evannell (846) - Krakw, POLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Nie do końca moja bajka. Trochę mało charakterystyczne jak na belga, w moim mniemaniu. Ładnie czuć drożdże, chmiel na niskim poziomie, ale bardzo przyjemny. Coś jednak sprawia, że nie jest zapamiętywalne.

eManu (541) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2015
From a 33cl bottle pours a light hazy golden straw color body with an off white creamy head the quickly left. Aroma of grain, malts, and yeast. Flavors of malts, vanilla, yeast, herbs, straw and hints of spice. Nice texture with good to strong carbonation, light mellow bitterness, not sweet, and kind of grainy. Typical Belgian light blond ale, very nice and pleasant to drink, good taste, yet nothing very special.

vinivini (1704) - BELARUS - JUL 16, 2015
Golden, one finger tall head, stays as a hill in the middle, nice lacing. The nose is spicy, fruity, airy. Light to medium body. Hoppy taste with citric & fruity notes. Refreshing. The belgian solid grainy body is totally away.

Deep yellow orangey hazy colour with a medium off white head. Aromas of malted wheat, coriander, spices and fruity esters arise. Softly carbonated with a light smooth texture and a medium body. Some wheat sweetness combined with a light fruity bitterness on the back of the palate. relatively short finish.

Lowenbrau (3858) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2015
330ml bottle lots of times in the early belgian years.
In short: average belgian ale.
Pours hazy dark golden with frothy white head. Long head retention, some lacing. Yeasty, citrusy, bready nose. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is little sweet, spicy, citrusy, fruity. Dry and little astrigent aftertaste.
