COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Presenta un color daurat pàllid, translúcida a la vista i amb escuma blanca persistent. D’aroma intens, neta i afruitada, destaquem els tocs cítrics, la fruita tropical àcida, els records a raïm blanc al costat de notes de meló d’aigua. En boca destaca per la seva frescor amb records de fruites exòtiques. Bombolla integrada i final amb una lleugera amargor que convida a beure’n una una vegada i una altra.

Maricarmen (6) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 27, 2016 does not count
Una buena cerveza elaborada por espiga. Color apagado. Aroma muy limitado. No es la mejor de esta fábrica

Iznogud (2194) - CROATIA - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml courtesy of Miro B. Shared with him and JFK10000. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Great citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor not so much, bit fruity, yeasty, light to medium bodied. Bit disappointing after promising aroma.

Sigmund (6551) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2016
RBESG 2016 in Barcelona. Shared bottle at the Red Ant. Gluten free, 4.5%. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Fruity and spicy aroma and flavour, light bodied. Okay.

BlackHaddock (6123) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Shared bottle with the RBESG guys in Red Ant on 8th July 2016. Poured a bright, clear and clean golden colour, on top a small white head. Aroma was floral, grassy and slightly citrusy, as was the taste semi-sweet in nature, so some malts must have been in the brew but mostly hop centric throughout. Decent.

Maakun (3446) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
Tap at CatBar. Clear golden with small white head. Light grassy, lime, lemon peel, fresh herbs and flowers. There’s barely any malts, just light sugar and a touch of bread. Light sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Pretty good!

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 27, 2016
Heller hopfiger Antrunk, weich, geringe Herbe. Spritzig, dann grasig trocken werdend. Mild bitter, langer Nachhall. Eher unsüffig. 10/10/9/11//11

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2016
33cl brewed 08/2015, bb08/2016 probably past its peak... Pours a fizzy pale whey yellow. Unfortunately all bandaid and rubber in aroma, over remnants of apricot, plastic pineapple and citrus. Turned in transit? Fizzy mouthfeel, delivering bandaid rubber through fruit cocktail. Thin, quite carbonated. Bref: fizzy fruity brandaid. Might revisit at source.

akoeninger (654) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Surprised it is gluten free. A bright and citrusy ale with a good hoppy bite. A little bitter in the finish for a blonde ale imo, but that’s not to say it isn’t very good and tasty.

luttonm (4489) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle at Beerville, Belgrade. Gluten Free, cool. Hazy yellow-gold, white foam. Big dank pine-week hoppy aroma. GF sweet body with great hops. Odd to call this a blonde, but its very good, a terrific surprise!
