Ik heb Vossen met de Meynen geproefd, maar de website schakelt me over naar dit. Het was allesinds een blond biertje met een goede smaak aan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 Elegant thirst-quencher from one of my favorite breweries that has been sold under different names. This rating is based on a 75 cl bottle under its original name Anker Blond; also tasted as Margriet, which is apparently the same beer, but made to celebrate the women that have been in charge of the city of Mechelen throughout history; and as the new Vossen Met De Meynen. Loosely structured, off-white head, colour a warm golden blond with not too obvious clouding (yeast); aroma of apple and pear, coriander, cloves, honey and a hint of cognac; taste fruity with a soft pilsener malt basis, pure, subtle spiciness, smooth and rounded mouthfeel, finish mildly hopped and medium long.

Had it as ’Vossen met den Meynen’. Anyway, it’s an average Belgian blond beer. Yeasty, with some fruits and herbs. Nothing too exciting.
