3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sunshine on a winter night. A contradiction in terms to say the least, but, there it was. Who are we to question norms when we don’t know if we’re even alive or a dream in the mind of an alien bug? Is this cool breeze another figment of another consciousness? This lemon grove? This field of grass? The golden blonde hair of my companion? I may never know... but I doubt I’ll ever care.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Haven’t had many French beers... This one was great! I thought it was a nice balanced example of the style; not overbearing in any aspect. I’ll be buying more of this one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Subtle light caramelly malt aroma with a light citrus ester hint (no hop aroma) and faint mustiness. Beautiful bright golden straw color with funky chunky yeast sediment unless you very carefully decant. Light carbonatation and bright acidity complements light caramel malt flavor and green apple esters with very slight alcohol spicyness. Soft, persistent bitterness rounds out a lingering slighly dry finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Delicately balanced nose wavering between noble hop and clean pils malt
Appearance: Ok head retention, blond body, good clarity. White head.
Flavor: Crisp, clean and dry upfront with some sweet malts in the finish. Low hop. Very clean.
Palate: Very thirst quenching, dry finish with moderate carbonation, giving a little carbonic bite but not over the top.
Overall: Clean, crisp and very delicate and drinkable brew.

A malty body giving off subtle tones of breaded fruits and a clean warm finish. Easy to enjoy.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured pale golden with a decent white head that diminished quickly. Almost no aroma, although only hints of any scent were apple type flavors, but, so faint to be barely perceptible. Flavor was mild with a bit of cidery spice, but not too overpowering. Quite mild, but, very refreshing.

Had this at Disney World of all places. Not your average blonde with malt and caramel notes, a slightly less sweet, but arguably more delicious blonde beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a yellowish gold, with a large creamy white head. Not quite opaque but still very cloudy. Head persists quite a while leaving slight traces of foam back on the sides of the glass. Original aroma was of a floral/spicy hop with just the tinge of skunk. As it warms, sugar sweetness seeps in and as it warms more, diacetyl mixes in for a nice but faint butterscotch aroma. Light caramel sweetness on the tongue, with some balancing bitterness, though not sure if it is from hops or carbonation. A bit of banana like esters. Finishes with a lingering malt. The butter in the nose is not present in the taste. Mouth feel is soft with a medium body. Carbonation is not prickly. I will be looking for this one in the future.
