Good Belgian blond beer. Very yeasty and fruity, with some aroma hopping. Does not have the artificial taste these beers often have nowadays.

Bottle thnx to Viven Pours clear blonde, good to small white head . Smell is sweet maltyness Nice amount of bitterness in the taste, as well as a dry, almost buttery grainy character . Not nearly as sweet as expected . Nothing to special though .

A blond I actually enjoy. Beautiful head and for a blonde great palate as well. Quite sweet, almost honey like. Certainly not as good as the other Viven beers though. Tap at Charlies in Hoorn.

Avec "vraie bière flamande", j’attendais plus de caractère. Belle mousse persistante, qui tient au verre. Bulles fines. Pas désagréable, ni extraordinaire.

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

33cl bottle from ’t Drankenhuys. Pale yellow/orange with a small white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter herbal tones. Yeast, herbs, flower, citrus and some grapefruit. A decent tasty Belgian brew.

RW80 (544) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: Hazy Golden blond with a huge white head, good retention nice lacing. Aroma: A bit to thin, but it has some malts, grassy and a bit citrus and white bread. Taste: malts, light sweet, very Belgian yeast and a bit of coriander giving a light spicey tough, then some light citrus hops before it ends with some sweeter notes. No real bitterness very easy drinkable. Low carbonation,medium body Not special, but a very refined and Friendly Belgian Blond.
