YigSvartka (127) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
This bottle is a barrel of laughs! Translucent gold with many bubbles, not unlike a pale lager. Mid sized head. Malt, yeast, bubblegum, banana aroma. Light bodied for a Belgium blonde, but the other flavours are as expected. Heavy on yeast, sweet banana and caramel, and some hop as well. Although not spectacular, it’s refreshing drinking a Belgium blonde that doesn’t require arduous stomach stretching.

VDuquerroux (424) - Airvault, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle (funny look!), 33cL. A golden yellow orange beer, light hazy ; big white head with a medium retention. No lacing. Fruity aroma (citrus), herbs, spices, biscuit (light). Medium sweet, light to medium bitter refreshing. Medium body, nearly silky texture, good carbonation, dry bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, pleasant spicy yeasty aroma, refreshing. OK. First drank about one year ago at La Rochelle, France waiting for the marathon finishers.

bewyder (158) - FRANCE - OCT 22, 2014
Blonde belge forte, alcool très présent et trouvée très peu intéressante point de vue aromatique. Pas terrible mais à retester. Bouteille bue au bar La tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 29/08/2013.

nilsas (1807) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
Søtlig duft av frukter, plomme m.m. Dunkel lys gyllen farge. Dekkende hvitt skum, heng langs kant. Frisk smak av frukter med en liten syrlig ettersmak.

lachneger (347) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2014
Goudkleurig pils met een volle witte schuimkraag. Veel co2. Smaak veel te zoet en een nare plakkerig nasmaak. Gedronken in Frankrijk ( wijn zijn ze toch echt beter in) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from E.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a large, dense white head. Aroma of oranges, flowery hops and Belgian yeast esters. Some zesty citrus in the flavour, with melon and dusty grain. Finish was grassy hop, slight herbal notes and straw.

minutemat (1888) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
330ml bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Thanks to Blackhaddock for bringing this! Can’t say I was diggin this. Pours gold with thin frothy white head. Light citrus, light sweetness, thin spice, an almost lagery feel. Very disappointing for me, although I do have a bottle of this myself so may have to re-rate from a proper serving.

reynaldg (36) - FRANCE - AUG 27, 2014
Pas mal faite, assez sucrée et fruitée, mais sans particularité aucune. Bof --- Not badly done, quite sweet and fruity, but not unremarkable.
