Not exactly a typical blonde beer. Pours golden with ok lacing, some head. Some interesting helles-like aroma in malt. Finishes with light sweet malt. Average carbonation. Very grainy. Tap at new brewpub.

Pour is a cloudy blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is some lagerish bready malts with a noble hop. Flavor is somewhat fruity but also a bit grassy hop bitterness. The malt is bone dry but adds a little honey after the swallow. This is a good beer with some lager notes along with a nice ale yeast. Not 90 percentile good but better than the average blonde ale.

pushkinwow (2062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
750ml bottle. Hazy and unfiltered pale golden yellow with a generous slightly off white head that lasts throughout. Slight farmhouse, but of grass, yeast, wheat, bit of lemon zest but muted, dr, slightly sweet, moderate carbonation and a light body, refreshing, clean finish. Tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Bottle from State Line. Pours cloudy gold with big fluffy white head. Nose and taste of freshly baked bread, fresh sugared cereal, citrus, pear, pie crust, yeast and spicy grassy hops. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Really nice balance. The best beer I’ve ever had in this style by far. I usually hate this style, but I wanted more of this. In fact, I might drive 3 hours just to get another bottle. It’s just that good.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear straw with some sediments, resilient white head sits on top. Flavor is pils malt, wheat. Finish is very herbal hops, some spices, too. Lingering herbal feel. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Felt very generic to me. I guess I don’t get the hype.

lesifflebiere (1326) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Rares sont les blondes qui réussissent à attirer l’attention (pour les bonnes raisons du moins) ; avec son bouquet houblonné, céréalier et fruité, ses notes de sucre et d’amertume bien dosées, l’Ostalgia devient l’une des seules blondes québécoises à nous rappeler qu’une bonne blonde, ça existe. Limpide, belle mousse blanche sur un liquide bien doré, elle n’est pas exempte de défauts (un tout petit côté médicamenteux, effervescence timide comme tous les autres produits Hopfenstark), mais vaut définitivement le détour.

On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Pale blonde. Dry and a bit bitter. Mild pear and peach in the background. Faint floral notes & dry spice. Nose a bit weak. Otherwise great.

Bouteille de 341ml, robe blonde limpide, arôme de malt , goût de levure (banane) très florale.

dandeman (542) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at Vice-Versa in Montreal. Aroma: Citrus with orange zest and a touch of cereal. Nose could stick out more. Appearance: Traditional gold blond with small head sticking to glass with nice lacing. Taste: Attack with spicy notes with citrus and orange coming back. Texture is between light and average. This beer is OK but under my expectations for this reputed brewery.
