Een deftig blond biertje. Niet het beste wat op de markt is, maar zeker ook niet het slechtste.

Tap, @ Velootje, Ghent. Golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity aroma of banana and some spices. Medium body. Ok beer.

larsga (6184) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Medium offwhite head. Clear yellow body. Spicy metallic strawy aroma with waxy notes. Dryish mealy watery taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel, slightly sharp. Dryish spicy herbal aftertaste with boiled water and fruit notes. Nice, drinkable, not a standout. (0.33l draft at Heeren van Liedekercke.)

bonkiedeaap (251) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a golden color and a large white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma are tones noticable of malts and flowers and there is also a bitterness noticable from the spices. The taste is light sweet and light bitter at the same time and the taste is a little malty. The finish is very dry and also has a sharp bitterness which reminds me of grapefruits. A pretty standard ale but well drinkable.

Light sour and sweet at the same time blond beer. Unfortunately difficult to get. Nice but not perfect.

paulvanpelt (332) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
Gelig en lucht nevelig bier met een strakke witte schuimkraag. Aroma is zurig, aards. Licht bitter, zeer licht zuur. Niet bijzonder. Saai.

Small white head. Dark gold, transparent. Light body. Fruity and yeasty. Balanced and rather light. Average for the style. Could drink more than one.

erickok (3512) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Simple body with an off white head. Light grainy, sweet body, cheesy yet fine yeast and not very pleasant or expressive even. Boring taste, light malty sweetness of cheap bread. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

McWorta (578) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 27, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Offers a dark yellow golden colour with a frothy white head and good lacing. Noses of light citrus fruits, floral, wet grass and flowers. Lightly fizzy on the palate and a medium body showing a slick texture. The finish is light fizzy and pleasantly lasting. Offering some hints grapefruit dryness at the back of the palate. Good equilibrium in aromas.
