3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blond session ale with loose, irregular, sticky, somewhat rocky, off-white head and light peach blond colour, cloudy. Strong sweet, ethereal spiciness reminiscent of aniseed, cloves and coriander, pear, melon, pineapple, soap, flowers, cheese, lemon; fruity and spicy onset, dry hoppy finish, a bit unusual and not too well-balanced, the different taste components seem to merge into each other in a somewhat uncontrolled way. Still interesting, though.

Hazy golden color, nice stable and regular white foam. Aroma is quite hidden, some notes of Belgian yeast, dust and bread. Taste is bitter and a bit salty, with some banana notes. Medium body, average carbonation, dry and astringent finish. A decent blond beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.2%
Pours a bright golden yellow beer, with a very tall white head, thick, soapy, with very good retention. Nice formed rings of lacing around the glas.
Aroma of malts, sugar, grass.
Taste of sweet malts, bread, grass. Changes on the aftertaste to a mild bitterness with ikay duration.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Little dryness on the palate.
Overall nothing too exciting, kind of boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem in Antwerp. Thx! No BBF. Pours an almost clear pale golden with a frothy white head. Nose is huge esters, faint green banana, feels pretty raw & unrefined with light alcohol. Taste is lots of esters, green banana, citrus, white pepper, hay, alcohol is largely covered here, some sparkling water & light minerals as well. Body reminds me a bit of sparkling water. Way better than expected, not bad at all.

Ruikt niet bijzonder, gewoon als blond. Smaakt niet bijzonder. Veel koolzuur. Niks bijzonders.
