JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Appearance: clear coppery pour with a thick white head; pours much dirtier on the second go ’round. Aroma: citrusy and yeasty, almost like a tripel, with a bit of funk and and white pepper. Taste: some honeyed cereal grains, grassy hops, a hint of metal and aspirin, whole peppercorns, and slightly floral hops. Finish: dry like champagne, with a lingering herbal bitterness. Notes: Not a bad dirty blonde. Drinkable palate, if slightly forgettable flavors. Hops were not prominent, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

rauchbier (3803) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle. Lemon gold, fluffy and persistent white head and gentle condition. Pleasantly spicy and yeasty on the nose with some Duvel-like notes, quite malty sweet with a hint of honeyed Bohemian hops. Soft yet full bodied in the mouth with an initial yeasty sweetness and a slightly spicy edge but allowing the odd shaft of grainy malt and pleasant hop bitterness to shine briefly through.Finish is restrained and spicy with a background of chalky hop bitterness and a little fruity maltiness.

The_Osprey (6362) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
330ml bottle at home in Richmond as ’Bellerose Bière Blonde Extra’, 6.5%, BB Sep 2019, brewed at Brasserie des Sources. Very slow gush. Clear amber, sparkling, dense foamy off-white head. Aroma is peppery biscuits, spicy honey, candi sugar. Body is frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is breathy musty hops with honey and candi sugar, crackers and spice, semisweet malt, touches of citrus and champagne. Fantastic balance. I’m quite impressed, considering I would not usually turn to this style. For the price (I paid £1.20), this is not one to miss. Recommended. [Note to admins - how is this not a biere de garde?]

mice (804) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Kirkas kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisella pitsiä jättävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu aika peruslagermainen, yllättävän kesy ja mieto. Maku hedelmäinen ja viljainen sekä aavistuksen sitruksinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma ja kiva pieni humalan puraisu lopussa. Ei huippu millään mittakaavalla, mutta ainakin simpukoiden kanssa toimi hyvin.
