L- Dark gold, Quite cloudy with a couple of small particles floating up/down in the middle. Pours with 5mm fine-bubble white head that holds up well.
S- Quite mild but as expected from a Blonde, with some spicing.
T- Zesty front, hints of citrus fruits, gentle spicing, carries into a richer puddingy finish.
F- Carbonation in the mouth is good. For a 6.5% beer it remains refreshing. It is over towards the slightly piquant/dryer side, whilst it's subtle rich foundation underpins it.
O- Seems like a good Blonde, typical of the style. I could mini-session this until I perhaps had had enough of the spices. Expensive to buy in London though, so unlikely to be something I'll be looking out for again.
Bought from Planet Organic, Westbourne Grove, London W2 £2.99/330ml bottle. BB August/2020
Bottle conditioned = pour carefully.

Pours a decent cream head that fades to a creamy surface. A nice cloudy golden/light orange color; sticky lace on glass. A nice yeasty and pineapple scent, along with some candied yams. It has a sweet malt, yeast, and fruit flavor, balanced by a slightly spicy and peachy aftertaste; some alcohol in there as well. A medium body with carbonation on the higher side; crisp and refreshing. Overall, it's interesting because of the fruity esters and yeasty character. A Belgian beer I'd revisit.

A: Straw yellow body and a healthy white head which leaves thick, white lacing.

S: Very peppy, lots of esters, Bassetts Refreshers, citrus and a wee bit of coriander.

T: Snappy, dry and bitter but not a great deal of upfront flavour. Interestingly the bitterness doesn't last till the finish. I get ginger beer and a dry, whisky-like, highball quality. Coriander is present but not prominent. As it warms there's a green tea flavour and some saaz-like mustiness. Brown bread and Bassetts Refreshers in the finish. Despite all these interesting qualities it's not exactly a taste sensation. There's no upfront flavour or heirarchy. It's really quite mellow.

M: The mouthfeel is very creamy yet full of snap.

O: It's not a world class brew.

Champagne blonde with a stream of bubbles and creamy, snow white head that rims like mad.
Flowers, wax, banana and some baguette flesh on the nose.
Sugar cookie dough, white pear, mild lemon peel and herbs with light noble spice.
Pastis finish and slight waxy linger.
Light, creamy, round.

Sweet, light, soft and clean take on the style. On the downside, yeast presence is minimal and hops could cut stronger. Nothing to chase, but nice entry for the gluten intolerant.
