A new beer brewed with one European (Belgian?) and one American hop (big secret). As from 2015 there’s also a dark version, Bruin, so the brewery changed the name from Oscar to Oscar Blond.

Hazy colour, almost amber. Head diminishes quickly. Aroma of banana, vanilla, yeast and some smokiness. The smokiness is even more represented in the taste. Ends in a soft and rather dry bitterness. A well balanced beer with an original twist (the smokiness).

7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival. Blond brew with a white topping. Mixed bag in the nose and taste, spicy, yeasty, malty and citrusy all rolled into one happy blend of aromas and flavours. Decent and unbalanced, but in a nice way!

Loads of carbonisation, too much for me, head was waaay too big. Nose and palate are ok but not that hoppy. A bit disapointing...

Hazy blond colour, white rocky foam. Medium carbonation. Malty, notes of citrus. Grassy, light tart hints. Drinkable, ok.

hay yellow blond with a hazy off-white head. nose: malts, burned/ashes, yeast, spices, interesting. smoked meat. most of this is coming back in the taste, with grains on the forefront, malts, some belgian hops, smoked meat. light body, bit bitter, very light, average carbo. an atypical blond for sure, good for a starter, especially with BBQ plans. but very specific, likes and dislikes.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2015 Newish Eutropius beer tasted when it was still simply called Oscar without the ’Blond’ (i.e. before the advent of its brown counterpart). Thick, very dense and moussy, lacing, egg white head and deep and warm orangey ’old gold’ colour, clear with quiet sparkling. Aroma strikingly reminiscent of abbey cheese, further impressions of soap, grass, biscuit, cooked potato, white wine, raw cauliflower, apple peel, mango (probably the secret American hop variety), yoghurt, rose petals, nougat, chamomille, powder sugar, dough; there is something unusual about it too, I guess the added secret spice - my bet is on sweet gale (as in Gageleer)? Fruity onset, a bit restrained but sweet and appetizing, apple, pineapple and some hints of banana, minerally carbo, very vague salty touch, some citrus acidity too, dryish, yeasty, pale malt sweetness, creamy and rounded, retronasally that mysterious spice again (and I stick to my sweet gale hypothesis), leading to a dry yeast and hops finish, grassy, leafy but less ’American’ and citrussy than I had hoped, quite long, with some solvents and wodka-like alcohol. My best Eutropius experience so far, honest and quenching; this is far from bad, though the alcohol could have been better hidden and honestly, there are a lot of contenders in this particular ’Belgian blond’ style. Still: enjoyable alright.

Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze brudnej pomarańczy. Piana jest spora o kolorze białym. NOS : aromat piwa jest intensywny o wyraźnych owocowych estrach podobnych do moreli, mandarynki i w ogolę owocach z puszki. Do tego biszkopt, rozpuszczalnik i obora. USTA : średnio gazowane (jak na piwo belgijskie) o średnio-gęstej konsystencji. Piwo jest (również) średnio słodkie o nutach słodowych i ma się wrażenie owocowych. Te ostatnie są uwydatnione przez delikatną wytrawność tego piwa. Gorzkość bardzo umiarkowana dla przepalonego chmielem hop heada. Posmak owocowy i wytrawny. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest typowym "blondem" z delikatnie przesadzonym "rozpuszczalnikiem". Ale nie ma dramatu bo całkiem dobrze skomponowane. Nie urywa i już go nie kupię no chyba że z ceny zejdą to go wleję do jakiegoś sosu czy zupy. OCENA : smak : 5/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : 0

Alone at home. Clearing goldblond colored beer with lange diminishing white head and no carbonation. Spicy hopped aroma with some rooster hints. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is rooster bitter. Nice!
