maekchu (2283) - 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.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Bready malt aroma with fruity esters and herbal hops. Sweet malty and fruity flavour with a touch of hops in the finish

Bottle @ home. Aroma is typical blond with more floral notes. Flavour is high carbonated floral malt with a touch of pepper. It tingles!

bdunhill (250) - 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!

corkyrory66 (700) - BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2014
Bière comme on le sait de 6,5 % abv, puisque le brasseur en a aligné 4 sur le même niveau !! Couleur dorée un peu ambrée. Clarté légèrement troublée par un peu de levure. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, avec du blanc d’oeuf en haut. Arômes un peu serrés et courts de pain blanc et butterscotch. 1ère bouche sur un malt un peu grillé, et un houblon d’une amertume un peu plate. Arrière-bouche pinçante. 2ème nez de câpres. 2ème bouche avec un bouquet vraiment faible. 3ème avec de meilleures impressions, davantage sur le malt avec un houblon en arrière-fond. La longueur offre de la marmelade, pomme de terre et du miel de châtaigne. La levure est douce, fine, mais faible. L’alcool est correct pour son niveau, mais ne remonte pas les saveurs. La finale est très linéaire, sans envergure. Conclusion : une bière tout ce qu’il y a de plus banal, avec même des saveurs un peu désagréables. A revoir totalement par le brasseur.
