Blade86 (1305) - Wroc³aw, POLAND - NOV 30, 2016
malty and fruity aroma with alcohol; amber, hazy, small off-white foam; light bitterness, medium+ sweetness, slightly sour; medium body, alcoholic feel, quite sticky and little bit oily; not very nice aroma, quite ok taste, rather tiring but very interesting and with surprisingly pleasant percentage

piwnepodroze (477) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Vleteren blond był od samego początku zagadką, bo przecież żaden blonde nie może mieć 12% alkoholu i niewielu przedstawicieli leżakuje w dębowych beczkach. Jasne piwo z małego belgijskiego browaru Deca (kilka kilometrów od De Strusie i Westvletterena) jest jednak klasycznym belgijskim mocarzem. W zapachu dominują nuty kwiatowe, miodowe i owocowe (pomarańcze, brzoskwinie, morele). Piwo jest mocne i to czuć w lekkim drapaniu w gardło, a sam alkohol delikatnie pałęta się po języku. Piwo jest pełne i słodowe, jednak wyraźne winne posmaki sprawiają, że nie przymula, a wręcz przeciwnie, może być doskonałym zamiennikiem wieczornej lampki wina. Dla miłośników potężnych belgów.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
- trübes bernsteingelb mit leichter, cremiger Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Honig, Karamell, etwas Dörrobst und Bourbon, aber vor allem sehr intensiv nach Alkohol - für diesen Biertyp eine perfekte Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist samtweich und dadurch verbunden mit einem herrlichen Mundgefühl - die Süße bildet einen fantastischen Gegenpol zur holzigen Fassnote - beim Trinken schmeckt man den Alkohol kaum, obwohl er immer wieder etwas unangenehm in der Nase kitzelt - das Ganze erinnert bis zum Abgang mehr an einen süßen Sherry denn an ein Bier Fazit: Leider springt einem der Alkohol etwas zu sehr in die Nase, ansonsten wäre es ein perfektes fassgelagertes Bier mit einem sensationellen Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

Hopverdju (828) - BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2016
Amberkleurig met wit schuim. Geur: iets zurig, vineus, hout, alcoholisch, karamel. Smaak: zeer zoet, likeur, alcoholisch, rijp fruit, peer. Volmondig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: zoet. Man, man, als dit geen gerstewijn is! Abbey Tripel? Hoe komt men op het idee? Voor dergelijk bier zouden ze nog de term "likeurbier" moeten toevoegen.
