corkyrory66 (1012) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2015
Blonde refermentée, avec malt d’orge et froment, d’un niveau abv de 6,9 %, comme ne le cache pas son étiquette … Exemplaire très jeune, un an et demi avant sa date. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, avec un tout léger voile de levure (voulu). Bulles fines en colonnes droites, partout dans le verre, moyennement vives. Mousse blanc cassé, bien crémeuse, nappage stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt finement grillé, houblon, levure, amande, massepain. 1ère bouche très souple, à la très belle entame malt/houblon, avec une pointe d’épice, poivre. Arrière-bouche dense, consistante, houblonnée, longue. 2ème au bel ensemble malté, vite suivi d’un goût métallique !! Arrière-bouche moins heureuse que la 1ère. 3ème qui descend nettement en harmonie. Arrière-bouche défectueuse. Longueur au manque d’harmonie certain, mais il y a des notes valables. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure amère, peu constituée, ligne faible. Alcool actif, mais il ne peut soutenir l’ensemble. Finale avec quelques notes houblonnées valables. CONCLUSION : une bière qui descend sur la dégustation, en partant de très beaux nez et 1ère bouche, pour arriver à une blonde basique. 69 est tombé de son piédestal ...

erickok (4466) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
My bottle had Soixante-Neuf fully written out, 5-6%. Cloudy orange body. Sweet Belgian yeast, full of fermenting peachy fruit esters, but a bit underdeveloped. Citrus (hop ?), bready, residual sugar. Fairly bitter, nice, and also not clean at all, which is fine for the style. Bit boozy though, even at this abv. It’s not a bad attempt. With their branding and naming everything is wrong, but their beer is (therefore?) above expectation. (33cl bottle from ABC Drinks Prik&Tik Leuven)

Borresteijn (5648) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2014
33cl Bottle as Soixante-Neuf. Slightly hazy golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of hay, malts, flour, floral, light fruity and yeasty. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, floral, some honey, relatively dry, light spicy, coreander, yeast, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied. OK, but very generic Belgian Blonde. If it were a bit less sweet it’d be a lot better imho.

Now sold as "Soixante Neuf" - Hazy dark blond. Yeasty aroma. Flavour has quite a lot of malt, candy sweetness and a yeasty edge.

blackisle (1373) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2014
As Soixante-Neuf, bottle 33cl. Cloudy with floaties, yellow golden color, big frothy white head, recedes slowly, substantial layer remains; aroma sweet malts, grainy, banana, orange, yeasty, slightly sour; taste moderate sweet, slightly bitter, fruity sour undertones; medium body, oily to sticky texture, lively carbonation; finish fresh and light bittersweet, grassy, earthy. Not bad at all but a beer without direction.

Alengrin (3685) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Special ale with snow white head, quickly decreasing, and deep peach blonde colour, hazy. Noble and perfumed aroma of marzipan, bread, cinnamon, cognac, apple peel, orange liqueur. Fruity taste, a bit one-dimensional compared to the promising aroma, sweetish, bit thin mouthfeel, aromatic and spicy, finishing in dryish, grassy hops. Love the aroma, the taste is a whole lot less satisfying.
