3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A light, delicate, fragrant strong pale ale. The yeast has worked well to create a dry and lean ale redolent with subtle flowery flavours. Sweetness from the addition of sugar in the bottle gives a rounded balance and a fine effervescence. A surprisingly gentle and attractively drinkable blond.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best beer of the tasting by a long shot, and my best blond iv ever had, including woman. Aroma was super peachy, pineapple sweet malts and raisins, very very nice. Taste is similar fruityness, not so sweet as easy drinking, really peachy. An excellent beer in every way.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Sim rate (Draught at ZBF): Very faint hay aroma. Slightly sweet and honey. Generic blonde flavour with a bit of extra malt. Almost salty. No finish. Pretty straight forward but easily drinkable.

Bottle: Poured hazy amber with a thin white head. The aroma was hoppy floral. The flavor was floral and slightly bitter. The best part was this being served in a ceramic bowl.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with small floaties in it and a thick, rocky white head. The aroma is mostly about the yeast, there are also fruits that were detected. The flavor is a bit underwhelming, there’s yeast, fruits and spices but it doesn’t feel too exciting and entertaining. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. As with a lot of this breweries’ beers, it’s a decent belgian beer but not interesting enough to want to buy it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. It is a bit unclear, with sediments floating in the golden body with a big, white head. Fruity aroma with banana, hints of citrus, some spices, tea, apple and some yeast. Fruity and lightly spiced flavor with spices, some cellar and some alcohol. Medium to full mouthfeel with some sweet stickyness. It has some metallic notes as well. A nice, yet a bid mediocre blond.
