Jorn69 (870) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop, Copenhagen (32 DKK). Malty and really fruity with spicy and yeasty notes, alcohol, medium sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry with fruity and alcoholic notes.

Shark_Pants (158) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
Most immediate impression is the huge carbonation as the bottle gushes as I open it. Unsurprisingly, pours golden with a large bubbly head that leaves a huge amount of lacing. Fairly indistinct aroma, with just some hints of belgian yeast, bread and honey. The taste is fairly hoppy sweet with noticeable malts but again a little underwhelming. Medium bodied. Alcohol tastes stronger than the labelled 6.5% ABV. By no means bad but not spectacular either.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Fruity hoppy nose, with caramel, lemon, and a strange rubbing alcohol note. Hazy orange/amber color, a thick fluffy white head, and good lace. Citrus hits right away, but suddenly turns rotten, some grass, bad apples, yeast, and a bit of phenolic stuff. Medium body. The alcohol is way too apparent. Almost as if it were fortified. Not so pleasant.

dEnk (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle @ home. Aroma is typical blond with more floral notes. Flavour is high carbonated floral malt with a touch of pepper. It tingles!

bdunhill (243) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2014
This blond is not characteristic of most blondes, it comes in with midl aroma and an non distinct appearance. But the first taste has a smoky flavour, but doesn’t linger (as that wouldn’t be nice). Delicious, distinctive and enjoyable!
