Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 01/11/ A blonde beer with a bright white head. A good Belgian ale with peppery lemony hop notes and good yeasty flavours. A slight spicy note. Easy drinking with some banana and coriander notes. Good.

33cl bottle. Pours light golden colour with a nice head, that lasts. Average blond, malty and yeasty, however it has a bit of that "corny" sweetness, that I dont enjoy. It is nonetheless quite easy to drink, thanks to the medium carbonation and low bitterness, and has a nice mouthfeel to it.

The blonde one in this standard Belgian abbey beer series, strange that it has escaped my attention so far as it must have been around for many a year now... Bottle from De Vidts in Sint-Niklaas. Medium thick, regularly shaped, snow white, moussy head slowly dissipating in the middle, over a clear and very purely golden blonde beer with an 'old gold' hue to it and visible strings of sparkling throughout, turning lighly hazy with sediment. Aroma of dried banana slices, old bread, freshly ironed cloth, cold omelette somewhere, dusty old coriander seed, powder sugar, dried peaches, straw, wet paper, chicken corn, honey, dried camomile flowers. Sweetish onset, banana ester with a chewing gum note to it but bearable, apple peel and slight apricot accents, dim sourishness underneath; sparkling carbonation but very standard for this style, slick and bit glueish mouthfeel. Very cereally, creamy and very soapy corn-ish middle, sweetish with residual sugars but not cloying, straightforward with a thin caramelly edge to it; leads to a very softly spicy and hoppy finish, floral as in dried field flowers or camomile tea, with minerally and metallic notes lingering and a soft, mellow end bitterish note alongside some soapy coriander - which I assume is the so-called 'gruut' they are referring to in the description. Plain, simple and hugely cliché as expected, but nothing really wrong or off-putting here; feels a tad metallic, too sweet and underhopped as usual for this kind of beers, but drinkable and in any case a lot better than Leffe Blonde or Grimbergen Blond - if you must have a taste of stereotypical Belgian blonde cloaked in a monk's frock, take this one instead of the more popular, aforementioned examples. Expected even worse, to be completely honest...

W aromacie kukurydza, słody, zboża. Z wyglądu złote, klarowne, z ładną białą pianą. W smaku estrowe, fenolowe, brzoskwiniowe, morelowe, trochę żelaza na finiszu, goryczka ziołowa. Pijalność wysoka, aksamitne, choć też przy tym wodniste. Ogólnie przyzwoite, choć aromat bardzo słaby

Miły (73) - Kielce, POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Wygląd: Barwa złota do jasno złotej, delikatnie opalizująca. Piana bujna koloru białego, drobnopęcherzykowa oraz miejscami ze średnimi pęcherzykami, opada do trwałego pierścienia pozostawiając w miarę ładny lacing. Aromat: Mało lotny, trochę fenoli (goździka i min. przypraw), delikatne estry (banany i min. guma balonowa). Nuta słodowa. Wyczuwalny dość silny, nieprzyjemny aldehyd octowy w postaci emulsji do farby. Smak: Fenole (przyprawy i goździki), troszeczkę estrów (jabłko, banan), słodowe. Wysycenie średnie, treściwość średnia w stronę niskiej, goryczki brak. Finisz lekko wytrawno kwaskowaty. Piwo zakupione w Lidlu - termin do 29/09/18r. Aromat i smak płaski, słaby i w dodatku z wadą w postaci aldehydu. Słabiutko.

Bottle. Aroma- Belgian apricot, with subtle herbal note. Pale, a bit hazy, with a ultra-high, but short-lasting head. Taste- pleasant, sweet apricot, but nothing more. No alcohol, Low-bodied, with a medium-high carbonation. Simple, but tasty Blonde.
