Bière blonde de haute fermentation, mais non refermentée, de 5,2 % abv. Définie par son brasseur comme une « belgian top blond », nous ne voudrions pas le contredire, mais elle est un peu ambrée … et en ce qui concerne le top, nous en reparlerons … Format 50cl (pourquoi ?), mon exemplaire était à 2 mois après sa date limite. Couleur doré un peu ambré, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, par centaines, partout, vives. Mousse blanche, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de caramel, muscade, pointe de cuir (?), malt grillé. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame assez correcte, malt et houblon avec une touche herbeuse. Arrière-bouche un peu épicée, muscade. 2ème à la belle texture, mais le goût est sans vraie valeur. Arrière-bouche un peu plus dense. 3ème aux gentilles nuances, assez fondues, mais sans complexité. Arrière-bouche agréable, mais peu consistante. Longueur et finale n’apporteront rien d’autre. L’alcool est bien pour son niveau, mais il ne contribue à rien dans l’ensemble. CONCLUSION : deuxième non refermentée de Van Honse que je goûte, et qui me paraît bien en-dessous des productions habituelles … Que se passe-t-il dans la tête du brasseur ?? Je veux bien que l’on cherche à associer certaines bières avec des fromages, mais on n’est pas obligé pour la cause de voler au ras des pâquerettes … comme les herbes que mangent les vaches .. Je ne sais pas si vous me suivez, mais les cotes sur ratebeer ont tout à fait l’air de suivre  ...

Aroma is of some brewing sugar, bit fruity and spicy but weak and watery. Taste is again weak, sugar, spicy and fruity, some metallic notes, sometimes cardboard even, grassy light bitterness, bready yeast. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, thin. Not very good...

danielyabu (1491) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 22, 2016
Average frothy white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Clear dark-yellow average-density body. Aroma: metal, clove, dried banana, solvent. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter; average bitter. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, metallic finish, lively carbonation. Drank one month after the expiry date. Well below the Belgian standard (it’s one of the worst Belgian beers I’ve ever had). Yeasty backbone/sweetness. Lacks character. Banana sweetness. 10s

Travlr (19929) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Draft at B Too as their house ale. Clear golden yellow color, white coca cola head. Aroma of papery cereal. Taste is light and lager like. Belga and B Too need to get their beer manager back if this is their house beer.

At a tasting, thanks, small creamy bubbly head, clear deepish yellow color, malty honey slightly musty aroma, honey syrupy flavor with some rubber and yeast, light bitterness and sweetness. Heavy and not too good.
