DruncanVeasey (8056) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, - MAY 22, 2013
330ml from Arden Wines. Bright gold slicked with white. Big juicy wine gum nose with suggestions of orange, pear, pineapple and green herb. Bright and perfumed with orange rind and sappy hop giving way to pale biscuity malt and peppery booze. A little harsh and soapy on the finish at first but mellows with each sip. Decent.

jamaty (1987) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 30, 2016
Dorada turbia, espuma poco duradera. Aroma acaramelado, notas florales. En boca muy agradable, ricamente malteada. Base dulce, pero equilibrada, floral y levadura belga. Gas punzante, picante, y paso facil.

Wolfbass (1119) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 1, 2016
Quando la apri, senti proprio tutto il Belgio che ti invade il naso, tutte le peculiarità, tipiche del paese di manneken pis, e secondo me è anche una bella bevuta.

Bijl (319) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
Amber geel, heel licht crèmekleurige schuimkraag die snel inzakt, troebel. Aroma: Karamel, moutig, licht fruitig/ Sinaasappelschil , kruidig en wat grassig, hop. Smaak: Zoete karamel mouten, brood, bittere prikkelige hops, bloemig/ floraal, aardig kruidige en tussendoor ook een fruitige appel hint. Goeie netelige bitter en Belgische gist. Body is medium tot vol, mondgevoel is actief door de koolzuur en Spicey hops, afdronk is bitter droog.... Ik vind het een heerlijke blond....gewoon goed!

bonkiedeaap (655) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a nice and large white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of citrus, apples, caramel and bitterness of yeast and spices. The taste is light sweet with malts, fruits and caramel, and changes into robust hoppiness, with some notes of spices, flowers and yeast. The finish is light dry, refreshing and bitter.

Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:

This beer is rather intense, but lacks both complexity and character. It is sweet and simple, but still delicious to drink.
