Heldere gouden kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt, mout, pils, hop. Smaakt zoetig, verder weinig bijzonder.

serjaymz (89) - Istanbul, TURKEY - SEP 18, 2014
Istanbul, şişe. Görüntü devasa beyaz köpüğü ile çok hoş. Renk sarı-portakal, bulanık.. Gazlılık iyi.. Koku tatlı malt, hafif topraksı.. Tadım tatlı malt, hafif mahoşluk, bitirişte aromatik acılık.. Rahat içimli keyifli bir bira. Orta gövdeli, alkolünü hissettirmiyor.. Dengeli.. Damakta kalıcılık çok baskın değil ama zayıf ve kısa da değil..

Vignale (2106) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Flaska från Etre gourmet. Gyllenfärgad, disig, högt vitt bestående skum. Frisk kryddig och örtig doft med mycket jäst, hö, torkade blommor och lite tvål. Stiltypisk och karaktärsfull. Rejäl örtig beska, pepprig och kryddig, frisk, tydlig jästsmak lite fruktig med torkade äpplen och päron. Lång relativt besk eftersmak. Jag tycker nog att det här är bryggeriets mest lyckade.

javiercrasher (167) - Granada, SPAIN - AUG 25, 2014
De un color cobrizo pálido, algo velada. Espuma blanca con pequeñas burbujas y retención media. Suave aroma a pan, levadura y algo de melocotón. Oleosa y con buen cuerpo. En boca suave, de nuevo la levadura y un final ligeramente seco. Correcta.

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
The first Viven beer, dating from 1999, so from before the brand was relaunched in 2006. Golden blonde ale with a thick, rocky, snow white head and subdued fruity and malt sweetish character, some herbal hops in the finish. Okay for quenching the thirst on an outdoors café but lacking personality, this was nothing compared to what the renewed Viven brand has to offer these days. Maybe this one has improved since then, so I should re-rate this soon.

Een blond bier met een wat speciale smaak, alhoewel het niet echt mijn ding was, vond ik het ook niet heel slecht
