Bamsen78 (2886) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of citrus, flowers, and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of malt and fruit, and touches of citrus. Bitter and citric finish. OK.

If you want to give a non beerdrinker a belgian blonde, thus will definitely not offend them. Extremely middle of the road, nothing real special but not bad at all.

Pas de surprise, ça ne vaut pas la version triple, mais c’est tout de même très agréable en bouche et assez surprenant pour une blonde. Jolie mousse.

Mothroy (68) - - NOV 24, 2013
Refreshing, spicy blonde ale. Slightly hazy, maize grain flavour with an earthy hop bitterness that is subtle but builds to a dryish finish. A satisfying beer, not overly sweet which makes at very drinkable.

Bosbouw (1048) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Heldere oranjegele kleur met een volle kraag. Fruitige, zoetige geur. frisse bitterzoete en iets zure smaak. Niets bijzonders.
