Dorata, limpida, con una schiuma bianca, abbondante e persistente. Aroma leggero, speziato e erbaceo. Al gusto attacco dolce, ben supportato da una discreta acidità. Finale secco, amaro.

Een goed blond bier dat met zijn smaak boven de middelmaat uitkomt. Een leuke verrassing

EddyBeer1 (864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2014
Blonde dorée claire, effervescence moyenne-légère, col blanc très fin. Principalement maltée, assez fade, mini amertume, plutôt sèche, aqueuse et d’un ennui total!

Yellow golden colour, medium carbonation. Thin body. Sweet malty aroma with light bitter finish. Beer without character.

Lekker bier in een prachtig glas. Kasseien op de voet en een fietser op de overzijde van het glas. Aroma is niet aanlokkelijk, hoppig en gist. Smaak echter heel aangenaam. Zacht bier zoet, zachter maar vergelijkbaar met Tripel bieren. Volle afdronk. Heerlijk sprankelend en verfrissend mond gevoel. Een aangenaam bier dat in vele situaties te serveren valt!

Trappist1 (440) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2014
Dark gold with full white head. Nose: Malts, Malts, did I say Malts? Grainy, unfresh. Taste: grassy, slightly metallic and earthy, minerals. Sweet finish. Very below average brew.

MaartenRF10 (1580) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Helder oranje goud, kleine witte kraag. Vrij zoete grassige blonde belg met wat kruidige bitterheid in de afdronk. Niet erg interessant.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk on the train to Canterbury. Clear gold very carbonated no head. A little grapey on the aroma. A simple basic yet ok standard continental blond. A little dull and sweet but fine Touch of hop on the finish. Ok

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home from ALBO. BBF 03/06/2015. Pours a sparkling crystal clear golden with an insta-gone head (okay…). Smell is quite grainy in a way that reminds me of a pale lager, it has this very nasty apple thing going on, like soap / cardboard / plastic apple or something, I don’t like it, some profile that reminds me once again of a pale lager,… Taste is somewhat sweet, nasty pale lager synthetic grains, once again that very unpleasant chemical waste apple taste, pale malts, weakly synthetic, plastic notes, slight floral / grass hop bitterness in the back, overall it has this weak, almost watery texture to it, it is not watery enough to ignore the taste just weak enough that the unpleasant taste feels very heavily and you can be bothered as well but its almost watery nature aka the worst of both world. This is fizzy as well. Ranks below most pale lager & as one of the worst non-infected Belgian beers I have ever had. It is shockingly bad.
