Had this shipped from Amsterdam to my front door and crack it open today.
Served out of a wide mouthed chalice.
Reviewed with the help of wheatman106 and Jimmy
Appearance - The first thing about this beer is its carbonation, it seemed endless. The head formation was thick and frothy. It lingered for at least 25 minutes and stayed tight leaving a magnificent head of about 1 finger. The color is a slightly cloudy, golden and yellow leaving a web-like lacing which was quite pleasing.
Smell - This brew gave me hints of Belgium yeast, citrus, slight traces of hops and malt.
Taste - Surprisingly, as opposed to the hints of malt the initial taste that came though was the Belgium yeast and hops, but the hops were not over bearing. I would say this brew is balanced but in a sense bland from start to finish.
Mouthfeel - Upon entry this brew is very light in body and leaves a nice beer mustache. Although contrary to the carbonation it flattens and mellows out and leave no after taste.
Drinkability - The drinkability of this beer is average to high but the mellow flavors and the availability make me seek other blonds to satiate my palates desires.

A: Cloudy yellow brown oxidated pineapple juice colour, a finger of creamy yellowish white head. Sexy whipped cream like lacing and a ton of yellowish floaties settled after a few minutes.
S: Cereal malts, sweet, light, fruity
T: A song in my mind goes lalalalala- its so fresh, sweet, and balances with bitter hops, caramel and a little fruitiness, slight blue cheese like bite.
M: Thick, slightly syrupy, bready body.
O: Drank at In De Vred, Vleteren, Nov 27, 2013. I am loving this experience. Like a ride through farmers fields to get here. I had a plate of their cheese and bread with it.
