I had a Grimbergen Blonde last week back home in WI, and enjoyed it for a number of reasons, including the fact that it was on-special for $3! The double was not so cheap, but was pleasantly surprising. The beer was served far too cold and in a strange glass choice (a pint glass, which may have come from a fridge) when I tried it at The Bulldog in New Orleans. Still, you could tell it had a bright copper color and abundant head. Due to its 33 degree serving temperature (which while sub-optimal for reviewing, was kind of nice given how hot and humid it was outside), I got very little aroma off of this beer. Flavor was quite nice though; with a substantial malty backbone (substantial without being cereal-y) complemented by a lot of fruit notes that were cherry and raisin-like. Mouthfeel was unremarkable, but what Id expect from the style. Pretty good. Id recommend. I had this on-draft at The Bulldog in New Orleans.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Bottle - Pours a reddish brown with a big tan head that quickly departs. Sour cherry/cough syrup aroma that is not very appealing. Sugary, cherry, toffee flavor. Had better.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2008
On tap in Barcelona @ cafe Kasparo. Cola colored reddish dark pour with pretty good head and lacing. Sweet fruits on the nose, candi sugar, some ester profile. Flavor is fruity sweetness with a touch of roastyness. Light to medium body with clean finish. A nice surprise amongst the predominant lagers.

Bottled. Actulaly not as bad for a semi-mass market belgian. Pours dark and with some sugary molasses tones, moderate head. drinkable.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Bottle. Aroma is very lager-like, it feels like some dark lager with just a light fruitiness and some roasted malt. Flavour is pretty much the same. It feels thin and boring in the mouth. Maybe Ive got a bad bottle?

Fuck. Im not even sure why I even bothered to crack this guy open. Im tired and it poured pretty lackluster. Yeah, whatever head was there stuck around for the 30 minutes or so before I started to drink it, but it still could not overcome the sickly sweet syrupy liquid that lives underneath the silky foam. Meh, nother candy double.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 This is a phenomenal beer. Very little hop flavor, so beer purists may not view this as a "top notch" beer, but in my book it is amazing. Pours a fairly small head. Very yeasty and a bit sweet. No alchohol burn here. Great on tap or in bottle.
