diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2007
Bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke, Denderleeuw, Belgium.
Hazy, blond body. White, rocky, longlasting head. Excellent lace. Aroma of hops, vanilla, fruits, apples, peach, ... Quite nice aroma. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Not very complex, but some nice (Belgian) hoppiness. Ok, but not great.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2007
Bottled. hazy golden appearance with a low white head. Spicy sweet aroma of yeast butter and oranges.. Sweet fruity flavour with yeasty tones of oranges, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Sweet and yeasty flavour of nectarines and white bread with spicy undertones of pepper, menthol and anise. Mild finish of nutmeg, yeasta nd oranges.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2007
Hazt gold with a lot of fizz. Yeasty aroma. Taste began with a promising spicy sweetness before a long and rather uninteresting dry finish. A disappointing beer.

fiulijn (14326) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Cloudy golden color; frothy head. The aroma is both malty and spicy. Same for the flavor, with stronger malt and stronger spice touch (coriander and light juniper), ending with a bold bitterness. Good.

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2006
33cl bottle. Deep gold/orange colour with thin white head. Lovely intense hop malt aroma. Really nice agressive grapefruit and tangerine with plenty of juicy malt in the mouth. Pleasing hoppy finish with sweet citrus fruit tangerine and mandarin. Really good beer. Hits my taste hot spots

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2005
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Cloudy pale yellow. Fresh, dewy nose with notes of citrus and vanilla. Flowery and fairly malty with low acidic notes. Good balance but a bit one-dimensional.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Small and reasonably new Belgian brewery. I got this "Blond" from "Belgisk Bryg" in Emdrup. But it wasn’t for sale because of the large flaky sediments of yeast that lies at the bottom and creates doubt whether this beer is "off". As soon as the cap is off this beer fizzes extremely and floats out of the bottle. As far as flavour goes, this is still a delicious, soft blond ale with distinct sweetness and a hint of sourness. But something is definitely wrong.. 210103
