4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy amber with a huge frothy head, that lasts through the session. The arome is sweet from the yeast, oranges. It’s a lovely smell. The taste is malty and peppery from the hops, tasty but a tad too hoppy for me. It’s a great beer, classic Contreras stuff.

Cloudy golden body with a quite large, white and very long-lived head. Moderate to faint aroma of Belgian yeast, generic fruits, and some spices in the back. Moderate flavour of light fruits, black pepper and other Belgian yeasty spicy notes, and in the back I get caramel, honey and alcohol. Light sweet and light to moderate bitterness. Mid-bodied and dry with a lively carbonation. A nice one, but too modest. I like more Belgian yeast in my blonds.

Robe blonde dorée voilée. Col de mousse blanche moyen aéré de tenue moyenne. Nez fruité de mandarine. Arôme de levure et de malt. Bouche bien équilibrée entre douceur et amertume. Celle-ci se développe d’avantage en finale. Notes légères d’agrume. Touche levurée et base maltée. Alcool peu masqué. Texture moyennement épaisse. Carbonatation assez vive. Blonde belge classique, très équilibrée entre douceur et amertume, arôme houblonné d’orange/mandarine. Salmaneser (175) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2017
