GoufCustom (874) - HONG KONG - APR 28, 2013


330ml bottle bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Clear piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and white foam which last for about 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with lively carbonation; Strong aroma of malt, grapefruit, bread, light wet cardboard and light floral; Light, sweet taste of strong malt, bread, orange, coriander, light wet cardboard, very light chalk dust, lemon, light citrus and faint grass; Medium body, pretty oily palate; Taste profile is dominated by strong bready malt with a slap of witbier-like orange and coriander, all wrapped under a fairly light but conspicuous cardboard / chalky background; Hoppiness is good floral smell, fairly weak citrus taste, and almost non-existant bitterness. Finish is all bready malt; Dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Taste a bit like the Echigo Blonde but with full-on bready maltiness, plus Belgian White herbal elements mixed in for good measure. Bold but overstated and undone by the wet cardboard, it’s worth trying if you are curious in exploring the spectrum of Blond Ale, but nothing more.
