2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thick foamy head. Judging only on its looks, it might just be that somebody sneakily added some soap to it, what a bubbles! Aroma is a bit yeasty and hoppy and has hints of alcohol in it. Flavor is a bit watery, but not too much. There is also citrus, hops and some spices. It’s slightly bitter and a bit of alcohol is present, even at 6%. It’s not bad, but I’m not overly impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet yeasty aroma. Foamy white head that disappeared too quick. Hazy gold body. Smooth mellow dry buttery caramel. Not too bubbly which is nice. Spicy with cinnamon aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cl. Pours golden with a decent and endurable white head, that hangs around. With decent lacing too. Good honeyed, citrusy aroma, with hoppy notes. Pleasant on the tongue, with a typical but not unpleasant sharpness. A verry worthy blond.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky dark orange with a small ivory head. Aroma is of apples and pilsener malt, dust. Again with the pilsener malt, slightly hoppy, and green apples reappear. Medium mouthfeel and viscosity, spritzy on the tongue. Overall, good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours, as you would expect, a hazy gold with a foamy white cap.
The aroma is light and sweet, floral, light yeast, citrus, and spice.
The flavour is good, starts with a bit of hop, some bread in the middle, a bit of grain bitterness, then some citrus, ends on a sweet note of bananas which stays in the finish.
And easy drinking Belgian blond ale, nothing to really write home about, but not bad.

ES: inte så påtaglig men finns ändock där

Hazy, tawny brew with modest white head, crisp scnet revealing fruit, but not citrus fruit, and a bit of spice, full flavor, a little sweet, but not too sweet.
