2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 25 cl) I thought Des Fagnes filtered their beers, but this golden beer is slightly hazy with yeast even on top of the head. Fruity with a pronounced sweetness, almost overly sweet. Go for their Brune instead. 190702

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden color with a smll but lasting head. Very fruity, yeasty, sourish but sweet grapefruit aroma. Sourish, medium-dry, fruity and slightly papery flavor. A touch of alcohol, but itís not disturbing. Medium-bodied, quite foamy-carbonated palate. A quite mediocre blonde, but pretty balanced still.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25 cl bottle, bbe June 2006. Crystal clear, light amber, unusually large bubbles in the pearling and in the frothy, slightly off-white head, which is relatively unstable. Rich bouquet of aromatic hop flowers with some sweetness in the background, but finishing with rubber-like notes. The flavour is rather dry and somewhat flat, revealing caramel and metallic notes, which are retronasally even more expressed. Light acidity, light spiciness and fruitiness. A pleasant summer beer, but not much more.

Bottled 25cl (BB 04/2006)
Hazy yellow with medium white head with big bubbles. Aroma has dominantly cardboard then some grassy and coriander notes. Salty bitter flavor in the start, palate has overflowing coriander and hoppy flavors. Juicy but hard and salty finish. Outlook and aroma donít promise much but this is really enjoyable blonde.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25cl bottle, served in Super des Fagnes glass (which is actually a pretty cool glass, see picture). Aroma is sweet, lightly perfumed and floral, also quite fruity with notes of pear, melon and pineapple, some honeyish malt sweetness and a light-moderate amount of doughy yeast. Cloudy, light-medium golden color (yeast poured), with a lasting, fine, frothy head. Flavor profile starts with a burst of juicy, fruity sweetness, tropical and nicely varied, then turns quite bitter and peppery before the yeasty, lightly alcoholic finish. Mouthfeel is effervescent but smooth, body is medium-full. Integration of the substantial bitterness left something to be desired for sure, but otherwise a fairly good Belgian ale.
