Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
33cl bottle. Golden liquid with medium white head. Nose : malt with citrus zest, little hay aromas, yeasty. Sip : Quite well carbonated, low density body with oily texture, easy to drink and refreshing. Medium sweet with complexe finish with aromatic and bitter hops. Really drinkable and deliciously refreshing. One of the best "blond" I tasted so far in Belgium.

Aroma is yeasty, bready, some citrus, typical Belgium blonde bits. Taste is banana, citrus, bitter, soft mouthfeel, dry, short bitterness. Slightly tart. Drank at just past room temperature. May have been better a bit colder.

Very hazy gold beer. Thick frothy white head. Light palate, a little dry and a little soft around the edge. Soft creamy saison like aromatic malt with a nice fresh zingy orange and citrus well integrated. Finishes soft, frothy and dry. Pretty decent, fresh and frothy.

Bottle, Beermerchants.com. Herby/flowery aroma, pours a hazy pale gold. Good bittersweet taste, sharp & fizzy on the palate, with a faint malty finish. Lovely foaming white head that stays well throughout. Alcohol is quite subtle, touch of dryness late on.
