MrHangover (2725) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light golden colour, white head. Aroma is a bit sour, breadyness and yeasty. Typical Belgian Ale-ish, and so is the flavour. Medium btiter with sour, doughy flavours. Really nothing special going on here, just a decent, regular blonde Belgian ale.

Is it possible to get the aroma of burned toast in a beer? If the answer is yes this would be the first one. Not burned black, but a nice dark brown burn. Its a beer that mostly cleans the palate. Its not bad but hasnt got any very distinguishable flavors. Bottle from De Bierwinkel in Leiden.

Brandman (2130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Hazy yellow body, white head. Very intense blond with sweet malt, sugar and yeast. Slick mouthfeel and some caramelly, noble hoppy finish.

erickok (3790) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 8, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2012 Classic Belgian blond, clear looks with chalky white head. Some apple, herbs and hay but not much to the aroma overall. Body is somewhat prickly and watery. Taste is nice through, well balanced light bitterness. Okay aftertaste. Maybe time for a revision of this blonde, because the brewer showed he is very capable with his newer beers. (33cl bottle)

rosenbergh (7353) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Draught at North End, Leiden, the Netherlands.
Cloudy golden colour with small white head. Sweet caramel, dryish fruitiness and mild grass in aroma. Some fruity bitterness and sweet caramel in flavour. Surprisingly tasty.
