COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.

A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

A bit darker than most blondes, and some mild spices like a Saison. Overall an upgraded Leffe.

Nice beer for the price. Hazy orange, well carbonated. Some bread notes, light bitterness and an average yeast aroma.

Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Golden beer , slightlynopaque, with a nice bubbly head. Smell is classic Belgian; citric, bready, with a subtle fruity sweetness. Coriander, leather and a hit of caramel and apples. Taste is sweet bitter with a full round body. Lightly metallic, with a warm astringent finish.

kafarion (110) - POLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Aromat słodowy, słodki, jest banan. Kolor jasny pomarańcz, mętny. Piana trwała, całkiem nieźle zdobi szkło. Smak słodowy, bananowy, goryczka niska. Troszkę zbyt mocno wysycone, rozgrzewanie w przełyku od alkoholu, goryczka nie zalega, średnio pijalne. Ogólnie poprawne piwo, nic tu nie urzeka, ale też nic nie odrzuca. Drugi raz nie kupię.

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Pour is loud, pale and cloudy with a big snow white cap that’s here for the long haul. I get no vanilla on the nose but I do get lots of bread and dough, spice and a bit of lemon. Taste is sweet and fruity but surprisingly light for 6.8%. Definitely lots of banana and spice on the finish, but instead of "hoppy aroma" I get a pleasant hint of alcohol warmth, and just enough dryness to make this quaffable. Decent overall, but kind of boring.

Fluxing (374) - POLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Warka 25.03.2016. Kolor metnego zlota. Piana brzydka, bardzo grube pecherzyki, za to opadajac mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie przede wszystkim guma balonowa i przyprawy, jest tez lekka ostra nuta, przywolujaca czesciowo skojarzenia z chmielem, a czesciowo z alkoholem. W smaku dziwne, dosc mocno goryczkowe, ale w nietypowy sposob, ni to lodygowe, ni przyprawowe, ni alkoholowe, majaczy to troche kolo anyzu, ale naprawde trudno powiedziec. Jest tez guma balonowa, owoce, lekkie wino, i wyrazna nuta syropu kandyzowanego. Wysycenie wysokie, ale w blondzie to nawet pasuje. W odczuciu raczej gladkie, cialo polwytrawne.

Nothing special about aroma or taste, an average Belgian Ale. It’s drinkable and kinda pleasant but for the price I find this beer quite anonymous.

Blond beer with a white head, high carbonation. Taste is fruity, yeasty, spice, spicy, citrus and vanilla. Slightly bitter aftertaste disappears quickly.

martjoobolut (959) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 13, 2014
0,3L bottle, BB 29.07.16. Pours clear golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, fruits, citrus, malt, spices. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, spices, coriander. Finish is mild fruity and dry bitter. It feels surprisingly light without being watery. Overall: very nice brew.
