned peaches, wet grass, whip cream, a certain hoppy fruitiness. Easy to drink even if not really refreshing. Not bad but just not my type of beer. Just another beer that I can rate, writing beer ratings is just one of my hobby, my other hobbies are sitting on the toilet and making people wonder if I write beer ratings while sitting on the toilet.

Alengrin (3001) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Session blonde with Motuecha hops. Off-white, sticky head, hazy golden blonde colour. Aroma of peach, bread, orange peel, green apple, vanilla, melon, field flowers; accessible yet treacherous complex palate, relatively sharp carbo, dry fruitiness, vivid spiciness, bready malt sweetishness in the background, spicy finish with refreshing grassy hops. If only all the top-fermented session blondes were like this.

BrunoSanchez (173) - Fermo, ITALY - AUG 25, 2014
Blond belga sperimentale fatta con un solo luppolo neozelandese "motuecha" che da il nome alla birra. Molto bella l’etichetta tipo fumetto. Bionda con schiuma pannosa di media persistenza. Al naso sentori speziati e lievito. In bocca corpo medio, leggera frizzantezza ed un punto acido. La bassa gradazione la rende beverina e leggera. Il sapore è sempre speziato e luppolato. Questa è una "new belgian" fatta abbastanza bene.

A good pacific saison, nothing incredible but with a nice hoppy exotic punch, sweet but balanced when young, good body and soft carbonation.
