Plain Bellgian blond beer. Has the typical Belgian traits, but is too watery.

Excalibur123 (263) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Color amarillo pálido. Buena cabeza de espuma blanca que se mantiene; aromas sutiles a levadura, pan, herbales y leve fruta cítrica, en boca entrada suave con cuerpo ligero y bastante carbonatada, amargor equilibrado, al principio no parece que tenga ocho grados pero luego se acaban notando, cerveza aceptable pero sin matices complejos.

StoutHead (852) - DENMARK - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours yellow with a medium sized white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. Taste is unremarkable and of malt and fruits with many citrus notes. Aftertaste is a bit hoppy. Doesn’t feel like 8%. Easily drinkable but a bit boring.

Slightly hazy yellow towards white appearance with decent head. Malty and fruity aroma, quite sweet. Very satisfying Belgian strong ale with some witbier notes.
