Draught -- Poured a very golden color. Light bubbly appearance. Faint sweet and pear smell. Tasted sweet with some basic malts. Smooth going down. Some white pepper maybe?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden colour with very little head. Slightly fruity smell, but not that strong. Taste is fruity again, a hint of straw some malt in there. Not bad by any means, but there are far better beers of this style to be tasted.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Was sold this beer with the promise that it was better than Leffe (my favorite session beer). Poured a golden amber. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste was tinny, very slight fruit. Bitterness was not bad, but just sort of unpleasant. Not impressed at all. Have another bottle, will re-rate if my experience is different with the next one.

Bottled. Very fine beer. Poured a clear golden color with a large white head. Smells of fruit and malt, somewhat tinny. Tastes very good, complex but well-balanced. Subtle hints of apple, banana, and peach. Good malt blend extremely smooth an easy to drink. Very nice!

Draft - Le Sous Bock, Paris. Golden body, big white head. Initial impression was of fruit, strawberries & cream and malt. Long sweet finish. Very palatable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another oft-sampled Belgian that has somehow slipped through the net. Piss-pale pour topped momentarily with comical bathsuds. Nose of tin and banana. Thin and papery with touches of sherbet, wheat, banana and metal. Sweet, fruity and metallic with the vaguest nibble of parting bitterness. Possibly contains alcohol. Leffe-lite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 33 cl bottle. Clear golden color, sparkling. Big, lovley, creamy white head. Fruit, wheat and some sourness in aroma. Flavor is yeast, sweet malt, hops, fruit (banana), a bit sour, nice bitterness. Balanced, easy drinking beer for a evening at the balcony.

I ran into this beer everywhere in Amsterdam. It is very much a standard in "Belgian Blond" flavor.

Bottle (from Tesco). Better than the Dubbel although it has the same cheap tinny malt and grainyness. Strangely enough its more noticeable here, as its not masked by masses of toffee, but is less offputting in this beer. Other than the fairly poor malts there is some fruity fermentation flavours and a mild sweetness which lead into a reasonably drinkable finish with just a touch of bitterness.
