nathanvc (884) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2018
At 't Lusthof, Denderwindeke. Pours clear golden with a lasting, small, white head. The aroma contains yeast, malt, apple, spices, hops & herbs. It tastes medium spicy bitter and light fruity sweet; ending dry & hoppy, slightly metallic. Medium body, slick (but bordering on watery) texture, fizzy carbonation. Forgettable.

AtronSeige (1827) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 9, 2017
Aroma: Medium-light sweetness. banana. Light pepper. No hops. Appearance: Clear, golden body. Small, cream colored head. Fair retention. No lacing Flavour: Medium-light spiciness, peppery banana. Light bitterness. Slightly dry finish with lingering banana. Mouthfeel: High carbonation. Meidum body. Light warming. Overall: A fair example of style, but missing complexity. 330 ml bottle, poured. 25A. Belgian Blond Ale

gyllenbock (10132) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2017
On tap at Taphouse. A bit hazy golden with a white head. Mild with fruit, some bread, yeast and light grain. On the sweet side.

Zlotta (4233) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
0.33 l bottle from 'Prik & Tik' (Tongeren), best before August 2018. Slow gusher. Clear, golden amber with a large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy, floral and quite fruity aroma of peach, coriander, vanilla and some clove. Quite sweet, yeasty-spicy, slightly floral and moderately fruity taste of vanilla, peach, coriander, some clove and a touch of banana, followed by a short, moderately bitter, rather yeasty-spicy and slightly grassy finish. Medium body, smooth and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Very decent, has a nice fruity character which matches the apparent yeast aromas pretty well.

Ysok02 (1957) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2017
Robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez sur les épices, le miel, les fruits jaunes. Bouche à l'attaque explosive, le miel domine, la bulle est ronde, la finale douce. Une blonde d'hiver.

Piepenhenrich (1315) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
From bottle. Transfer of an earlier rating without text recorded, rating only.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 appearabce: slightly hazy golden, big fluffy head. Aroma: yeast, breast. Palate: medium mouthfeel, high carbonation. Taste: peppery and spicy on tip of tongue. light banana and yeast flavours follow. slightly sweet mid-tasting. Strong Belgian flavours and light alcohol on aftertaste. Overall I like

berkshirejohn (6812) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A bright amber pour with a billowing loose whiet head and lots of carbonation; yeasty aroma with a trace of banana; sweet grainy body with some barley sugar; and a slightly drier finish. A basic Belgian blond.

madnorwegian (258) - FRANCE - JUN 23, 2017
Absolutely nothing interesting here. Sweet, no bitterness to balance it out. Very underwhelming.

rumore (934) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 23, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours crisp gold, classic, with fine white foam. Aroma is grain and lemony. Body is relatively dense with quote some carbonation. The getting is the one of a full mouth. Taste is markedly sweet with some underlying bitterness. Finish is long and sweet, even too much.
