COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mariage d’un houblon anglais et allemand, elle dégage un nez subtil, frais et bien houblonné. Sa robe blond-or délicate révèle son caractère simple et sobre. En bouche, la bière sèche et ronde à la fois, permet un équilibre gustatif qui la rend très accessible. Servie fraiche dans son verre tulipe, elle désaltère et laisse échapper du col le meilleur de son parfum.

Style : Bière blonde
Couleur : Blond or
Houblons : Brewers Gold, Pioneer
Température de service : 6-8°C
Verre : verre tulipe de la brasserie

MrHangover (3107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy blonde beer with a medium sized white head on top, Aroma is bready, yeasty, fruity and malty. Typical Belgian aroma to it. Flavor is basically the same, medium sweet, slight bitterness and not much else to it actually. Another average Belgian Ale, with nothing new to add to the style. Meh
