Loving it... once my sister brought this beer for me from the Netherlands to Spain where I live.. I enjoyed it so much that I started to look for sales points around my location and luckily I found a shop about 1.5 hours drive from my place but it is worth it !

Thanks for sharing! Sampled draft @ De Prael during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Sampled as “Bitter”. Hazy orange, quite hazy, small white head. Nose is boring, sugar, malt, yeast, no complexity,… Taste is dull plaster, BE-like, big yeast, more sugar, dull sugary orange,… Yeasty, bland, overly yeasty & sugar etc. Didn’t pick this one for a Kölsch, tasted quite Belgian for me in a bad way.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pours hazy light golden. Head is frothy and white.
Low aromas of vanilla, lemon zest, porridge.
Creamy, nicely metallic. Not really bitter or long-lingering, but nice.
