Borresteijn (5238) - Amsterdam, - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at In de Wildeman. Slightly hazy light-golden colour, white head. Aroma of pale malts, crackers, hint of pineapple, light hops. Flavour is light sweet, dry malty, light fruity, light floral, nice medium bitter hoppy finish. Light-bodied. Gets better with each sip.

martin00sr (1458) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2015
Hazy golden, huge airy white froth. Wheat and light hop aroma. Sweetish, slightly grainy malt flavour wirth a light citric, sourish note, could be the high carb. Clean and fresh but not particularly exciting.

Alengrin (2986) - BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2015
Golden ale from one of those new Italian micro breweries. Very thick, frothy and rocky, egg-white head, crackling loudly and sticking firmly to the edge of the glass; colour is a hazy warm ’old gold’ with fierce sparkling supporting the impressive head, more of a cloudy ochre with deposit but still with a ’champenoise’ bubble effect; the head diminishes after a while but stays stable. Aroma of green apple, sourdough, unmistakable wheat, freshly cut grass and weeds, raw rhubarb, lime, unripe gooseberries, dried grapefruit peel, perhaps some iron, unsweetened yoghurt, peach, some banana, watermelon, an earthy smell of cooked turnip, soap, honey, hint of stale sweat but nothing truly disturbing. Vividly fruity onset (green plums, apple, sour berries, dried citrus peel), subduedly sweetish but crisp and sourish with an expectedly strong carbo, minerally and tingling vividly on the tongue; slightly oily, smooth mouthfeel, spicy yeasty notes, fairly ’neutral’ and grainy pale malt sweetishness paired with a ’deep’ and soft wheat malt sourishness (reminding me just a little bit of a Hefeweizen, but far less outspoken), persisting quite strongly and building a bridge to the finish, where the same sourishness lingers along with a grassy, leafy hop bitterishness, drying a bit and of medium duration, though the sharp carbonation also supports the drying effect in the throat; some pale malt sweetishness creeps through as well, but it’s a sourish and somewhat spicy yeast flavour which remains for the longest along with a slightly medicinal aspect and a late entry of earthy hop bitterness, which admittedly lasts longer than expected, with a somewhat resinous feel to it. Not too many off-flavours here, but clearly too tart and too yeasty in order to be called a true ’golden ale’: in this style, a beer should be cleaner and smoother. This is not a real golden ale in the Anglo-Saxon sense of the word, this is another Belgian blonde, but not the worst one at that, though a bit strong on the ’sourdough-yeast’ side and a bit overcarbonated.

MiP (14046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle, 4.6%. Aroma of wet grass - wet grassy hops, that is. Cloudy golden coloour. OK stable white head. The flavour has a citric hoppiness, some grapefruit, mango, quite refreshing. Has some yeast, but the beer is good and refreshing, nevertheless. High carbonation.

Bottle. Pours hazy light amber with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and flowers, with subtle kotes of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with fruity and citric notes and touches of malt. Lingering, bitter and citric aftertaste. Decent.

ClarkVV (4058) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Draught at La Fine Mousse, 4/25/15
Clear golden body is topped by a small white head that fades completely.
Not much in the nose, maybe a touch of bread, creamed wheat and very light grassiness. Lime/lemon notes and light minerality. No alcohol or flaws.
Watery texture and light carbonation leave very minimally bitter grass and floral notes on the palate, with light lemon/lime and lots of soft wheat that adds texture and light dryness, but very little sweetness. Well-attenuated, at least and just incredibly light. Very clean, extremely drinkable. A delightful session ale.
