Pajiza turbia, un dedo de espuma. Aroma poco marcado. Cuerpo medio carbonatacion baja. Sabor inicial dulce, caramelo y afrutado para evolucionr hacia un final bastante amargo que sube al paladar.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Quite filtered, golden and orange with small white head. Nose : fruity esters and grainy sweet malts. Sip : creamy body and texture. Small carbonation. The beer is sweet and malty with notes of grains and toffee. It’s well balanced and easy to drink. The end is lightly hopped, flower like and a bit sour in the aftertaste. It’s OK.

Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear orange golden color, full sized white head. Not a lot of aroma. Taste malts, a bit yeasty, decently bitter, a slight touch of hops. Not bad at all, certainly a decent Belgian blond beer. Medium body and carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted at the beach in 2005 and apparently this is still around. Typical outdoors café blonde, golden coloured, hazy under a snow white head; malt sweet, yeasty with some estery fruitiness, orange touch, somewhat thin, yeasty finish with grassy hops, dryish. Stereotypical, on the bland side and forgettable but still, quite balanced and quenching.

13/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from Rotsaert (Zedelgem) @ home - BB: 13/II/14 (2013-762)
Clear light orange beer, big creamy white head, stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very sweet and sugary, lots of banana, some alcohol, that’s about it. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet sugary start, almonds and marzipan, orange peel, some citrus, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: pretty dry and bitter, little herbal, sweet banana touch, but quite a bitter ending with some alcohol.
