3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gusher ! Pours unclear blonde, small white head ( expected a gigantic one haha ) Smell is sharp, smells like ... I know this sounds weird, but bricks that were cut. That kind of massive, clay-dust-like scent. Weird ! Taste is sharp, bitter, somewhat sweet ( honey-like ) somewhat spiced almost, like spicy mead. Funky bitter yeastyness. Not very malty, not hoppy. Turns out very strange, even though there are no clear notes of infection or others brewflaw’s I could recognize. Fun to try, even though I don’t think its great.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Stereotypical Belgian medium-strength blonde, in that it openly tries to compete with ’pils’ (as standard golden lagers are called in dutch), as a top-fermented alternative. Since 2008. Sticky, snow white, stable foam, colour a yellow blonde with greenish hue. Bready and very timidly fruity nose, smelling of cheese spread, freshly peeled potatoes, grain, carboard; tastes grainy, dry with only a shy and brief fruitiness, rather thin mouthfeel, a bit marred by a cardboard flavour and in the finish somewhat astringent solvents but little hop bitterness. I sincerely hope this has improved since I first tasted it, because in this shape, I would even prefer a bland Belgian ’pils’ over this unbalanced and even unpleasant ale.

Regular Belgian blond beer. These small breweries always have one, instead of a pilsner.
