3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-12: Nydelig skum som varte. Fyldig og krydret smak, passe bittert - enda en god belgisk blondine! Passe søt og passe bitter. God munnfylde med tydelig karbonering. Absolutt verdt å prøve igjen.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Served between fridge& room temperature, it poured a cloudy golden colour with a lot of head, which settled down to about a knuckle’s worth and stayed around for half of the glass. Very faint aroma but quite a sweet/malty taste while in the mouth and no bitterness at all. Went down smooth with a very faint bubble on the back of the throat. Left a pleasant aftertaste for a few moments after each sip.

Dominant metallic flavour, might have drunk this a little too chilled. Barely any head.

This Belgian Blond has a malty sweet aroma and pours a light golden complexion with a heavy froofy head that disapears quickly. It has a lighter flavor than you would expect from the aroma but than has a lingering light bitter taste on the palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
December 2008: Brown 33cl bottle, plenty of life left (May 2010), drank on a cold but dry December afternoon in Shropshire, England.
Poured into one of my Duvel glasses. Poured as a Duvel, trying to get a large head. The head did arrive, but it was made of large bubbles and didn’t rise to the glass rim. It fell to less than half an inch as I studied and sniffed for aroma.
Good golden yellow colour, clear and clean, a true straw blonde. The head almost white, but not fully, a light cream colour maybe.
Yeast and hops hit the nose as well as caramel, mixed fruit too.
Fairly dry in the mouth, but with a kick, the 6.5% is very evident at the front and in the aftertaste. Harsher than a Duvel, more acidic and a certain ungraciousness about it.
A headache producing sort of beer?
The more I had, the less I enjoyed it. I had to eat some dry biscuits to help me finish the tasting, so something was wrong (for me anyway).
