33 cL bottle. Pours slight cloudy yellow with a slowly diminishing white head. Light yeasty and mild citric wheat note. Flavour is solid yeasty and followed with a nice set of wheat esters, works quite well together here. Ends again with a smooth yeasty flavour and a light spice note.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroam is a sour wheat aroma and so is the flavor. This beer is OK for a blonde, but somewhat boring and nothing special.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2008
Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with huge fluggyish bubbly head. Aroma is fruits, yeast, spices and some caramel malts. Flavour is fruits, yeast,fudge, some grass and spices. A quite wheaty feeling to it in the finish and aftertaste, along with quite burning spices. Pleasantly balanced Belgian blond.

omhper (19322) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2002
Golden coloured with loads of small yeast sediment particles floating around and a brief creamy head. Vanilla and berries in the nose. Medium bodied, smooth and honeyish with caramel flavour. The sweetness grows towards the finish.

Very hazy gold beer. Small white head. Light dry palate. Tripel like sweet malts and spice. A little citrus, well buried. Dry finish. Over dry and spicy and no real balance.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Rerate.
Hazy golden color; giant thick head; beautiful lace. Very nice nose of malt and noble wood. Pretty tart taste; malt warmth; full mouth.
A solid beer, pretty original, suitable for any meal (meat, fish, chese...). Interesting.
<font size=1>Definitively, the previous time I had a bad bottle...</font>

[2002-08-10, 4-3-3-2-7] Dry nose, with something unpleasant, medicinal. Pretty sweet start and drier finish, but in the taste there's something wrong, like a veggie soup. Strange experience.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2010
