Medium white head on a clear golden body. Banana, peppery yeast, grains, honey. Medium to high sweetness with an esthery, mildly bitter finish. High carbonation, a hint of bitterness. Sweet, sweet gold. Very sweet. No balance whatsoever.

Refreshing and flavorful blonde. It's a great version of the lighter Belgian ale.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium top of white head that disolves rapidly, with some lacings on the glass. Aroma is off bread,banan,apricot,oranges and vanilla. Flavour is sweet and fruity with bready notes in the back, gets more hints of spices in the middle while it finishes off dry with a decent lenght in the aftertaste.It has amedium body with a lively carbonation, and crisp and clean mouthfeel. Considering that this beer is so easyly available around in Europe is quite a good option to buy it. Is not an extremly exiting beer, but it taste like a classic belgian blonde. Would sure drink it again.

This was my first Belgian blond and it really won me over. Had it on tap at the recommendation of my server. Sweet but not sour, almost honey flavour. Easy drinker. Will try again!
