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.

330 ml bottle. Unfortunately I can not get a fair read on the aroma as this bottle has been over exposed to light. Although I must say the head is quite impressive with good endurance. The head on this is as thick as a Guinness yet this is on a blond. A six pack of these would run you 30 bucks. Top shelf stuff here. This blond’s complexion is like gold with minuscule sediment sleeping in it, (you can tell it is not fake gold). A fair amount of carbonation at work here . A well rounded balance on mouthful. Partially earthy yet clean with just the right amount of spice.

Bottle from Mogwai Bar&Mat. Aroma of malts and apricots. Pours golden with a medium white head. Taste is sweet and fresh of malts and fruits. Palate is very easy and drinkable. A nice surprise. Tasteful and very pleasant.

Pours a light gold with a fluffy white head, mild spicy aromatics with a strong noble hop aroma. Grainy sweet malty flavor with some flowery noble hop flavor. Light body medium carbonation.

Boxereddy (68) - BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2014
Blond bier met een gemiddelde schuimkraag. Geurige neus, discrete smaak met fruitige toetsen. Zwakke afdronk. Een klassieker maar geen topper.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una buona ale belga. Sembra quasi una strong. Sapori fruttati ed erbacei si mischiano a quelli speziati, di colore dorato vivo, con schiuma persistente e fine, corpo ben strutturato in cui si sentono i malti e i lieviti, non risulta molto amara. Buona persistenza e gradevolezza
