A beer’s appearance can’t possibly get better. The yeasty deposit on the bottom of the bottle is served on the side in a shot glass. The main course is served in its own glass with a great golden cristal clear (becomes cloudy if you add the yeast deposit) colour and a truly epic foamy head with great retention. Rarely seen something like it. Smells of alcohol with grass and hops. When you taste it, the alcohol is nowhere to be seen, it is completely hidden. Citrus and floral hops roll over your tongue. The bitterness is very very subtle until it develops in the aftertaste. Feels creamy with a hint of yeasty sweet banana. Aftertaste is mostly hoppy bitter and leaves little to be desired. Great. Beer.

La nota Lefebvre produce questa bionda piuttosto alcolica che si segnala per le sue qualità di equilibrio. Dorata con ampia schiuma frizzantina, l’aroma è molto invitante con luppolo e fiori a farla da padrona. Molto interessante al palato con una ottima fusione di dolcezza di malto e frutta e amarezza, relativamente spiccata ma non preponderante, del luppolo, con un tocco di speziato. Abbastanza secca nel finale, invita alla successiva bevuta. Piuttosto evidente l’alcool, elevata la carbonazione. Promossa senza dubbio.

phenolic strong blonde Belgian ale. Some candi sugar, but nothing really that special.

Sdaniel90 (459) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. Clear golden with a tall, frothy offwhite head and nice lacinig. Earthy aroma with hints of citrus zest, basement yeasts, cereal, alcohol esters. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Low sweetness with more of a subtle, but stinging bitterness. Not very aromatic, but hoppiness is there. Somewhat unbalanced, but pleasant and unorthodox.

Draft to taster at Eight Ball. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, Belgian yeast, fruits, banana, hints of citrus, caramel, a light spice, pretty typical Belgian strong character, ok, nothing great.

Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color oro con abbondante schiuma bianca di grande tenuta. Al naso risulta molto fresca con note erbacee, agrumate e fruttate. Al palato inizio molto luppolato che lascia spazio un pó all’alcol con finale agrumato e non secco.
