0.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
According to the brewer, this is ’in the German style’ - not in any one I am familiar with. There’s way too much yeast in the bottle, which makes it look muddy and gives it a mealy taste. Not a success, though it may be better on tap. I liked the old label better than the new one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (330ml) at De Ysbreeker, Amsterdam, May 15] 3rd rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a deep clear orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of sweet fruit, citrus and grassy hops. Flavour follows the aroma and has a decent amount of hops, and like the name suggests, it tastes like a bitter Blonde. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer.

Aroma of malt, sweetish fruits, big floral notes, yeast, bit perfumed, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. Not a Kölsch at all, but I like this easy drinker.
