3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from beer planet.
gusher. cloudy orange, smooth white to offwhite head.
very fruity aroma, ripe fruity mixed with citrussy notes.wheaty and yeasty notes.
flavor is quite yeasty, a little spicy, dough, fruity notes like apple, alc. burns in the aftertaste - a raw and unbalanced beer. It is past its best before date, and the hops seem to have become dusty. However, i don’t think it would’ve been much better fresh. Very belgian.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle. Clear yellow orange, big white and very quick head. Nose : hay , caramel, citrus fruity , little peach. Sip : Sweet , smooth, little creamy, oily. Low to medium carbonation. Overall it’s a sweet beer with some fruity esters. Fruity notes are dominated by lemon. Nothing special. There are many ways to do the blond beer, this is the most boring one.
