Shared a 75cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malts and lightly fruit. Average frizzy carbonation with a light body. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet, a bit watery. Overall, a nice beer.

domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a clear blond beer with minimal saturation. Has a big white head that disappears quickly. Smells Spicy, coriander and malty. Tastes bitter, and spicy. Leaves a nice fresh and bitter palate. Can feel the alcohol well. Great beer!

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Good pour. Lively, champagne effervescence. Color and clarity no different than a Stella. Nothing to really distinguish the taste from the traditional blonde (Leffe, et. al). The palate is a little thin, but leaves the tightly clustered bubbles alive. Nothing to offend - nothing to please. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml Bottle. Clear golden, off-white head. Nose is all about malts. Taste: malty, yeast, fruity touch, hop bitter. Overall: one-dimensional blond, bitter, slightly hoppy, nothing great.

rosenbergh (10895) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
330 ml bottle. F. BB 03/03/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Door number 11 in my advent calendar gave me this one. Cloudy golden colour with a big fluffy white head. Belgian yeast, mild spices, malt and some liquorice in the aroma. The flavour is mild yeast, malt, mild bitter notes and hints of spices. Rather easy and drinkable for a 7.5% brew. Nothing unforgettable.

Green fruit and sweets aroma. Decent head. Malty, some hoppy bitterness and sadly some metallic flavours. Okay carbonation.

Rune (11502) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2013
Many thanks to Finn for sharing a 250ml bottle. Pours a frothy white head that stayed well. Not much lacing. Clear golden body. Dry fruity aroma with honey sweetness. Taste of dried fruits, yeast, spices and caramel malts, supported by warming alcohol on the swallow. Mouthfilling (at Finns place in Troms 03.12.2013).
