minutemat (5129) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
330ml bottle from the beer palais on the French / Belgian border at Watou. Drunk on the Calais - Dover ferry. A great example of a Belgian blonde with its distinctive, sweet "savour me" taste. About 3000 times tastier than anything the ferry had to offer.

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
Lijkt op appelsap met witte schuimkraag. Aroma zoet van perzik en wat friszure appel. Smaak is parfumig met wat citroen. Eerst wat zuur/bitter, eindigt zoetig met een wat kunstmatige parfumsmaak. Weinig tot geen body, amper koolzuur. Middelmatig bier, hoef ik niet nog een keer. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corkyrory66 (1800) - BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2013
Une blonde simple qui titre 6,5 % abv. Couleur dor soutenu. Clart nette. Bulles moyennes grosses, partout, moyennement vives. Mousse blanc cass, assez crmeuse, qui vient napper 3 mm. Armes de levure, malt, houblon (quoi de mieux? mais on va voir que cela ne suffit pas toujours), et du pain en croute. 1re bouche assez crmeuse sur des fruits blancs, de houblon, et un malt blanc simple qui ressort. Arrire-bouche frache, avec une pointe damertume. 2me bouche un peu plus pleine, mais tendant sur le houblon en arrire-bouche. 3me bouche un peu en retrait sur le pain frais. Le malt sefface quasiment, et les saveurs deviennent nettement aqueuses La longueur est douce, tendre mais sans vraiment de personnalit. La levure est douce mais trop simple, voire simpliste.... Lalcool est bien dos pour une blonde simple, mais il na pas beaucoup de saveurs soutenir, donc il pdale dans la choucroute . La finale ne peut rien relever l-dedans . Conclusion: tant qu prendre une Pater Lieven blonde, prenez une triple et la question est rgle trs simplement, votre avantage et lavantage du brasseur....

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy golden with a big white head. Lively carbonation. Yeasty peachy aroma. Sweet taste with very low bitterness. Short aftertaste. While not bad it doesnt leave a big impression, tastewise as wel as memory wise.

Golden brown pour, i inch head, aroma of belgian yeast, malts and a bit of spice with light bitter finish. Lacking a bit of bite but decent enough.

Shaney (2423) - Kln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2012
#733 Goldgelbes Blond mit mig hefigem Aroma; merkwrdigerweise ohne Fruchtnoten. Dnner Antrunk, leicht an Weibier erinnernder Mittelteil bevor es minimal hopfig im Abgang wird. Durchaus trinkbar, aber aufgrund der ausgeprgten Aromenarmut ein absolut unterdurchschnittliches Blond! Test vom 12.3.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,9,9,9 - 8,95

77ships (9201) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ Kulminator -2009 Vintage. Golden citrus, hazy with little white bubbles head. Smell is citrus, lemonade, sweet spices, rather lemonade heavy. Taste is sweet lemonade and citrus, sugar, lightly bitter toilet cleaner, air refresher, some spices in the back. Medium bodied - is this the age? Totally not good this stuff.
