2010 Vintage. Thx! for sharing Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle. Clear, bright orange with very fast gone white head. Sour spices and old sour oranges, infection or adverse effects of age? , sour medicinal, hint rubbing alcohol,… in the nose. Bitter medicinal, sour old oranges, bitter metallic, sour yeast, light sweetness, attic, hay dust,… in the taste. Light and metallic. I would assume that age has not been kind for this beer.

Bottle; hazy gold, rapidly diminishing head; aroma of ripe summer fruits; taste is led by sweetish malts and soft orangey fruit, maybe even a hint of pineapple; a balancing hint of bitterness in the finish; pleasingly light, much better than the Brugse Zot I had the day before; it’s like a superior, more refined version of Leffe Blonde.

12-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This Belgian Blond pours a very hazy, yellow-gold body with over an inch of off-white head that settles to a wide ring. The nose is bready, slightly sweet, a bit grassy, and fairly spicy, with quite a dusty quality to it, as well as some juniper. It’s a malty beer, with yeasty bread and toasty bread crust, but the mildly bitter hops add a floral and somewhat grassy character, and there is a pleasant yeasty spiciness in the finish. The light-medium bodied beer is well-carbonated, but it seems that much of the carbonation goes toward generating the large head, which results in a lower than desired level of carbonation on the palate. Larger patches of lacing stick to the glass. Overall, this beer won’t be memorable, but it’s a pleasant, drinkable Blond to sip on over the course of an evening.

Pale malts, bread, grains and some hops in aroma. The flavor is malty, yeast and a decent hoppiness in finish. A good Belgian Ale.
