COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.
A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2008
On tap, several occasion. Golden colour with a nice thick creamy head. Aroma of fruits, esters, some sourness. Flavour is soft, sweet, a bit tart, fruity, a bit alcohol. Has more carbonation when its bottled, the tap version is imo one of the best of the commercially available blond beers.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2008
<11.2oz bottle: Yeasty pale yellow pour with a compact, mound inducing bright white head. Bright nose is slightly acidic, with buttery and nutty undertones. Rich and creamy, the body delivers a level dose of fresh dough, nut, straw and earthy yeast. Easy, simple and well executed. A very nice blonde.

Beerman6686 (6320) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Poured a nice golden blonde color with a small white head. Aroma was light, sweet, some candy sugar and a little bit of spice. Taste was much the same, very smooth and mellow, but a bit too bland for my tastes.

nimbleprop (7470) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Pours a transparent gold with a foamy white head and tight, small bubbles reflecting plenty of carbonation. Nose is mild but there is some Belgian candy, yeast, bananas, some malt, and some perfume. Flavor is similar, a little sour, malt, yeasty with some sweetness. A little chalky on the palate. Very drinkable, but a little bland.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2008
11.2 oz bottle poured in tulip glass. Nice carbonation, sudsy foam head-thin and fizzy from start to finnish. Orange tinge with a thin pallet. Crisp and slight citrus notes with a light hop presence. Had a bit of a nut-grain quality but not really standing out, even with the yeast from the bottom. Dry-semi sweet finish.
