MarcoDL (2061) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
The label looks modern, but the recipe is as old as the Belgian beer culture. Typical yeasty and fruity Belgian blond. Nice, but not special.

Somewhat opaque darker yellow with white foam head. Aroma is strong barley, little wheat. Decent taste, a Belgian Ale worthy, high alcohol. (Kemmel 201407)

Cold 33cL bottle, very hazy yellow appearance, a very sweet aroma and with a sweet taste. This beer has a great body but sadly not a lot of head. Overall a very nice beer.
