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.

flemmingwillum (1098) - Nysted, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2006
Nice looking beer with a long-lasting dense head, and a beautiful opaque yellow colour. Also a very nice aroma with yeast, wheat, malt, and a little bit of apples. Yeasty and wheaty flavor, with quite a lot malt sweetness, and maybe a little too obvious alcohol, for a blonde. However, it is stronger than blondes usually. The aftertaste is malty, sweet, has a good amount of alcohol, but also an unfortunate metallic finish. A nice beer, but the metallic finish is lowering it a couple of points.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Pours amber with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of alcohol and malt with hint of citrus hops. Hop forward, crisp flavor; clean finish. Body a little too thin.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Pour was a fizzy orange with foamy off white head. Nose was yeast and spices, taste was bitter-dry-sweet with a flurry of spices lingering in the after taste.

Bottle. Aroma was pleasant and fruity, but the taste was more than a little disappointing. Can’t say I will ever buy this again...

A froathy white head and a dark yellow body. Aroma has a littel fruit in it, mostly malt. Very powerful sweet flavors in this one. Overall, a pretty good blonde.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle. Very impressive head, with a yellowish color almost like a Pilsner. But also a slightly cloudy look. Aroma is sweet-yeasty, with maybe hints of fruit citrus and coriander. Medium body. Flavor is bitter-sweet but very balanced I thought. Spicy slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable beer I thought.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a scattered white head. Sweet fruity nose with a dose of bready yeast. Sweet malts combine with flavors of vanilla, oranges and spices. Slightly acidic and astringent. Finishes with a clean, dried fruit fade and bitter hops.
