Luneylane (159) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 25, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium drunk at Dads place while home on leave. Aroma: fruit, gooseberries. Appearance: hazy golden, big head dissipates rapidly. Palate: medium-bodied and sticky, average carbonation, refreshingly astringent at the finish. Taste: sweet and bitter - well balanced. Fruity with a slight flavour of salt. Interesting and good.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - APR 27, 2017
Belgian ale molto buona, un po' speziata al naso, soprattutto miele e scorza di pane al palato. Tendente al dolce, ma comunque abbastanza equilibrata. Soddisfacente! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (8906) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
on tap at le saint-bock, mtl. unclear light but bright gold with a nice creamy white head offering good retention and lacing. lightly honeyed and deeply peppered cereals, white loaf bread with seemingly rustic flour; very grassy noble-like hops, delicately earthy, savoury belgian yeast. moderate carbonation - could be a tad brighter; light body - oily; semi-sweet and still balanced grassy-herbal finish. a very peppery and quite crushable belgian ale.

Mortlach (2330) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 5, 2017
330ml bottle @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Dorata viva, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca media, abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, lieviti, spezie. In bocca equilibrata e semplice, dolce allattacco con finale discretamente amaro. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-leggera. Ok.

tricksta_p (4338) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is pale malt, coriander, spicy yeast, soft fruity notes, mild sugary. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Pretty ordinary Belgian Blond, good yeast in the aroma, sweetish, simple but drinkable.

Zarrach76 (239) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2016
Couleur or surmonte dune mousse trs fine, blanche, avec un collet persistant. Une belle blonde donc. Au nez, un alcool trs lger, des saveurs herbaces, de pain grill, de lait, de lgumes verts (Eh oui !), de bois, dagrumes... Le nez est assez dur dfinir, et il y a un je ne sais quoi de mtallique dsagrable (les houblons utiliss ?) qui pollue les autres saveurs, do une note assez svre. En bouche, lalcool est plus prsent et rvle un bon malt, principalement avec un got de caramel. Les houblons sont discrets mais participent une certaine astringence de lensemble. La bire est moyennement sucre, et on retrouve au got cet arrire got mtallique qui la dnature clairement. Il reste au final un agrable got umami au palet et le malt une fois que les houblons steignent, ce qui relve la note. Globalement, une bire de soif labore mais pas une bonne bire... Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
