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.

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.
