Bottle bought in Brussels today with Feb. 2016 best-by. Cloudy copper-gold, visibly effervescent in the liquid to replenish a bond-white head of tightly packed bubbles. Little smell, just a whiff of grass, mint, toast, banana. Bitter attack I didn't expect, more flinty than floral, with a bit of coriander and apricot but not much thereof. Something miss, or off? The mouthfeel is substantial and a bit drying.

A dark golden beer with a settling head. Carbonation is medium.

Smell is fruity and has notes of melon, lemon and lychee. This yeast adds a light cork smell and accentuates the maltiness.

Taste is light malty with a light dextrinous taste. The beer has a fruity taste, which reminds of lychee and melon. The bitterness is low, which does the drinkability good. Mouthfeel is a little sticky.

I bought this beer a week ago at Dranken Geers nearby Gent in Belgium. Best before december 2012.

This is one good blond beer. Very tasty and very drinkable. Poured in my Struise glass this beer looks good with it's three finger broken white head and the yellow fluid with lots of carbonation.

The smell is less, it made me think of new cardboard....strange smell but not unpleasant. The taste however is just good. A bit like some Dutch blond beers.
