I tasted this beer at Tenancingo Tlaxcala, Mxico. This could have affected the flavors and aroma of the beer. Needs more presence of the hops, its just too sweet and no hops are present.

R4N5H (1111) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2017
33cl bottle from Jumbo Supermarket (Amsterdam) and poured into a tegu glass on 19-May-2017. Clear pale amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of bread, Belgian yeast and malt. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of sweet malt, spices and yeast. Close in character to a tripel, but but gets more hop prominent as the beer warms. Light to medium bitterness with a sweetish finish.

Bouteille 33cl, Lille. Couleur blond-cuivr, la bulle est lourde, paisse, et en suspens ; mousse abonnante. Au nez, on peroit fort bien les houblons, avec des notes herbaces, florales, mais aussi la pomme, et le raisin tirant sur le cognac. En bouche, une belle amertume : cest ultra-houblonn. La scheresse herbace du houblon est bien compense par quelques notes de miel et de caramel. Elle est onctueuse, mais elle manque quelque peu de longueur en bouche malgr son amertume. Pour rsumer, une bire ultra-houblonne et bien sche, assez complexe mais qui gagnerait se prolonger sur le palais. Jen reprendrais sans hsiter.

Franckg (1575) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Bouteille avec une date qui semble me dire quil me reste peine 3 semaines pour boire cette bire. Robe orange trouble surmonte dun gigantesque col de mousse blanc et laiteux qui seffondre en laissant une forte dentelle. Armes de levures belges, citron, houblons trs herbacs en perte de vitesse, miel, agrumes oublis temprature ambiante, mtal. En bouche, beaucoup de levures et de sucre rsiduel, quelques agrumes mlangs des raisins verts et poire, zeste de citron, malt lgrement caramlis. Saveurs qui tournent rapidement vers quelque chose de plus amer et sec avec un peu de poivre et herbes sches. Finale plutt cre de malt en perdition. Texture semi-onctueuse et corps moyen.

nathanvc (391) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2017
Pours hazy yellow with a frothy, lasting, white head. The aroma contains hops, grass, herbs, earth, yeast and some fruit. It tastes light sweet and only medium bitter with a long duration. Lively carbonation, medium body, slick texture. Not as bitter or complex as an IPA. A strange brew, I think. Really lacking the features it promises to have.

Decent, classic Belgian blonde with a solid hoppy twist. Medium carbonation.

Marduk (7476) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Huge size, thick and frothy head, stays. Perfume, sweet malts, sweetish, bit minerals and slightly metallic notes in aroma. Alcohol, sausage?, malty, chalk, cookies and bit of yeast in taste. Chalky and sweet sweet malts in aftertaste. Crisp bubbly carbonation. Drinkable brew.

czar (8895) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
pours hazy bright golden with a very nice eggshell white head offering good retention and lacing. golden grapey maltiness, spent apricots, borderline rotten, fruity and spicy belgian yeast action, fairly bitter herbs, treacle, good slice of butter, disturbingly bitter earthy and dirty hops. bright carbonation, light to medium body, warming and almost hot spicy finish. weak high gravity blonde belgian ale with an awkward bitterness - not remotely close to a fun belgian ipa.

mathieuc (3905) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
Gusher warning: This opened up with a rather big and completely unexpected gusher. Pour is clear golden with a high rocky white head that leaves intense lacing. Nose is of candi sugar and no hops. Some peppery alcohol and something I normally associate with oxidation. Taste is moderately sweet and again not too hoppy... Barely bitter, too. Some brown sugar, brown malt and more candi sugar. Pretty meh. Alcohol is pretty well hidden (not hot) but it still dries the mouth quite a bit. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel is thus a bit fluffy. A little sticky on the lips. Meh... just a weak tripel and certainly not an hoppy beer...
