33 cL bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic. Pours cloudy dark golden orange with a huge off-white head. Aroma is spiced, yeasty and distinct citrusy. Classic de dolle hight carbonation mouthfeel. Smooth caramelish and yeasty fruity flavoured. Followed by smooth estery and spiced flavoured notes before a mellow yeasty and subdued citrusy flavour makes the finish.

Ungstrup (31467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2004
The color is an unclear yellow and it has a beutiful head. The aroma is of corriander and yeast. The flavor is distictivly smoke - which is very unlikely for a Belgian Blond - but quite nice. Besides the smoke it also contains notes of malt and yeast before it ends on a dry corriander note. A lovely blonde.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) 5% ABV in my version. Pale golden, slightly hazy with a dense and very white head with some sediment at the bottom. Fresh and fruity character with a way too dominating bitterness that overturns the balance. Pity in an otherwise interesting beer. 230699

omhper (21889) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy golden, small creamy head. Flowery aroma. Medium sweet with soft, dense mouthfeel. Intensely hoppy, notes of pear and pine, and a perfectly modelled malty body. Damn good!

Cloudy darkish blond beer. Light dry palate. Dusty as hell. A little bit of fruit and then fermented floor sweepings. Grim! 1.4

4th February 2015
Bright clear golf beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Airy pale malts, semi sweet. A fruity burst kicks off. A little honey and tinned fruits. Airy finish. Hangs together reasonably well, pretty drinkable.
