Blondie is a Belgian style ale fermented with our own house yeast. The color is straw yellow with a nice fruity flavour balanced with maltiness and floral hops. A nice beer with good drinkability.

Wischylini (256) - Grimstad, - NOV 30, 2013
Pours an almost clear straw yellow, with only a slight haziness from the yeast, and looks very carbonated, as there are tons of bubbles streaming up all throughout the glass. A big white head forms nicely, and dissipates slowly, and leaves a nice lacing. The aromas are fruity, with citrus fruits being the most prominent; and the malts impart a mild aroma of cereals and very lightly toasted grains; additionally, there’s an ever so slight hint of cloves in the aftertaste. The taste is tart like grapefruits, and with a slight sweetness to it as well. The mouthfeel is a lot heavier than one would expect from a beer this light, and is partially due to the apparent soft carbonation. This beer has a refreshing taste and aroma, but the mouthfeel is a bit of a downer.

metalspice (658) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
Tåkete, strågult med fint skum. Klar duft av høy, brød og lett sitrus. Mye det samme i smaken. Ufattelig friskt og lettdrikkelig.

Nonshaugen (433) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2015
50 cl bottle. Straw to pale yellow, thin off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, grapes, spices and grass. Very dry and bitter mouthfeel. Carbonation is a bit aggressive. Flavours pretty much the same as in the aroma, not much of that banana and coriander that you might expect from this beer style. Quite long, citrusy aftertaste.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
On tap at Ølhallen, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma is quite floral dominated, with fresh meadows and lightly spiced floral notes. Flavour brings out cereal notes, floral notes and light Belgian yeast. Smooth and drinkable, but fairly uninteresting. Decent.
