3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from local Albert Heijn, best before 10/12/2016. Cloudy, golden yellow with a huge, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Fruity-spicy aroma of lemon peel, apricot and vanilla with hints of banana. Sweetish-sourish, fruity-spicy taste of lemon peel, apricot, banana, vanilla and cloves, followed by a medium long, slightly sourish and yeasty finish. Medium body, effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very witbier-like, refreshing and nicely balanced brew. More on the spicy than on the fruity side with a lot of foam on your palate. Nice!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden, slightly hazy, with a thick white head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma is Weizen-like: clove and banana, but with a Belgian twist: some peppery, yeasty notes make an appearance. Also some floral notes. Taste: slight cereal, some banana and pepper, also apple. Noticeable acidity and minimal sweetness. Alcohol is detectable. Low bitterness. Very high carbonation, medium body. Not a particularly great beer. There’s nothing above average about it, and the crazy high carbonation + alcohol in the taste disturb a bit. Otherwise, the beer is OK, but just OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its a nice beer, but a bit on the sweet side to call it a belgium blonde in my opinion! Nice citrus tones with a hint of coriander.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a stable and large white head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is spicy, with also light tones of vanilla, cloves, bananas and citrus.
The taste is refreshing and soft. The Co2 is well noticable, and combines perfectly with the fruity tones of tangerines and the spiciness of nutmeg. This beer is light bitter in the end, which is very pleasant.
The finish is short with light tones of cinnamon and vanilla.

330ml bottle from Beer me up Scotty, Shrewsbury Market Hall. Kinda liked the label so bought on impulse. Wish I’d not bothered really. A bit unspectacular, a little sweet for a Belgian blonde with a slight breadiness coming through. Ok, but that’s it.

Veel prijzen gewonnen blijkbaar, maar mij kan t me niet echt bekoren. Wat zurig, wat wit bier, licht hoppig. Tis een mengelmoes van alles en werkt daardoor niet echt voor mij.
