From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours relatively hazy loaded gold with white foam. Aroma is caramel and some citrus. Body is medium-dense with good carbonation. Taste is well balanced, with some predominance of bitterness. Finish, however, is long and sweet.

White Ponys golden ale but correctly classified here as a Belgian ale, because thats what it is (a Belgian blonde, actually). Light gushing upon opening. Yellowish white, creamy, dense head still breaking open in a few minutes, but retaining well around the edges and leaving light lacing. Colour is a misty orange blonde with a fog of yeast floating in the heart of it; after adding the deposit, I get a muddy, soupy brownish orange. Very estery and very Belgian aroma of overripe cantaloupe and peach, a ton of sweet honey, persimmon, bubblegum, caramel syrup (prominently so), banana, strawberry ice cream, liquorice, orange candy, apple cake, burning hay, lots of spicy phenols (very suggestive, ethereal impressions of cloves, vanilla and mint; in warming up, a medicinal band aid odour joins this array of ethereal spices), dried ginger, roses and fried egg but nothing disturbing. Sweet, even somewhat sugary onset, fortunately not cloying too much and countered by a deep, dull and basic sourishness which will persist till the end without giving the impression of any infection; canned apricot, strawberry, melon and orange sweetness, with medium carbonation and lean and smooth body, yeasty spiciness clearly there and even tingling a bit here and there, dryish in the finish but still with lingering sugars, honeyish and very caramelly malt base, toasted accent in the end, leading towards a phenolicly spicy finish with long-lasting caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness as well as a faint impression of earthy hop bitterness. After adding the deposit, the unmistakable yeast powderiness is there as well. Clearly a malt-forward thirst quencher, another Italian micro brew with entirely Belgian profile. The sweetness is a bit too much and the hop bitterness is clearly too low - the latter resulting in a finish with rather watery texture, fading away all too quickly and not leaving a lasting impression; the remaining mouthfeel is a bit resiny and sticky, but obviously more so from residual sugars than from hops. Not completely unpleasant in general, but a bit bland and too much aimed at the masses, who have gotten used to overly sweet blondes throughout the years. Fermentation has not worked out well either, this beer looks too soupy and spreads too many phenols around, so with some technical improvement, a more generous hop dosis and less of the boring candi syrup sweetness, this could already become a lot better.

White Pony, un birrificio italiano. Una ale in stile belga particolarmente adatta allestate. Dorata con una schiuma di media compattezza, aroma fresco, di malto e frutta. Bevibilissima, scende che un amore e la finisci senza accorgertene. Fruttata, leggera, davvero ben riuscita.

Cest une bonne bire mais qui manque un peu de corps: au palais ne tiens pas et elle na pas beaucoup de complexit. On sent bien leau.

Een van de beste bieren dat ik de laatste dagen geprobeerd hebt, een heel zachte maar uitgesproken smaak

Shared with Wim at his place. Hazy amber colored beer with small white head and only few carbonation. Herby malty, vanilla hinted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is herby bitter sweet.
