3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From cask at In De Wildeman on 8 April 2011. Murky gold colour. The dry hopping manifests itself as a lovely lemon and elderflower tang on the palate and a distinctly perfumed, tropical fruit presence on the nose. Clean mouthfeel with plenty of bitterness and a good, lasting bite lingering into an extended aftertaste. Very refreshing and enjoyable, not to mention extremely drinkable.

Cask @ In De Wildeman. Hazy orange color with soapy head. Hoppy aroma’s: citrus, resin, grassy and hints of malt. Somewhat bitter flavor with just a hint of sourness. Soft carbonation. Nice bitter finish. Excellent tasty thirst quencher.

20th March 2011
On tap at Arends Nest. Hazy amber beer with a good white head. Crispish palate, just a tiny bit dry. Amazingly sharp hops! Stinging orange and tangerine with a bitter marmalade backend. A real poky hop beer and very different from the regular Blond!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ de Molen. Aroma is huge hop, but it’s being a bit overpowered by the malt aroma from the brewery. American style of cascade clearly noticeable though. Flavour is cheesy and earthy american hops with a subtle malt profile. Nice, nothing new, just a very nice blonde/ipa mashup.
