JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Straw golden with floating impurities and a tall, frothy head, quickly diminishing. Sweet, strang hayish nose, slightly perfumy, with an alcoholic note. Fusty, artisanal oily flavor of fermented hay. Sweet. No bitterness. Flat. Odd. Not for me.

Unclear yellow with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, bready and yeasty. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. 160512

jcnielsen (1981) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Straw, grain, and some hoppy aromas. Light straw and earthy flavor. Seems really under carbonated. Not too enjoyable.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
September 2008: from BA. Green 75cl cork and caged bottle, drank two months after its BBD. Poured into four tulip shaped glasses, the first three showed a clear golden Blonde beer with very little head. The last pour produced a cloudier body with a stronger smell and taste (as you would expect). I prefered the last pour! Wheat and dog biscuits came to mind in the aroma, then a more general farmyard grain smell took over. French beers are getting better (the ones I try anyway), this one doesn’t set the world alight, but it does have something about it. I liked the sweet aftertaste and its sour start, it just failed in the body fullness for me, but overall, OK.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours a pale golden color with a huge white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and malts with some spicy hop notes. Taste is sweet malts and fruit with a spicy hop finish and traces of yeast. Medium body and lively carbonation provide a nice tingle on the tastebuds. A very nice blonde ale which was very much appreciated.

Quack-Duck (7728) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2012
0.25l bottle from saveur-biere.com. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Dusty hops in the nose. Sweet, dusty hops with hints of wet cardboard. Not brilliant.

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2012
19/II/2012 25cl bottle @ Le Lion Bossu (Lille) - BB: 7/V/13 (2012-146)

Clear blond beer, small creamy head with big bubbles, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, little sugary, and is that corn? Some citrus too. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: milk chocolate first, some sweet malts, bit of sugary, lots of ripe fruits (plums). Aftertaste: chocolate, bitter, citrus, sour ending. The chocolate flavours in a blond beer are pretty surprising.
