oh6gdx (20602) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2008
Bottled, from Alko. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruits, earth, mild metal as well as some slight malts. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some spices and also quite earthy notes. Mild alcohol in the finish. As it gets warmer it gets melted rubber in the aroma, as well as the mild metallicness gets quite much stronger. Flavour stays quite the same when warming up.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2008
330ml bottle Alko Simple almost lagery malty aroma, touch of zingy hops. Pleasant carbonation. Simple soft malty taste. touch of citrus and spice. OK hops. An interesting balance between the sweet and the dry. A touch alcoholic, and a bit too simple to really excite.

This is one of the better white beers I’ve had. Even though I’m not a fan of this style of beer I can tell this was made with quality. Has a citrus aroma with wood like hints like it says in the description (something different), and malts. Nice light fruity flavor. Not too much of a bitter aftertaste in the end. Not too bad of a brew for a white beer. Good job.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2008
First beer at the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival in Georgia on 10/18/08. This one is a winner. Golden in color and a yeasty nose. The flavor was dominated by yeast and light fruit, apple, pear and citrus. Dry finish. Listed here as a Biere de Garde, but reminded me of a Saison.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2008
750 ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Duvel glass. Big fluffy lasting head laces generously when it fails atop the translucent amber-gold body....grassy, initially pil-like fresh aroma on more exploration offers some funkiness, but also a touch of skunk-like unpleasantness....the body is moderately sweet to start, some tart notes coming in midpalate, with a lightly sour, milky character towards the finish, a bit of vegetal character....I get the feeling that the wheat and especially the rice did not favor this beer; on the whole, so-so.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2008
(750ml bottle, BB 03/28/09) Pours a clear golden body with a medium-sized off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of apple, caramel, hay, alcohol, metallic, black pepper, and mustiness. Flavor of alcohol, yeast, caramel, and apple.

TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Nice beer. Pours a brite light orage amber color. Head is fluffy and lingers. Not sure why this beer wasn’t bottle conditioned. Not as much carbonation as I’d expect from a BdG. Nice hop spiciness. Tart fruit and a slight funkiness. Overall, a good beer.

Bottle 33. This is a typical Belgian style beer. Good triple blond beer very sweet, quite similar to a Duvel but more fruity.
