3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 25 cl bottle 6, 7% alc. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Starts sweet and fruity and evolves with aromas of banana, citrus fruits, yeast and floral hops. Medium bodied. Nice hoppy, bitter finish. Nice blond but a bit too acidic before it gets some air.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, 6.8% abv. Pours hazy golden with big long lasting white head and thick lacing. Beautiful in the glass. Sweet yeasty aroma. Sweet fruit and pale malts carrying to a hoppy, lightly bitter finish which is slightly metallic. A bit spicy and sharp. I like Belgian blondes and this one does not disappoint, tasty and satisfying. The alcohol is hidden but detectable, adding to the flavor profile. Purchased a six pack for $9.49 at Broudys, Orange Park FL. Excellent!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet fruity body and finish is slightly cloying because it doesn’t totally integrate, maybe lacking acidity. Banana and tropical and pale malt aromas. Decent, easily found menu choice.

Bright honey gold color, with a frothy white head, leaving good laces, sweet pale malt, fruity, grainy, yeasty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with fruity notes of citrus fruits, marmalade accent, hint candied clementines, with a melow character, leading towards a sweet fruity and hoppy finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had a pint, yes a pint, at a place in france not realising the percentage, and the fact it cost about £6, ah those silly ’euros’ you spend willy nilly. It was fairly good, not knowing the % made me get drunk really quickly. The taste kinda lingers in your mouth in the morning though, which is bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a TON of floating protein and/or yeast chunks and a huge fluffy white head. Aroma of clove, banana, lemon and floral hops. Flavor also has notes of clove, banana and lemon plus yeast, spices, orange, sweet malt and some hop bitterness at the end. Pleasantly sweet and nicely balanced. Alcohol content is extremely well-hidden. Medium bodied and the carbonation is a bit too lively and prickly for my personal liking. Great head retention. Overall, a very tasty, refreshing brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slighty sour wheat and yeast aroma. Orange-tinted golden pour, with a well-spaced even white head. Wheaty, with a tinge of line and some of the classic Belgian esters. A more balanced profile. Finish is dry and somewhat with coarse grain.
