Dark blonde colour, white nicely lacing head. Sweet and grainy malty nose and taste, a little yeasty acidity and nuanced alcoholic warmth. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation and body. Decent Belgian blonde.

Bottled@HBF2014. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy/foamy head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild alcohol and some nectary notes. Flavour is fruits, nectar, some toffee and mild alcohol as well. Balanced, and actually quite tasty.

330ml bottle (HBF2014)
Strange herbal aroma, a little medicinal. Clear pale orange, large persistent tight head. Herbal hops, a bit vegetal. Crisp palate. Dried apricot in the finish. A touch resiny, but also smooth. Odd.

Tap at the brewery in Hoeve. Clear brown orange with a thick sticky white head. Lace. Aroma is motzerella cheese and thyme. Flavour is earthy, malt and fussel alcohol. Some berry fruits in there as well. Fine med carb. Sweetish finish. Disappointing.

Bottle from Asao. Deep gold, high head. Malty, honey nose, lemon, bread. Sweet and lemony flavor, honey and toast. Slightly tangy citrus. A bit too sweet and one-dimensional, but ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden amber beer, a clear liquid with a Rocky white head.
It smelled like lime and cherry? Fruity.
The taste was not that special. A bit sweetness nad a short duration.
The body is light, a thin and watery texture and a fizzy carbo.

A bottle from Asao’s in Kyoto for just 400 yen. This was a pleasent surprise, it had a nice sweet fruity aroma. It had a very light carbonation giving a nice mouthfeel. It was surprising that it was 6.8%, drinking it I’d never have guessed that. The taste was malt with lots of fruits, some yeasty estery notes. A very nice blond beer. I guess if you are in Holland it is kind of average but in Japan this is a pretty good beer at a decent price.
