This is the best beer ever. This hoppy beer is pleasured by an aroma of Flowers, Perfume, Herbs, Grass. The taste is full and refreshing.

This beer was simply wonderful. It has only 4 ingredients. Very pure. The taste, aroma, and appearance of this beer is the very best.

Segurament la meva cervesa preferida. Espectacular, molta espuma, gust exquisit, d’aquelles cerveses que no pararies mai d’anar tastant.

Slightly cloudy in appearance with fairly thick white head. Pleasant on the nose, slightly creamy/hoppy. Baffling to taste! Fruity on the way in, rich and full bodied yet mild and refreshing at the same time. Mildly bitter after taste. Would recommend as an entry level beer.

Little cloudy blond yellow beer, huge creamy white head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: citrus, grassy, herbal, little bit fruity, hay. Taste: fruity (peaches and citrus), herbal, hop bitterness, cloves. Aftertaste: citrus, ripe pears, spices and nice hoppy ending. Really good blond beer.

Bov (9560) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2011
courtesy of Doeschi - hazy blond beer under a little fine white head; nice lacework; aroma of orange peels, almonds and hints of cardamom; medium to full-bodied and with some tart acidity; fairly tasty, creamy and with a late solid bitterness; slightly salty and long tart fruity and spicy finish - very nice

Swaroga (1353) - 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.

Lekker vol biertje. Lijkt wat op la chouffe maar dan iets kruidiger en minder zoet. Ook wat minder diepgang. Verder lekker biertje, medium koolzuur. Prima mondgevoel.
