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 33cL from Delhaize Gent @home Pour pale, clear golden with a large white frothead, heavy retention. Sticks to the surface of the glass. The aroma is yeasty, floral hops, citric hops and hay. Also slightly metallic. Finish is slightly malty. Taste is mildly bitter with a dry, slightly sweet and bitter aftertaste, that lasts long. Its got a medium body with a thin texture. Its got lively carbonation and a long finish.

Bweurk. Dit is een onwaarschijnlijk flauw bier, met wat hop en chemisch smakende suikers ergens halverwege. Het smaakt zoals het heet: een strop rond je nek.

Not directly a beer I will remember. Good, but not good enough to stand out.

Ysok02 (1444) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2016
Belle robe blonde, mousse crmeuse. Nez agrable sur des notes fruites, houblonnes et citronnes. Bouche lattaque ample, de la fracheur, du fruit et de lamertume en finale. Une belle blonde quilibre, de soif.

KoNrRiI (1442) - rhus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A delicately hazy, light gold color with a medium, somewhat creamy, white head of good retention leaving decent lacing. Aroma of pale malts, some metal, and... not much else. Taste is yeasty, delicately, somewhat sour. A medium body, a slick texture, and an above average carbonation. Finish is short and insipid. All in all the beer is mediocre at best.

guzgorog (833) - FRANCE - JUL 17, 2016
Robe blonde paille, presque limpide, mousse blanche "bulleuse" moyenne de bonne tenue. Nez de crales et de malts. Bouche douce, sur le grain et le sucre, finale faiblement houblonne et pice. Bonne carbo, corps moyen. Ale belge assez standard, mais agrable.
