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

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - DEC 4, 2012
Naso sottile, fresco e ben luppolata. Colore giallo chiaro, tipico di una blonde. Al palato, la birra appare rotonda e alle volte secca.

Swaroga (1116) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2012
75cl bottle. Hazy yellow/orange liquid with medium thick white head. Nose : wet laundry soap with citrus freshness. Straw and grains and little tart like malts. Sip : Decent carbonation with low density body and creamy texture. Little sweet tart like flavor with strong citrus aromas. Bitter citrus zest notes in the aftertaste. Good balance. Drinkable beer. Well done ! Extra points for being my kind of beer.

As ’Blonde’. Cloudy gold beer. Little white head. Rustic orangey nose. Soft but very dry palate. Sourish beer. Bretty malt with a little tangy orange. Nice flavour but the palate is ridiculously dry. Not a scrap of moisture left in me gob. Hate it when brewers do this!

Blond, hazy body with a white rocky head. Fresh aroma of citrus, bit caramel. Moderately bitter, refreshing flavour. Ok balance. Heavily carbonated.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2012
Draft @ Delirium. Dorée/blonde, col blanc épais. Arôme est houblonné, fruité avec notes agrumes, garde néanmoins ce profile belge avec une présence de levure, nez fleuri. En bouche, blonde agréable bénéficiant d’un bon ajout des houblons, reconnait ce profile sec/citron et amer du Golding avec Pioneer qui donne bien en amertume. Note fleurie et citronnée, palais est sec avec sur la fin une pointe de houblon épicé. Ma préférence reste tout de même pour les séries limitées de Simcoe Lager qui est un vrai régal. Les nouvelles bières sont aussi nettement supérieures aux versions antérieures et donc à revisiter.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Draft. Very pale yellow, scant head and lacing. Aroma of dilute lemonade. Taste is sour licorice, lemon peel. Meh.

altonbrownd (4618) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2011
On tap at Luxembourg festival in Brussels. Gold body with small head. Sour and wheaty nose. Taste is also quite spicy with oranges and fruits. Sweet falvour of vanilla and fruits. Good one.

Giuro che fatico a ricordarla, ma da quel che ho segnato mi era piaciuta. Amen, da riprovare

Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Hazy yellow color, white head. Smell sweet but not too much and fruits. Taste malts, little sweet, fruits and nicely bitter. Medium body and carbo.
