33 cl bottle served in Leffe chalice. Pours hazy dark amber, almost hazelnut, with an incredibly rocky all-lacing tan head. Aroma is wild honey, pineapple, peach, red berries and milk chocolate. Taste is refreshing, slightly sour, with greater bitterness than Belgian ales usually display. Texture is soft-carb, round, long-lingering. Quite a nice one.

kraddel (6858) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2016
Not sure if the beer is retired, but I only found it vintage. Should be re-rated if I ever find it fresh. Unknown vintage as the cap is to rusted to read. Mild gusher. Pours unclear blonde to amber, good white head. Smell is super-intense yeast and madeira, 2 aspects I never really had this simultaniously dominant. Taste is very yeasty, some madeira, metallic notes on top. Over the top, for sure, and perhaps would be better if even older, due to unplesant aspects fading out. The metallicness in this one is just too much.

Bottle sampled. No indication of size or BBF. Sparkling fizzy clear golden, fizzing away golden head. Nose is heavily soapy, industrial, fizzy, banana, chemicals, heavy esters,… industrial ester heavy soap. Taste is industrial soap, chemical, washing powder, heavily chemical, esters, industrial, mineral,… Heavily chemical, touch soapy body. Far too industrial tasting Belgian Blond, tastes & feels processed to death. Too bad, I have had two other beers by this brewery & they were acceptable.

An okay sort of belgian dubbel ale. Thin in maltiness relative to its Belgian spice.

josanguapo (1309) - SPAIN - JUL 17, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2016 From Alcampo. In La Trappe Chalice. Playing Blackwell Epiphany. Geyser when openened but taste and aroma are fine. A bit dull at first but with some sugaryness that makes it more interesting, so much that I even enjoyed it in the end.

Een goed biertje voor als je geen donker bier lust, zit tussen de 2 smaken (blond en donker) wat in. Wel geen echt sterke smaak.

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2016 Tasted in the original "Abbaye d’Aulne Ambrée sur lie" version, but it’s the same beer. Off-white, initally thick but irregular and quickly diminishing head, colour a darkish amber, tending to copper, misty. Aroma primarily malty, in a caramel- and nutty kind of way, accompanied by hints of yeast, wood, apple, grapefruit and cloves; taste subduedly, dryishly fruity on a nutty maltiness, strong carbonisation in the beginning, a bit grainy in the finish, with herbal hop bitterishness. Perhaps somewhat reminiscent of a german Alt?

Benzai (14656) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Hazy amber color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweet . Don’t get anything else really, except for it being totally overcarbonated. Average body, fizzy high carbonation. Don’t really like it.
