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

sebletitje (9032) - 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.

Hansen (8333) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2013
Yellow coloured and hazy. Has a white head, fully lasting. Heavy hoppy and yeasty aroma, harbal and a bit sharp. Bitter flavor, more herbal notes. Dry, light astringent texture, lively carbonation.

Svesse (7724) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
(Bottle, Brasserie Lombard, Brussels, 22 Oct 2014) Dark golden colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, malty nose with bread, grass, citrus and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bread, peaches, grainy malt and a grassy bitterness in a dry finish with a touch of lemon. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

77ships (7432) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2013
75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. Thx! to Ansjelaah. Big surprised that I h ave never had this one actually. Pours hazy amber, creamy white bubbles for a head. Nose is slightly chemical hops, bitter earthly malts with some sugar & sweeter malts. Taste is touch watery hops, sweet caramel, fruity, touch grapefruit with a nice earthly touch, sweet yeast & bitter herbs. Body is creamy but also slightly watery. Not bad but not zenith either. Not exciting but decent within the style.

Bottle bought in Brussels, October 2014. A bit hazy golden/light brownish with a small head. Sweet with malt, "candy", some dried fruit and yeast. The bitterness was light. Not my kind of beer.

Borresteijn (6282) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
75cl Bottle at RBESG’13 Grand Tasting. Pale amber colour, white head. Aroma is a bit sweet, amber malts, light floral. Flavour is sweet, amber malts, floral, light bitter earthy finish that saves the beer imo. Light-bodied, quite boring.
