14/20 it's nice but about on par with a leffe blonde without as much of a boozy taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luneylane (226) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 19, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium drunk at Dad’s place while home on leave. Aroma: cereal, sweet herbs. Appearance: hazy light gold, 5 mm. of bubbles. Palate: full-bodied and creamy, lively carbonation. Long, predominantly sweet finish with candy. Taste: sweet and bitter, nicely balanced. Very memorable, particularly for such a relatively low ABV.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2017 Strong aroma on this blonde. Good balance, no overbearing sweetness. Great example of the style but not exactly in a league of its own like the hype would suggest.
