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

bierkoning (10210) - 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.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2004
Hazy, deep golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Diminishes to a small, lasting, creamy head with ink-blot lacework. The nose is of fuzzy fruit, pear and orange peel. Well-balanced flavor with a bit of toffee, apricot and pear thrown in, but a touch bland. Full-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, lightly sweet and then bone-dry finish.

Benzai (8234) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2011
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.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2006
Slightly hazy orange-gold beer with peach shine; good off-white head, rather stable. White candi sugar, citrus, both pale and coloured malts in the nose. Toasted taste, quite sweet, bit of caramel or even toffee, and a pinch of citrus. Retronasal even licorice and a bit of almonds. Quite light bodied, not very highly attenuated. Bit fizzy - or is that the temperature it was served at? Not very high-brow, not much going on in there, with a malt sweetness that is way too marked, making it not very finely balanced.

Quack-Duck (7919) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2013
bottle, donated by jaghana! Golden colour, mid-sized white head. Solid malty base with nice floral-grassy hops. A good one.

rosenbergh (6838) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB F/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy ambery golden colour with a tiny white head. Mild yeast, sweet malt and some hops in the aroma. The flavour is mildly bitter floral hops, yeast and dryish malt. Very drinkable. Bitterness in the shortish aftertaste.

sebletitje (6700) - 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.
