Proud, headstrong, full of character. Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, gave all these attributes to the rebellious Ghent “stroppendragers” or noose-wearers. And what goes for the people of Ghent also goes for this strong blonde beer. Nose/aromas: Relatively complex nose with hints of fruit (banana, citrus fruits), herbs, yeast, honey and sweet malt. Flavour: Refreshing in the mouth, pleasant sweet malty attack followed by hints of herbs and yeast, medium-long finish with subtle, slightly bitter touch.

Bottle, at John Bull. It’s an almost entirely clear one, golden in color and with a big, white head that lasts. Nice lacings. Fruity nose with a faint yeast note and white sugar. Apples and pears and a faint cellar touch. There’s a pleasant bitterness in the flavor, with fruits like apples and pears and some banana and lemon hints. White sugar and a herbal, lightly spiced touch. Full body, nice carbonation level, and quite dry. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness and some fruityness. A bit too much white sugar, especially in the aroma, but overall it’s quite nice. 131124

Tap at De Paas, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a frothy long lasting white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is malty yeast. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied with average carbonation. It’s a Pilsener but not too bad. Quite refreshing.
