Bottle. Hazy yellow orange, massive whipped eggwhite foamy head. Flavor is pale malts, bread and a hint of yeast. Nice mild backbone of candi sugars and a fresh hop profile to dry it out a bit. Solid easy sipping Belgian pale ale. Tasty.

kermis (11232) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle shared. Fairly hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of big yeast, caramel, herbs, tart weird infected notes, rotting carbonation compost, garbage. Ohhhh shut this is bad. Flavour is heavy sweet moderate to heavy sour. Dreadful awful infected terrible and down the drain..

Pours a hazy golden body with a large lasting head. Aroma of yeast and malts. Rough and unpolished taste with a hint of spices, still rather nice though.

Blonde natur-ale, comme dit le brasseur, avec du houblon belge. Niveau abv de 7 %. Couleur blond moyen, avec un très léger voile. Bulles en fontaine centrale de milliers d’unités, magnifique. Mousse blanche épaisse, avec texture bob (blanc d’œuf battu) en haut, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt clair, herbes des prés, trèfle, avoine, épeautre. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec malt et houblon fin intimement liés, comme à la parade. Arrière-bouche fine, mais bien maltée. 2ème qui poursuit valeureusement la présentation des malts très fins. Arrière-bouche douce, fine, longue. 3ème vraiment bien faite, léger manque de complexité mais forte présence. Arrière-bouche plus qu’agréable, et sans aucun défaut. Longueur avec de très belles découvertes encore, du malt, des fleurs, des senteurs des champs. Jambes fines et bien marquées. Alcool très correct, il aide à l’ensemble et laisse s’exprimer le tout. Finale avec beaucoup de finesse, jusqu’à la tendresse. CONCLUSION : une superbe blonde, au beau caractère, très spontanée et naturelle. Bref, le contraire absolu de la blonde artificielle !!!

Clear golden, small offwhite head. Light malty aroma. Rough, malty flavour, something artificial. Some spice and alcohol but again rather rough.

Bamsen78 (5071) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of bread, malt, caramel and fruit, with notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with bready and hoppy notes and some flowery touches. Lively carbonation, but the body is rather thin. Bitter and rough aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special as such.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of burnt plastic. Almost clear golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is not good. Lots of burnt plastic. Some raw liquorice, slightly spicy. Not a full-blown plastic beer, but not good either.
