Frisches Blonde mit Zitronenanklängen im Duft und Geschmack, minimal hefig. Wird zur Mitte malzig und klingt trocken aus. Obwohl nicht vollends überzeugend, ganz nett.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hoppy aroma with some creamy aspect to it. Rather bitter taste. Not sugary, like it says on the label.

December 2008: This brown 33cl bottle which had a long neck and was very un-Belgian in shape. It had a normal cap, but there were two holes for a flip-top style closure on the neck as well. Claims to be ’Naturally Sugar Free’ and 100% malt.
On my return from Antwerp in December (an 11 hour nightmare of a journey, due to accidents and idiots) I dropped this bottle on my drive as I unloaded the car. Luckily it landed on its cap, but it loosened the seal and began spurting out.
I managed to save about 25cl and this is the review.
Poured into a Palm tulip glass the shook up beer was a pale milky white colour and very cloudy (well I had dropped it). The head of white foaming bubbles stayed as I wolfed the beer down, remember I’d been sat in the car for 11 hours!
The label mentions spices and I found coriander in both the aroma and taste, or I think I did.
Obviously fairly malty in the taste and aroma too, this was a good well balanced Blonde and I wish I’d got two of them instead of just the one.
I really enjoyed this beer, but after the journey a warm pint of Fosters Skippy Piss might have tasted OK.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home shared with dad. Gusher. Hazy orange color with a lot of floaties, small off-white head that leaves a nice lacing. Smells like tomato-juice mixed with red wine: a big no for that combination. Taste sour-bitterness, a hint of chocolate somehow and again I’m reminded of tomato-juice. Weird stuff. Don’t like it.
