2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. A hazy pale yellow with a small creamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is a little musky with a good deal of sweet malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is little dull, sweet, malty with a slight sour note at the end. Could have been better with just a little more ’power’.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle from Skjold Burne, Hjallesevej sampled in 2004.]
A nice summerfriendly beer without the amounts of ingredients, but as a belgian ale it’s ok in this way. Bitterness, yeasty, fruitsweet in the light ale way. An ok beer.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold blonde with very little head and heavy pils leanings. Faint straw aroma with some malt. Nicely bitter, light, and dry in the mouth. Flavor is hops and straw. Mildly bitter again on the finish, which is drier than the relatively wet mouthfeel. Refreshing and more interesting than I thought. Light for an ale, but it would be a serious lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Clear golden-amber (very hazy golden with yeast) color with a medium, foamy and firm, lacy head. Strongly pale-malty, slightly honeyish, pine-soapy aroma with fruit, yeast, coriander, rosemary, and some acidity. Acidic-honey-malty flavor with some coriandery spiciness, sweetish raspberry, and hints of lemon. Light to medium-bodied, neutral palate with balanced carbonation. A quite pleasant and easily drinkable, yet not the most memorable blonde. A bit girlish, I’d say... :)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with a nice and lasting head - and the sediments are like a blizzard in the bottle. The aroma has notes of yeast and citrus. The flavour has a lot (too much) notes of bread, yeast, fruit and a citrussy finish. It’s nice, but I would have liked it to be in better balance and with a fuller body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours hazy and golden, with a good deal of carbonation, floaties and a nice off-white head. Complex aroma with apples, citrus, yeast-notes and hints of orange and raspberry. The flavor is yeasty and fruity, with hops, sweetness and some sour notes. Full body and a finish with a nice bitterness. The bottle was dated best before 20061031, and the lagering sure didn’t hurt it. (061111)
