Pretty good white ale.
L: Hazy / cloudy orange color with a light head. Head settled fairly rapidly. Similar to many witbiers.
S: Coriander and orange and lemom - pretty light scent but pleasing
T: Pretty light beer. A lot of carbonation makes the overall taste a little boring
F: Carbonation dominates but keeps it a pretty light feel
O: Acceptable but a little bland. Would drink on a warm summer day and enjoy.

Taste has a whisp of tart Apple, citrus, yeah, muddled tea is a good description

Sterkens Blonde

Pours a light golden color with little to no head. Aroma has grape and a bit of orange blossom honey. The taste is well balanced a bit of wheat and Belgian yeast fruitiness. Light bitterness. Tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: cloudy orange, barely passes light; persistent, deep eggshell meringue head
S: coriander, yeast, orange zest, lemon
T: muddled tea, lemon/orange zest
M: dry finish, medium-bodied, dishwater
O: Not bad, but not terribly complementary, either. Too dry, not orangy enough, disappointing flavor, could be more crisp or more rich.

Sterkens White Ale has a very thick, spongy, white head, a cloudy (which becomes even cloudier when the bottom 3rd is swished and poured in), fiercely bubbly appearance, and no lacing left on the glass. The aroma is mildly spicy, with faint coriander, banana, and citrus, and a bit of sweet, white bread. Taste is of those elements, with an overarching tap water note. Mouthfeel is mostly watery, and Sterkens White Ale finishes semi-wet and easy drinking.
