DarkElf (3028) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012
12-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This Belgian Blond pours a very hazy, yellow-gold body with over an inch of off-white head that settles to a wide ring. The nose is bready, slightly sweet, a bit grassy, and fairly spicy, with quite a dusty quality to it, as well as some juniper. It’s a malty beer, with yeasty bread and toasty bread crust, but the mildly bitter hops add a floral and somewhat grassy character, and there is a pleasant yeasty spiciness in the finish. The light-medium bodied beer is well-carbonated, but it seems that much of the carbonation goes toward generating the large head, which results in a lower than desired level of carbonation on the palate. Larger patches of lacing stick to the glass. Overall, this beer won’t be memorable, but it’s a pleasant, drinkable Blond to sip on over the course of an evening.

Hazy dark blond. Aroma is quite yeasty with light citrus and grape. Flavour has a spicy, yeasty edge but otherwise it’s quite a plain Belgian blond.

Een zeer zacht biertje, moutig. Mooie kleur in het glas. Ideaal als aperitiefbiertje.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Flaske fra Holmens importavdeling (maritimt lager), på aktivitetsdag jan-14: kjapt skum og uklar gylden. Deilig aroma av fjøs, koriander og humle. Balansert og meget lettdrikkelig. En utmerket start på dagen.

Muddy golden. White head. Aroma of continental hops, Belgian yeast and hints of coriander. Fruity and well-balanced taste. Good drinkability.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, belgian yeast, white sugar and some fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

A typical Belgian blond beer, but with a dry mouthfeel and a bitter edge. Nice.

2010 Vintage. Thx! for sharing Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle. Clear, bright orange with very fast gone white head. Sour spices and old sour oranges, infection or adverse effects of age? , sour medicinal, hint rubbing alcohol,… in the nose. Bitter medicinal, sour old oranges, bitter metallic, sour yeast, light sweetness, attic, hay dust,… in the taste. Light and metallic. I would assume that age has not been kind for this beer.
