Thanks slovaksniper for this extra. Light clear golden body, white head, some lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, maybe a touch of vanilla. Taste is sweet grains again, maybe some apple. Too much like a sweet pale lager. But not bad.

Robe blonde, mousse peu abondante. Nez fruité, épicé, malté et légèrement houblonné. Bouche à l’attaque ample, mais manquant un peu de fruit et de corps, finale épicée, ronde. Une blonde agréable, sans plus.

Pours golden and clear blonde with a rocky head that doesn’t last. Fruity aromas of citrus, herbs and hay. It tastes light sweet with a long finish, not too bitter. The body is medium and the carbonation average. A decent ale.

Pours a blonde colour. Taste is candy like with some liqourice and a medicinal aftertaste

danlo (3145) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
250ml bottle from Carrefour Express at Brussels Midi station. Golden colour, white foam head and fruity, yeasty aroma with some banana, lemon rind, candy. Taste is sweetish, grainy, malt, corn, with spice, fruity & earthy notes and light grassy bitterness. Light bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry spicey finish. Quite drinkable.

I’m not too impressed by this Ciney Blonde. Although it has a nice texture it’s aroma is to poor to be really bothered.

chromeotaphor (174) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Muf zoet citrus broodachtig aroma. Zeepachtige schuimkraag. Zoet bitter met een lekkere bite, makkelijk weg te drinken zonder al teveel diepgang. Doet een beetje goedkoop aan.

bartlebier (4089) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
25cl, mercifully, supermarket impulse buy. One of many pseudo-abbey ales brewed by one of the big industrial lager conglomerates, building on the carapils-powered Alken-Maes/InBev dynasty of starchy industrial Belgian lagers: cf. Leffe, Grimbergen et al. - - Nose of starched banana peel and industrial sugar, carapils derived caramels and Honeypops glaze. Taste adds some industrial intimations of apricot jelly to that, corn syrup, as well as some surprising citrussy hops, its only redeeming flavour. Unclean, sugary palate, Sprite-like dose of tooth decay. - Dead in terms of a yeast profile or malt complexity. Hopefully extinct once new schools of natural brewing gain more impact...
