2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy light amber colored beer with a white head. Fair amount of apple ester along with some bread and a mild toasted malt. Some hints of yeast, but a pretty mild aroma overall. The flavor is similarly uninteresting. Just a bit of toasted malt and bread, some mild sweetness, and a bit of apple ester. Not really much to this beer.
F: medium size, off-white, good retention.
C: murky, hazy, opaque.
A: malty, fruity, yeasty, white sugar, peach, bit of banana.
T: malty, yeasty, fruity, dough, bit grassy, peach, medium body and carbonation, very ordinary Belgian ale, partially enjoyed, 33cl bottle from Bierwinkel De Hopduvel in Gent.

Vermaek, Slenne 2016. - Bref: Pours, smells and tastes like a rougher, both yeast- and hop-bitter version of regional classic Augustijn Blond. - Dirty orangebeige pour - the cartoon pig straight from the 80s does not help much to elevate this beer’s aura beyond the pigsty & stable. - Green, almost white-peppery "wet" hops in aroma, then intimations of something fruitier soon overshadowed by wet yeast fumes. Dials back the honeysweet speciality malts of a traditional Belgian blond recipe (Augustijn, Ename) to substitute with deft earthy EU hop bite that falls on a rougher, yeast-laden mouthfeel and somehow lacks structure.
7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival, poured from a bottle. Light amber, hazy golden colour, white topping. Nice enough blend but not a lot going on really in either the aroma or taste. Leaning towards a ’Pilsner with a difference’ in flavour and looks. Semi-sweet and mildly malty, just lacked oomph! Zita (6331) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014

Golden coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Sweet aroma, sweet malts, light bread and sugars. Same for the flavor. hednom (195) - Messelbroek, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at home, hazy light amber with white top, light body, not bad but rather an average beer. Alengrin (5891) - BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2014
First beer of this brewery, since 2008. Snow white, irregular, quite stable head, yellowish ochre blonde colour, cloudy. Strong orange aroma, some peach, wheaty sourishness, pineapple, white bread, straw, grass; soft sweetish taste with fresh orange touch, smooth sweetish maltiness, medium carbonation, vague presence of wheaty sourness, light spicy yeastiness, finish sweetish with only a presumtion of grassy hoppiness, no real bitterness (enough). mikske79 (1753) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 7, 2014
Een heel lekker blond bier, echt een aanrader om eens te proberen. Heel lekkere smaak. JefVerstraete (3746) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
Boring blond beer. Medium carbonation. Rather watery aroma with some spices.
