DutchMark (239) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2014
Not impressed. The flavor is dominated by sweetness and some metallic element. The hops are there but are hardly noticeable. It is not bad but quite boring.

Pours blond with a white head. Nose is grass, honey, and caramel. Taste is sweet and a bit bitter. Palate is malty and like beer from aluminium barrels. B@H

PriorL (2492) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2014
25cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer. Small stable white head. NOSE: fruity, caramel, some bread like nose, rather sweet and little artificial. Some faint liquorice? Even some hay. Some alcohol as well. TASTE: watery mess... some grains and faint bitterness in the aftertaste, not quite one for the thirst and not quite one for the taste actually... More bad than OKé, nose was quite pleasant though...

Une blonde plus que classique qui passera toujours bien mais n'aura rien d'exceptionnel. Bière de soif en belgique.

langeveld12 (283) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Pours an average frothy white head that mostly diminishes. Body is clear yellow, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (light bread, hay), light hops (flowers, spruce, orange), light yeasts (leather), banana, apple, pear and peach. Flavor is light acidic, then light sweet is added and finally very light bitter. Body is light to medium with watery texture and soft carbonation. Not very special but refreshing and actually better then I expected.
