3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Old BA rate - bottle)
Pours with a half-finger of pure white bubbly head with absolutely no retention or lacing; slightly hazy light marigold color. A bit earthy and bready; some mineral; light and faint bread; perhaps a touch of light fruit as well. The earth tones carry through to the taste; very, very mild hop presence; faint bit of citrus and a touch of apple. Lightish to medium body; very tight prickly carbonation to make things a little more interesting. I gotta say that even though this isn’t the best tasting blonde I’ve had, it’s OK though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille de 33 cl achetée chez Boissons Center à Montagny-sur-Yverdon (CH). Blonde à peine voilée, mosse légère et fugace, fin pétillement. Odeur fruitée du malt, note de citron. Goût rond et doux, touches d’orange et florale, pointe d’amande. Plaisante et agréable. Finale plus en amertume houblonnée et pointe acidulée. Une basse fermentation réussie.

Honey aroma. Thin grainy taste. Metallic bitterness. finish a touch alcoholic and papery. Also some shellfish, or at least seaweedy brine. Disappointing, but not a disaster.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 5.2%. Tiny hint of butter in the nose. Hazy golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is grassy, slightly rough with a hint of yeast. Medium bitterness, the grass seems to come from the hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
thanks faroeviking for sharing.
cloudy yellow, small white head.
yeasty arome resembling a witbier. slight spices in the aroma.
flavor is grass, wheat, hops. slight spices. i would have thought it was a german weissbier blended with a belgian blonde, tilting towards the belgian blonde. flavor is okay.
