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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium white head which changes quick into a vast and closed white lacing and after a while it leaves a small white island on top of a clear (yellow) orange colored beer.
Smell lot of yeasty fruit, green apple, some sharper tangerine and orange, stingy grains and hay.
Taste sweet grains, fruit, apple, abricot, malts, soap, some sweets, a growing but still medium bitterness, yeast, slight hint of herby hops and something light sharp stingy and light glue a like.
Spicy grainy yeasty fruity bitter aftertaste.
Medium carbo, soft and spicy mouthfeel, meium body and a light watery/creamy texture.
Another one of the many yeasty and bit unbalanced beers.
