2014/04/18 - Pours a hazy orange-honey colour with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is Belgian yeast, toffee, fruit and spices. Taste is much of the same; strong Belgian yeast, sweet toffee malt, fruity notes and spices. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is thin with lively, biting carbonation and a mildly bitter/tart finish. An ok blonde. Probably won't repeat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABT_S54 (149) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a blond colour with a whitish head. Reasonably carbonated but terribly disappointing. I was expecting great things from the brewery that produce Gulden Draak and Piraat but this is the worst Belgian blond I have tried. Bland taste, thin mouthfeel and a dryish aftertaste without the body or sweetness to complement it. Disappointing.

The aroma is sweet malt, with hints of spices and herbs. The appearance is clear golden, almost amber though; the white head stays long. Medium sweetness from the malt, bitter in the finish. Very lively carbonation, long finish. Creamy texture is notable.

Aroma of malts, yeast, fruits, some spices. Flavour is very yeasty, some fruity sweetness. Lively carbonation. Very nice and drinkable Blonde.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with some bitter tones. Citrus, tangerine, grass, herbs and some spices. A nice Belgian brew.

Stuedmaster (216) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 30, 2014
750 ml bottle. The cork nearly jumped out of the bottle after removing the cage. Alcohol is 8.0% abv on the bottle. Nice aroma of sweet malt, alcohol, fruity, spicy, and earthy. Golden pour with a thick white head and lacing. I really like the flavor, it is medium sweet, medium sour, and spicy with a light bitterness, well balanced. Has the funky Belgian yeast aroma and flavor but not overpowering. Very smooth and refreshing, would repeat.

Drank it on the new years drink in Ertvelde, where the beer is brewed. Nice golden and hazy body with a thick white head. A little fuity in the aftertaste. Dominance of the yeast and hop.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours a not-quite-clear gold with a this, fluffy white head. Smells of apples and citrus fruits. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet apple flavor from the yeast and a cloying sweetness from the malt. A pretty good, basic blonde.
