From the Bottle. Light golden in colour with a slight haze, very crisp and lively mouth feel. Subtle spice, honey sweetness with the perfect amount of bitterness on the finish. I want another!

reggiedunlop (3536) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Pours a hazy golden honey color with a huge white head...outstanding lacing and retention. Aroma has a leafy hoppiness...slightly soapy and delicate...spicy...a bit of hay...somewhat like a saison. Flavor has a belgian yeasty fruitiness and nice hoppy notes...german accents...spicy and delicate...leafy. mouthfeel is light and lively with a slightly sweet, grassy finish. Very nice blonde ale!

MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours golden, with a really really small head and a slight lace. A bit hazy. Aroma is cereals, faint flowers, a bit of resin as well. Good, pretty good! Taste is pretty much a hop-party as far as golden ales are concerned : a bit of everything, really, with a very healthy sourness that feels completely natural. Add in some fruits, grass and oak -- all coming from the malts -- and you have a terrific blonde ale. Those don’t really get better than this!

Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur jaune-dorée et voilée. Nez de pain, moyen de grains de malt pâles, léger de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes d’abricots) et de houblon herbeux. aux notes citriques avec des petites notes épicées (poivre très doux). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement crémeuse. Légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques (présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes sucrées, notes d’abricots) et de traces d’épices (poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales avec un moyen-léger goût de pain, des traces de biscuits puis en finale il y a regain d’amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen, léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes). (hiver 2006-07)

Sampled at the DC Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a very frothy white head. Nice nose, grassy, hoppy, lemon, herbs, sage, some flowers. Flavor is sweet, candy sugar, lemon peel, herbs, a little grass. Medium bodied, herbal finish.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours clear rich gold with 2 fingers of dense head and incredible retention and lacing. Aroma is cheerios, light fruity pilsener malt, grassy hoppiness. Taste is pilsener-esque with refreshingly clean grain, light sweetness, hints of pepper and honey, barely noticeable ale fruitiness, balanced wood and grass notes from hops. Body is medium, creamy, average carbonation, full mouthfeel, dry, slightly bitter finish, EXTREMELY drinkable. Overall, a great representation of the style. Delicious and fully flavored at 5%abv, this is another big winner from Hopfenstark.

Thanks to noodleuser. Hazy light golden pour with a billowing head. Nose and flavor both held nice notes of lemongrass, orange peel, strawberry, cider, and some good doughy wheat. Clean and crisp palate, quite refreshing. Very nice for the style.
