3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a re-badged version of one of two blonde beers produced by Du Bocq. Low on aroma and fairly thin mouthfeel. A pleasant enough refreshing Blonde unlike some of the more cloying, heavy versions around.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light and fizzy blonde, some visible sediment. Tastes along the lines of a watered down Leffe blonde, although with an unattractive rubbery/balloon taste & aroma! Not worth trying IMO, for a far superior blonde from Waitrose, try the Tripel Karmeliet.
