2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sampled at Amager Bryghus, thanks to Papsø. Heavy gusher with a discreet floral nose. The flavour is meek with some dry flowers, grass, grain and bread. Light/medium body, way too high carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter with light alcohol presence. Not all bad but the carbonation is unpleasant and ruins a lot. I think this could be fairly drinkable if it was possible to drink it. But that’s just what I think.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blonde session beer named after the region in northeast Flanders where the Boelens brewery is located. Estery, pale malts, some cooked cabbage (DMS) too, bit bland and frankly, boring.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Baker’s yeast aroma. Unfiltered yellow colour. Abundant foam. Well balanced. I’m not a big fan of blond beer though I wouldn’t mind drinking this one.
