33 cl. bottle. Golden, cloudy and sparkling and with a rocky head that’s mostly disappearing. It has a medium body and average carbonation. Aroma of citrus. The flavor is well balanced with medium sweetness, medium bitterness and a lightly sweet-sour (citrus?) finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle from La Roche sampled at the bike-house in the garden.] A favorite blond (Leffe go home) with lots of ingredients. Despite the boring look of the fluid it takes revence with a great white and fat longlasting head. Almost triplenotes such as heavy fruits, lemon, alcohol, perfume, pine, yeast, dryness, herbal flower and also stickyness. For the fireplace!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at yespr’s place. Pours a hazy golden colour with a good well lasting white head. Honey, a lot of honey indeed in the aroma with some fruitiness. The flavour os quite sweet with honey dark fruits (raisins) caramel and alcohol. Lots of honey in the finish. Reminds me of a mead with plenty of alcohol. Darn god.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The style: Belgian Blonde Ale
The conclusion: Basic and boring sweet and yeast potion
The how: Bottle, a few months old
The look: Cloudy blonde body with a medium white head.
The stuff: Very sweet and very yeasty beer. Dry crunchy honeyed malts, some coriander and not much hops. The already high sweetness level gets worse as the beer warms up. Total lack of complexity here. As a Belgian Ale this is as creative as an army haircut.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow beer with a creamy white head. Hoppy nose reminding me of overripe grapefruit. Dry mouthfeel. A bit oily. Fruity and herbal flavours with a mild bitter and yeasty ending. The carbonation tickles the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orangey yellow color with yeast sediment and a thick, bubbly, white head. Aroma of cantaloup, hops and yeast. The flavor is a belgian blonde classic, noble hops, fruits (inluding cantaloup and citrus) and spicy yeast, it’s also reasonnably dry. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. I’m quite surprise by this beer, it’s well-done and very enjoyable.
