3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 CL bottle at home. Pours with a large white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is subtle (this is no hop-bomb) with a balance of malt and hop. Taste is again balanced, with malty sweetness and a good dry bitterness. Medium bodied with a long, bitter finish. Overall, a well crafted beer. This is really very drinkable, the hopping is subtle but nicely done. Some blonde beers err towards sweetness, it is good to see this moving in the other direction.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange trouble, effervescence forte de visu, moyenne au palais, col blanc épais crémeux. Les malts s’effacent rapidement au profit d’une forte amertume houblonnée et légèrement fruitée qui ne quitte le palais qu’après un certain temps, assez ronde en bouche.

330ml bottle (HBF2014, Friday)
Pleasantly sweet belgian blond aroma. Pretty rough yeasty taste. Simple smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Not grabbing me, perhaps the opposite, it’s a bit dirty.
