Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2012
#1246 Leicht hefig-säuerliches Blonde mit kaum herben Noten. Plätschert ganz nett die Kehle runter, ohne irgendwelche Akzente zu setzen. Der große belgische Einheitsbrei, boring beer!

Swaroga (1389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2011
75cl bottle. Pours a clear golden with an aggressive but dissipating quickly, white head. Nose : Fresh fruity : cherry, raspberry and little banana. Little clove. Small notes of alcohol. Caramel malts. Sip : almost mouthful body with good carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel malts change quickly into sour clove dryness. Overall I don’t appreciate champagne bubbles in my beer, unfortunately some of my best beers are like that : ex. Saison Dupont.

pivnizub (8920) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle: Golden, mid-sized fluffy off-white head, sweet grainy nose with a tinge of perfume and alcohol; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; bisquity finish with hardly detectable hops in the aftertaste. Quite an uniforme beer......

Countbeer (4539) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle: Medium white head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell fruit, spices, herbs, yeast, light hint of something grainy. Taste light sweet, some honey, malts, yeast, fruit, light caramel, medium bitter. Nice malty light bitter, light fruity herby aftertaste. Medium to fuller carbo, tingly bit sharp mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Decent, but nothing special.

olsvammel (3285) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It poured a pale clear golden liquid with a white head. Taste and smell of sweet malts, honey and sugar. Slightly harsh mouthfeel, medium thick body and high amount of carbonation.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Blonde beer with a strong head. The aroma is fruity and citrus, and the flavour is warmingly citrus, fruity and mildy spiced / aniseedy. Overall a nice Belgian ale.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of peaches, orange and spicy hints of coriander. Fruity, slightly spicy taste with apricots, citrus and a spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Well balanced and quite tasty.

Noctilucus (101) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2010
Hazy golden blonde colour, almost as cloudy as a witbier. At first the taste hints of honey but without its sweetness (think a lighter version of Barbãr) but sharper than most beers of this type. Definitely makes one think of coriander. The aftertaste is less bitter and has a subtle touch of malt in there. Overall a nice, enjoyable brew though nothing special. And surprisingly enough I’d almost recommend this one as a thirst quencher, in spite of the relatively high ABV (7.5%) as it lacks a bit of body for me.

Hansen (6768) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
Orange and unclear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Malty aroma, faint spicy notes. Flavor is heavy sweet, lots of fruit, spice too, light acidic and moderate bitter. Some hoppy notes in the flavor. Lively carbonation.
