Draught @ ’t Pakhuis. Bright orange with little white head. Nose is rotting oranges & spices, mouldy plaster, stagnant yeast & some malts. Taste is mouldy plaster, spices, old stale dusty yeast, paint, mushroom, malts, light white pepper. Stale old yeast body. Comparable to their Lente bier but even below. Another one I would say has very clear flaws. Gave it to a less picky friend to finish – first time I saw his struggling with a beer. Hard to compliment.

5.10% ABV confirmed. Served on-draught at the Pakhuis Antwerp in July 2011. Reviewed from notes. Cost was 2.20 euro per glass or 10 euro per 1.3 litre pitcher. To my knowledge, this beer is not retired.

A: Pours a one finger head, soft looking but with limited cream. Good thickness and average retention. Colour is a cloudy blonde; it's clearly unfiltered.

Sm: Very pleasant light floral hop aroma. Orange citrus ester hops. Refreshing and inviting.

T: Orange citrus fruit esters alongside fruity and light floral hop notes. Very refreshing and pleasant. Tinges of welcome tame lemon. Balanced, complex, and well built. A wonderful summertime beer.

Mf: Creamy, nicely coarse and wet. There's an emergent dryness on the finish to encourage the next sip.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable and refreshing. Excellent price, high quality. Pairs well with the Pakhuis' delightful food as well. One of the better blondes I've had. I'd definitely have this one again.


**I had to tweak the overall score to give it an accurate letter grade. Please see my profile for more information on my reviewing ethos.
