2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottle feature a prominent aspect of Belgian culture on the side: a large breasted anime character w/ a basket full of hops on her back. The beer itself is a cloudy copper orange w/ a rather small head or white bubbles. The nose is interesting. There is a fruity Belgian yeast character along w/ a citrus floral sort of thing and a bit of gypsum mineral character punctuated w/ a bit of mint of some sort. This is a medium bodied beer. It’s slightly sticky, a bit on the under-carbonated side and a touch tart. Overall, this is unimpressive for the style or Belgian beers in general.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating from a bottle of La Botteresse Blonde, obtained at Binny’s Beverage Depot in Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a slightly hazed golden body with a short-lived fizzy head. The aroma was a blend of citrus and floral scents with a light malty sweetness. The flavor reflected the nose faithfully, adding an orange pip bitterness at the midpoint. Dry finish. Pretty tasty.
