Clove and coriander. Good looking with a thick white head. dry finish. Wouldn’t mind getting my hands on some a bit closer to the brewery - it might taste of hops.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. An uncomplicated but pleasant spicy belgian blonde. peppery coriander and sweet fruity yeasts on the nose. Not quite as sweet as the smell with a little mild hops. Not bad.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 5, 2008
Tasted 04/03/2008. 330ml bottle fro Rumble’s, Wellington. Pours a hazy amber blonde, with an off white head that laces and throws off some spicy alcohol, green banana and barley sugar. In the mouth it is sweet and spicy, with the esters dominating and cleaning out the finish. Pepper and liquorice finish it out. Fairly highly carbonated. Peppery phenolics hang about. Simple and nice.

Bitter-hoppy, pale-malty, acidic flavor, with lemony-grassy acidity dominating the finish. Light to medium-bodied, acidic palate with medium, slightly fizzy carbonation.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2007
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki) Side by side with the ordinary Affligem blond. Rich orange, lively tight head. Light hoppy aroma. Body is succulent and very strongly but pleasantly hoppy. Clearly hoppy, but in a subtle and inviting way. A touch floral, very pleasant. Even better than the ordinary blond, except for the aroma, which is less complex.
