33cl bottle. Clear to slightly hazy pale yellow colour with a nice creamy to frothy white head. Grassy, grainy, hoppy aroma. Sweetish malts in the flavour, grainy, some fruitiness and yeast. Quite a lagery feel to this one, but I like it.

Een lekker Gents biertje. Een goede kleur en schuimkraag. Ideaal als je op café zit in Gent.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3558) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Taster draft at brewery. Blond is a slightly deeper & clearer gold than the Wit with a fruity pithy orange peel aroma. Round carbonation but with a prickly mouthfeel. The taste is fairly classic fruity belgium blonde with perhaps a touch more wheatiness to it.

Hopkikker (24) - Lommel, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2015
Cloudy yellow with nice snowwhite foam, aroma of herbs, spices and yeast, smells refreshing, begins softly with little carbonization, tastes malty with lots of herbs, as the foam slowly disappears the malty taste makes slowly room for a more prominent herb and floral character, average beer in taste

corkyrory66 (1010) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2015
Bière blonde basique avec malt d’orge, et des herbes qui remplacent le houblon (le gruut). Niveau abv de 5 % ... On ne va pas casser des briques !! Couleur jaune doré brillant, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale par centaines, bien vives. Mousse blanc cassé crémeuse, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de blé, pointe de miel, fleurs des prés, nougat blanc, pointe de réglisse. 1ère bouche douce à soyeuse, à l’entrée mitigée malt et herbes, sans relief. Arrière-bouche très gommée, voire même gommineuse. 2ème où rien ne s’approfondit. Arrière-bouche avec du vague à l’âme. 3ème avec des herbes un peu mieux placées, mais toujours très vagues. Arrière-bouche plate. Longueur un peu plus pleine, plus intégrée, mais à la peine. Jambes fines, groupées, un peu collantes. Levure douce mais très maigre. Alcool tout à fait indifférent à son sujet … d’ailleurs, que peut-il le petit ?? Finale innocente. CONCLUSION : une bière de très moyenne gamme, sans relief.

Draught. Hazy golden liquid with medium to big white head. Aroma of bread, dried fruit, fruity yeast, grain and banana. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of banana, sugar and dried fruit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent.
