My wife and I have had this many times over years, in those four handled and then three handled mugs and nowadays the glass. This write up is from a 33cl bottle opened in the lovely and hidden away bar called Belleman, in Brugge on 1st Feb 2014. The Belleman's beer list may not be huge, but it's worth getting out the centre of Brugge and having a slow relaxing beer in a quiet bar now and again, it's ideal for that.

Pours a golden colour with a pure white crown of bubbles that tried to hang around.

The aroma is a blend of yeastiness, light malts and floral hop notes, with a mild fruitiness for good measure.

It is a little sweeter than the nose suggests, but this isn't a proper sweet beer, there is plenty of hop content to prevent the malts taking over completely. It's in fact a nice mixture of flavours similar to the aromas and most enjoyable. It isn't going to blow your socks off with anything different or strong, but it's easy to drink and a very pleasant respite from some of Belgium's heavy hitters: which is why we often have one when out on a mission in Brugge or the Belgian coast.

Bottle into Charles Quint glass, from Het Beste Biertje in Málaga, Spain.

Appearance: clear yellow/blonde with 1 finger white head, lots of lacing

Smell: herbal spices mixed with belgian yeast, slight coriander presence

Taste: Huge belgian yeast bomb, with some coriander and slight bubble gum notes. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and the roasted barley backbone really shines through. Not overly complex, very refreshing.

Mouthfeel: average carbonation, light bodied

Overall: great blond ale from Belgian, nothing special that stands out from other in te style, a little bland but very refreshing.
