MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, - APR 22, 2014
330ml Bottle. This pours a light golden body topped with a medium last head. Its aroma is floral and mildly sweet with hints of spices and hops. Its yasye is surprisingly malty with a citrus smoky finish with the slightest dry smoky linger. A very nice blonde this one.

mandaritto (73) - LATVIA - FEB 19, 2015
High carbonated blond ale with medium head. Grassy, wheaty smell and taste but not in the bad way, some hints of fruits. Although too watery. Overall - drinkable beer, not so bad, definitely not my style.

Vells (848) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 19, 2015
Easy drinkable bit boring brew. Mostly malty background with notes of yeast, light fruitiness, bit coriander. Moderate sweetness with some bitterness. Quite high carbonation. Ends quite thin even bit watery.

bartlebier (2355) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2015
Shared 75cl bottle bb12/2016, tombola win at BBF ’15. Dank, sweetish honey herbalistics suppress their yeast-on-pale-malt origins and flow quietly within the somniferous honeybed of a regional Belgian ale. All the Poperinge hop grasses cannot quicken it to attention. OK meal accompanier.

ForlornHope (145) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
75 cl bottle decanted into jug. Aroma of orangey, floral hop and sweet grain. Appearance: yep, it’s a blonde. Taste is sweet to begin, but with a balancing light bitterness. Lively on the tongue, with a lemony, sappy, fruity taste that is really quite nice. Dry finish. Overall, not bad. Very drinkable and at this strength, one could enjoy a nice session on this.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a veiled and flakey slightly golden straw with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is loads of spices, pepper, mint, coriander. Flavor is very sweet, mint, bread, bubble gum, apricot and pineapples. Finish is a sharp herbal with pepper and mint. Lingering spices. Medium body, average to strong carbonation. Good!

Sten (694) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
Hazy orange - yellow beer with a small white head. Nice complex aroma of fresh yeast and malts. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity with nice balanced aftertaste. Nice brew. (Bottle 33cl)

kraddel (4242) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle Pours clear blonde, small , fast fading white head . Smell is sweet grains, yeasty ( fruits : more specific ’dusty’ bananas ) Taste is sweet ( sugar ) , malts, bit bitter , banana-ish yeastyness again. A buttery aspect as well ( no dyacethyl ) Rather sharp, yet very full taste . The bitterness lights it up a bit, but overall this is a rather sticky beer , more than a refreshing one . Bit overcarbonated . Aftertaste dies fast .

33cl bottle at home. Pale golden with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium sweetness with some herbal bitterness. Yeast, grain, honey, fruits and herbs. A decent Belgian blonde.
