A nice range of beers made at Anders; sadly the "Brouwerij" Henricus firm doesn’t bother to mention this on the label. This one is a very well-balanced blond ale that uses smart hopping to taste like *beer* rather than like sugar, spices or tropical fruit. Pours a lovely deep golden color with sturdy froth and sticky lace, and almost totally clear since the sediment stuck neatly to the bottom of the bottle. Pleasant nose of sweet grain, vanilla cookie, herbal hop, apples, note of iron. Subdued yeast phenolics. Sweet caramel-sugar taste up front, quickly rolling into a nice firm, herbal-spicy bitterness, carried on lively carbonation, medium body. Pleasant, mildly bitter aftertaste lingers. harrisoni (18570) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2017
On tap at Cafe Cambrinus Brugge. Hazy blond beer lasting white head. Rustic earthy flavour from being unfiltered. Some spicy hop on the finish. Yes decent rustic blond. roflorence (109) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2017
Clear, golden colour with a white head. Slightly sweet malt on the nose. Light fruit and spices on the palate. Medium carbonation. visionthing (5333) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2017
33cl bottle at KiviPaberKäärid, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a white head. Mild malty and somewhat fruity aroma with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of spices. Medium sweet with rather mild flavours and a light bitterness. Fairly standard Belgian blonde. maupie (1097) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
33cl fles. Tweeschijn blond kleur, fijne romige witte schuimkraag. Aroma is muffig en licht citrus. Smaak is zoet, erg metaalachtig, suiker en moutig. Licht lichaam, veel koolzuur. Had meer verwacht van een bier met 4 hop soorten erin.

Bottle as a gift. Blond colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet malty, fruity, light tartness. Light hoppy. Good, nothing exceptional. jzi (314) - POLAND - DEC 28, 2016

Beautiful golden orange color, no sediments, just a little hazy. Nice head with very good retention; nice lacing as well.
Aroma is bread with hints of caramel, some spices, bananas and citrus.
Taste is better then aroma in my opinion. The start is bitter-sweet, evolving in something sweeter with hints of bread and caramel, moderate bitterness, some fruits and spices.
Medium body and carbonation. Sticky and creamy in the mouth.
Long aftertaste, quite dry, some metallic hints in the end.
A very good blond ale, better than other Belgian ales in this style. Nothing extraordinary, but more than decent, reliable and enjoyable, easy to drink, easy to pair with food.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur blonde, mousse qui tient bien, odeur de pain, de houblon, goût sur le houblon, le fruit,l’amertume présente en fin de bouche, plutôt bonne Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2016
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has sweet malt, orange, yeast. Flavour is quite off and really strong. Mixed feelings.
