Cerveza correcta. Esperaba ms de ella. No posee ninguna caracterstica que bajo mi punto de vista resalte demasiado. Un aroma muy suave, acompaado a un sabor y paladar bastante moderados. La apariencia quizs sea su punto fuerte. Un color ambarino con una fina capa de espuma blanca permanente. Cerveza correcta.

RexTalionis (3605) - FINLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden in color with a creamy white head. Very fruity on the nose. Sweet sugary notes too, almost like honey and cantaloupe. Some summer meadow and spices in the background. Light bitterness, more sweeter and fruitier tones after awhile. Nice. Ripe garden fruits and notes of cantaloupe sweetness in the end.

bmeup (651) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
330ml bottle, BB 7.7.17. Served as recommended at 8C. Hazy copper blonde with sediment from last pour, off white head falls to almost flat layer as carbonation is very low. Pleasant and very classy feint aromas of sweet candied lemon scented wild honey, lollies, floral notes and balanced with a real nice spice presence, biscuit malt character suits perfectly. Super silky smooth, dry and leaves just a smidgen of that spice and sweetness as a reminder of how good this beer is, thanks to Masterchef Paul for two of these.

LittleWolf (11) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 12, 2016
Aroma: Initially a little bit of a metallic aroma. As this subsides the beer aroma become more prominent. Surprisingly clean and subtle. Some apricot and white grape aroma. A little bit of soft white bread. Some higher alcohols too, but not unpleasant. All a little subdued and soft, a little boring. Appearance: Beautiful copper coloured beer, with a fluffy, soft, white head with good retention. Taste: Much like the aroma, also a little subdued and boring. I get some of the metallic character and higher alcohol flavour too. Malt flavour is very subtle. The sweet, fruity belgian esters and the alcohol/solventy finish make it taste bigger/stronger than it is. Palate: Medium body. Fairly dry finish. Medium carbonation. Overall: A pretty good beer and Id be happy to just drink a few sitting outside on a warm day. But not the most amazing example I have tasted. A little subdued and boring and there is some solventy/alcohol thing going on that I am not a big fan of.

Faisant parties des bires dabbaye reconnues, les tongerlo taient brasses au sein de labbaye, situe dans la province dAnvers, jusqu la fin de la premire guerre mondiale. (la congrgation date quant elle de 1130!) Depuis 1990, celles-ci sont brasse par Haacht. La Tongerlo Blonde, qui, en verre est plutt dun blond vnitien limpide tirant sur lambre, est surmonte dune mousse blanche trs are. Leffervescence est marque avec une multitude de petites bulles. Le nez est peu dvelopp, se portant essentiellement sur des armes de miel. Lattaque est frache, avec une prsence agrable de crales sur des notes citronnes. La deuxime bouche, laisse sexprimer une amertume de faible intensit, avec des armes trs doux et sucrs de miel. Le final laissera apparatre de petites notes pices. Lensemble est trs plat gustativement, bien que la corpulence et la longueur soient acceptables. Aucune variation, aucune motion ne ressort de cette bire. Les moines ne nous amneront pas vers llvation. Quant savoir comment la Tongerlo Blonde a a dcroch le titre de meilleur bire du monde toutes catgories confondues aux World Beer Awards. Cela reste un mystre!
