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.

Pinball (10922) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2013
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.

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
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.

9/III/2012 on tap @ De Heeren van Liedekercke (Denderleeuw) - BB: n/a (2012-223)

Mainly clear light blond beer, huge white head, somewhat adhesive. Aroma: fruity, yeast, some vegetables, hay, grassy. On swivelling the beer around a weird chemical rubbery or plastic smell comes out. MF: soft to no carbon, light body. Taste: faint fruits, some citrus, grains, sugary, in all pretty watery. Aftertaste: more grains, grassy, watery too. Lacks some punch.
