A little too sweet and, though I tend to prefer the balance to shift towards the malty both overall and for the style, this Blonde has too much sweetness without the body to match--tastes closer to a thin biere de garde with an unpleasant syrupy after taste that makes it difficult to have more than a single glass without quickly feeling full. Definitely not a bad beer in small quantities but not a stand out, either. I would try it on draft if I saw it as such to give it a second chance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 0.75. Colore dorato vira all’ocra. Al naso sentori floreali e di miele mille fiori. Al gusto si sentono i malti, miele mille fiori, luppoli non eccessivamente in primo piano. Retrogusto lungo.

Vladivostok (446) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Pretty ubiquitous in the Low Countries. Pale golden in colour and other than the obvious alcohol. Difficult to discern much in the way of distinctive flavours and rather thin for its gravity. Not the best.

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Pale golden clear pour with thick, white foam. Ester yeast in the nose with some sweetness from citrus hops and hay malt. Hops dominate the taste with a crisp, bitter finish. Medium body, with active fizz and some slickness. I preferred it slightly cold rather than room temperature.

Demens (241) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 18, 2016
0,33l bottle. Cloudy golden colour with slowly shrinking big white head. Aroma: Basement aromas and an overall yeasty caracter shows from the glass with hiding notes of corn and sugar syrup. Taste: Very sweet start and mouthfeel but I feel It’s an artifical sweetness. Has some light, hiding bitter and sour caracter too. Not bad but the artifical sweetness make no sense to me and unbalances this beer. Light/medium body with average carbonation. Long sour finish. Not that good at all.

jgb9348 (5684) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, curacao, full oranges and a bit of hay - nice. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rich flavour of the malt, honey, grass, curacao and a bit of the grain. Aftertaste shows a lot of sweetness from the honey, oranges and a good deal of yeast throughout with some bread and grain noticeable still. Overall, a nice and rich beer that shows the belgian characheristics without being too mild throughout. Sadly, after seeing this and passing it by (probably sampling it as well without rating it), I’m sampling this 33 cL bottle purchased from Magasin Tiahura (Convenience Store) in Moorea, French Polynesia on 17-August-2016 for 320 XPF (CFP) sampled at my hotel here in French Polynesia a few minutes later on 17-August-2016.
