pivo (2561) - - OCT 31, 2009
Very pale straw color but a little hazy. Creamy lathery head. Soft round and very light malt body cuts out quickly to give way to some yeasty notes. Some vanilla too, followed by a light peppery touch. Recalls a good Belgian blond in its posture but thinner and more direct. All flavors are muted by well harmonized. Nice beer on a warm night in Barcelona.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 18, 2013
Blond, somewhat hazy, small head. Belgian yeast, simple character, sweetness from pale malts. Very standard, but not clean, so not so refreshing. Mild taste profile, it’s okay. Bit boring though. (33cl bottle, gift by Darren and Flavia from and drank in Ax les Termes)

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
33cl. bottle (Cap d’Ona Rossa) from a local beer retailer. It pours a hazy light golden liquid with a medium bubbly white head that somehow lasts throughout the beer and leaves no lacing. The aroma is both hoppy and malty, evolving to almost just malty. At first there are some herbal and floral hints along with a general grainy maltiness and a caramelly touch. When it is mostly malty, a little citron and straw do appear. It tastes kind of likewise, with an intenser taste of citron and straw. It is medium sweet, lowly bitter and it has a slight acidic touch. In the mouth it feels medium-full bodied, thick, with mild and lively carbonation. It ends very dry and slightly bitter, with an aftertaste of grain, and a little caramel, citron and herbs. It is not a bad beer; it is very natural tasting, actually, but it is too average for a craft belgian style beer. Presentation is too simple, and it lacks a customized crown cap.
