Golden colour with a lot of foam head.
Huge citric smell which is very nice in my opinion.
Carbonation is very present in the mouth along with the citric flavour.
Overall, a very tasty beer.

Bottle in Orval glass. Looks very pale yellow, very clear, almost like clear lemonjuice. Looks really good. Big head that shrinks down to a little layer.

Smell is huge yeast. Some earthiness, and even mushrooms. Also some light fruits.

Taste is better than the smell. Very fresh yeastiness, but with a nice bitterness, and more fruit than on the nose. Some apples and citruspeel. Light acohol. Aftertase is light but pleasant.

Mouth is quite light, medium carbonation, really what you'd expect from the style.

Overall this is good for the style. I love blond beers that are light and fresh but full of flavour, and this is exactly that.

From the bottle, it pours a golden color with a nice head. Malt and some citrus in the nose. The mouth gets the classic Belgian blond with a touch of carbonation. Enjoyable!

smaker som en litt oppjazza eplejuice, hint av honning. lettdrikkelig. med en litt metallisk ettersmak.

Poured a beautiful clear golden color with an inch of head into a tulip glass. Good string of carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass.

Faint smell of hops, not too strong.

Taste is also hoppy, with just a hint of sweetness.

Feels good in the mouth, with the carbonation in balance with the beer. Could be a good session beer.

Bought at the Bierparadijs in Meer, Belgium. Poured into an Orval chalice. Straw blond body with lots of carbonation and a massive white head that stabilizes at one finger. Later head reduces to fine layer but leaves an extraordinary lacing. Strong pleasant smell of yeast, cloves and citrus. Starts rather bland but manifests soon in pleasantly bitter taste that fades into a bit annoying metallic aftertaste that almost resembles blood. In my opinion the exactly right amount of carbonation for this type of beer. It tickles on the lips and the tip of the tongue, bubbles burst on the palate and it foams out at the back of the throat. Tremendous. Furthermore, the burpfactor is still relatively low. All in all a very special blonde. Only the taste is a bit of a let down if you are not a Vampire. Will I ever get used to metallic flavors? Well maybe one day...
