A delicious beer. Smooth and somewhat sweet, with an outstanding balance of citrus and hops.

During my visits to Belgium I enjoyed this as a good day-to-day beer, with meals or as a refresher. However it was not easy to find and Moortgat never seemed to give it any publicity. I understood that they abandoned it in 2004 and another brewery was looking to make a different beer with the same name. Looking at the Moortgat website today (Sept 05) there is no mention of it and no result from the site search engine. I am sorry that Moortgat never gave this beer a fighting chance as I consider it far superior to their Vedett.

Blond (Deuh...) but not a great characteristic taste. Not very special, a bit desappointing.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Nice head, thin lacing. Bit of a Dortmunder aroma, but nothing of that in flavor. Smooth, a bit dry finish with even some alcohol. Gets worse when warming up. Additional note: Tried an aged sample recently (one year past best before date), which is obviously better than a fresh one. The yeasty flavour is more obvious and some port-notes increase the complexity of the brew. My rating reflects the aged sample, which i prefer (fresh sample at 3.3).

Thick, creamy head. Hoppy, herbal aroma with caramel. Sweetish, hoppy, herbal taste with caramel and citrus. Fairly complex.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2004
Bottle at De Zolder, Bruges. Rather unusual and tasty beer (apparently now defunct, the barman informed me). Coffee cream and caramel hints to this Blond. Bitter malt is predominant on the beginning. Very crisp: delicious.
