Image on Label: Mayan woman with some hops and red sun in the background
ABV: 6%
Ingredients according to label: water, barley malt, starch from Maya seitan, unrefined cane sugar, herbs, yeast.
Expiry date: 18NOV11 (almost one year expired but bought it just few weeks ago. Didn't expect this from the Bierkoning)
LOT: n/a

murky orange, coarse bubbled head
no carbonation visible

smells of booze, hops and some floral notes

nice balance of sweet and bitter, but I do not taste the added seitan or the herbs.

enough carbonation to be refreshing.

a typical blonde with nothing to write home about except that it still tastes quite well after it is expired for almost a year and that it contains almost only organic ingredients.

Did the other reviewers drink the same beer as I did five minutes ago?

This is really a good beer! And I don't recognize anything of the ones who criticized it so much. Maybe this is the best (light) blond I know!

L: gold; little trouble; nice lasting top;
S: vanilla, floral and herbal notes, interesting;
T: round, fresh, a tiny citrus, fora and herbs;
M: very good! I lacks the bready stuff of other blonds, which I usually don´t like, a very tiny bitterishness, light alcohol is great, very drinkable
O: Jesserhofke calls this a party beer. And that´s very true. Well done!

330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Golden color, chill haze appearance. Brief, white in color, crown. A single ring remains on top. Aromas as expected from a Belgian: crystal malt, candies, lemon, sugar, yeast & spices. Tangerine notes. Warming, sugary & spiced flavor at first sip. Slightly orangish bitter. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Lasting fruity finish.

19th May 2012: 0.75 litre cork and caged bottle, well in date, poured into three glasses.

Lager looking brew, clear and crisp with a slight haze in the last glass as a minute amount of sediment managed to leave the bottle. Thin white head added to the lager/pilsner appearance.

The nose was subdued: light hints of bread and yeast with a sprinkling of malt.

The taste was boring: a dry and bitter finish didn’t help the overall experience at all it didn’t even start off well. Weak and a little thin body wise also. Let’s just say we didn’t get on too well and I’ll not be having another.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

More or less hoppy smell. A dry mouth, but both also evokes a bit syrupy cereal soggy, which is not pleasant. Not really unique flavor. Just a finish virtually nonexistent. Far from the standards of this style of beer. Too heavy to be easily drunk. Too bland to be enjoyed.

Serving type: on-tap
