Wow, this is a what the Belgian’s call a blonde? If only all tasted so good. You are immediately greated with a strong apricot and herbal aroma. The flavor is the same, but slightly bitter with very pleasant carbonation. I want to take large gulps, which might not be such a good idea with an 8% beer. I have got to admit I have always passed on the brewery with a gnome on the label, I wont judge (on that criteria) again.
