3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a large cloudy white head of substantial longevity. Nose is classical sweet estery Belgian yeast tones with clove, banana and white-sugary bubble gum as most prominent. Taste is similar, with banana, clove, pale malts, sugar and hints of honey and heather flowers. Medium body, near-fizzy carbonation. Pleasant enough, and reminiscent more of a tripel (albeit with less alco-punch) than a regular blonde.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl from 6bottle sampler bought @Brugge BF 2013. - Lightish Belgian blonde ale with a dry palate, moderate natural hop bitterness, almost Weissbier fruit aromas (citrus, banana) (alas partly due to added sugars) and emblematic Belgian yeast working overtime, providing layered spice aromas. Enjoyable if little exciting, apart maybe the anathemic Weizen crossover notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, peppery and somewhat metallic. Flavor is dry, spicy, slightly bitter. Huge carbonation and decent body. Nice dry flavor with a full body, only lacks a little in power. Well drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Cloudy golden/orange with medium, snowy white head. Nose : tart, fruit cake, banana, red cherry, apricot. Sip : moderate carbonation that foams in the throat. Creamy texture. Sweet grains start with fruity background. Gets dry and metallic. It uncovers more sweet tart and more esters. Ending with flower and bitter/dry aftertaste. Seams a bit complex but out of balance. The mouthful feeling isn't a good thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy amber with a thick white frothy head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is rich, yeasty and fruity. The flavour is medium bitter with citrus notes and loads of Belgian yeast. There is no doubting its heritage, which I have to say is becoming a little tiring.
