GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 3, 2011
Pours, in an oversized glass, foggy yellowish amber color headed with dense white foam. Smelling is not much spicy neither dark fruits as Belgian Strong used to be,nevertheless gentle aromas are present. Entering is bitter becoming sweeter in your mouth. Alcohol is really present while then & on the aftertaste too. Well balanced in all senses. Drinkability is ok, suprising thick body for a blond one. A real Blond barley Wine.

psilosophy (740) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur un peu orange et lgrement trouble ( levures); mousse assez gnreuse, un peu crmeuse et de tenue correcte. Elle ma un peu rappelle la Hoegaarden Grand cru, de part son ct pic et lgrement fruit, mais reste un peu plus "corse" et propose un trait "vgtal" qui la rend un peu plus amre. Lalcool (10%) est par ailleur bien masqu, on le sent juste ce quil faut. Au final, une Ale forte qui tient la route. Trouve Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle from Beer Mania. Light amber body with rocky head. Nose of sweet malts and caramel. Taste quite malty as well. Hides the high ABV remarkable well, until the malt liquor finish. Never had a blonde like this before. Bitter and grassy in the finish.

DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010
Foggy yellow body with little carbonation, decent white head. Aroma of hops and coriander, grain notes. Taste is strong bread with syrup notes, quite heavy but not overpowering. Strikes a decent balance between a decent Belgian blonde and a super strong ale.

Bevuta allIrish pub di Quinto (GE) dal bicchiere di Gian. Profumo intenso e carico, colore leggermente ambrato, forti toni di liquirizia caratterizzano questa birra. Non male, un p troppo alcolica
