De naam is uiteraard ontleend aan de vestigingsplaats van de brouwerij Kessel-lo. Kessel Blond is een strogeel bier van 7,5 vol.% alc., met een dikke sluier en een wandklevende witte schuimkraag. In de neus is het fris, met hop, appels en citrus. Na een neutrale smaakaanzet komt een tintelende fruitigheid, een toets van honing en een licht hoppige afdronk.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
De Vlier’s first, since 2008. Snow white, creamy head, pale golden blonde colour with greenish hue, clear. Aroma of apple, vanilla, lemon peel, white bread, young cheese. Soft apple-like onset with subtle citrus for refreshing effect, quite strong carbonation, cheesy and light malty, honey touch, light floral hops in the finish. Elegant session beer.

Very pale blond colour. Light citrus in the aroma. Very weak flavour. A bit grassy, some yeast. Rather bland.

Borresteijn (5068) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
75cl at WWT III. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of pale malts, light floral, a bit sweet. Flavour is sweet, fruity, banana, yeast, light bitter alcoholic finish. Light-bodied. Standard Belgian ale imo, Golden ales don’t use Belgian yeast afaik.

MrHangover (2952) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ WWT III courtesy of Benzai. Pours a hazy pale golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is somehow a bit skunky, with some spicey, spruce notes to it. Flavour is quite regular, bland Belgianny. Medium sweet, medium bitter.. meh. Not impressing

Bottle at WWT3. Poured a cloudy light straw with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak yeast and malt. The flavour is weak bitter with a little malt on the watery palate. Not much else really. Not a classic, but not the worst blond either.
