JorisPPattyn (7809) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2004
Yellow-orange, slight haze; off-white head, condensing itself to 1/2 - 1 cm, some lace. Vanilla - and diacetyl in the nose. In a blonde - bwaaagh. Roasted malt and peppery, alcohol present. Dry taste, nothing obvious but pale malt, and a bit of alcohol. Diacetyl all but vanished, some roasted flavours. Becomes quite sweet in the finish, alcohol appearing. Maybe some fusels? Alcohol impression is exaggerated for its meagre 6.3 ABV. Quite dry and well-attenuated - I suspect sugar used is fully fermented. Technically OK blonde (diacetyl nose excepted) - but boring, boring...

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Sweet and wheaty, with sugar and citrus, honey and Belgian yeast, neutral fruits. Medium sparkling yellow clear (before dregs), with pillowy creamy white lacing head. Medium body with highly active carbonation. Starts fairly sweet, notes of bubblegum. Cut off quickly with some light acidity and some musty bitterness. Light alcohol-carbonic burn. Dry after with remnants of Bazooka Joe powder and chalky bitterness.
