330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pale yellow color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, cereals, fart in aroma. Not quite good aroma. Malty, sweet, fruity, coriander, spicy, bit metallic, alcohol in taste. Fruity alcohol in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. Yeast improves that brew, but can’t really save it.

Une belle couleur blonde paille elle mousse beaucoup et elle est assez tenace On est à laisser sentir une légère odeur double va sentir aussi une odeur légèrement aigre En bouche va être très très douce Je ne la trouve pas si exceptionnel que ça...

Bottle. Translucent Pilsner pour, champaign like. Aroma is sweet and slightly murky, resembles Leffe blond a bit. Notes of fresh grass, citrus. Taste is slightly sour with sweet notes, again like Leffe but more watered down. Bitter and dry aftertaste which is a little too dry maybe. Nothing too special, but not that bad either. Could easily drink a couple.

Une blonde douce. Très douce pour ses sept degrés au compteur. Amertume très légère. Pas mauvais, rafraîchissant, mais manque de saveurs vu la catégorie dans laquelle on est censé évoluer.

Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Sweet and yeasty aroma - the yeasty part is mushroomy and peculiar but in a good way. Very fizzy carbonation. Taste is generic and bland with metallic hops, too bad it’s yet another boring blond ale. The aroma was promising something more.

Cerveza que para mi gusto es un poco floja, me pareció que estaba demasiado carbonatada notandose mucho la presencia de alcohol, pero a rasgos generales es una cerveza pasable

Douce, légèrement amère. Fruitée. Agréable . Légère un peu trop sucrée peut-être... belle couleur

Light straw pour with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is bitter.

freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 15, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde, mousse assez présente et effervescence moyenne, petit nez sur les malts et le sucre candy, même attaque en début de bouche puis continuité sur la poire mais bien équilibrée.

martjoobolut (4314) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 8, 2015
0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee as Ommegang Keizer Karel Charles Quint Biere Blonde), BB 08.02.16. Pours hazy yellow with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sour, fruits, yeast, grains. Flavor is sweet and tart, fruits, citrus, grains, yeast. Finish is sweet and dry bitter. Alcohol is not too obvious. Overall: ok-ish.
