Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at ChrisO. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, pear, melon, grass, dough, sweet, chalk and parma violets. The taste is doughy, fruity, tangy apple, pear, straw, light bitterness, spice and acidic notes with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not particularly great....

Bottle at Chriso tasting, 10/07/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is citric sherbets, light celery, salad cream ... oh dear! Herbal tones, faint hops. Taste comprises light ops, grassy, yeast, citric peel. Medium bodied, spritzy over carbed, drying finish. So very so.

thanatosti (868) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Hazy golden with a white head. Fruity floral aroma. Slightly metallic taste but a good bitterness. Rather short watery aftertaste. I expected a lot more hops considering the aroma.

[ As De Vriendschap Hopblond ].
Clear medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, light to moderate hoppy, grass, moderate yeasty, leather, light earthy. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, yeasty, leather. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20140117]

Bosskie (354) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Beautiful crystal clear golden colour, with subtle carbonation and a nice frothy head. Peachy mouty smell with some bread and yeast. Salty with white pepper and resin. The whole combines into something like chlorine. Nice fizziness but very light taste; watery bitter. Resin. Actually reminds me very much of Czech pilzner but with a moutiness which doesn’t lend itself well. Dry finish. Nice idea but not ready yet.

FatPhil (9002) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at In De Wildeman)
Honey colour, slight haze, spongy off-white head. Aroma is of fresh, slightly grassy hops. This is lovely and fresh. Quite a clean taste that has aspects of wheat. Needed a little swirling to address the carbonation level but otherwise presented a pleasant mouth feel.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

DutchMark (128) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
A not very pretentious name that properly describes the beer. A fesh blond beer with a flavor defined by the hops. Slightly soapy with long bitter aftertaste. My bottle had very little carbonation and no head when poured. With some more carbonation it would be a nice summer beer.
