Second review 9/19/04

I had a few of these babies in Spain this summer, and, well, it is not the most Belgian of beers, but I find it quite drinkable and smooth. Upgraded.


Served in a 330cl bottle. Smelled like a Belgian beer -- kind of rich and somewhat fruity and malty, but the taste was very light and fairly indistinctive. It has an amber color and the head poured pretty full, but died soon after. The carbonation was light and the mouth feel nice. It had a pleasant finish with a small hint of hops. A drinkable beer.

4/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: A light golden transparency with a thick cloudy and resilient head that laces well as you progress. "Clearly" a filtered ale, not bottle conditioned.

Smell: Lovely, delicately spiced banana bread-like aroma. A harmonious balance of the yeast derived esters and phenols.

Taste: A warm sweet biscuit-like malt flavor leads the charge followed by fleeting notes of soft orange and clove.

Mouthfeel: Finishes like a lager--clean and crisp and dry, but with enough substance and alcohol (6.6% ABV) to lend itself as a medium bodied ale.

Overall: A very pleasant and clean beer. Many seem to call it "simple", but this beer has a lot of character for a "blonde". There is a harmony of subtle flavors at play--not easy to pull off. In that respect, it's far from just "simple".
