3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a beer fair in Girona. It pours a cloudy golden liquid, with medium-high white-beige head. The aroma is hoppy, with hints of fine roasted malt, spices, citron and yeast. Average taste: malty, some hops and citron, with lively carbonation, a little sweetness mixed with acidness, and a bitter finish. It feels a little watery. Decent beer, lacking some character in my opinion.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very clear light hay-coloured beer with a weak head. Smells very hoppy with hints of (brown) bread and lightly citric.
Hoppy taste with breadiness and dry finish. Bit like a malt beer. Rather pils like. Nice beer for a pils but a bit disappointing for a blond. Reminds me of Palm.

Bottle (330ml). Cloudy yellow body with a good sized creamy white head that persists. Aroma is golden malts with a yeasty presence.

A decent Belgian blond ale without being especially noticeable.
