12-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This Belgian Blond pours a very hazy, yellow-gold body with over an inch of off-white head that settles to a wide ring. The nose is bready, slightly sweet, a bit grassy, and fairly spicy, with quite a dusty quality to it, as well as some juniper. It’s a malty beer, with yeasty bread and toasty bread crust, but the mildly bitter hops add a floral and somewhat grassy character, and there is a pleasant yeasty spiciness in the finish. The light-medium bodied beer is well-carbonated, but it seems that much of the carbonation goes toward generating the large head, which results in a lower than desired level of carbonation on the palate. Larger patches of lacing stick to the glass. Overall, this beer won’t be memorable, but it’s a pleasant, drinkable Blond to sip on over the course of an evening.
F: huge, white, adhesive, good retention.

A: fruity, yeasty, apple, spicy, coriander, honey.
T: malty, dusty, grassy, yeasty, touch of fruity, floral, coriander, light soapy, medium body, medium carbonation, good, easy drinking and tasty, enjoyed, 33cl bottle from Prik & Tik ABC Drinks in Leuven.

Flaska från Saveur-bier. Gyllenfärgad, lätt disig, lågt skum. Söt och ganska kryddig doft med lite söt frukt i bakgrunden. I grunden en söt blond med lätt kropp, lite som en lättare variant av Duvel med söta fruktiga inslag, söta päron, äpplen, apelsinskal och druvor. På det en rejäl kryddighet med pors, malört, koriander som kanske är lite väl tilltagen. Men annars ett trevlig belgare. Alusmamuts (2137) - LATVIA - JUL 1, 2015
Golden with quite rich white head. Slite sweet aroma with citrus notes. Moderate bitterness with fruity (coriander) sweetness, bit too watery and bit too harsh bitterness in aftertaste, othrwise intersting and refreshing. rdb84 (625) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2015
Bottle. Honey color with frothy soapy head. Nice carbonation. Aroma is a nice sour blend of lemon, slightly ripened cheese, black pepper. Taste is a little watery and Pilsener like. Reminds of biscuits. Hint of fresh mushroom in development. Melon, lime aftertaste. A little bland. Very drinkable though. DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
