bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange gold with a great frothy white head. Smells of citrus and vanilla. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavors are fairly mild. Citrus, light malt, maybe some clove. It’s a good beer, just hard to pin down. Ends on the bitter side.

Pinball (10798) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009
33cl bottle, brown and green label, 7% called christmas blond, double blond abbay beer. i hope it is the same as this one here. pours cloudy orange. lively beer but didn’t get out of the bottle itself. large head that soon collapses. aroma of yeast, cheese, spices, alc. faint citric fruity note keeps it interesting. flavor is rather average or below average for a belgian beer, but it does taste good. nice harmfull blonde with no strings attached. end is very non-bitter, almost as if something is missing.

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Süßlicher Antrunk mit deutlichen Kräuternoten und dezenter Herbe. Die Kräuternoten werden zunehmend süßer, ansonsten wird das Bier aber schnell milder. Zum Ende ist es das helle Malz, das sehr süß und etwas alkoholisch wirkt. Süßmalziger, etwas plörriger Abgang. 8/7/8/7/7/7
