3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy and thick white head. A light, dusty malt smell, biscuity, then a tropical fruit hop aroma with a hint of spice. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt taste to start, but this is only brief, it is soon taken over by a tangy tropical fruit hop flavour, with pineapple, banana and citrusy grapefruit and lemon. There is a hint of clove and cinnamon spice, reminiscent of a wheat beer. The finish is long, tangy fruit along with the spices.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Den Haag. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is strong yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a sharp crisp yeast light alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very Belgian with that signature yeast. Nice enough but it’s yesterday’s beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Drinking date: 10 March 2014) Clear golden coloured beer with a big layer of foam which disappears quickly. Nice fresh aroma of yeast and fruit, and unfortunately a bit of metal. Nice hoppy bitterness in the taste, but also a bit of that metal taste unfortunately. Also a bit dried fruits in the taste. There is also a bit of a sweetness present. The beer is really refreshing. The mouthfeel is good, and the carbonation just a little bit too much. I enjoyed this beer, but it is not one of the best blonde beers. But it is still good though! That’s why I give it the total score of 3.5
