pedrodv89 (30) - wetteren, - JAN 21, 2013
from Brouwerij Van Den Bossche Is blonde ale with lots of lemony/grassy hop aroma, very rich white foam and small crisp feel bubbles. Full of spicy, fruity flavors with a heart warming body.

momordgz (287) - - JUN 17, 2015
A good looking ale with a mixture of unbalanced flavours like cabdy, malts and mature fruit. Ok overoll.

Neptune (36) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Aroma is predominantly malty, with some slight fruityness to it. The taste is spicy and herbal with strange woody bitterness at the end.

Vighals (1990) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Brun tåkete med høyt hvitt skum. Litt fruktig lukt, noe karamell. Rask bitter smak som fort forsvinner.

R4N5H (291) - SINGAPORE - APR 25, 2015
Draught at Oosters, Singapore on 18/04/15. Golden colour, slightly cloudy with an off-white creamy head. Soft to medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt, grass and hops. More sweet than bitter. Fruity, malty and a little dry. Strong - the alcohol does come through. Simular to a strong Leffe Blonde. Pretty good.

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2015
330mL bottle from The International Beer Collector BB 06/03/15 Pours a big, rocky, creamy white typically Belgian-looking head atop a slightly cloudy blonde body. Spicy sort of nose - floral herbal, slightly woody hops, bit of nutmeg/clove-like phenolic yeast character. ripe stonefruit note and toasty malt. Rather dry body, some odd phenolic astrigency there, lifted carbonation - boozy might be aiding the dryness. Light touch of sweet malt upfront, obvious white sugary note - not so well integrated - more of those ripe stonefruits, herbal hops. Rather bitter finish, dry, warming. Seems to miss the mark a bit - too boozy, too bitter, maybe both?

Pours Clear golden, aroma is a bit funky. Taste has some bitterness, but lacking character.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 5, 2015
Pale yellow color with some sediments and a big lasting and frothy white head. Aroma is malty with citric and coriander notes. Flavor is very sour and acid, with a long bitter end. Body is average and carbonation is high.

caesar (5799) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2015
Tap @ Weeshuis Schiedam, medium sample. Clear yellow to golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of grassy hop, slight spicy and peppery yeast. Quite bitter for a belgian tripel style beer. Going towards Duvel and Westmalle Tripel, and that’s a compliment. Quite tasty in its grassy and flowery bitterness.

Abio (1773) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2015
Golden coloured brew. A big ugly head, not my thing of foam. Decent grassy and a nice bitterness. OK.
