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

MiP (13055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle, 6.5%. OK bready aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is fruity with a good shot of paper. A bit of vegetable in the finish. Sound unpleasant, but is actually just a bit boring.

TBone (11947) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2006
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".

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2007
(750ml bottle, BB 12/08) Pours a cloudy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, floral, and earthiness. Flavor of malt, citrus, and herbal tea.

argo0 (11192) - Washington DC, USA - APR 24, 2004
(WCC2) Hazy golden with medium off-white head. Aroma is light sweet, some spice (cardemom). Taste is light sweet, lemon, cardemom, and the back of the tongue has an additional spice I can't place. Light body, some tartness.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
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.

Christian (10782) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2010
First Snowfall of the Season tasting in Odense. Gusher ith brett notes, possibly not as the brewer intended (possibly more interesting?). Golden beer with floaties, small white head leaving lace. Aroma of bread and biscuit with some citrus and a hint of spicy. Sweet spicy and biscuit-y dlavour, with a herbal touch, and a resinous and brett-like drying and bitter finish.

bierkoning (9836) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2005
Mango and a touch of vinegar in the aroma. Hopbitter flavor with mango, lemon and a touch of vanilla. The first sings of sourness are showing. Hopbitter, a bit oily aftertaste, medium to full bodied. Not too bad, could be much better.
