(Duysters Loterbol 8 Blond) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 8%.
Clear body, pale orange in colour. Tall white head, thick, good retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of yeast, light malts, apricots.
Taste is a typical belgian ale, some apricot and peaches, light yeast and sugar, some light floral notes as well. Good bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, good carbonation,
Not bad, although nothing special.

Peach blonde ale tasted when the brewery was still Duysters. Unfortunately the sample I had, was an old one: no more head worth mentioning and strong maderisation. The honeyish and spicy basic character was still obvious enough - and in fact it had aged graciously. Now time to re-rate this as a young beer...
