3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured orange color in a hazy, dense body and an off-white head that never disappears. Fruity aroma of citrus, banana mixed with cinnamon and yeast in the nose. Sugary sweetness that mellows out in a slightly hoppy bitterness in the finish. Caramelish aftertaste. No sign of alcohol taste. Nothing special, but a good for the weekday.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a stubby brown 11.2oz bottle into my Westmalle Trappist chalice. The abv is listed as 6% and there is a "Best before" date of 05 2011. The back label also has a short description of the beer.
Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a very slight haze to it. It is also full of visible carbonation racing up to the head. The head is just off white in color and very thick and creamy. It has excellent retention and it maintains a good cap of foam until the end.
Smell: In the nose I get sweet bready and yeasty notes with some light fruity and medicinal estery notes. There is a bit of alcohol as well.
Taste/Palate: The flavor is fruity, estery, sweet and bready with solid herbal bitterness from the hops. Mild fruity notes of peach, red apples skins and pear are suggested on my tongue. The palate is very creamy and smooth but still quite lively from the carbonation.
Notes: It is a very enjoyable Blonde for sure with nice balance of malt and hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Lightly sweet, malty, honeyish aroma, gently herbal and fresh with background notes of doughy bread and spice. Mostly clear light-medium golden-amber color with a lasting, fluffy head and thick sheets of lacing. Flavor profile is fruity, sugary and light, with touches of floral sweetness, lemon and pear, some faint yeast and hop undertones towards the finish. Light, airy, effervescent and gently bitter on the palate, body is medium. Sweetness is kept in balance. This is just a nice, easy drinking Belgian style.
