Bottle pours golden and clear with a great head. Retention is not so good, however. Smells of some caramel and malt. Some fruity tastes, again bready malts and a dry finish with a sharp hopbitterness to it, making the beer very refreshing and invites for another one. Not bad, but not particularly impressive either.

Moretti gran cru: buona birra di stampo belga, sembra una sadica blonde anche se più alcolica e con un amaro più atipico. Ottima beverinità.

Pour from bottle, this dark blonde beer is lively with lots of head. Smell floral and alcohol and taste lightly sweet and bitter. Medium body. The finish is somewhat bitter. While not bad in general, not particularly enjoyable for me somehow.

300ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow colour forming a big and very bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of molasses and lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Strong notes of honey, sweet malts and spices. Quite fruity too. Notes of caramel malts, coriander, candi sugar, grapes and bready Belgian yeasts. Flowery hops. Some notes of bubblegum in the end
T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of honey, caramel malts, sweet pale malts, coriander and sweet bread. Fruity. Notes of grapes, flowery hops and bubblegum. Light bitterness. Hops have grassy and a bit citrus profile. In overall, a slightly sweet taste, Belgian style
M: Medium body. A bit molasses. Good carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Strong Belgian character

Une blonde d’abbaye classique toujours agréable, manque un peu de rondeur et d’attaque (contrairement à une Leffe dans la même catégorie).

Goudgeel bier met mooie schuimkraag, weinig aroma, wat moutig, smaak vind ik ook wat vlak, moutig bitter. Weinig memorabel blond biertje.

Very delicate malt aromas with a little bit of toast and caramel. Body is golden but had falls extremly fast. High carbonisation. Medium bitterness but in general flat taste.

Birra Moretti Grand Cru
Quality belgian ale with lots of spices, yeast, fruits at the nose and on the tongue. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Overcarbonated and overpriced.

On tap at St Veronus. Transparent gold body with a thick creamy white head. Solid lacingMalty sweetness with very slight banana on the nose. Well integrated alcohol and it is exceptionally sessionable. Medium bitterness with very subtle alcohol warmth in the finish.

Bottle at home
Pours clear blonde, good white head .
Smell is Malty, bit fruits ( from the malts ) such as banana , peach .
Bit sweet, and a bitter aspect ,
Taste is bit bitter, lots of banana yeast ( really intense ) , some sugar . Overcarbonated - as to be expected - and pretty common and boring yet again . Perhaps memorable thnx to its intense banana-character that makes it somewhat different , yet feels really simple and perhaps a bit ... Unnatural ...

0.33 l bottle from Viking Line ferry boat (Stockholm-Helsinki). Wild head, comes out of the bottle. Taste has sweetness from alcohol combined with fruits (citrus, a hint of banana). Very nice.
