3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden-orange color with a small, tight and lasting head. Sweetish aroma of caramel, flowery hops, yeast, plus some vegetables and honey. Fruity, lightly spicy, lemony and yeasty, moderately sweet but not nearly cloying flavor. Light to medium-bodied, foamy-carbonated palate. A pleasant, quite balanced, straightforward blond. Not as thin as the bruin, although the body is not very full.

(Bottle 33 cl) Rather unusual "Blond" as the extreme yeast makes this more grey than anything else - nice, rocky head. A bit flat too. Soft, yet spicy but still fresh and pleasant. 300398

Bottle brought back from Belgian. Fairly boring grassy blond, it’s a little sweet and sickly and could do with some more spiciness. Stil reasonable.
