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.

Golden color. Malty beer with slightly sour taste. Bitter aftertaste. Drinkable.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Lyd gylden, hvidt skum. Lidt sæbe-agtig men ok med masser af sprøde citrus og hvedebrødsnoter. Til den søde side, men med et afsluttende humlebid, der afbalancerer øllet.

Mooi geel, prima schuim. Ruikt lekker hoppig. Teveel carbo echter, niet heel lekker maar wel oke

VincentKabel (263) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
light-golden colour with a white head. High carbonation. Not a really interesting beer. Refreshin beer with a apple fruitiness. Yeast and a litlle grassy. Neutral finish. Not bad, but boring.

Bottle. Light golden, large white head. The aroma is fruity, yeasty, some spices. Dry, pale malt flavour, some spice, some hops. Uneventful.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Launched in 2011, this is a typical top-fermented blonde aimed at tourists frequenting outdoors cafés in Ghent, the inhabitants of which are called ’stroppen’. Big and rocky, lightly yellowish white head, pale golden blonde colour, clear with an enormous and beautiful amount of fizz, even more so than a glass of champagne would show. Weak aroma of green apple, pear, young cheese, vanilla, grassy hops. Soft and lightly fruity taste, apple touch, bit grainy, rather neutral, light malt sweetness, finish mildly hopped, thirst-quenching but not really bitter. Straightforward and shallow but technically correct, this serves its purpose as a simple but nice looking beer to pour down thoughtlessly whilst enjoying the view of the old Ghent city centre...

So heavily carbonated that its difficult to drink. Nice taste once you get it down though. Lots of hay, grass, pepper, and ends very dry.
