ehhdayton (1188) - USA - FEB 17, 2006
The aroma is light and consists of some floral hoppiness and malty sweetness. The color is golden with an off whtie head. The flavor is light with a malty sweetness combined with a slight earthiness. The finish on the palate is crisp and clean.

saxo (14436) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottled. Nice creamy head. Yellow beer. This beer reminds me more of a pale lager than a blonde. And it would have been an awesome pale lager, but as a blonde it lacks the complex tastes of that style. A smooth beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006
Bottled. A straw blonde coloured beer which pours with anice white head. The aroma is sweet and a little buttery. There may be a little toffee or diacetyl lurking in the background. the taste is sweet and a little syrupy. Quite perfumed or cleaning product notes in the taste over a sticky sweetness. Not very enjoyable and a little bit of a chore to drink the whole 75cl.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nice lacings. Sweet and malty with some mellow spicyness. Hint of citrus- and artificial apple aromas. Dry/spicy finish.

Lubiere (10787) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2006
Amber hazy ale with a thin white head. Sweet vanilla in aroma, with maderized malt, vinous notes. Sweet malt in mouth, oxidized. Light orange notes. Oily nouthfeel. Bottle shared with Gonzobeer. Merci Hans.

bluevegie (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2006
Pale golden body with a medium size, almost lasting white head. Yeasty aroma with apples. Medium bodied, simple, light caramel and spice, very easy drinking, but can’t see that it is meant for "keeping" too long as it hasn’t got too much in it for my liking. An improvement on the brune though.

Decent blonde but spicy in an unusual way.

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2005
Nice taste of green, sour apples but with a sweeter finish, a totally different experience compared to Beligan blondes. If the French can come up with more like this, I would be very happy.
