Draft at pub in Brussels. Beautiful, rich apricot-tangerine color with a large, creamy white head. Very fruity aroma, orange and citrus, some yeastiness evident as well as good spiciness. Flavor is also sweet and fruity, with a distinct breadiness. Full and smooth body, gentle and creamy carbonation. Very enjoyable with dinner.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
25 cl Bottle. A clear beer with a tan head. A little spicy yeast aroma, with a sweet nose. An okey blond with a nice strukture, but a little too average.

Bottle. I am very impressed with both the brown and blond Ciney’s. The blonde is a bit more fruity in the nose. The flavor is more of a light citrus tinge with a nice sweet aftertaste similar to other blondes but more complete overall.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 21, 2005
Oddly enough I’m getting mango in the nose. The color is golden with a thin white head. The flavor has hints of grape and bitter apple. The mouthfeel is somewhat astringent, and the aftertaste is a little bit bitter. Good but not great.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) A slightly sour nose, but far from sour in flavour where the sweetish malts dominate. Beautiful golden colour. Long lasting palate. Nice abbey beer. 020893

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2005
(Bottled) Clear, deep golden color with a smallish, fading but lacy head. Sweetish, very honey-fruity and slightly yeasty aroma. Sweet, malty body with honey, watermelon and a grassy-hoppy finish. Medium-bodied, slicky-smooth and easily drinkable palate with balanced carbonation. Some fizziness and a hint of alcohol in the finish. A quite nice, sweet-honeyish blonde with a decent body and good balance (this sentence sounds like I’m rating something else than beer ;). Some similarity to Saku Sorts and the like.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2005
Tap. A sourdough aroma. Medium orange-yellow color. Fruity malt flavor with good body. A nice blonde ale.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 10, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Good one, although I prefeer the Brune one. BUt this is good, sweet but not too sweet, I mean it is a good sort of beer.

ghawener (1520) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 3, 2005
Bottle: Light orange colour, quite clear for a blonde, has a light carbonation. Head is off white, foamy and quickly fades. Aroma is complex, alcohol, sweet, bread dough at first and then half way through the bottle peach, pineapple comes out. Taste also progresses through the bottle, the first sips are malty, fruity sweet and finishes with a nice bitterness and quite dry.
