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

Swaroga (1389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2012
75cl bottle. Hazy yellow/orange liquid with medium thick white head. Nose : wet laundry soap with citrus freshness. Straw and grains and little tart like malts. Sip : Decent carbonation with low density body and creamy texture. Little sweet tart like flavor with strong citrus aromas. Bitter citrus zest notes in the aftertaste. Good balance. Drinkable beer. Well done ! Extra points for being my kind of beer.

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.

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2006
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.

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 27, 2008
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.
