We made gold-fair, clear degustatiebier of 7,7°. it is of barley malt, leaven, water and of course Poperingse hops composed. What concerns the taste, is the first what the presence of a large hop bitterness is notable.

Bottlle. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Clear golden body. Mild sweet honeylike aroma. High amount of carbonation, relatively acidic and bitter sweet malty flavor with a long aftertaste.

thewolf (12027) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle, bought @ EG.
Pours a nice, clear golden with a big, creamy, white head. Mild aroma with some fresh fruit, light pineapple, green apples, some lemons and fairly crispy malts. Highish carbonation, frothy and fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit limited, quite fruity with some yeasty esters and a fair malty base. A bit of oranges and green apples. Okay, even if it is quite uninteresting.

Alright golden blond ale that’s refreshing and quite hoppy. Odd label, though.

Bottle from Beer Temple. Gold orange body with medium head. Nose of citrus and spices. Taste fruity, caramel but quite spicy too. Bitter and hoppy in the warming finish. Pretty good.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is tart apples, wheat and some grassy hops. The flavor is grain, wheat, grass and apples. There is a little bit of tartness in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, nothing spectacular.

erickok (5289) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2010
Golden, clear and white head. Aroma is only slightly more interesting with mostly light hops and some yeast and leaves. A pleasant crisp bitterness saves this, as well as its drinkability. Accessible beer but nothing special. (Bought at Poperinge)

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Clear yellow gold color with some foamy white notes. Aroma is grainy and yeasty. Fair amount of bread with some funk. Flavor is dry bread with a big dry bitter finish.
