3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light malt and yeast aroma, no fruit here. Flavor is light and mild with some citrus sourness. Amber and a thick head. A lighter beer that is kind of refreshing. Not as intense as the 8 or 10.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from dove. Amber with dense white head. Sort of regal appearance, but I think it’s down to the glass. Metallic aroma with a touch of sweet clementine and grass. Taste of spice, hops and fruit. Every so slightly salty and bitter. Nice with my dinner.

Bottle, Chesters, Worcester, 03-03-07. Poured deep golden colour with slight haziness to it some yeastiness apparent on the nose, tasted stronger than the abv suggested. Quite a punchy tasting beer, with malt and spiciness very much in evidence. Pretty decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is a slightly astringent lemon, with yeast and caramel too. Flavour is much the same, far too astringent... feels like it sat too long on the yeast. Diacetyl comes through in an otherwise clean finish. This beer seems a little "all over the place", but its still drinkable.

Bottle at home. Orangy colour. Another fantastic Maredsous. Punchy nose. Limey flavour. Smooth kick. Subtle but definitive. Very good. Enjoying it.

On draught. I really enjoyed my half pint of this. A nice malty ale with hints of honey sweetness. Some apples in there. Light, fresh tasting and easy to drink. Lovely golden hue. Has a long dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Certainly looks the part. Vivid bronze pour topped generously with rocky white suds. Candyish-metallic vapours, not to mention a pronounced woodiness. Smells like it’s been around. Superbly dry, aromatically boozy
’Blonde’ with a fine malt-hop balance. Sour, bitter and bready. A quenchingly dry finish backed up with some candyish, breadily malty afters. Complex and moreishly drinkable for a Belgian Blonde, considering how many are drenched with coriander sweetness.
