Gekregen van een collega op 9-11-2016. En geproefd op 11-2-2017. Viven Blond is een blond en ietwat wazig biertje. Het geeft veel wit schuim met een dik-wollige structuur. Het zakt evenwel in elkaar tot een dun fijn laagje en het blijft wel sterk aan het glas kleven. Weinig pareling te zien van middelmatig grootte CO2 belletjes. Het weinig uitgesproken aroma is licht moutig en fruitig met banaan , peer en perzik. De smaak is eerst wat licht zoetig en dan komt er een beetje hopbitterheid. In de mond geeft Viven Blond een volle smaak en is hij ook lichtjes bitterdroog, hij is volmondig van textuur en normaal prikkelend, alles gaat goed samen dus toch een harmonieus biertje. De nasmaak vloeit lichtjes uit en is zeer licht bitter, wat zoetig en licht droog. Het is geen uitschieter maar als dorstlesser wel perfekt
