harrisoni (19336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Now this I like. Gold, thin white head. Grassy hop aorma. It’s a hoppy blond, good hops, bit empty on the malts maybe, but the finish is pretty good. After half a dozen syrupy blonds, this is a bit of a treat. Very dirnkable and I’ll buy this again. TBone (18225) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2008

Slightly hazy orange color, good off-white head. Mildly fruity and yeasty nose with woody hops. Medium bodied (on fuller side). Quite yeasty flavor. Dry and fruity - spicey and hoppy finish. Spiceyness and light alcohol in the aftertaste. Well-made standard Belgian blonde, but not very complex or interesting.
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Side by side with the ordinary Affligem blond. Rich orange, lively tight head. Light hoppy aroma. Body is succulent and very strongly but pleasantly hoppy. Clearly hoppy, but in a subtle and inviting way. A touch floral, very pleasant. Even better than the ordinary blond, except for the aroma, which is less complex.

Sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. Clear golden color, full sized soapy white head. Aroma is horrible: cardboard, musty, horse blanket. Yuk. Taste carboard and musty as well. Don’t like it at all. Sucks. Dedollewaitor (16387) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2008
33cl bottle at D.H. Pours unclear copper with a lsting white foam and lacings. Nose is hoppy and spicy. Coriander and clove. Crisp and hoppy for a Belgium. Good.

Light body and moderate carbonation. bierkoning (13687) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 Tap, Café De Engel Oldenzaal. Served too cold, so it’s hard to detect any aroma. But the flavor is hoppy and creamy, with just a bit of malty sweetness and pepper. Simple, but nice and well balanced. Hoppy aftertaste with a hint of peach.
Bottle: Hoppy, oily, just a bit flowery aroma and flavor. Citric, hoppy, oily aftertaste. Absolutely lovely beer! Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2003
cloudy orange colour, giant head with a beautiful lace, yeasty with honeyish notes, lot of carbonation, robust bitterness, long bitter orange finish - some analogies with Orval but there is something undefinable missing bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2007
(Bottle, BB 16/10/08) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, florals, grass, buttery, and dustiness. Flavor of spicy yeast, pear, malt, and hops with a dry finish.
