Tasted as Oxfam Blond Bier, in which form it is sold throught the Oxfam stores, centered around fair trade. Made with Bolivian quinoa, Costarican cane sugar and Indian Basmati rice. Warm golden blonde colour, snow white, not too stable head; grainy and malt sweetish nose, lemon peel, rice noticeable; grainy taste, a bit caramelly, some strange sourishness (perhaps the quinoa?), sourish finish with light bitterness. Unbalanced, like most of Huyghe’s beers.

Niet echt mijn ding, ik vond er niet veel smaak aan. Dan zijn er veel en veel betere.

Vacation 2013 @ Virton, Belgium. 33 cl. bottle @ the bungalow, bought @ the local farmers market.

Clear amber with a thin white head. Sweetish aroma. Typical yeasty taste with a lot of sweetness to it.

33CL bottle at home, clear golden beer with a small white head, hmm not that great of a beer, its drinkable but has a bit too much carbonation in my opinion.

Bottle Oxfam blond, best before june 2010, found it in a dark place. Aged well. Amber colour, low carbonation. Sweet aroma of candysugar, bitter aftertaste. Notes of honey. Not bad.

Benzai (8227) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Clear orange color, small off-white head. Smell malts and lightly some fruits. Taste malts, some unripe fruits and a sour hint. A bit dry in the finish, medium carbonation, medium body though it doesn’t really taste like a 7.5% ABV beer to me. It does make me burp a lot. A bit disappointing, even though my expectations weren’t that high from the beginning.

Light copper coloured beer with a white head. Aroma and taste is quite fruity, some malt and some citrus. Quite a dry ending.
