Hazy, blond body. White, fizzy head. Ok lace. Very fresh aroma (like some kind of cleaning product) of citrus, orange. Quite complex and interesting nose. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite yeasty flavour. In total, I don’t really like it that much as I did like the aroma.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 In short: A basic floral Belgian blonde ale. Good but nothing special.Borresteijn (7267) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2008
How: Bottle 330ml, drank when about 6 months of age
The look: Clear blonde body topped by an initially large white head with medium retention
In long: Averagely fruity for a Belgian Ale with flavours of pineapples, apples (red and green), bananas, some grapefruits. Hops are very much on the floral side of things, almost perfumy. Sensation of floral petal juice along with some dry grass. Light acidity. Very lively carbonation, maybe a bit too much so. White pepper and salty notes, the beer has a strong mineral presence. An overall crisp and fresh sensation upped the score a few points. Very drinkable in its simplicity, almost underrated. The truth is that this beer isn’t far from one of the best Belgian Blonde ale. Silly is only 70 miles away from Westvleteren.
Bottle @ Take One. Hazy golden colour, white head. Very fruity aroma, malty and flowery. Flavour adds some hoppy notes to that, with a slightly bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Becomes a bit boring in the end. Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2008
