Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2012
#1238 Güldenes Bier mit prächtiger Schaumkrone. Ein primär fruchtiges Aroma nach Orange und Zitrone. Vollmundiger Antrunk, ausgeprägter Malzkörper, auch im Geschmack schön rezent. Der Hopfen hat auch nen Citruseinschlag und rundet dieses Abteibier gut ab. Lecker!

stevoj (2328) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2012
This looked interesting in the store (Carrefour @Malmedy, Belgium). I hadn’t heard of it before, and then found out it is contract brewed by du Bocq for the grocery giant. I wasn’t expecting much, so was quite surprised this it is a decent Belgian blonde. Nice deep copper, color; thick creamy, sticky head and ample carbonation. Poured into a Grimbergen goblet, it looks gorgeous. A little mild on the flavor side, but still tasty. This will proably be hard to find in the US (or anywhere outside of a Carrefour), but there are better Belgians to be had. Still enjoyable though, and affordable.
