Really liked this one. Bright yellow but with a cloudy appearance. Tastes of citrus and bread. Some hints of cellar. Really nice foam top. Soft carbonation complements the flavours. A joy to drink.

Most immediate impression is the huge carbonation as the bottle gushes as I open it. Unsurprisingly, pours golden with a large bubbly head that leaves a huge amount of lacing. Fairly indistinct aroma, with just some hints of belgian yeast, bread and honey. The taste is fairly hoppy sweet with noticeable malts but again a little underwhelming. Medium bodied. Alcohol tastes stronger than the labelled 6.5% ABV. By no means bad but not spectacular either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Fruity hoppy nose, with caramel, lemon, and a strange rubbing alcohol note. Hazy orange/amber color, a thick fluffy white head, and good lace. Citrus hits right away, but suddenly turns rotten, some grass, bad apples, yeast, and a bit of phenolic stuff. Medium body. The alcohol is way too apparent. Almost as if it were fortified. Not so pleasant.

This blond is not characteristic of most blondes, it comes in with midl aroma and an non distinct appearance. But the first taste has a smoky flavour, but doesn’t linger (as that wouldn’t be nice). Delicious, distinctive and enjoyable!
