The_Osprey (5932) - 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?]

Konfuzzi (17) - Freiburg, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
Sehr. Feines Bier. Erinnert mich an das Maredsous. Blonde. Golden in der Farbe mit schönem Schaum. Alkohol schmeckt man, sehr frisch und leicht bitter.

Skarecrow (160) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2016
500ml can BB 7/1/17 Phenolic fruity aroma with clove note. Poured light golden amber with OK head and good lacing. Mild bitterness followed by phenolic taste and smooth alcoholic finish. Wheat beer like without the haze.

couleur jaune doré; petite mousse blanche; arômes légèrement fruités; goût malté et fruité; bière un peu trop douce avec finale un peu amère et sèche

mice (782) - 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.

Klares gold mit üppiger Schaumkrone. Malzig, würzig, fruchtig, etwas Zitrus, blumig, süßlich.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2016
330ml bottle @ the Alb, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is sweet bready yeast. Taste is smooth, yeasty, perhaps a touch overly sweet, but definitely compared to the other options this really shines. Enjoyable.

Brandman (2831) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Golden body, white head. Aroma has belgian yeast, some fruity hops and spices. Flavour has grainy side. Odd.

Hopverdju (606) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
Goudblond bier met wit schuim. Geur: mout, granen en een storende geur van gegist gras. Smaak: wat bitterig. Wat sprankelend koolzuur. Voor de rest, gewoon teleurstellend.
