PalCabral (159) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy amber with a huge frothy head, that lasts through the session. The arome is sweet from the yeast, oranges. It’s a lovely smell. The taste is malty and peppery from the hops, tasty but a tad too hoppy for me. It’s a great beer, classic Contreras stuff.

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!

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of floral, herbal, and spicy notes, seemingly all from hops, and complex, light grain notes. Flavor brings in some citrus but again focuses in on wheat, hay, grass, as well as some clove, pepper, and nutty/earthy yeasty notes. Finishes with a spice and apricot kick. Really nice stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2010 Cold in a pint glass. Massive head but does not linger. A little over carbonated but has a nice spicy (citrus) / yeasty taste. Its quite a bit better than its aroma, which is fairly weak and has faint floral character. I really like the tase after it warms up some and the mouth feel is quite rich. Its a nice Belgian Ale, although not among the best. Additionally, for a moderate ABV it has a nice warming sensation thats is very pleasant.

robinvboyer (4141) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2011
330ml bottle. Very nice hazy ornage piur, with a big white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast, light bready malts, and some great soft sugar. Flavor is quite balanced between sweet, and bitter. Lovely carbonation, with a great tropical fruit aftertaste. Incredibly easy drinking, and a wonderful summertime patio beer.

Really liked this one. Bright yellow but with a cloudy appearance. Tastes of citrus and bread. Some hints of cellar. Really nice foam top. Soft carbonation complements the flavours. A joy to drink.

kokkenrolv (281) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is slightly floral, some apricot, lime zest, hints of light malts, hints of belgian yeast tones. Deep orange, hazy, small white head. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, taste is some floral and herbal hops, ripe fruits, hint of banana. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium long dry and bitter finish. Nice blonde on the hoppy side.
