3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer as it pours from the bottle a tenebrous golden orange color, the head portly in size, frothy in texture, and the residue forms a fine sheet of lace to cover the glass. The nose sweet, light hints of yeast, orange peel, fresh and clean, quite appealing to the senses. Start is mostly malt, somewhat tart, top is slender in its feel to the palate, finish has a moderate to light acidity, hops are delightful in their spicy presence, aftertaste long lasting and slightly bitter, quite a pleasant little brew.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 This beer has a ocher body - hue with an initial bitter flavor and a light body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Definite tropical fruit through the whole front end of this one. Pear. Then a kind of welcome (for me) flattish hop harshness comes in and straightens out the whole sweet party in your mouth. Whew! Great body, great appearance...but why oh why do I keep going after blondes when I don’t like them?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Great aroma - pears, apples, citrus, sweet, light hops. Small off-white head over golden cloudy beer - almost luminescent. Medium fizzy with medium-heavy body, bit chalky from sediment. Alcohol. White wine flavor, grape, honey, citrus. Decent bitter end/finish. Champagne. Great tasting beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky, heavily creamed coffee color with a thin dense head of white foam. Minute carbonation. Sassy aroma with tropical fruit mixing with musty yeast and pasty dough. Biting, crisp and sharp on the first sip with a mellow nature underneath. Notes of pineapple, kiwi and acidic melon atop a rich, doughy malt base. Yeasty sharpness is tangy and almost sour. Hop bitterness and flavor are not apparent. Remains crisp and sharp throughout, but never spritzy. Light bodied. Finishes thicker, awash in tropical fruitiness and with a yeasty zest. A handsome brew of such light stature.

Drinkable ale went down well with a clean malty flavor. Only draw back is that it is very yeasty.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very blond beer. Milky if you pour everything. The aroma is hoppy, soapy and fruity. The taste is sweet hop with a yeasty bitter finish. The label, a purple flying bitch does look a bit cheap.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Faintly hazy pale gold with large fine bubbled lasting head. Very attractive fruit (peach & pineapple) cider hoppy soapy aroma. Medium smooth body. Unusual bitter then mellow sweet nectar flavoured start. Increasingly bitter middle and light woody yeast and bitter finish. They have quite wondorous things with the hops on this beer and can’t understand why others have rated it quite so lowly.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 2004-06-03, 6-4-7-4-13=34
Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Smooth, quite malty, but still a bit dry (Triple-like). Fully enjoyable, not complex.
Hazy blond hale, big head. Quite strong dry hop aroma, dry, a bit sour. Dry, sour taste, pretty aggressive. Similar palate, maybe too bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale, misty yellow color. Hoppy aroma. Clean taste. Thin and watery. Dry finish. Good light bodied ale - better than other American standards, but better Belgian blonds.
