Bottled. Clear golden colored, small rapidly disappearing head. Hoppy and spicy nose, typically Belgian strong blond. Spicy and alcoholic flavor, some bitterness. Lasting dry and alcoholic finish. I’m not very impressed, i think i prefer any of the well-known Belgians over this one.

Vaiz (3739) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is somewhat dusty, some cardboard, grainy malts, slightly spicy and a hint of peppery hops. Flavor is slightly sweet, rather bitter and a bit boring. Slightly swampy yeast. Not my favorite.

fkoolen (486) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
Bottle at home. Transparent golden ale, white foamy head. Refreshingly hopped lager, lightly fruity. Good body, medium carbonation.

Sweet beer, well carbonated with hints of fruit and spice and some hop bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Niet echt mijn soort biertje. Vond het iets te hoppig voor blond, but then again, het heet zwaar blond. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gangstergafje (133) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
Nice golden color. Gas bubbles are dancing joyfully in the glass. The average layer of snow white foam disappears to leave a thin drape of soft foam. The smell is very sweet, which is nice. The sensation in the mouth is pleasant, thanks to the bubbles. The taste is bittersweet, with slightly more bitterness than sweetness, to balance the sweetness out. Over all, a nice beer.

Helder goudkleurig bier met witte schuimkruig. Geur van mout en hop en citrus. Smaak van mout, hop, citrus, bitterzoet van smaak met een wat grassige, bittere nasmaak. Lekker, lijkt wat op een tripel.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 30cl flesje bij b.for, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% Uitgeschonken in origineel Brand glas Uiterlijk: goudblond met mooie witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: fruitig als banaan, bittertje, moutig, hoppig Conclusie: lekker nog redelijk nieuw biertje, maar zal wel een blijvertje van Brand zijn

Svesse (6767) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2014
(Bottle, De Paas, Den Haag, 21 Aug 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, tropical fruit and honey. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, honey, grass, sweet malt and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit one-dimensional, mainly with sweet malt and alcohol, but quite enjoyable.
