Bottle 330 ml. Pours blond with a thick frothy white head. Nice floral aroma along with hops, lavender and citrus. Taste is on the same notes, but less pronunced. Light beer, right on style. Fairly enjoyable.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2014
Sandy yellow with a misty complexion. Frothy, loose head that is mostly lasting but fields a wide, stringy lace. Fruity, tart, underripe citrus, bready yeast, lemon peel and lime on the nose. Frothy; all foam and suds, limiting flavour. Sour, tart, almost cordial-like foundation. Tangy, drawn finish; clammy, a little cloying. Light rice cake and bready yeast mid-palate. Feather-weight body. Phenolic and estery but the not the best of both. Pretty bland to be honest! (Code L13 605, 2014, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Gul/oransje med veldig mye fluffy skum. Spennende og behagelig aroma av sitrus, milde toner av krydder og gjær. Smaken er frisk og leskende, med før nevnte sitrus og gjær. Fruktig, med anelse gress også. Noe tørr, litt bitter i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Big offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with visible particles and slight carbonation. Herbal coriander and fruit aroma with mealy spicy notes. Dry-sweet coriander and tropical fruit taste with herbal spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel that’s still quite intense. Dryish spicy herbal fruity aftertaste with mealy notes. For being 4.8% this is superb, and even if we don’t consider that it’s still a surprisingly good beer. I could drink a lot of this. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly web order.)

Very well balanced intricate Blonde. Drinks beautifully and despite being lightly hoped and at under 5% this beer still has a complex character. There are few other beers that I would rather drink as a session beer. Can’t wait to get my hands on more.

Sparf (101) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Doften är mycket komplex, men jag blir inte klar över den. Jäst, mycket svag citrusbakgrund, mogna päron, en lätt kryddighet och en något kemisk karaktär som av rengöringsmedel. Mycket ljus, nästan wit-färgad. Ett tämligen stor skum med ok halveringstid. Pärontoner mot en maltig botten kryddad med koriander i smaken. Citrustoner och jäst finns också med. En helt lätt beska växer fram i eftersmaken efter en torr avslutning. Mycket kolsyra och en lätt men trevlig kropp. På det hela taget en elegant komposition men inget fantastiskt öl. Påminner i stil om en quadrupel men står sig slätt med sina veka framtoning.

Holmen1 (1995) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2014
Flaske fra polet: højt hvitt skum opp til randen av mitt Duvel-glass og lys gylden, korrekt uklar. Lett og fin krydderaroma. God smak og munnfylde, tørr og fin. En meget lettdrikkelig sak som fort kunne blitt en sommerfavoritt hvis den hadde vært de nødvendige 0,1 svakere.
