3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Way better than I thought it would be. Much more complex than I would have thought for something owned by AB InBev.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium, golden with nice carbonation and an average, somewhat rocky, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma contained moderate, light bread, pale malt and cracker; moderate spicy and fruity yeast; grape; pear; white wine; honey; and apricot. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly sour, moderately acidic and lightly bitter with an average duration. There was pale malts, cracker, spicy yeast, slight hops, fruity yeast, a little citrus, perfume hops, white wine, grape, pear, apricot. The light to medium body was sort of syrupy and then dry with very fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For a blond, it’s solid and very drinkable on a warm spring day; however, it is certainly nothing over the top amazing. Aroma is sweet, bread, very faint spice. The taste is a little more interesting with some faint clove notes, faint banana, and lots of yeast and bread. The sweetness is very sticky on the palate and the finish is fizzy--just where you’d expect it from a Belgian.

Light, soft and fruity. Perfect with a meal. Without large claims it is perfect to accompany a meal.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Very sweet without hoppy feeling. It had some sharp, waspy taste from the yeast or alcohol. You can feel some pale fruity taste also. Foam is thick and fine, colour and Co2, body is OK. Not a big choice.

Not terrible. Has a bit of a strong yeast taste, like the Belgian that it is. Not great, but not terrible.

Great beer. Beutiful, sweet aroma, corresponding with the sweetness of the malts in flavour. Very, very drinkable.
