mcberko (7248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with a humungous frothy white head with good lacing. Aroma is very wheaty, with loads of freshly baked bread, some dough, cereal, and hay - very fresh nose. Flavour is fruity, something the nose didn’t give off, with notes of banana, lemon and green apples, which is then overtaken by the prominent notes of hay, freshly baked bread and loads of cereal malt. Rather flavourful for being a 5% blond, a style that is usually bland and generic. Dry and soft mouthfeel, with a wonderful amount of fruitiness that makes this very refreshing. Most excellent thirst quencher with lots of depth and complexity. Surprisingly awesome.

On tap at Vices et versa (Montreal). Pours clear golden with thin white head. Not much on the aroma but taste is great: caramel, malt and fruits. Medium bodied. Interesting.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle (brand new bottle to our market, date code seems to indicated 01/12). Pours with a lightly hazed, very pale, straw yellow hued body with a large and lasting white head. Aromas are quite estery with some acetaldehyde and straw. Lots of apple, baked bread, pear, grassy hop. Bready and toasty malt. Cidery. Flavors are malty and bready, medium sulfur and cleaner than the nose. Medium assertive bitterness with a lightly grassy hop character. Toasted and bready malt flavors compete. Carbonation is high ( what seems like above 2.8 volumes of CO2). Medium estery, lightly cidery, some alcohol. I was looking forward to this, but I am pretty disappointed. Medium-thin body. Dry.

Theydon_Bois (9993) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
IP trade in Montreal for this bottle - thanks to Patrick, drank in Apr ’12. Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a tulip glass to a slightly hazed golden colour with a medium white head. A grassy nose with yeast notes, citrus, malt an spice coming across. Taste wise bready malts, a lemony hop bitterness, honey and a yeast flavour similar to that found in a saison. Medium body and carbonation with a clean finish. Overall and enjoyable beer crisp and refreshing, almost ’helles meets saison’ !

Sampled in a 11.5 oz bottle. Pours light yellow and a huge head. A nice Belgian blonde but not the best i have had. A nice summer brew.

Travlr (13517) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Tasted yesterday in honor of Canada Day, cheers! Cloudy golden color, massive white ice cream cone head, solid lacing. Aroma of duty, earthy lemons and straw. Taste is barnyard, rising bread dough, sour citrus. Very nice.

Draft. Hazy blonde pour, good lace/retention. Aroma of straw, cracker, bread, grass, yeast, lightly tart. Taste is quite dry, light grassy hops, cracker, earth. Palate is soft, creamy, lightly bitter finish. Very good.

Bottle: pours cloudy yellow golden, milky white head. Nose is coriander, biscuit malts, subtle earth notes. More of the same once on the palate. Subtle coriander, yeast, milk thistle with a milky consistency. Quite drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
