2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear, a bit pale, golden, with a white head. Grainy nose, with a puke-sour twist, quite sweetish, and with some cellar notes. Too grainy I think, and the sourness is bad, but fortunately quite weak. The flavor has pale malt, grass, grain and hay, and is far from my favorite blond. Medium body. Grainy and hayish finish. Too grainy and not that good. Disppointment of the night. (070809)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle. Pours golden orange with a huge slight creamy head. Malty yet slight spiced aroma, reminds me a bit of a pilsner. Sweet and slight soapy malt flavour - sweet. The sweetness is nicely broken by slight spiced and acidic notes. Caramel flavoured too. Ends floral, slight spiced and a grassy bitter. Somewhat different blonde, doesn’t seem that good at first but wins for every sip I take - nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A blonde ale with a thick white head. Gusheed out of the bottle. Aroma is sweet bubble gum, very fruity and perfumey. In mouth, a good sweet malt with the same fruity esters, notes of maple, and light hopping. Refreshing. Bottle from SAQ.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very average belgian blonde. Best attributes are it’s floral perfumey aroma, and the beautiful burnished gold with pillowy whiteheaded appearance. The falvour is spoiled by unsubtle sweetness, and lack of balance, though there’s a nice lingering bitterness in the finish which redeems it somewhat.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Fresh and moderate yeasty smell with a hint of banana. A cloudy yellow body without any particles. The head is average large and creamy and is fully lasting - nice.
Light sour and astringent flavour but not as strong as the Grimbergen Triple. On the palate the beer has a creamy texture with a medium body and only soft carbonation. Not as nice as the Prima Melior but a good one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, poured more a light amber for me with a large foamy white head. The aroma is yeasty with a subtle fruit aroma. I found the palate to be a little astringent, but creamy and fruity. The levels of hops and bitterness did work well.
