paulvanpelt (354) - Reusel, - JAN 2, 2013
Helder goudblond / amberkleurig bier met dichte schuimkraag, waarvan een kleine film overblijft. Aroma van hop, gist en brood met iets zoetigs. Smaak begint bitterzoet maar het bier laat een droog gevoel achter in de mond. Alcohol is merkbaar, maar niet vervelend. Vergelijkbaar met de Blond, maar meer body en complexiteit.

aleigator (309) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Has a reddish, amber color, with a perfect sized, froth head. Aromas are slightly spiced, reminding me instantly of a german Hefeweizen, with bready, dough yeast and banana - altough it tends to be a little bit sweeter. Drinks extremely smooth, due to its soft yeast foundation. Taste is between sweet honeyed malts and peppery spices. The banana from the nose is still there, but perfectly wrapped up by slightly hot spices, vanilla and honey. Has a perfect fitting, lively carbonation with a medium body. Finishes with a toffee, clove spiced sweetness, and some slightly biting peppers.

Amber, fruity aroma, with little lasting foam. Balanced flavor and with marked spicy notes. Not surprisingly, a good example of the style.

Maakun (896) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with medium white head. Lots of cloves and sweet malts, sugary, light spices and light herbal finish. Very sweet. Not that bad but again I'm not a fan of the typical Leffe yeast taste.
