Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy amber with a huge frothy head, that lasts through the session. The arome is sweet from the yeast, oranges. It’s a lovely smell. The taste is malty and peppery from the hops, tasty but a tad too hoppy for me. It’s a great beer, classic Contreras stuff.

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!

Drunk from 33cl bottle bought from Malting Pot, Brussels. Pleasant hoppy blond beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière comme on le sait de 6,5 % abv, puisque le brasseur en a aligné 4 sur le même niveau !! Couleur dorée un peu ambrée. Clarté légèrement troublée par un peu de levure. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, avec du blanc d’oeuf en haut. Arômes un peu serrés et courts de pain blanc et butterscotch. 1ère bouche sur un malt un peu grillé, et un houblon d’une amertume un peu plate. Arrière-bouche pinçante. 2ème nez de câpres. 2ème bouche avec un bouquet vraiment faible. 3ème avec de meilleures impressions, davantage sur le malt avec un houblon en arrière-fond. La longueur offre de la marmelade, pomme de terre et du miel de châtaigne. La levure est douce, fine, mais faible. L’alcool est correct pour son niveau, mais ne remonte pas les saveurs. La finale est très linéaire, sans envergure. Conclusion : une bière tout ce qu’il y a de plus banal, avec même des saveurs un peu désagréables. A revoir totalement par le brasseur.

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.

Golden in colour, with a fluffy thick head. Aroma of pears and wafts of alcohol come through too. The alcohol does stand out a little in this beer but it also has some great Belgian yeast character.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2013
Dorée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée avec des notes fruitées et une petite amertume houblonnée. Une parmi tant d’autres...

Zupastan (74) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2013
33cl bottle @ home, from Maes Dendermonde; golden coloured with big white head; high carbo; smell is overripe fruits; taste is malty, dry, metal, some unknown off-flavour, bitter aftertaste. Average.

Bamsen78 (2411) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with abundant, stable but airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and caramel with regular hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of caramel malt and fruit. Bitter finish with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Good, but would be better without the metallic touch.

Vaiz (3143) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, some lemon and a little artificial. Flavor is spicy bitter, peppery, fruity, slightly sharp, a bit dusty and with a huge amount of carbonation.
