3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle brought over by alobar, pours a pure golden color with a huge white head that seems almost solid as it settled down to about a 1/4 layer. lots of apple and lots of yeast in the aroma. flavor has a lot of apple going on, with hints of caramel and yeast, and a very fine carbonation that makes for a very smooth easy drinking beer. nothing negative in the aftertaste, just more of the same apple sweetness and smooth flavors.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium, white, coarse head. Clear copper body. Faint aroma of licorice and apples. Deep, sourish taste of again apples with notes of licorice. Quite bitter. Dry, sweetish aftertaste. Complex, yet light and refreshing. Very good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 (May 2010)
Fairly basic interpretation but I wouldn’t have expected much more. Flavours are driven with spice, corriander and leave quite a thick feeling on the palate. Good for the $$ (4 EuR at Carrefour)
Nice creamy snow white head early but settles quickly to leave a thin residual with good lacing. Very clear medium amber in colour. Text book correct nose with a decent lift of coriander. Palate is a slight let down as the flavours never really kick in. Malts and fruit notes are faint and perhaps slightly stale, despite the 6/06 UBD, but do improve as the beer warms up. This is the second so-so bottle I’ve had in the past 4 months.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice, but could be stronger, it was cloudy and very good in flavor, the foam was great and sticked to the glass.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured with average sized white head that showed nice lacing. Nose is of coriander/clove, wheat and citrus, taste is sweet but not too sweet. I am really enjoying this beer. Seems like I am bucking the trend here by giving it such a good rating, but I really enjoy this very much.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like a lager but with a good head that lasts well. Touch of honey in the aroma. This is good, not too sweet, well balanced and the alcohol content does not show at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of wheat and wheat, with spicy yeast. The brew pours a clear sparkling honey
amber. The titanic dense white rocky head is a work of art and is the reason the brew
scores a 5 for appearance. The brew has a heavy malt start combined with a high level of
acidity. The bitter finish is intermingled with a fruity alcohol sweetness. The light body is
creamy and soft.

Belgian Blondes are one of my favorite beer styles. The best have restrained fruit, spice and a full palate. They leave sweetness to their heavier Triple cousins. This Blonde, however, gets a little too close to being a triple. The palate is thinner than I like (though certainly not too thin) and the fruit is a little too robust. Not bad, but I prefer Witkap or Sterkens for a Blonde.
