33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, thanks Hanniku!
Fresh, soapy aroma has lot of citrus and hints of grain. Flavour has loads of citrus and it has some harsh bitterness. A decent and drinkable one, but would not buy again.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Bottle. Murky gold with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma is rather grainy and yeasty with soft grassy and floral notes, dried fruit and malt. Taste is also rather grainy with wheat and cereal, malt notes, light grassy hops, dried fruit and light floral notes. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grains, cereal, sweet malt, light caramel, dried fruit, dusty yeast, grassy notes and dried flowers.

Spicy estery aromas. Flavors of citrus, sweet malts and yeast. Finishes clean. Overall a pretty decent blonde.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 13, 2011
ZBF 2008 Sehr leichter Geruch von Süße und Hefigkeit. Leicht hefiger und bitterer Antrunk, milder werdend, ein leichter Hopfenton bleibt. Eher langweilig und vor allem zu mild. Test vom 4.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 10,8,8,8,-,8 - 8,21

Lubiere (10152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
A hazed blonde ale with a thick collapsing lacing white head. A smooth creamy honey aroma, with light orange peels, chalky points, very Belgian. In mouth, a smooth sweet candy sugar, with light acidic points, Belgian hops, quite nice and smooth, with somewhat harsh finish. 6.49$ 12 on from Gillies, Rockville, MD on Sept 20 2010, BB 12/10.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle, 33 cl. Blonde, light orange coloured beer with medium white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy and fruity, light flowers also can be smelled. Taste also is a good combination of malts, hops and a fruity taste overall the beer, finish is malty, light sweet. Although not exceptional, a nice beer anyway.

nuplastikk (4568) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Draft at Jacs. Creamy, thick, unfiltered golden yellow. Big foamy white head, lots of lace. Creamy and light, quite drinkable. Sort of like a good yeasty Wit with a quality hop addition. Soapy, dry and bitter. Somewhat Saisonish as well. Hoppy, crisp and refreshing. Thick cream soda like yeast notes with orange peel and grass tones. Nice.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Pours cloudy straw with huge white, champagne-like head. No lacing. Sweet aroma. Melons. Sweet taste with a bitterness mixed in that is not really that strong. Effervescent, highly carbonated seems to thin it out a bit. But it is a nice blonde.

crossovert (7579) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. It pours a clear, light pineapple/gold/orange color with a foamy bright white head. The head recedes with some very nice lacing. A very nice but different looking Tripel. The smell is subtle and mild, but nice. It has a lot of spiciness to it with some mild bready grains, caramel, candi sugar, and fruit. The flavor is interesting for a tripel, for sure one of the more bitter ones that I have come across. It is a blunt bitterness, but interesting nonetheless. Along with the bitterness is some light citrus and corriander. It is airy, light and drinkable, a very solid tripel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-02-2011 00:40:07
