Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has citrus, grapefruit, hops, orange peel and yeast. Taste is mostly a heavy bitterness with some grapefruit. Medium body and carbo. Decent, but a bit one dimensional and too bitter in the taste.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Clear golden colour, medium white head, flowery sweet smell in the beginning, witch transformes in a sharp hoppy grapefruit smell, very hoppy high bitter medium carbonation, sweet grapefruit like taste, quite a lot of taste for its 4,8% it is sort of an IPA like blond beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is an unclear blond beer with a good white foamy head. In the noise there are a lot a hops, more then you expect from the ij. Therefore there is a strong bitterness wich overpowers the signature yeast flavour of the ij beers. Very refreshing a really nice light beer.

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit, oranges, fruity yeast, a bit sweaty. Flavour is dry, quite hoppy, grapefruit, leaves, light yeasty, firm bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not sure about the style, but it's a nice hoppy blond ale that will do very well in the summertime. Good.
