3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brügge.
Pours muddy yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, some slight green apples, bubblegum yeastiness and a fair dose of sweet malts. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour starts a bit weak, but as it warms up, there is far more maltiness (even than in a normal Blonde) as well as a fine hoppy dryness and soft, lightly tart apple peel. Okay.

l’intensità olfattiva molto tenue rende difficile la descrizione degli aromi, al palato è piuttosto sbilanciata verso l’amaro.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy yellowish golden colour with huge fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is big time tropical fruits, nectar, some mild acidicness as well as earth. Flavour is quite yeasty, honey, fruits, earth and some grassy bitterness coming in the finish. Kind of Blonde meets Saison. Rich carbonation, but very smooth while drinking.

Bottle, 75cl. Hazy golden color with a large white head. Aroma sour, bit pilsener like, and malts. Medium body. Taste a bit sweetness (little honey ?), semi-dry, malts, fruity, low bitterness. A very good, normal blonde.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Chez Moeder Lambic. Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a respectable white head. Nose full of wet grains, slightly farmy, with some lemon notes. Flavor is light, bready, green and lemony, with a faintly bitter backtaste. Finishes fairly clean with tinges of green hop and lemon. Maybe a little thin but not watery. A nice summer refresher of a blonde with no obvious spicing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Lightly spicy and mustardy nose. Medium bodied with clean, crisp mouthfeel, citric and marmelady, notes of peaches. Dryish fruity finish. All flavours remain rather discrete though, giving it a laid back attitude.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 0,75 ltr (BB 09/2008).
Hazy orange color, small but steady white head, some lace. Earthy, mouldy, peppery aroma - similar to some Fantomes. Very earthy, peppery and citrusy. Long peppery aftertaste. I am not sure if so dominant earthyness is intended. This is maybe more like a saison than just "a Belgian Ale".
