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.

bartlebier (3249) - 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 (633) - 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 (4442) - 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!

MarkoNm (2189) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 14, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color, topped with a fair and nicely lasting white foamy head. Very nice fruity aroma, some tropical fruits, sweet peaches and gentle citruses, grapefruity dominating later on. Taste is spicy and citrusy (soury) with moderate bitterness. A bit peppery with short lived herbal aftertaste. Very fresh feel to it. Fairly light and superbly drinkable.

Gilca (11) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 6, 2015
Too much clogging presence of hops in a beer that should be more refreshing. Light and fruity aroma. A beer to cool off, without any pretensions.

Gran cerveza! fresca, refrescante,con buen aroma, buen cuerpo y excelente sabor con matices a hierbas y frutas. No me puedo creer que además sea sin gluten!!! Gran opción para los celiacos frente a tras cervezas gluten free de baja calidad.
