Wonderful golden color packed with lots of flavor. Nice blend of fruit flavors with just a touch of sweetness.

Mishnok (97) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
500ml glass at restaurant in France. Assume it was from keg. Nice gold colour with good white head. Appealing to look at. Aromas of citrus and yeasts which carry through to the flavour. Decent enough beer to have with a meal or as s refreshment on a summer's day, but not Grimbergen's best offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suoraan sanoen pahaa. Siiderimäistä, kukkaista. Ei toimi allekirjoittaneelle kyllä lainkaan. Ei haittaisi vaikka tippuisi valikoimista.

0.33l Bottle. It’s not the best beer from the Grimbergen brewery. It’tastes ok, but I expected a little more. It can’t compare to an Leffe Blond for example.

The direct concurrent of Leffe has some notable qualities. While this is clearly not a great beer, it’s a very enjoyable one, with a relatively strong taste for a Blonde. Alcohol level is decent too, this is indeed a Belgian beer. I put this one over Leffe opposite because of a more pronounced taste, which is more in accordance with my preferences. Solid stuff! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

12oz bottle pour. Clear golden pour with lasting peripheral white ring, some lacing. Slightly fruity, slightly grassy nose with a bit of maltiness. Slightly sweet flavour with a bit of spice. Light and crisp, and easily drinkable.

Marko (4953) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 6, 2016
From a Konzum in Mostar, BiH. Well, figured I won’t likely be finding it at a lower price, I finally decided to get this, more than 3 times cheaper than in any bar in Croatia. Anyway, full golden body, clear, somwhat lasting, creamy white head. Suitably complex aroma for the style, even if it doesn’t thrill, grainy, honey, dusty notes, green fruit (not acetaldehyde), light plum, sweetish, fresh. The taste, however, is immediately a letdown, sweetish, notes of propolis (?!), some olives, some vague green fruit, ok malty backbone, sligthly on the sweeter side, light body, no finish and aftertaste really, appart from a very vague bitterish touch at the back of the tongue, light fruity touch, tartness. Quite drinkable for the ABV, but the taste doesn’t do it for me at all. Just OK.

Bonne bière, mousse légère, arômes multiples et parfois surprenant, niveau gustatif généreux. Globalement une bière sympathique

33cl-fles bij Marie & David. Merci! U: Helder goudblond met witte schuimkraag die snel inzakt. G: Pilsmout, beetje brood en veel gist. S: Moutzoetig, opnieuw veel gist en een metallische afdronk. M: Gepaste carbonatie, weinig body. Typisch product van massaproductie.
