3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden clour with a thin white head, the aroma is slightly sweet and dusty/citrussy. Flavour follows the same but with a slightly harsh finish....not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (@ Leon de Belge, Essen): Fruity (citousy) nose with a distinctive touch of yeast; hazy, golden coloured, small white head, quite stable; mild, sweetish-fruity flavour; short, a bit hoppy, but mainly fruity, yeasty finish. Unspectacular ale, quite well drinkable....

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized foamy head. Barnyardish aroma with caramelly hints. Flavour almost the same. Boring beer with no surprises. Prefer the brune....

(bottle) Hazy pale golden coloured hue with yeast floaties and a mid sized white foamy head. Dusty and moderately sweet wheat-malty nose with a dense citrus note. Light sweet malty taste with light citrus notes, medium bodied, crispy mouthfeel; dry and fruity finish blended with a touch of hoppy bitterness. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 2005. Stronger than a standard pilsener but apart from that flavor and taste does not differ much. White quickly disappearing head, golden body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice yellow golden color, clear, not so foamy head it disappears quickly. Smell of hopps and sweet malts. First taste impression is sweetish at first but than the bitters fill in the aftertaste. Nice and pleasant alternative to Leffe Blond.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sessionable Belgian blonde, highly drinkable but not especially memorable. Poured a syrupy gold with a tall, aerated and noisy head that frothed and bubbled as it settled. Strong, fairly alcoholic aroma of dusty hops. Hint of bubblegum and citrus, but overall a little short on distinction. Quite grabby carbonation at first sip - fairly fizzles at the front of the mouth. Medium-bodied. Subtle flavour profile - lemon tartness with melon fruitiness. Short alcoholic bite and some spice in the finish. An easy quaffer for its 6.3% abv. (33cl bottle, IBS, Perth, bb 24/10/06)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent, easy drinking quaffer and the smaller, friendlier brother of the Brune. Tasted from the bottle into a chalice, quite cool. Hazy, yellow-gold body with fine particles of yeast caught in suspension. Well conditioned, fine carbonation rose to a short, tight white crown of foam that was mainly lasting and left some legs. Enticing, but typical, sweet, juicy melonous, cantaloupe and honeydew, nose with some lemon citrus zing and a lot of candi. Quite light in the mouth, spritzy carbonation cold seems to smooth out as it warms. Hints of vanilla and candi upfront for sweetness before becoming oh so lightly tart mid-palate with hints of peaches and apricots with some cantaloupe mixed in. Short in the finish with some herbal notes just before the swallow. Quite fruity, but delicate and sessionable. Cold, you could down it in quick succession like a pale lager; cool, you could afford to sit on it for a quiet moment. Not bad!!! (33cL, Morley Liquor Merchants, 07/12/06)
