sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
Bouteille 33cl, lot#499, BB 02/2017. Blonde-orangée sur un léger voile, col épais blanc. Arôme est houblonné noble, malt sur un petit côté fleuri avec un côté organique me rappelant le miel. Palais offre un malté carapils, grains - froment? sur un profil fleuri houblonné vert frais dans une approche très noble. Petite pointe épicée, pour un fini sec et terreux. Retrouve dans la levure un style belge voire français et un houblonné apportant une fin métallique.

JFF (98) - - AUG 16, 2015
Moi qui n’aime habituellement pas trop les blondes, j’ai beaucoup apprécié cette bière. Couleur cuivre plutôt que doré, belle mousse compact blanche. Arômes, amertume et corps bien balancé avec le niveau d’alcool, ce qui en fait une blonde atypique mais très réussi.
