sayravai (4677) - 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 (8323) - 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 (3738) - 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 (1486) - 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.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
White head on a light golden body. Sweet in the taste and aroma, a nice, but not exceptional blonde beer. Enjoyable any time, I think better in the Winter than in the Summer.

2.8
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Rapid loss of head with slight release of gases. Thin body with Candy sugar and spice notes Overly sweet for style basic and boring.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2005
Clear blond beer, white head. Keywords are: lightly fruity, pretty sweet, malty. OK beer, but pretty boring.

RichardGretton (4365) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2005
Light looking Belgian beer with a pleasant sweet aroma. The flavour is slightly fruity but quite fermented. Overall a reasonable beer.

JonMoore (1959) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2005
Nice looking blond with good sized white head. Aroma is coriander, light fruits, and fresh yeast. Taste is coriander and fruit with some nice acidity. Medium bodied and carbonation. Nice.
