NedGeorgy (41) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2018 Enjoyed at Westvleteren. Aroma subtle and slightly sour smell. Head is white and does settle into spotty head that lasts until the drink is done. Flavour is very well balanced, nice bready malts finishing with a refreshing but quite restrained bitter touch.

DraftPours23 (906) - FRANCE - SEP 3, 2018
Robe blond clair aux subtiles nuances orangées, assez trouble, presque laiteux avec beaucoup de fine levure en suspension. Belle mousse épaisse, semblable à des blancs en neige pas trop fermes, tenaces. Nez marqué sur la levure, avec un fruité assez rond. En bouche, l'attaque est ronde, avec du malt léger et de la levure, mais dans la longueur une belle amertume éclot, et prend le pas sur le reste, sans être pour autant extrême, et tend à s'atténuer au fil de la dégustation. Le corps est légèrement fruité et fleuri, très agréable et subtil.

PowY (1780) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 8, 2018
330 ml bottle at Werckmeisters place, shared by Jessy, many thanks! Pours a hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty, spicy and lightly malty - hints of banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, peppery, honey, toffee, dried fruits, raisins. Medium body with a soft to average carbonation, a light sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. The flavor is medium malty - biscuit, honey, some caramel, dried fruits, some pear, spices, cinnamon. Finishes with a herbal, hoppy bitterness.

sread37 (5) - - JUL 22, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2018 Amazing fresh Belgian aroma. Pours slightly hazy with a thick white head. Quite bitter with yeasty spicy notes. Drinkable but with loads going on flavour wise. Definitely one of the best Belgian blonds I’ve had.

MrOrla (4464) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2018
Botlle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of spicey yeast, slight grassy, peach, and faint bubblegum alike yeast, slight grains and hay - a bit bready. Taste is medium bitter with a moderate sweet touch of malts, loads of yeast - spicey and baguette alike malts, slight grassy hops - a bit herbal, light dry finish. Good stuff.

bierwolf78 (467) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2018
Uiterlijk: Helderblond bier met een krijtwitte schuimkraag. Geur: Kruidig, hop, gist, hooi, bloemig. Smaak: Hop, gist, citrus, droogbitter. Mond: zacht hoppig, olieachtig, eindigt aangenaam droog. Ik zal hoogstwaarschijnlijk (en dat is dan maar zo) heel wat heilige huisjes omver schoppen door dit te vermelden, maar dit is voor mij de beste van de 3 soorten die de bijna onbereikbare monniken brouwen, ik heb nog nooit zo lang gedaan over een glas blond bier, positief gezien hè. Een regelrechte topper in zijn soort.
