fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle. Phenolic, and overly so; overly chemical smelling rather than fruity and spicy. Sweet, biscuity/bready malt notes are simple, though pleasant. Too troubled by off notes to warrant drinking it over a wide sample of even boring Belgian blondes.

Prima bier, geen hoogvlieger. Smaak is wat abrikoos, zoet en wat zurigs. Lekker licht biertje voor bij de maaltijd.

Gehbe (309) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 20, 2016
Cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is dominated by yeasty notes, along with a bit of spice, zest and honey as well as some barnyard and vinegar notes. Fairly sour although sweetness still plays the top note, finishes with a light zesty bitterness. High carbonation, light body, slightly milky texture, very drinkable. Refreshing but too yeasty.

Keukeman (104) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2016
33l bottle at a terrace in Den Bosch, hazy blonde colour beer with thin soapy head. Genuine taste, not really special but tastes legit.

Syfher (356) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Very refreshing Abbey Ale. Really good. It’s maybe not the beer with the special taste you are looking for, but it has that "true taste" that will be enjoyed by all.

McSherman (609) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2016
Golden orange, trüb mit schöner weißen Schaumkrone. Malzig, hefig, leicht zitrusfruchtig, etwas trocken und bitter.

blutt59 (6522) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottled, orange marmalade color with tall white foam, aroma is fruity and dry, flavor is papery, berries, thin grain, dry paper finish, old

Maakun (4493) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy light golden with fluffy white head. Sweet grains, paper, soft yeast, lemon, weird metallic bitter notes, light nectarine, dough, sweet biscuits. Medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Decent beer, though the metallic finish is a bit disappointing.

Ysok02 (1214) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2016
Robe blonde, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez qui allie des notes de houblons, de malt et de fruits sur un fond de céréales. Bouche agréable, fruitée, équilibrée, souple, pas très longue mais raffraîchissante. Un bière de soif

0,33l Flasche. Tiefgelbes naturtrübes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Riecht angenehm nach Hefe, schmeckt auch hefig fruchtig!

Maracuja05 (936) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
[backlog] 05-05-16 / bottle in Brussels. Boring. Malty, medium sweet. Carbonated. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 1.75/5
