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.

Bottle: Complex structure, with mixes of fresh pineapple, malts, dough and soft bitterness but with a finish that is a bit flat; a "Belgian Burgundy".

beersammich (61) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Pours hazy yellow, mild metallic and malt smell. Taste is pretty spot on for a blonde. Small fruit and spice finish. Over all a pretty decent beer. I had this from a bottle.

Colour is between yellow and amber, with a foamy white head. Fruit and herbs are dominant in the aroma, while in the taste these are combined with notions of malt and unripe banana. Nice bittersweet aftertaste, but if you drink it too cold, the aftertaste is ruined.

macio_men (57) - POLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Intensywny aromat, mocno chmielowy. Piana bardzo gęsta, opada po pewnym czasie, utrzymuje się w postaci kożuszka. Kolor złoty, mętne. Przyjemnie alkoholowe. Mocno musujące. W smaku- bogaty bukiet. Goryczka wyrazista, kolejne smaki uwalniają się sekunda po sekundzie, słodycz, kwaskowatość, też coś jakby chleb, albo palona kawa (!). Innymi słowy magia. Niesamowite piwo.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Need to retaste that one again.

blackradioboy (25) - SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2015
300ml bottle from Asda. Imported by Heineken, Edinburgh. Blondes aren't usually my favourite beers, but this is one of the better examples I've sampled. Slightly cloudy amber, sweet, not too much in the way of body, but a pleasant enough beer...and £3.50 for a 3- pack! Good value. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lello4ever (102) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Molto buona come ale belga, č molto frizzante e dalla schiuma generosa, colore ambra. Appena speziata, non ha un sapore di malto eccessivo, risultando piuttosto equilibrata. E’ un’ottima scelta per una birra da pasto piů forte.

seritomi (325) - HUNGARY - FEB 13, 2015
Sötétsárga, a habja sok és fehér. Szép. Illata fanyar, száraz, élesztős nem annyira arcba ugrósan apátsági bár a címke azt írja. Kukorica, méz, ázott kenyér. kevés komlóval. Íze egyáltalán nem zavaróan édes, közepesen testes de alkoholos. a komló ízében már erősebb. Nekem olyan mit ha átcsengés lenne a Heineken élesztője és/vagy komlója között. Tehát gyanús a lé! Azért jobb mint az átlag.

Całkiem niezły belg. Aromat co prawda słaby, ale reszta trzyma poziom. Fajnie trafić coś takiego w Tesco.
