11.2 oz bottle. Gushed like a beast! Managed to get my thumb on top and spray at the window until it settled down. Still got about 8 ounces. Hazy golden brown with splotchy lace from the settling foam. Nose is sweaty pits, toffee, grass and light citrus. Oily medium body with fizzy carb. Taste is honey, grass and yeast finishing with bitter orange peel. Almost 2 years old so maybe not at its best but always a crazy experience from De Dolle.

, Tampere, Finland. Strong, balanced nuances with slightly sour malts and fruits. Some caramel and yeast. Wide taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with hoppy bit yeasty malts. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, high quality and schoolbook like Belgian Strong Ale though bit dull product. Could have more earthy nuances. Too much carbonation. 8 3 7 2 15
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie blonde belg: bitter, moutig, citrusje. Vrij standaard, maar wel lekker! nathanvc (921) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2018

Pours hazy yellow with a lasting, frothy, white head that leaves lacing. Subtle but complex aroma of apple, citrus, grass, bread & yeast, bitter hops, pineapple, white grapes, some banana. It tastes medium to heavy hoppy bitter with light citric sour tones; dry, hoppy, grassy finish with some warming 'jenever' alcohol. Full body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Hops galore in this Belgian classic.
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Tamnija žuta boja sa bogatom pjenom. Treba paziti kod natakanja . Klasična solidna 'Blond' aroma , Sladno-voćna. Okus je voćno-gorkast. Slad , kvasac , pa gorke breskve. Ta gorčina je izražajna ali paše uz taj voćkasti okus. Dakle to je jedan malo 'gorči' Blond. Gaziranost je malo izražajnija i pasalo bi mi da je malko blaža ali nije tolika da iritira. OK pivo , tako nešto sam i očekivao prema onome šta sam pročitao o njemu. allmyvinyl (11396) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold with a massive white head. Aromas of hay, grassy hops, light malt and Belgian yeast. Taste is dry, grassy bitter. Carbonation a bit high.

Bottle. Pours golden brown with a small, foamy white head. Aroma is caramel malts, light floral hops. Medium bodied, smooth, creamy texture. Easy drinkability. Light bitterness on the finish. Soft carbonation pitch992 (254) - SLOVENIA - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle from Pivoljub. Stood in the fridge for few days, upright, quite a gusher. Massive head that refused to go down even with the slowest possible pour.
Clean hop notes, some citrus and fruits, alcohol, caramel. Alcohol isn't overbearing, bitterness is low to medium. Drinkability is good. hrabren (2047) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 0.33 l bottle brought by Bazz. Big tasting #2. Murky golden, frothy off-white head. Cardboard, raw meat, spices, malts. Light spicy, dry. Much cleaner than aroma. Light body, light finish. samjdix (77) - - DEC 26, 2017
Don't get this. So unpleasantly fizzy that all I got is a thin and overwhelmingly bitter taste. Astringent aroma of apples. Tiny bits of caramel as I work through but wouldn't have again. carlom (128) - ITALY - DEC 17, 2017
Colore arancio, schiuma compatta pannosa e persistente. Aromi floreali e speziati. Al palato miele, canditi, note pepate con finale delicatamente lupolato. Una birra molto equilibrata con una bevuta molto facile nonostante il grado alcolico.
