330ml bottle bought at HKBWEX in Mong Kok.
Looks: Translucent golden colour with thin ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing and fizzy small carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with perfume, vanilla, banana, mandarin, cake, bubblegum, floral, candi sugar, cinnamon, strong spices, herbs, biscuits, strong Bel yeast, lemon and grass.
Taste: Medium sweet full malt, with strong metallic, strong citrus, strong mandarin peels, alcohol, liquorices, floral, sugar, strong woody spices, strong herbs, dry biscuits, strong Bel yeast, lemon and medium bitter grassy hops.
Body: Mid to full body; Slick and smooth palate.
Mouth Feel: Full maltyness in a solid and fairly creamy background. Very Bel yeasty and citrusy, with intensely spiced with dried mandarin / orange peels. Quite boozy with strong liquorices, flowery with medium sweetness. Very woody herbal biscuity with strong lemon to round. Very spunky!
Hoppiness: floral, cinnamon, strong spices, herbs, lemon and grass in nose. Strong citrus, floral, woody spices, strong herbs, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - hops and liquorices - is fairly strong for a lasting, mid to strong astringent sweet-bitter malty finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Very herbal spicy and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is probably one of the most colorful and extrovert Belgian Blonde I've had: very spicy with strong doses of cinnamon, citrus peels and herbs, lots of hops with edgy liquorices, all warpped by strong Bel yeastyness. It stand just as tall as the Grand Cru and Triple. Excellent!

Very nice aroma of fruity, citrussy hops. Gets you to wanting a decent sip. Very appealing nose that is enforced by the beautiful appearence. Pours light golden, hazy with thick, frothy foam. Imagine a warm sunny terrace in may or june with this beer: perfect! The taste is not surprising: immediate fruity and citrussy Arrival, followed by a dry, hoppy bitterness. Not very deep or overwhelming, but a very nice drinkable freshness when you’re thirsty and the weather is hot. Short and bitter, slightly dissapointing aftertaste. This is the least appealing part. But Good strength and well made: cheers! MeadTeam9 (114) - - JAN 4, 2018
