I think I had a wrong bottle or something.
There was a lot of head. To much carbonation in the beginning.
After a while when the carbonation was fewer the taste of the beer was really watery and light.
An abrupt finish and not a very special taste.
I should try this one again cause I think it can score better than this experience.

Hazy medium yellow, white head that showed some lace. Very yeasty aroma, buttery, with a bit of fruit. Mild maltiness with a sweet finish. Not really much flavour, but the yeast sure shines through. A bit harsh in the finish, but not overpowering. Light body, fairly high carbonation. Overall it's okay, but once was enough.

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, at 6.5%abv.; BB 07/08/14, served chilled in a stemmed goblet.

Appearance: pours a very clear, dark golden colour coming with a thin off-white foamy head and rather light but constant carbonation.
Smell: light-coloured prune-dominated aroma, edged with very pale malts, sweet lemons or Goldings’ aroma, and a weird old-rusty note. Besides these elements, even after a very good swirl is there very little to come through. Not nice and very simplistic.
Taste: quite fizzy, the taste is bitter-sweet and lightly estery & acidic-fruity, featuring light-coloured (lager) malts, dried grassiness, lemon-ness, prunes, overripe fruitiness (types unknown), as well as a semi-dry and chewy-spicy palate of hop bitterness to linger in the finish, along with a belated entry of alc. warmth.
Mouthfeel & Overall: really very normal, mundane, and slightly watery at the end of each sip, this sufficiently refreshing, albeit quite fizzy, medium-bodied pale beer doesn’t show a properly complex flavour profile, or maybe being simplistic and its almost Pilsner-like quality is what it meant to achieve. Alas, this is not my cup of tea.

330 ml. bottle. Gloden to orange colour, with a big creamy white head that sticks to the class and lasts for a good while. Smell of bubblegum, cloves, tropical fruits. Medium body, light palate. Taste is just the same as smell: bubblegum, clove, tropical fruits, spices.

Appearance: Served up on tap in a Tongerlo chalice at an unnamed cafe in Framerie, Belgium. Golden orange color with an off white head. It looks darker than many blonde Belgian beers.

Smell: Light malty scent with citrus, hay, and sand.

Taste: Big malty taste to start off. A bit over carbonated so it is rather spritzy. Some citrus, sesame, and spiciness. It strikes me as rather plain and uninteresting. All of the flavors are very light and fast. No flavor stands out or impreses me.

Mouthfeel: Mostly smooth and clean. There is a bit of harshness on the back of my palate. It may be from the overcarbonation. It's refreshing on a hot afternoon.

Drinkability: A decent soft Belgian taste, not terrible for sure, but not memorable either.

Bottle notes 6.5%

Pours a three finger head for a modest pour. Golden/straw body.

Aromas of Beligian yeast/sugars, some marizipan.

Taste is dry and complex. Some Champagne notes. Some mandarin/tangerine. Dry finish, and refeshing. Let down by a watery element.

Mouthfeel is light

All in all not bad in a crowded Belgian arena.

Nose fresh and highly enjoyable reminiscent marmalade, oranges in particular. The draft is fairly balanced, medium-bodied and round on the palate with a subtle flavor of lemonade. The aftertaste is fine but the yeast in the end leaves a bitter bottle. A refreshing lager, A bit below the Leffe Blonde, but lacks a little flavor in the mouth to leave a souvenir.

Brown 33cl bottle, best before Nov 2007, drank March 2007.

Poured into a Straffe Hendrik bowl glass, without any sediment leaving the bottle, the head suffered because of my slow pour, but it still produced a nice foaming white/off white crown on the beer. the body was an orange, tangarine colour, slight haze which made it look cloudy.

Aroma of yeasts and citrus fruits, mostly lemon or maybe limes. The label claims it has a honey aroma, I couldn't detect it until I read it was there.

Sourness at first, fizzy too, the yeast aroma carries on into the taste, no honey flavour!

The label also mentions maize as an ingrediant, this may well appear in the mouthfeel, aftertaste, which is fairly weak really.

Not the best blonde I've had, but I would have another of these, I won't hunt for one, but drink another, I would.

Pours a slightly hazy but bright golden, medium white head forms, sticks around, laces nicely. Smell is sweet honey, citrus, yeast and slight sourness. Taste is malty, with grains, honey, citrus, orange peel, clean bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to low bodied, with medium carbonation. Not a bad blond.

I just bought this beer from my favorite liquor store.

A - A bright copper colored beer with a white head that disappears pretty quickly. There is a thin white layer left behind.

S - A smell of normal strength of lemon, pine and yeast.

T - Fairly dry flavor, but balanced with hop bitterness. A fresh beer with light lemon extracts.

M - Medium to high carbonation, after that the beer is slightly sticky. At the end a bitter finish.

O - A good beer but not impressive but nice and good to drink.
