Nice fresh and crispy blonde. Hoppy and sweet at the same time. Dry yet relatively quick finish. A pretty legit blonde. Not my favorite style but a pretty cool one worth trying.

Vignale (2709) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. Gyllengult klar vätska med lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Lätt doft av söta äpplen, apelsinskal, belgisk jäst och honung. Relativt stiltypisk men också lite trist blond. Sötma, en lätt men markerad beska som räddar balansen. smakbilden lite som doften men också med en liten kryddighet. Ok.

Icedwarf (916) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht fris zoetzuur met iets van citrus. Komt wat waterig over. Goed, maar niet echt bijzonder.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2015
33cl bb07/2016. Held up very well for the time spent in the cupboard...Faint golden pour, Belgian ale standard head, faintly fizzy. Manages to stay well drinkable for an underwhelming run-of-the-mill classic recipe: all honey carapils malts and banana peel, mild abv in the nose. Mild citrus marmelade, more banana peel, white sugars and dried grass hops, some pollen, in taste on a fizzy palate. Rather simplistic malt and hop profile. - Anyone introduced to how much flavour traditional UK ales can pack under 5% and appreciative of the narrower bandwith subtleties of German lagers, is bound to find heavier hitting standard Belgian fare like this, taking a larger bite of the liver with no obvious payoff in flavour, pedestrian in the long run.

Prima biertje, springt er wellicht niet heel erg uit maar is een lekker fris blond bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ForlornHope (242) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a polished golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of wet grain, some spicyness and yeast. Taste is sweet, with a nice blance of slight sourness and hop. Lively on the tongue, has some nice sherbety acid and fruityness to balance the sweet malt. Overall, very drinkable indeed.
