2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
300 ml. bottle sampled. Purchased @ ALBO. Light hazy apple juice golden, big fluffy industrial white head. Nose apple juice alcohol, phenolic, esters, bad apple juice, light cabbage, chemical, industrial fare. Body is hugely, fizzy, chemical & lightly watery. Taste is phenolic, light cooked cabbage, cheap alcohol mixed with apple juice, chemicals & washing powder. Painfully industrial for me. The good score baffles me. As far as I am concerned the low scores for beers like Budweiser, malt liquor etc. & this getting decent to good scores has everything to do with perception & nothing with taste or quality. I see more & more adds for this bar where they act all crafty.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2015 33 cl bottle@Voksenåsen Bar in large tulip glass@approx 5 degrees C (too cold). Pours almost clear yellow-golden with a large white head of tiny bubbles. Aroma of bread, citrus and fresh laundry. Effervescent mouthfeel with rather high carbonation and that Belgian taste of bread, malt and a little yeast and spizyness from tropical fruit. Soft, drinkable and light in a positive manner, though it does become a litte heavier as it warms up, before the slight bitterness in the long aftertaste sets in. Very well balanced beer. As with all good Blondes, as this one, I sometimes wonder why I bother with anything else...but then again :-)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is golden with a tinge of brown, a big off-white head which leaves lacing. Plenty of bubbles rising. Aroma- malty, Belgian yeast, cereal, sweetbread, spices. Taste- spices, coriander, hint of orange peel, sugary fruit, smooth mouthfeel, hoppy undertones, some caramel malt. Solid stuff.

Keggy and bloated despite initial promising appearance the nose suggests apple before your tongue is saturated by bubble gum, bubble gum, bubble gun, bubble gum.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
nice but not very intensive aroma produced by yeast: bananas and some other fruits,
medium to light body, well-carbonated, a little slick texture
taste corresponding with aroma: banana, peach with some malty sweetness
