Bottle, 300 ml,into a tulip glass. ABV 6%
I had this a couple a years ago when I visited the island of Texel. On a winter. With lots of snow everywhere. And still managed to be beautiful. On to the beer. Blond, intense golden yellow colour on the body, with lots of activity in it. Big white ad thick head, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing around the glass.
Aroma has a malty backbone but also a bit of citrus and lots of flower aromas. Very pleasant and appealing.
Sweet taste, with lots of malts at first, but after that a mild, but very pleasant flowery bitterness, that turns to slighty fruity on the aftertaste, with some peach notes.
Thin body, light carbonation and light dryness on the palate.
Overall, very enjoyable beer.

Kruiden, bloemig. Mooi goudkleurig bier. Smaak is minder goud. Beetje flauw. Prima standaard bier. LomYst (880) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2013
ugly bitterness, especially in the finish... aroma has caramel, some bread, flawed malts... quickly fading head, full of particles... again a mediocre beer from texels, i’m starting to long for a belgian blonde after drinking all these... TheJvd (1291) - NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2013
Bottle, gushes a bit. Pours clear golden with a large white head and some yest particles floating in it. Aroma is some malt, grassy hops and cardboard. Taste is quite sweet with some bready malts and a light bitterness in the aftertaste. I suspect this bottle is a bit old, but the date on the bottle cap is unreadable. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a hazy light brown. Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malts. Caramel and bread in the flavor.

, 300ml, Head: white foam. Colour: hazy, golden. Aroma: hops, floral, malt. Taste: bitter-sweet. Palate: refreshing, bitter-sweet finish, medium CO2. Overall: nice
Bottle at Huppel The Pub, Den Haag. Poured a clear amber with a thin glass hugging head. The aroma is crisp and yeasty. The flavour follows on from the aroma with lots of Dutch/Belgian yeast and a little malt on the palate. It’s crisp and refreshing, but a little bland. DJoer (1291) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2013
Clear golden colour, medium white head, sweet honey like smell but not to sweet and also some hints of citrus, bitter unexpected taste but also a soft sweet honey taste in the background MaartenRF10 (1950) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy golden brown, white head. Typical Texels beer. Spicy, buttery, some citrus fruits and their typical creamy texture. Some yeast. paulvanpelt (627) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2013
Lichtamber, goud en troebel bier met kleine, witte schuimkraag. Zacht en romig, aroma van hop, malt, brood, honing. Smaak is bitterzoet. Lekker zomers, goede dorstlesser.
