Bottle 0,33. Cloudy golden colour. The taste is sweet sugary, but not too much. Easy to forget it is 9%.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Očekivao sam neki veći odmak u kvaliteti od Blonda , ali osim 1,5% više alkohola , malo drukčije arome koja nije toliko slatkasta i okusa koji je slatkast ko i Blond samo što malko baca na citruse , kvaliteta je manje više ista , a to znači OK ....srednja-viša klasa. Ako vam se sviđa Blond sviđat če vam se i ovaj !

vinivini (3262) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 3, 2018
Bottle. Misty golden ale with a huge white sticky head. Aroma: mighty Belgian yeast giving spicy, fruity and perfumy notes. Pale malts. Medium body. The taste is rather dry. Yeasty. Apples & pears, spices, grass & straw, some farmhouse feel. Light plus bitterness. Complex. Very interesting.

Bottle. Light gold. Pillowy white head, nice lacing. A bit of fruit, spice, hops & malt.

julesxxl (545) - Cholet, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 (insistance crasse sur l’amertume, du nez jusqu’à la bouche (arrière métallique gentianesque), pas raffinée)

azzurro (547) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2018
nice Belgian blonde, the aroma is deceiving as the taste is definitely in line with the good abbey beers.

Zilb (418) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2017
2 mois APRES DLC. Blonde, beau col de mousse à très bonne tenue et carbo relativement importante. Arôme d'alcool de poire, fruité. En bouche, alcool et malt omniprésent. Final épicé, alcolisée et fruité. Pas mal, mais un peu métallique, bizarre dans ce type de bière. Bien, mais alcool trop prononcé et n'apporte pas grand chose. En-dessous cde sa petite soeur à 7,5% que j'ai préféré.

From bottle. Transfer of an earlier rating without text recorded, rating only.

AleRider78 (1524) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a huge foamy bubbly head and dissipates rather quickly to a thin layer that leaves thick patchy lacing. Has a golden appearance. Yeasty, grainy and wheaty aromas. Some spices and resin hops as well. Has fairly fruity flavours, some mild citrus and herbal hops. Excessive carbonation. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Very good brew.

Lowenbrau (4858) - Asturias, SPAIN - AUG 4, 2017
33cl bottle during the good old beer times.
Pours hazy dark gold with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some good lacing. Yeasty, herbal, malty nose. Medium body,average to high carbonation, slick texture. Taste is spicy, malty, overall sweet. Alcohol noticed.
