3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, yellow/orange. White head, constantly reinforced by small bubbles.
Aroma is yeast, citrus, sweet malt, cleaning product, ash (?), a little ripe banana. Makes me think of a tripel. Nice!
Taste is quite balanced with a small sweetness and bitterness.
Heavily carbonated, kind of watery on the palate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours gold with a large fading head. Nose shows Belgian phenols, grassy hops and a very soft but off-putting decomposing plant matter/muddy note. Flavours concentrate one the phenols, grassy and spicy hops and light sweet malt. Finishes very dry however. Strange aftertaste...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow, light brow body. Nice white head. Very potent aroma with a lot of fruit, some citrus and a lot of banana as well as syrup. Taste is disappointing however: watery, high carbonation and only slight bitter taste in the end. It’s not too far from a lemon flavoured club soda. Tingly mouthfeel due to high carbonation. Disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
