Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

330ml from Arden Wines. Bright gold slicked with white. Big juicy wine gum nose with suggestions of orange, pear, pineapple and green herb. Bright and perfumed with orange rind and sappy hop giving way to pale biscuity malt and peppery booze. A little harsh and soapy on the finish at first but mellows with each sip. Decent.

bonkiedeaap (607) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a nice and large white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of citrus, apples, caramel and bitterness of yeast and spices. The taste is light sweet with malts, fruits and caramel, and changes into robust hoppiness, with some notes of spices, flowers and yeast. The finish is light dry, refreshing and bitter.

MelvinKalksma (801) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, wheat, Belgian yeast and flowers.

Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Medium sweet with malts, caramel, wheat, Belgian yeast and flowers.

This beer is rather intense, but lacks both complexity and character. It is sweet and simple, but still delicious to drink.

Lekker zacht zoet blondje. Licht hoppig met tonen van vanille. Gewoon lekker blondje, niet te sterk.

carac (5) - Cuesmes, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2016 does not count
Une belle couleur allant de jaune à légèrement orangé-cuivre,(eau ferrugineuse), un peu trouble. Un col de mousse qui tient, une crème blanche, type pâte à crêpes. Le nez évoque les champignons séchés, levure. Effervescence carbonique, fine bulles. En bouche des noix, un soupçon de caramel qui cède la place à des notes d’agrumes. L’amertume est légère, une pointe d’acidité. Longueur moyenne, sel de mer en fin de bouche.

adamnowek (1648) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2015
Weird mushroom aroma. Taste evens out into a more typical Belgian ale with lots of carbonation that blends well with some sweetness.

Perfect, classic belgium blonde, very well ballanced, nothing too excentric, just a well done classic.
