Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2001
dark orange colour, fine head, yeasty, very discreet aroma, oily and heavy, very long spicy and bitter finish - strange and disappointing (for a belgian)

Pinball (11939) - 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.
