Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a golden sparkling beer with a good rocky white head. Smells sweet and a bit metalic. Tastes also sweet. Average carbo, thin body and watery texture. Booooooooring

Birra dorata dalle sfumature ambrate, buona schiuma persistente. Gusto tipico belga con note fruttate ben definite, carbonazione non invadente. Consigliata.

Padchenko (383) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 4, 2017
Pours golden yellow with decent white head. Malty strong blonde, quite sweet - brown sugar and possibly some banana. Very tasty

NicoBirras (5) - - OCT 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Excelente cerveza de abadía, sabor belga particular y refrescante. Suave pese a su porcentaje de alcohol (6%), de notas cítricas, lupolosas y trigo. Muy completa y especial para cualquier tipo de ocasión. 8.5/10 a mi parecer.

Camons (13325) - Hasselager, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2017

Jabic (702) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Ar: Light malt and a touch of nougat; black pepper, lemon peel, and apricot. Ap: Coper-gold and clear; medium-small very-light tan head with low retention, settling into a thin but solid film of foam accompanied by some low clinging peaks on the glass sides. T: Peach, clove, and black pepper up front; a touch of anise and grains of paradise; orange peel; nearly no sweetness; chalk and a medium bitterness; hop flavor is herbs and peppery moss; clean alcohol heat with a bit of rosiness; finish is bitters and lemon peel. P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A pleasant and flavorful, yet very quaffable, Belgian blonde ale; nuanced fruit and spice flavors; perfect mouthfeel--substantial yet easy-drinking.

3.2
maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle from Liquor Mountain. Light pale malt nose, Belgian yeast, esters, bread, and a touch of citrus. Hazy light orange/gold color with a fluffy off-white head. Sweet and malty, some honey or maybe candi sugar, thin bit of citrus, very light banana, spice, yeast, and mild bitter finish. Medium body. Not really a blonde ale. Okay.

2.8
bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2017
(backlog BL sampler 2017, 33cl) - Bref: there's a typical Duvel-Moortgat, almost tightlipped puritan dryness to this macro Belgian Ale, fusing a controlled yeast and hop bitterness that probably works more effectively in an industrial pale lager than a honeymalt ale. - - Aroma of sulphurous yellow apple peels and hayish grains, underbaked apple pie coated with honey, dusted with white pepper. Oddly curtailed flavours of semi-esters (some green banana, some apple & pear) on wet gras wet plywood. Liquid tastier sawdust, with a bitter yeasty twist. Might revisit on tap. - - There is a host of Best Of Belgian aromas in this "sessioner" , most of them curtailed and failing to ignite on the metallic palate. Frère Atout, the stainless candisugar brigade has been interfering with your "ancient recipe".

4.1
Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
A Blonde the way I like it. Golden color, rich head,rich taste, mainly around grainy and yeasty flavors, but accompanied by some light fruity notes and a gentle bitterness. Give me more of that.
