Ottima belgian ale, colore leggermente ambrato, schiuma bianca pannosa. Tantissima frutta e leggere note di agrume. Va giù bene.

From Tilburgs Biersfestival. Golden copper, white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, citrus and spices, extremely soft mouthfeel, taste of ripe fruits, peach, spices, citric hops. Perfect balance between the typical belgian malty and yeasty character and the hops, probably american hops?

Bière classée en belgian ale, mais qui est bien décrite par son brasseur comme une golden ale. Niveau abv de 6,5 % et ebu de 19 (on vole très bas, même en étant altuiste …). Mon exemplaire était à 2 mois après sa date, et avait été brassé chez Gaverhopke. Couleur ambre roux, avec un voile de levure (fort gushing à l’ouverture). Bulles fines, partout, à montée lente. Mousse blanc cassé, qui tombe très vite, voile de surface. Arômes de fruits blancs mûrs, mirabelle, pointe de rhum blanc et framboise. 1ère bouche très fluide à l’entame mal organisée. Arrière-bouche très courte. 2ème informe, sans direction, à part quelques baies blanches. Arrière-bouche aussi courte. 3ème plate, vide, sans aucune organisation. Arrière-bouche sans caractère. La longueur ne peut rien dans cette débandade générale (même si elle est altruiste ..). Jambes fines, longues. Levure très simple. Alcool qui ne participe en rien au travail. Finale inaperçue. CONCLUSION : Cette bière n’est ni une belgian, ni une golden ale, et donner une cote très basse, c’est parfois être altruiste …

rumore (766) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 23, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours relatively hazy loaded gold with white foam. Aroma is caramel and some citrus. Body is medium-dense with good carbonation. Taste is well balanced, with some predominance of bitterness. Finish, however, is long and sweet.

White Pony’s ’golden ale’ but correctly classified here as a Belgian ale, because that’s what it is (a Belgian blonde, actually). Light gushing upon opening. Yellowish white, creamy, dense head still breaking open in a few minutes, but retaining well around the edges and leaving light lacing. Colour is a misty orange blonde with a ’fog’ of yeast floating in the heart of it; after adding the deposit, I get a muddy, soupy brownish orange. Very estery and very ’Belgian’ aroma of overripe cantaloupe and peach, a ton of sweet honey, persimmon, bubblegum, caramel syrup (prominently so), banana, strawberry ice cream, liquorice, orange candy, apple cake, burning hay, lots of spicy phenols (very suggestive, ethereal impressions of cloves, vanilla and mint; in warming up, a medicinal ’band aid’ odour joins this array of ethereal spices), dried ginger, roses and fried egg but nothing disturbing. Sweet, even somewhat sugary onset, fortunately not cloying too much and countered by a ’deep’, dull and basic sourishness which will persist till the end without giving the impression of any infection; canned apricot, strawberry, melon and orange sweetness, with medium carbonation and lean and smooth body, yeasty spiciness clearly there and even tingling a bit here and there, dryish in the finish but still with lingering sugars, honeyish and very caramelly malt base, toasted accent in the end, leading towards a phenolicly spicy finish with long-lasting caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness as well as a faint impression of earthy hop bitterness. After adding the deposit, the unmistakable yeast ’powderiness’ is there as well. Clearly a malt-forward thirst quencher, another Italian micro brew with entirely Belgian profile. The sweetness is a bit too much and the hop bitterness is clearly too low - the latter resulting in a finish with rather ’watery’ texture, fading away all too quickly and not leaving a lasting impression; the remaining mouthfeel is a bit resiny and sticky, but obviously more so from residual sugars than from hops. Not completely unpleasant in general, but a bit bland and too much aimed at the masses, who have gotten used to overly sweet blondes throughout the years. Fermentation has not worked out well either, this beer looks too ’soupy’ and spreads too many phenols around, so with some technical improvement, a more generous hop dosis and less of the boring candi syrup sweetness, this could already become a lot better.

lello4ever (1193) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
White Pony, un birrificio italiano. Una ale in stile belga particolarmente adatta all’estate. Dorata con una schiuma di media compattezza, aroma fresco, di malto e frutta. Bevibilissima, scende che è un amore e la finisci senza accorgertene. Fruttata, leggera, davvero ben riuscita.

C’est une bonne bière mais qui manque un peu de corps: au palais ne tiens pas et elle n’a pas beaucoup de complexité. On sent bien l’eau.

@tap (shows br. Anders, not ’t Gaverhopke). Pale golden-copper, nice fruity aroma. Taste is very balanced with fruits and hops, clean with few esters. well made!

Een van de beste bieren dat ik de laatste dagen geprobeerd hebt, een heel zachte maar uitgesproken smaak
