bjakk (717) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 1, 2013
Golden with floating corns but white good foam. Mild thick aroma apples. Taste is light fruit, alcohol, light bitter aftertaste that gets magnifired

jerohen (2171) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2003
Bottled, 0.7 liter, BB '97 (> 8 years old). Hazy orange coloured, small but lasting head. Sweet and hoppy aroma, some cork. Obvious "age-sensation", notes of port. Watery palate. I've never had a fresh bottle, but i guess aging really benefits this one.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet yeasty, and spicy with coriander standing out. The the flavor is just as the aroma and with a dry end.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
650ml bottle from the Christmas market in Lille, 13th Dec 09. Golden blonde, perfectly clear, lively, with a big white persistent head. Dusty hops and alcohol on the nose. Balanced taste with a nice orange element. Could do with more complexity and weight but overall a good beer and washed down the turkey dinner nicely.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark, fully golden with a lively head. Very full-bodied, a malty nose and a distinct, hoppy character on a very sweet background. 240101

imdownthepub (13235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled, 650ml. Gold with white head. A lovely surprise this, a fully flavoured french Blonde beer, fruity with hints of fortified wine, some honeyed sweetness, spicy and tangy. Tasty and lasting, pretty decent.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2006
65cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Hey my 100th different French beer and there was me thinking it was all Kronenbourg and Export 33. Clear gold colour with thick white head. Spicey lemon aroma. Very drinkable blond beer in the mouth, bit of spice, oranges too. Bit soapy on aroma and in mouth. Very soft mouthfeel. Finish has some interesting orange fruit notes. Yes, for my 100 not a bad biere de garde. Spice and orange fruit over a soft lager style body.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2006
Clear light golden body with an average white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Very pleasant sweet taste, not full on in flavour but I enjoyed this better than the Brune.
