Poured from a 330 ML bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma- Has a very inviting malt and hop aroma that has a sweet smell to it. Appearance- pours a copper color with a small white head. Taste- A fantastic malt flavor that has a floral sweet blend to it. Palate- A medium bodied beer with low carbonation, this is a very smooth beer Overall- One of my favorite beers of all time (Top 50). It has a great flavor and texture and looks killer.

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.

I like it. Great smoothness in taste, very good long-lasting foam. Maybe a little bit soapy in taste, but it is very refreshing. And I also like the bottle as well as label.

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 ...

Cerveja bastante equilibrada, dulçor de malte que equilibra com ésteres frutados e um suave amargor.

The beer looks very nice. The has a golden color. It is a little bit cloudy. The beer pours a lot of soft white foam, of which a lot collapses. A nice amount of foam remains on top of the beer. The beer looks royal, with the bright white foam and the golden color. The smell of the beer is very nice. The first aroma I smelled, right after pouring the beer, was banana. The beer has a delicious sweet fruit aroma, reminding me of a tropical or Mediterranean country. There is also a nice almond flavor. This combines very well with the banana. I also smell the alcohol. The smell has a very nice warming aroma. The beer has a delicious taste. Again, there is this tropical fruit. This results in a delicious sweetness. This sweetness is balanced balanced by a nice bitterness. There is also a nice bittersweet almond aroma ad well. The taste is in perfect balance. Chapeau.

330 ml bottle. Golden look with white large head, natural carbonation. It’s funny, it looks just like if you search "beer" in google, try to imagine the most archetipical golden looking beer. Looks great I must say. Smell is classic full flavour belgium beer, it has sweet caramel, banana, nuts, etc. Good taste, maybe too strong alcohol taste in the ending, but at least a good belgium taste. Great beer for me, and looking forward to try more Petrus.

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