Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours straw blond and hazy with a nice head. The aroma malty and yeasty, promising. The taste is malty with typical belgian yeast flavours, but rather one-dimensional. There’s no real depth to the beer and the mouthfeel is too light, almost giving it a sense of wheat beer. I also think the beer is too flat, it would do with some more carb. Never really been interested in beer that market themselves as gluten-free and I chose this one because of the type, but whether it is because of the lack of gluten or not, this beer lack something.

vidmidia (52) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2015 Cor de mel, turva. Espuma abundante de longa duração. Aroma de malte, com toques cítricos. Amargor equilibrado com notas cítricas e um leve toque de banana. Retrogosto amargo, com um pouco do sabor artificial comum nas cervejas sem glúten, mas bem menor do que todas do estilo que já tomei. Uma boa opção para celíacos.

Very dry belgian blonde beer, unfortunately the dryness and bitterness seem a bit overpowering to me.

Luktar och smakar väldigt mycket jäst. Inte så mycket sötma. Lite tråkig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden color, white head. Belgian yeast, estery fruity scent. Belgian blonde taste, though with surprisingly high resin like dry lasting bitterness. MEdium mouthfeel, high dry bitterness. Bitter aftertaste mainly.

Bulk_Carrier (2515) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a glazed over pale golden to yellow color with a slight transparency all about allowing a fair amount of carbonation to be seen rising. The smell seemed to have an almost overly cooked corn to it. A light weird grainy / grassy heavy sort of kick of wheat came out a bit. The taste was moderately grassy and somewhat grainy - sweet but an almost overly cooked to almost come across as bland. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sessionability that wanted to show its face but something from the taste makes it somewhat hard to put down. Overall, I’m not exactly sure what happened with this one but I can’t see for any reason why I would really want to try this again.

Hermod (3875) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2014
33cl bottle, labeled Green’s original blond ale. BBE 06/2018. From Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with a huge, frothy white head. Nicely dry, with orange peel, spicy notes, pear in aroma. Flavor has fermened sweet fruits, belgian yeast, spicy notes. Alcohol is coming through a little. More dry than sweet finish. Quite nice as it is, but feels raw, think I’d like this even better when a little older. Too straightforward now.
