Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée, légèrement aqueuse, notes d’acétone, fade, légère amertume. Haacht is blurp!

Grzesiek79 (4030) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Troszke slabienkie to piwo, owszem ma ladna i trwala pianke, zabawna etykiete oraz zapach morelowy. Nie jest metne co wole, zlociste niczym pilsner. Ale w smaku za slodkie, zgaga przy szybszym piciu murowana, Alkohol nie do konca ukryty. Zdecydowanie za slodkie, brak tu kontry chmielowej

LeFaune (39) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2014
Discreet alcohol and sugar aroma, quite delicate. Apparence is common, without much bubbles nor foam, golden. Taste a bit salty, very balanced. Very light palate, a bit fizzy, numbing. A strong one, you know it from the start, but a solid one.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
"Bière blonde des Flandres" made for the French market and since years brewed by Haacht. Snow white, creamy, medium thick, sticky head, very pale golden blond colour, clear with calm sparkling. Aroma has DMS (cooked vegetable) apart from grass, dough, cloves, minerals, green apple, apple peel and some ’wet dog’. Rounded, soft palate, sweet to the point where it almost becomes sugary, apple, fresh and light, grassy hop bitterishness in the finish with somewhat astringent, gin-like alcohol. Straightforward and clearly Duvel-inspired, but not at all of the same level.

Can from Carrefour, Nice. Ordinary lager tasting beer, golden with no head. Slightly strong but just about palatable.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from a French supermarket. Pours golden with a white head. The taste is pretty lagery but fuller flavoured. Spice and syrup. OK.

Pils kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Veel CO2. Smaak erg zoet ( te zoet) gedronken in Frankrijk
