Gary (1300) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2011
(Bottled) There is a simplicity to this , as if they just said lets manifest a very safe and textbook Belgian blond ale with shitloads of fruity yeast esters , but without that charming Saison like dry finish that would make this something you’d wanna drink lots of. Some notes of grass,hay,spicy boozy bitterness and sweet caramel showcased through out . Reasonable 3.5 kinda thang.

gunnfryd (9909) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is dry, milky sour peaches. Flavour is dry, canned peaches, alcohol, hop, yeast, apple. Strange beer.

kramer (4687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Tap, Drie Fonteinen. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a beautiful frothy white head. Nice bready pils malt nose with some light yeastiness. The flavor is light and airy with pale maltiness and a moderate bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied for a Blonde, nice light fizzy carbonation. Lingering floral finish. Pretty nice, above average for the style.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle (33 cl) from bierzwerg.de. Shadu golden, medium white head. Malty and fruity aroma with floral hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, low to medium bitterness.

erickok (3173) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 25, 2011
Clear, golden body with light white lacing, frothy head. Nice rich aroma with citrus, grass, cloves and fresh yeast. Light body, nice funk at the start and a surprising balanced but fiery light bitterness. If that doesn’t make sense, try it. Hard to describe but it really works. Only downside, next to the lager looks, is the somewhat one sided aftertaste. Surprised me a lot with its awful and genetically Belgium label. (33cl bottle)

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
In bottle. Pours a cloudy, light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of bready yeast, caramel and candy sugar. Flavours of caramel, yeast, a little banana and candy sugar. Moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle. Alcohol is fairly present, especially in the linger with some pepper and caramel again. Foamy mouth-feel.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20
Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2011
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Huge, frothy white head, unclear, pale golden body content. Dry, sweet fruity nose, perfumed. Taste of wheat-like fruits added by spices and candy sweetness. Rounded on the swallow. Medium bodied, masked alcohol. Has got some entertainment value (the Skibotn session, 16.09.2011).

laiti (4948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
33 cl bottle. BBE 28.03.2013
2/3 glasses formed a head, mine didn’t. Fruity aroma with apricot and hints of wheat and yeast. Flavour has apricot, aftertaste has some alcohol. Too much CO2 in the palate and too much alcohol.

olio (5278) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
33 cl bottle
Pours cloudy yellow colour with medium lasting head. Aroma is apricot, some soap, citrus and grass. Flavour is apricot, citrus and some spices. Well carbonated but too watery palate for the amount of alcohol it has. A bit dissapointing.

lusikka (5341) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
330 ml bottle. BBE 28.02.2013.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of apricot, citrus, hay and some grass. Flavour of apricot, sweet berries, spices, Belgian yeast, some hops and grass. Quite smooth bodied with a thin, alcohol-driven finish with some fruitiness. Too much alcohol for my taste and could be more refreshing.
