BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, - NOV 17, 2012
33cl Bottle poured into the correct (lovely) glass on a sun terrace of a bar in Valkenburg, Holland, 23 Oct 2012. The bottle had a BBD of Oct 2013. As the name might suggest to you, the beer is golden blonde in colour, on top sat a full white crown of bubbles. It’s glass helps to make it look special in my eyes. The nose is a bit sweeter and grainer than I like: seemed wheaty and sugary even before the first sip and I wasn’t looking forward to trying it. Luckily it wasn’t as sickly and weak as the aroma first indicated: still had a sweet front, but it calmed down mid-sip and got even a little hop bitter and dry towards the end of each mouth full. Can’t say it was great, but it was OK I suppose: not very well balanced, almost dis-jointed in that the flavours didn’t blend or mix. I’ll not be having another by choice.

Daanminator (74) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Heerlijk blondbier van toch wel 7%. Wel veel koolzuur wat het voor mij toch wat snel gaat tegenstaan. Deze drink je niet de hele avond maar meer als tussendoortje.

I tried this before and loved it, now i find it a bit thin. Needs a better alcohol burn to be true worldclass but nonetheless a refreshing sup

Jonb5 (343) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle, poured into over sized tulip. A: Golden colour, clear, one finger head, faded quickly, some lacing. S: Yeast, esters, fruit. T: Surprisingly thin for a 7% beer, had slight hints of yeast, wheat, fruit, diacetyl, but pretty bland. M: Minimal carbonation, thick body. O: Not great, a lesser version of the standard common Belgian Blonde.
