Hazy golden, with a very thick head. Very spicy yeast aroma wiht accents of banana, pineapple and coriander. Very sweet, quity spicy but farly well balanced. This is growing on me as I work through it.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Pours hazy orange with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Good lacings. Aroma has some yeast, light grapefruit, soft pepper. Medium carbonation, fine dry and oily palate. Flavour is dry, some cardboard, oranges, yeast, mild malty, a touch of bitterness with some grapefruit thrown in. Not spectacular (especially the cardboard detracts), but nicely drinkable.

Travlr (11078) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Golden orange color with a large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of nuts and light spice. Slightly thin body, but decent malt and nutty flavor.

bhensonb (10935) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2008
750 ml brown bottle at wine frig temperature. Rich aroma of light raisin, like golden sultana. Peach juice color with a fine, fluffy white head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is an odd combination of fruits and spice. Started with a touch of grapefruit, but that passed on to something like mild spiced peach. Light caramel malt. The finish is a bit bland and dry compared to the start, and has some bitter. Each sip is a spurt of Belgian flavor, and then it goes bland. So keep on sipping. It’s a really good drink.

hopscotch (9106) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, yeasty nose with notes of biscuit, apricot and mandarin orange with hints of coriander and pepper. Sweet, biscuity, fruity flavor with tasty, woodsy-aged hops and restrained bitterness provided by the alcohol or yeast. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Sweet, breadsy finish.

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Poured at the Gulfstream beer fest. A cloudy light amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma is very fruity, spicy, and some hints of yeast. Flavor is yeasty, caramel, apple and spices. Not bad, but not the best Blonde.
