Nello’s Blond
origin: Belgium
Tried: 14th March 2009
Sponsor: Friend who bought it from Antwerp.

Hi my name is Adelaine and this is my first beer review for berbeer :) I have been wanting to write a review but didn’t really find anything interesting.. I seem to be drinking the same stuff over and over again *sigh*

This is however something different.

The label to start is strange, it does not look like your standard mass produced beer label. Looks more like something from a smaller brewery and it has a whimsical feel to the design. It looks like something I would pick up if I see it on the shelf! Strangest thing is the text behind is nearly 100% japanese… mm.. maybe it is a popular belgian beer in japan.. mmm..

The colour is a little darker and murky.. you could feel that it is a little bit thicker (than pils) when you pour.

The taste? This is what I liked most.. it has a hint of honey both in smell and in in flavour and a hint of caramel, although my friend disagree.. she says its a flavour from malt.. she works as a flavourist so… I think she would know her 2 cents more than me about this.

But as whimsical as the label is, the flavour is equally so.. as you try to figure out.,. what is this strange brust of taste of favour..

For anyone who complains that they do not like beer because it is bitter, this is a nice compromise. This is not a fruit juice plus beer but a real beer beer but the bitterness is hidden somewhat by the sweet time I’m in Belgium, I’m buying 2 dozen.

I would recommend it for a colder weather or an air cond venue.. not something you want to chunk down to cool down during a hot day. Perfect to drink while watching chick flicks on a weekend with girl friends eating chips and tapas.. :)

could be not so much a “manly” beer, so could maybe not appeal to people who like their beer, strong and bitter :P

I like it though, and try if you have a chance :)
