2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BB 10.05.14, at Gastropub Nordic, 201403308) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had butter, more butter and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were butter, grass, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had butter and bitterness. If the attempt was to brew a Belgian blonde it failed. The end result was a messy buttery brew with a harsh finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Swee diacetyl aroma. A bit papery. Rough dirty malts, does have that eastern european pale lager hub, but is huskier and with drier grains. Some minerals. Rough.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled@Tuulensuu, Tampere. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is even more diacetyl than Manufakurowy Pils, but still let some flavours out besides the diacetyl. Flavour is grassy, wooden, floral and quite strong on the diacetyl. Big buttery finish...

50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma of grass, diacetyl, some makes and grain. Flavor of caramel, grain, diacetyl and nuts. Slick palate, long sweet finish. Don’t really like this to be honest.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5l bottle. Gold, clear, avarage head. Aroma - caramel, raisin, bit belgian notes. Taste of biscuit, some belgian sourness. Bitterness is mild but beer is not sweet. But than comes overwhelming metal. Plan obviously was good, but something went wrong...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weak aroma, some diacetyl. pours pale with small white head. A bit malty, quite full-bodied, not much in the aftertaste. The first sips were off-putting, but then it was better. Not the best beer around.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
There is a big lie in naming that beer blonde. It has nothing in common with the decent belgian blonde. Obvious and quite striking diacethyl (buttery) in aroma. Full in taste with significant carbonation and bitter finish. Flat and predictable from beginning till end. Unstable head. When gets warmer diacethyl comes really irritating. No trace of belgian yeast. This beer is a joke. I would say it’s rather bad brown ale than anything Belgian. Avoid it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: not very intensive, mostly cereal, lack of fruity aromas. Copper colour, minimal head. Heavy cloying sweetness. Carbonation is a bit too high. Poor beer, has nothing to do with Belgian beers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden color with small and fast diminishing head. Aroma is very light, only some maltiness. Taste is also malty with some spicy notes. After that appears some sweety and unpleasant perfum elements.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. There are some problems with this beer. It is very malty, with a full body, and rather fruity. As such, it resembles in part doughy fruit cakes - with plums, rhubarb or apple pie. But that’s basically it. No spicy noters in here. Instead there is a lot of diacetyl and its butteriness is so strong, it makes a fatty impression. It’s drinkable, it’s not a bad beer but it doesn’t feel it turned out the way it was supposed to. And it’s not good enough to drink it again.
