Golden beer, with medium head. Fantastic grassy, almost herby after taste, very clean beer. A little too sweet for my taste buds.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2004
nice warm-golden color with fine airy head leaving a good lace. Good malty aroma’s with some fresh hoppy accents. Medium dry mouthfeel with good soft maltyness and nice hoppy bitterness. Fine clean afthertaste with a herbal minty edge.

TheBeerGod (5572) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottled. Purchased at Le Petit Vaudree. Amber blond with a medium white head. Nose is candy sugar, fruit, sweet malts, faint honey and light spice. Light floral aroma as well. Taste is flowery and spicy with a candy sugar and sweet malt blend to it. Body is almost overcarbonated and has a strong spice bite to it. Finish is more light bitterness along with spice and a flowery yeasty combo with minimal sweetness.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Clear and golden in color ( ... it’s a blond ... ) It’s sweet, but not so much that my teeth hurt. Some spice. Overall, decent.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2004
Nice clear golden color. Small head that holds some time. Yeasty fruity sweet nose. More wheaty sweetness in flavor acompagnied by some acidic notes. Spicy finish (coriander) that lingers on quite some time.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
(on botle) It almost looks like a pilsner, but is, in my book, a very good blond. The nose son hits you with lots of whteayeast and alcohol. And the alcohol is very dominant throughout the experience. Loads of of varm, soft malt in the mouth and a varming finish, again with the alcohol going to your toes.

JorisPPattyn (8442) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2004
Clear golden beer; virtually no head, some lace only. Caramel, roasted, laurel in the nose. Oppressive alcoholic-caramel taste, quite dry, white candi sugar. Dry, alcoholburn, thinnish. Horrible mass-produced stronger ale. The individual notes seem OK, but the total is way below average.

larsniclas (6129) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden. Yeasty and herby aroma. A mild and somewhat malty flavour. A bit thin.

Golden, small white head. Aroma is yeasty and brings citrus and a few other fruits. Flavor is yeasty and malty and it has a mild finish.
