Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Draft at De Halve Maan after the brewery tour. Pours a cloudy, dark, orange amber hue with a frothy, off-white head of foam.
A wet, soapy wash mostly rejoins the body, though a few scant spots remain behind on the glass. The aroma is based in blonde candy sugar, showing hints of banana, and is spiced with coriander, orange peel, and soft floral hops. Flavors are largely the same, again sweet up front with blonde candy, yet balanced decently on the back end with spicy coriander and dried wildflowers. Mediuml bodied, with lively carbonation, the palate is easy going, finishing clean. Solid spicy blond, but nothing special. Travlr (25269) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2009

Flavors of yeast is very present, with fruity and spicy notes, and with a sweet and bitter finish. Dry and with a not of a smoky flavor last in mouth. Did not particularly enjoyed this beer.
Pours a clear golden colorwith some yeast floating around and with a medium size white head. Aroma od malts, hops and some honey and spices. Flavors of malts and yeast, some hints of honey, some lemon and spices. Good carbonation, some sweetness but mostly bitter and dry finish. There is a small metalic feel to it though.

Draught é L’Estaminet, Brugge. Beautiful blonde ale with thick, white, lacing and durable head. Grainy aroma, with some spicy notes. Taste is also grainy and spicy, with a fruity, honey note on it and yeasty. It finishes light hoppy and bitter, with a full mouthfeel. Refreshing and dry beer. A good one to drink, but lacks a bit in overall taste to be a real top beer.

300ml glass. White head and pale yellow foggy colour. Great bitter classic belgian ale taste but lacks the extra thing that would boost up its rating. I haven’t been impressed but enjoyed it though. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2009

Julio’s Belgian Beer Festival. Sample. By the time I got to this one I was seeing double. Rating it to keep track but don’t have any particulars. My notes say "good". DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
33 cl. bottle. Clear gold, lots of effervescence produces a large, durable whtie head ad a thick lace. Fresh grainy aroma, light fruits add to the mix, and hints of spice become slowly apparent. Clean and dry, light body, and as noted, brightly effervescent. Light honey sweetness with the delicate balance of peppery hops is quite refreshing. Very drinkable, not an assertive beer, but it’s subtlety is intriguing.
