Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the brew is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice thin drape. Just the looks like any other Belgian ale. The smell of the beer is nice. It is like most Belgian Ale’s. There is a nice malty base, providing a good sweetness. I also smell a biscuits touch. Nice. There also is a lovely bitter and fruity hop aroma. The hops have a nice citrusy and herbal aroma. The beer is more hoppy than the most Belgian Ale’s. The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste lovely strong malts, giving a nice sweetness and a nice biscuit touch. There is also a nice bitterness of the hops. There is also some yeastiness in the beer. The strong yeast really give the beer a Belgian character. Nice beer, but not extremely special. Just a good Belgian beer, like there are more. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium body, medium high carbonation and a nice bitter finish with some alcohol warmt. All in all, a nice Belgian Ale, but not extremely special.

33cl bottle at De Biertuin, Amsterdam on 20-Jan-2017. Clear golden pale colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma is slightly herbal, with citrus, grain and Belgian yeast. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of sweet biscuit malt, grain, lemon peel and slightly floral. Light sweetness and refreshing.

Long time since I drank this. Bottle pours dark-golden to orange, with white head, that quickly diminishes. Malty aroma with sweetness of light fruits and caramel. Taste medium sweet (also these light fruits & caramel) en light bitterness. Low carbo. An OK blond, but nothing special to me.

Dorada turbia, espuma poco duradera. Aroma acaramelado, notas florales. En boca muy agradable, ricamente malteada. Base dulce, pero equilibrada, floral y levadura belga. Gas punzante, picante, y paso facil.

Quando la apri, senti proprio tutto il Belgio che ti invade il naso, tutte le peculiarità, tipiche del paese di manneken pis, e secondo me è anche una bella bevuta.

Bijl (810) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
Amber geel, heel licht crèmekleurige schuimkraag die snel inzakt, troebel. Aroma: Karamel, moutig, licht fruitig/ Sinaasappelschil , kruidig en wat grassig, hop. Smaak: Zoete karamel mouten, brood, bittere prikkelige hops, bloemig/ floraal, aardig kruidige en tussendoor ook een fruitige appel hint. Goeie netelige bitter en Belgische gist. Body is medium tot vol, mondgevoel is actief door de koolzuur en Spicey hops, afdronk is bitter droog.... Ik vind het een heerlijke blond....gewoon goed!
