rdb84 (558) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Translucent Pilsner pour, champaign like. Aroma is sweet and slightly murky, resembles Leffe blond a bit. Notes of fresh grass, citrus. Taste is slightly sour with sweet notes, again like Leffe but more watered down. Bitter and dry aftertaste which is a little too dry maybe. Nothing too special, but not that bad either. Could easily drink a couple.

Une blonde douce. Très douce pour ses sept degrés au compteur. Amertume très légère. Pas mauvais, rafraîchissant, mais manque de saveurs vu la catégorie dans laquelle on est censé évoluer.

thirstyrabbit (1742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Sweet and yeasty aroma - the yeasty part is mushroomy and peculiar but in a good way. Very fizzy carbonation. Taste is generic and bland with metallic hops, too bad it’s yet another boring blond ale. The aroma was promising something more.

Cerveza que para mi gusto es un poco floja, me pareció que estaba demasiado carbonatada notandose mucho la presencia de alcohol, pero a rasgos generales es una cerveza pasable

Douce, légèrement amère. Fruitée. Agréable . Légère un peu trop sucrée peut-être... belle couleur

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde, mousse assez présente et effervescence moyenne, petit nez sur les malts et le sucre candy, même attaque en début de bouche puis continuité sur la poire mais bien équilibrée.

bonkiedeaap (635) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is light yellow with a nice white head and a lot of bubbles. A slight spicy and floral fragrance comes towards you. In addition, it has a fruity tone with the sweetness of cherry and caramel after some time. also discover a slight hint of coconut in the background. You can expect a distinctive flavor. Strong bitters using the mouth as a playground, where the carbon dioxide throws some extra oil on the fire. Furthermore, you can taste the fruitiness of green apple and a little citrus.The aftertaste is particularly dry. A slight bitterness is still just above, before it fades.
