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

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottled, 0.75l) Very hazy golden color with a largeish head. Slightly sour, buttery, cellary, Czech-pilsenery aroma. Quite ashy, smoky flavor with some grapefruit - not very complex. Medium-bodied, semi-dry, low-carbonated palate. A very decent, smoky blonde. Interesting.

Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing Ansjelaah: Some off white bubbles on top of a hazy orange colored beer.

77ships (4134) - 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.

jaghana (4017) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - APR 4, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper beer with good head. Nose is on grapefruit. Aroma is very day, just bitter with intense grapefruit notes, no malt, very boring and astringent.

dEnk (3831) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle @ RBESG. Faint flowery hops in the aroma, not much else. Flavour is wheat vanilla and flowers covered in a light bitterness. Okay I guess.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and some brett. The flavor follows the nose with some additional notes of spices. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.
