drjay44 (2736) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2010
750 ml. bottle. BBD 06/09. Pours a huge fluffy white, lasting head, over a hazy, particle loaded, golden (SRM 5) body.....nose is light lemon, apple, sugar cookie.....taste is lightly sweet throughout, with lemon, apple and mild allspice, ending slightly tart.....mouth feel is medium, with carbonation becoming creamy. This is a typical Belgian Blond Ale. It is slightly sweet, has light fruit and spice flavors and aromas, and has a creamy mouth feel. It is an enjoyable, but not particularly interesting beer. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

Pour is a blonde with a white head, Aroma is yeasty with some biscuity malts. Flavor is again some dry malts and almost no hop presence. Kinda wet paper bag going on here which I thought only would happen in a pale lager. Wow this is not good and gets boring real fast.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Straw color with a wispy off-white head. Nice continued flow of bubbles. Floral and honey notes mix with a bit of light yeast. HInts of over-ripe fruit throw things off a bit. Flavors of light fruit, pale malt, bananas, and bubble gum. Not real clean, but not dirty enough to say that something is amiss. Finish is fairly crisp and light. Linger has some wheat and light fruit components. Flavors are a bit heavy at times.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2009
750ml bottle, uncorked. Golden-yellow color with a nice foamy head. Slightly hazy with some particulates floating about. The aroma is a sugary sweet and quite bitter. Lots of sweet malt flavor, with a balanced crispness. A touch more hops than your typical Belgian Blond, which show themselves in the aftertaste. Rich and creamy, some nice smooth yeasty tones. A complete pleasure to drink. Excellent beer.
