2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow body, a very big white head, holds ok, sticks nice to the glass. Could hold a bit longer... Smell is a bit unpleasant, a bit like burned plastic comes trough, some sweetness, earthy. Not my smell. Taste is a bit watery, sweet-sour that goes to a biterness. Not completly my thing. Good carbonation. Drinkeable, but not completly balanced. Dry aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge foamy white head. Aroma of Belgian hops, sugary malts and quite yeasty. Flavor is somewhat sweet, nice and bitter and quite refreshing and drinkable. Still loads of carbonation giving this a nice texture. Decent brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a cloudy light yellow with a medium, eggshell head. Very nice white lacing. Aroma is pound cake mix, flour, old caramel green apple, acetaldehyde . Taste is chalky, powdery, lots of green apples. Just riddled with flaws.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky pale gold with massive amounts of white foam. The aromas literally leap from the glass, sweet rich malt, freshly cut grass and porridge & honey. Massive hay/straw flavours on the palate, above a layer of honey, and spice. It’s not entirely balanced, with some peculiar, unwelcome coppery characteristics spoiling the fun. But hey, everyone loves a Blonde that’s a bit dirty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a big white head and an aroma of fruits, mainly citrus, yeast and herbs. The taste is a bit sweet, citrus again and banana too, malts and sweet spices. The finish is mildly bitter. Drikable, but not too good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Belgobaren (Stochkolm).
Yellow golden color, much intense one. Optimal body with persistent bubbly aspect. Creamy head of good resistance. Much coolness aroma, realy stinging with notes of banana and stum, indeed rich bouquet. Much lively and crisp taste; overbearing alcohol notes. Much solid but altogether much pleasant one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A hazy medium yellow beer with a huge, frothy/fizzy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty, lightky to moderately hoppy, lightly yeasty, with notes of bread, citric fruits, flowers, a hint of banana and spices. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. No thrill, but a balanced and well brewed Belgian ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 330 ml, achetée Au Grain d’Orge à Crissier (CH). Blonde saturée à superbe col de mousse blanche, formant dentelles sur le verre. Parfum de malt, douceur et zeste, orange, coriandre, toast. La bouche est douce, sucrée, parfumée d’épices, fruitée, touche de levure, caramel. Légère, goutue et désaltérante, elle se pare d’une amertume houblonnée herbacée en finale.
