3.25/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

33cl bottle poured into an official Maredsous chalice. It has a a very clear golden straw colour, with a good amount of carbonation rising up to the top. There isn't much of a head to talk about. It's just a thin layer on top. It's an appetizing-looking beer, albeit somewhat ordinary.

The aroma is flowery and balanced, with green apple coming through most prominently. There is a slight syrupy-sugar smell as well. Good aroma, but again, nothing outstanding.

The taste begins some light sweetness and a surprisingly malty backbone. Much of the fruity aroma is absent in the flavour. It finishes with a hint of hoppy bitterness and a smooth malty cascade. It's very drinkable and has a medium level of carbonation.

Overall, this is a less-than-stellar offering. It's nice, but forgettable. I'd probably even prefer an Affligem Blonde to this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Golden, a bit of sediment, somewhat hazy, with a white head.

S: Fruity Belgian yeast esters dominate the nose, and it smells very tasty.

T: Those same fruity notes typical of Belgian yeast, delicious!

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: This was maybe my first Belgian ale, and I think it's a great introduction to Belgian ales. It's not imposing to look at with tons of sediment, nor is it an ugly quad. It doesn't have a very high abv, it tastes good, very fruit-forward and typical of the esters of Belgian yeast. Recommended, especially if you have never had a Belgian ale before.

Uma boa cerveja. Ela é mais leve e tranquila. Dourada e de sabor e aroma moderados, porém possui seu equilíbrio e condescendência com a proposta. Uma notável representante das Belgians Blond Ales, talvez até uma das melhores nesse estilo não tão badalado.
