Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Tastes a little of wheat but the flavour is quite smooth since it has a lively carbonation.

Hamirubi (579) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2017
33cl bottle at home (28 IV 2017). This six percent alcohol Belgian ale is a true classic among the blonde abbey beers. The appearance is quite straightforward, with a rather clear, vivid looking orange to amber brew. The collar is somewhat thick and white at first, very frothy and snowlike, but dimishes soon afterwards. Appealing at the first glance, and with a Belgian-alcohol and -grains flavoured aroma as well. The nose has some interesting features to offer. There are some very present citrus notes in there, with spring green vegetables or even aubergines and fresh, crispy cucumber peel. The malts arent omnipresent, but surely have their deliberate spot on the background. The Maredsous yeast strains are - thank God - not as classic and thus dust and dirtlike. This is one of the smoother Belgian abbeys on the market - maybe a that underappreaciated. This ale starts with some lemon features, complementing light sour notes. One can perhaps spot some peachy flavours in the beginning as well. These features stand with the sweet dashes. The malt backbone is firm without really being overpowered or overwhelming. The alcohol body actually is pretty weak - it is only present in the long, warm aftertaste. This good quenching, smooth drinking ale has quite a silk-like, smooth tongue. It almost represents a creamy, vanilla or wood character: But let me be clear, these tones are very subtle and maybe farfetched too. Because the palate in itself is not that colourful: Of course, this Maredsous blonde 6% ABV stands far from the complexity of the tripel version. Hence, the mouthfeel lacks some building stones to truly offer a variety of flavours. But it is an easy to drink, quite straightforward and smooth ale without true overwhelming punches and thus pretty classic.

Kirpsakka, aromikas ja samea. Sitrusta ja kuivahedelmi. Alkoholi hieman puskee lpi mausta. Sopii hyvin tmmiseen puolipilviseen kevtpivn paistettujen muikkujen kera.

Robe blonde, mousse crmeuse. Nez sur le fruit et la farine, assez peu complexe. Bouche frache et acidule, bulle agrable, finale sur lamertume. Une bouche agrable, un nez un peu en retrait.

Evilman (214) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 10, 2017
A good, soft one! The triple one is by far my favorite, but this one has not to be overlooked. Sweet taste, floral aroma and clear golden color. Similar in taste to the stronger variants but obviously smoother due to its rather low alcohol level. This is a very good one for any occasion, for a refreshing drink or to go along with a good meal.
