3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Clear orange blond, fading white head. Aroma of yeast, bread, hay, herbs and orange fruit. Taste is yeast, orange fruit, malt and something artificial and some alcohol. Quite sweet but with some hop bitterness. Ok beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden, clear but a light haze visible, small - nevertheless persistent - creamy off-white head, orangey-fruity nose, some grainy tartness in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and relatively soft; a slight alcohol-burn shows up in the sweet and bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this archetypal belgian Blond...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
30cl Bottle: best before Apr 2013, poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged tulip @ home on 7th Nov 2012.
Nice looking beer: light amber body that is clear and bright, on top a full, deep foaming head which although shrinks, does try and hang around for a while.
Malty nose of sweet molasses, some yeast notes too.
This is a fairly sweet Blonde and she knows it: biscuity, shortbready malts with a summer orchard of fruitiness along with the blossom. I prefer this sort of beer to the sour or bitter types and this Dutch Blonde and I would get along just fine at any time of the year, any where in the world.

Uit de fles. Goudkleurig, snelverdwijnende kraag. Aroma en smaak van sinaasappel. Behoorlijk zoet. Wel ok , niks speciaals.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden almost clear, creamy white head. Apple, yeast, Belgian feel to this. Prickly body, smooth. Sweet start, light bitter middle. Uninspiring. (33cl bottle, cheap)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 Aroma met banaan en sinaasappel, subtiel en soms wat verloren. Smaak is ook duidelijk fruit, met banaan en appel. Ook wat kruidiger, zelfs wat peper die doorloopt in de afdronk. #2 van de tap @ CafeBLVD Venlo, zelfde rating.
