33 cL Bottle at home. Pours very clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is quite sweet with some sugar, flowers, some alcohol, bit of fruitiness. Taste is also quite sweet with some yeast, flowers, bit malty, soft bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Decent, but nothing too exciting.

Prima blond bier met veel hop en dito bittere smaak. Klein beerje fruitig. Nederlands topbier!

Strykzone (7182) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2016
12 ounce bottle at the Amsterdam airport that came with a tulip glass. Clear bright golden with a fluffy white head. Pepper and alcohol are tasted. Surprised to see a blonde with this ABV. Some fruit and a little yeast. Some sugar is noted late. That alcohol taste makes this less than enjoyable.

Bottle from Mam and Dads holiday, Netherlands. Bright golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet, warming floral fruit and spicy flavour followed by an earthy and powerful lemon and apple finish. Ok, but too high an ABV for the flavour.

Fles gedeeld door BramLustenhouwer. Het bier heeft een donker gele kleur met wit schuim. Het ruikt zoet maar heeft een verrassende bitter van de hop.

Bottle. Color: Clear amber gold, thin white head. Taste: Starting with sweet malts, after that the hop comes in, hints of yellow fruits and alcohol. Bit chemical, not my style.

I must admit: brand beer is not my beer. Nothing wrong with this beer but I just do not get happy from it.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow to orange with a small white head and an aroma of toffee, brown sugar, sweet malts, banana, citrus and spices. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a serious amount of hops for a mainstream high-abv beer. Medium long bitter finish. Pretty nice.
