3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally just called ’Augrenoise’ but renamed ’Augrenoise Blonde’ after the introduction of the Christmas version, this is the main beer of this small brewery connected to a home, of which the inhabitants design the labels. Off-white, irregular head, vividly crackling but not very stable; colour of ’old gold’ with a pinkish hue, misty. Aroma sweetly sourish, fruity, very apply (even cidery), wheaty with further hints of pear, strawberry, peach, lemon, honey, caramel, vanilla, mint, flowery hops. Rounded, soft and sweetish taste, again the presence of apple-like esters, citrussy freshness, finish drying with a short and late, subtle hop bitterishness. Elegant and quite sympathetic thirst-quencher.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250ml served from the tap house at Delirium Café. Hazy, golden body. Ring lacing to the glassware. Smell of wheat and fruits. Mild pineapples and peaches can be recognised in the taste profile. Notes of modest yeasty sourness to the tail. Just alright without further excitements (shared with Finn, Brussel, 06.05.2011).

Pours a hazy, unfiltered gold with a fluffy white head that settles. Lightly sweet, citrus aroma. Very frefreshing light blande ale, highlighted by strong lemon flavors. Clean finish...a nice summer beer. Really an enjoyable blonde.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 75cl corked, courtesy of MiP. A clear, pale golden beer with a decent white head. Slightly sour on the nose. Fruity, with some alcohol and a little bit of pale malts. Sour, fruity falvor with pale malts and nice hops in the background. Medium body, effervescent and slightly astringent. Bitter and sour finish. I don’t like the sourness in this one, else it’s an easy drinkable beer. 090822

Bottle, 6.5%. Mild fruity aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off fruity, turning quite citric. Has a lemony finish that is not entirely unpleasant, but neither does it seem clean.
