A very wheaty aroma, too much so for me. That said, this has a great flavor to it. Some spices, a light hop, but quite smooth. Realy fantastic.

Bavik va devoir nous expliquer la stratégie d’une blonde à 6,6 %abv suivie d’une triple à 7,5 %abv !!! En ce qui me concerne, cette nuance des 9 dizièmes de différence me laisse assez perplexe... Cette blonde est pourtant d’un joli blond d’or avec un pétillant très fin et une mousse qui nappe correctement. Mon exemplaire a dépassé sa date d’une bonne année, et présente des arômes de fruits blancs confits, ananas, compote de pommes et … péket. Une bière jeune sera sur des arômes de blés d’été. La 1ère bouche est sur le fruit confit (versus un fruité pomme/poire pour une jeune). La 2ème est d’épices, poivre et herbes. La 3ème revient au genièvre avec une surprenante vraisemblance (pour de la pomme verte et du houblon chez une jeune). La levure est curieusement passée aux épices aussi (alors qu’elle tire au pale ale jeune). La longueur est correcte. La finale honnête pour une blonde. Donc une bière qu’il est amusant de tester âgée pour ses saveurs originales qui la font rejoindre une bière spéciale... Mais Bavik a aussi une spéciale, qui elle est à 5,5 %abv... Que de mathématique dans cette brasserie... On cotera nous par sympathie à 4,4 ...

This is an overall nice light beer. It had a golden peach color, nice head and a nice light slightly sweet honey taste

Poured a cloudy orange with a good bit of carbonation and a nice head. The beer smelled fruity, with a strong citrus/orange presence. The beer was flavorful and fruity with some spicy, earthy notes. There is just a small hop presence that balances out the fruitiness. The beer has a champagne quality to it in its carbonation and flavor. Excellent.

Taste is mostly sweet with some yeast and slight bitterness that sticks around in the aftertaste. There’s a little of the alcohol that comes through. Overall an enjoyable beer.

33 cL Bottle. Cantelope and candied lemon. Faint malt. Clouded gold and pale amber pour, with smooth soapy fringe. Flavor is a rich tawny creamed malt and a bit of raisins and acerbic airy flower of sweet sugars. Satisfying flavors and awesome attenuation create a rising percolation that pushes stellar drinkability to the edge. A bit of phenols and warmth. Suprised by some glowing caramels in a nice crips Belgian blond. A bit of biological dryness and styrian crispness creates a flavorful finish. Excellent for the style.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden brown with some white head. Nose is pretty mild actually. Slightly hoppy with a little bit of a sweet edge. A touch of yeast. A touch of what might be described as a light floral perfume. Flavor is actually nice and full. Has a slight sweet edge to it that has a citric tone. I am actually surprised a bit. I didn’t expect it to be so full and even. It does have a bit of a syrupy tone to it, though it is not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is pretty good. Slight edge of carbonation. Very drinkable. I could down these all night and right now I am wishing I had more to be able to do just that. This is the first out of the Petrus 6-pack I picked up. It’s a good start.

Smell is belgian yeast strain, pilsner malt with honey notes. Appearance has a very thin head, color is hazy golden. Head dissipates quickly. Taste is pilsner malt flavor, some belgian notes in there and some sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Refreshing and surprisingly good. Some residual sweetness which fades into a dry aftertaste. Excellent beer but overpriced. Enjoyability 5/5.
