3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid golden colour, with lovely CO2 development. Light bit frothy but fading white head. Noses of sweet yeast, barnyard aromas some alcohol and faint bubblegum. Develops a slick oily layer on the palate and tastes medium sweet. Medium body with hints of some spices to it. Fizzyness stays quite a while on the tongue. Pleasant medium long finish.

Bottle. Pale yellow beer with an ok white head. Hoppy yeasty aroma with fruity notes. Hoppy yeasty flavor, some citrus, some bread. A bit aggressive flavor. Spicy finish with some hops.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw with a creamy head; wheat and citrus aroma; similar flavours with a smooth creamy texture; long tart and bitter citrus finish. Not exciting.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The head is white, but not very robust. The body has a yellow-brown and cloudy body. There are bigger yeast pieces swimming in the beer. It smells fruity and yeasty. It smells fruity, sweet but also alcoholic, herb and a little bit metallic.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dec 2009: Cork and Caged 0.75 litre brown bottle produced for the Delhaize Supermarket chain, this one was bought from their store in De Panne, close to ’Plopsaland’.
Poured into four tulip glasses in one pour. Each glass had a slight haze, the sediment stayed mostly in the bottle. True blond in colour and with the normal snow white head.
Yeast and hops with a sweet and sour (apples?) aroma from the brew.
The bottle had a life until 14 May 2011, so it was young when comsummed (28th Dec 09). Fizzy, crisp and refreshing, but with very little body, flavour or substance. If it had been allowed to age a little it might have been better, but I doubt it.
Cheap supermarket beer, the 7% isn’t detectable and the beer was frankly watery.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. From Belgium. Courtesy of Brandman.
Cloudy pale golden colour with small to average size creamy white head.
Fruity hoppy aroma with some sweetness and Belgian yeast.
Unpleasant boozy flavour with harsh hops. Tastes unfinished. All good qualities of Belgian Blond are missing. Real trashy Blond. Disappointment.
