3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at ’t Pothuiske, Maastricht, 20130606) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and metallicness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, Belgian style yeast, grass, metallicness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. I suppose the metal I sensed came from the hops used and those scents and flavours weren’t mathcing with the rest of the beer. Othewise good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl, Mitra Nijmegen, at a friend’s place. Aroma is fruity with notably peach and apricot. Taste is sweet and malty, but not sticky or heavy. Grassy, light hops. Refreshing with only bits of citrus without hints of washing-up liquid This was unexpected: it tastes of weizen! Tiny, tiny bit of metallic aftertaste. Lots of carbonation, a little less than Karmeliet. One of the better blondes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden beer with a not very big white head. Smells a bit like white wine. Fruity. Pretty sweet taste. But not to sweet. Palate is ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours clear light golden with a large creamy white, very good retention and strong lacing. very yeasty and spicy, peach and orange marmelade - de dolle- feeling, bready malts, thin but decent fruitiness, candi golden sugar, noble hops, hint of acidity and few cardboard notes. bright carbonation, light body - a tad watery, decent grassy-citrusy-spicy finish. minor flaws but i enjoyed it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful clear copper-red colour with nice head.
Bready citric mandarin peach smell with hints of spices, cardamom and white pepper. Quite subtle. Rotten fruit.
Fresh watery taste with a dry bitter-sour finish. Bit too light for my taste but with a nice fizziness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Mitra.nl. Clear golden with a big white head. Somewhat sweet cheesy aroma with some fruits. Semi bitter taste with a lot of yeast. Overall not bad but not really good either. I’ve had worse and also much better blondes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from 330ml bottle bought in Utrecht. Has a fruity aroma. Golden color and a white head, highly carbonated. Taste is a little sweet and there is no bitterness. Taste of fruits, oranges and some berries. Overall this beer is not bad, but not the best in the series from Floreffe.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV is 6.3%
Pours a deep orange colour beer, with some light activity in the body, bubbles are rising lazy but on a steady stream to the surface. Nice head, white in colour and soapy in texture, a bit more than two fingers tall. Good retention and nice rings of lace left around the glass.
Aroma is yeasty, in fact too yeasty. Behind all that, some light fruity aroma, but difficult to tell exactly what. Some faint sugars smell as well.
Taste is not any better. Lots of yeast here too, overpowering almost any other element on the flavour. Light malt character and some thin fruit notes, that are not allowed to shine.
Medium thin on the body, with carbonation being average to high.
Overall, quite mediocre.
