Light blond, bubbly head, moderately stable. Yeasty aroma, hints of hops. Quite bitter taste, some spices coming through. Quite full body, oily texture. Leaves a long lasting bitter aftertaste.

33cl bottle. Giesbaargs Muurken Blond.
APPEARANCE: golden colored beer, large but unstable white head.
NOSE: yeast, hops, some weird kind of water though...
TASTE: I get the idea of the beer, though there is need for quite some ’fine tuning’. Too bitter and too much coriander. But I think this can get better with some adjustments in the recipe!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle: poured into a Duvel glass during a random beer tasting evening (at home) on 30 May 2013.
Good golden look, no sediment left the bottle, deep white foaming head on top.
Yeast and spicy hop notes in the nose.
Taste was the same with hints of citrus bitterness to make the beer sharper and crisper than the aroma suggested.
A good example of a Belgian blond.

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, yeast, over ripe fruits, and citrusy fruits, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker golden coloured beer. Ah good head that sticks nice, just should hold a bit longer. Decent smell of fruit, hops and slightly some spices. Good citrussy, in a nice way. Hoppy taste, with the citrus getting trough also, good bittering. Not totally outbalanced, but not bad.
