_angst_ (3067) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle bought @ beerplanet.be. Pours clear golden with a frothy and fizzy white head that leaves lots of soapy trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is floral and perfume-like with crackers, pear popsicle, pineapple, passionfruit, cape gooseberries, hay, dry soil, lemon zest and hints of dandelions and lemon grass perfume. Taste is slightly sweet, tiny bitter, tiny fruity, lightly floral and slightly metallic with crackers, pears, green apples, hay, lemon zest, sheet metal, cereal, pineapple, cape gooseberries and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly dry, tiny tart, tiny spicy astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and floral with crackers, dried flowers, hay, apple skins, lemon juice, sheet metal and hints of tropical fruits. Quite allright, especially with food.

deekyn (1264) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
A- pours a clear and bubbly blond with a nice finger of white head. S- almost reeks of Budweiser. A lager-esque funk is coupled with dough, honey, floral notes, coriander, over ripe apples and faint must. M- light to medium palate with a alright effervescent quality and some stickiness. T- taste is sweet to bitter. Dough, ripe apples, honey and some wood up front, that moves to some musty bitter alcohol, and mineral water in the end. Ending is relatively silent and quick overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (7248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
330mL bottle, pours a pretty clear dull golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavour are petty dull, both giving off notes of Belgian yeast and biscuity malts - not a whole lot else. Very light palate and body, with little character. Drinkable, but there are way better blond ales out there .

hapjydeuce (955) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled, random purchase to experiment with a non-sour 3 Fonteinen. Clear light gold color with a thick lacy head. Cereal aroma with light apple cider aroma. Straight Belgian pale flavor of grains and a light dry and slightly fruity finish. Simple but refreshing.

On tap at Jester King. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a slight funk note with musty grains and a touch of tart fruits. Flavor has similar notes of musty grains with a bit of sweetness and shiny of tartness.
