stravale (2424) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen [300415]
Golden, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast, bit peppery, soft clove
Taste as aroma, light sweet pale malt, soft Belgian yeast esters, spicy, seems like Leffe Blonde but more muted
Palate - Medium carb and body. Finish is soft spicy.
Overall - Softer than Leffe. It’s OK.

ClarkVV (4065) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Can from a small, local market in Paris, drunk 4/26/15
Clear, large bubbled liquid is brassy-blonde with an initially large white head that fully recedes to nothing.
Straw and light corn-like graininess in the nose seems almost fully devoid of hops. Perhaps a bit of floral/pepper aromatics but outpaced by the lightly fruity yeast (which isn’t even all that fruity). Light banana, nectarine and a hint of cotton candy. Some metallic notes as wel; not overly offensive, just very sterile and stale. No alcohol in the nose, nor really anything that would be considered pleasant, despite it not being horribly unpleasant (just mildly so).
Shouldn’t have even bothered buying this crap and I regret doing so, but the selection wasn’t good at the store down the street and voila, I have this thoroughly uninteresting, lifeless, soulless beer. Watery, with a very filtered, stripped texture and loose carbonation. Not too sweet at least and cleaner than a lot of the big industrials, but just nothing you should ever drink. Just drink water instead if this is your only choice. If I never drink another industrial Franco-Belgian blonde ale again, it will be too soon.

Can in France. Pale amber with very thin white head. Flowery gentle aroma - small carbonation. Thin tasting, very slight ting on tongue. Different tasting - flowery.

Easy drinkable blond beer; quite sweet, but not too heavy. Not special, but a good and accessible alternative to a pilsener.

rarbring (1779) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2015
Aroma: Smelling of fruits, pears, apricots, yeast and butter.
Appearance: A clear deep golden brew, an off-white head with some lacing but small curtains.
Taste: Sweet bread, some spices, ripe peaches, butter.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft, a good body, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: An OK blonde, probably a bit old and tired.
Note: Bottle 330 ml Reviewed 2012-03-15.
