330ml Bottle. This pours a light golden body topped with a medium last head. Its aroma is floral and mildly sweet with hints of spices and hops. Its yasye is surprisingly malty with a citrus smoky finish with the slightest dry smoky linger. A very nice blonde this one.

Hazy straw colored pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Very estery notes in the nose. Some yeast notes as well, and in the mouth. Malty taste with some of the esters coming through.

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
A nice frothy Belgian blonde ale with exciting aroma of yeast and malt. Tastes of light caramel, a little honey, citrus and also some sweet notes of overripe banana and a little yeast. A nice plump blonde ale which hops bitterness perhaps a little too sharp for the type. Hops does not contribute to any fruity taste or to keep the relative weakness of malted character in balance. The hops are sharp and incoherent and contribute instead to a little abrupt transition from the otherwise fine malty tones. Perhaps the abrupt transition between malt and hops also is due to the, in my opinion, too harsh carbonation as this beer has. I mostly likes the soft carbonated blonde ale where the fine and sometimes very anonymous fruit and malt shades gently blend with a retracted and tasteful hops. The finish ends too quickly.

jamaty (1328) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Bastante turbia, color miel dorada con un dedo de espuma. Bastante burbuja. Aroma a malta, con toques de canela y miel. Menos dulce en el sabor, aunque mantiene ligeramente los recuerdos de miel. Algo de trigo también. Carbonatación alta y cuerpo medio. Bien en general.

Nice, sweet blonde beer. Not really special but a delicious beer. Love the citrus tones at the end

Icedwarf (801) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Helder levendig bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zuur fruitig met sporen van citrus. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen. Standaard bier, gewoon goed maar niet bijzonder.
