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.

Vignale (2718) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. Gyllenfärgad klar vätska med skum som snabbt försvinner, en del bottensediment. Söt doft av honung, apelsinskal, belgiska jästestrar, grön banan. Rustik kraftig blond med en hel del jästkaraktär, fruktiga estrar, syltade apelsinskal, honung och en lätt pomeransbeska. Trevlig och välgjord utan att vara anmärkningsvärd.

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.
