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.

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.

AlainG (1139) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
D’un jaune pâle qui contient une multitude de sédiments en suspens ayant une mousse timide. Des odeurs légèrement fruitées et houblonnées réussissent tant bien que mal à se signaler. Un goût surette, légèrement acidulé, laissant passer ici et là des pointes de miel et du blé. Elle est relativement bien équilibrée. Je n’y trouve pas de grandes qualités ni de gros défauts. En vérifiant la date d’embouteillage, je constate qu’elle est vieille de 5 mois. Peut-être que plus fraîche je l’apprécierais plus? (231-120512)

TURDFERGUSON (3943) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
Small bottle from Sam’s. Hazy yellow golden with a thick meringue like head. Nose is grassy, earthy, very clean, light plastic, lightly herbal. Flavor is a little more complex, very lightly spiced, some light funk more grass and earthy notes, cantaloupe, peach. Finish is a little plasticy, with some clean bitterness. Some imperfections, but overall very good.

"333" from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours rather dishwater gold with a white head. Aroma of mild - both bread and probably saaz. Med body. Flavor is something of a fruity pils. Not strongly fruity - but it’s there. Lightly bready and rather herbal hop. It’s bitter enough to push into a decent pils range, but this is an ale. Perhaps this is what happens with pils ingredients and an ale yeast. Might account for the fruit hint. Main attraction is the bitter finish - also it could pass for a clean beer. Sadly.

12 ounce bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. $6...yikes! The aroma on this is very nice with some subtle biscuit and doughy malts present. A light honey aroma is also present. Hazy, cloudy, unfiltered straw-colored body with a medium, strong fluffy white head present. Good lacing. Blondes should be filtered, no? Starts with a, earthy hop bitterness, which is fairly aggressive. This is followed by some light, cereal maltiness, which tastes a lot like pilsner malt. Finishes crisp, dry, and even more earthy with a significant hop kick. There is a very nice, creamy, perfect carbonated body on this. An enjoyable beer for summer, but at 50 cents an ounce, I can’t really justify buying this beer again. I have a feeling this beer will sit on the shelves for awhile, and that stale product will not be a good thing...especially with a hoppy beer like this. My bottle was bottled in 01/2012
