3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden with a fluffy white head. Spicy yeast aroma, with undertones of lemon, peach and vanilla. Lightly astringent flavour, with some nice tart citrus notes, also quite bitter and fruity. I should have liked this more, but I couldn’t help feeling that something was missing.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of fluffy pure white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: Dupont yeast with saison notes, apple and pear, light citrus, faint herbal. (9/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, very mild tart and funk. (8/10) Palate: light body, moderate to lively carbonation, dry crisp finish. (4/5)
Seems to bridge the gap between BSPA and saison, to good effect. A very well-behaved classically Belgian ale that is going down a treat after a hard day’s physical labour in the heat and humidity. It’s also worth pointing out what’s not present: the ABV is very restrained, making this near-double-digit ale quite sessionable. (17/20)

Golden amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Sugary nose. Sugary taste. Dry as well. Not the best beer out there, but if someone offered me one I’d see what else they had...

Arancio chiara con ampio cappello di schiuma frizzantina. Aroma fresco erbaceo e floreale. Eccellente bevuta, rinfrescante, note floreali, dolcezza perfetta. Media frizzantezza, ottimo corpo con alcol che sostiene bene la bevuta.

Bottle - pours pale orange with lots of floating yeast. Aroma is sweet malt, Apple, spice and a little citrus. Taste is sweet upfront with a rapid transition to a spicy alcohol finish. Palate is a bit thinner than expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber pour with generous frothy head and a lot of yeast floaties. Peppery phenolic aroma, with cloves, banana esters, candi sugar. The taste has a little bit in common with their iconic saison, in regard to the yeast character; but differs significantly in strength and inclusion of banana, candi sugar and clove flavours. Nice bitter and dry finish. Light bodied and very drinkable. Really good blond.

Hazy golden orange, modest head. A: fresh, intense, wheat aroma with citrus notes, banana, barnyard and saison funk. Hint of metal, some cheese. Nice. T: starts wheaty, with saison like taste, hints of corn bread. Develops a creamy, slightly fruity bitterness with faint marzipan note. Ends with a slightly boozy mouthfeel. Medium to full body. Aftertaste is dry, wheaty. Nice Blonde.

Met 8,5 % relatief zwaar blond bier maar hier proef weinig van terug. Heeft een hele lichte, vlakke smaak met weinig bitterheid. Mist in mijn ogen iets onderscheidends en is te neutraal. Desondanks wel lekker fris voor op een warme dag. Hele gave gouden kleur met mooie schuimkraag.
