Blond, bright and sparkling with a fine and creamy head. Deliciously fragrant thanks to a slight hint of fine hops. Delicate flavour, mellow, perfect as aperitif.

Good clear golden colour, only a slight haze. Head, while not thick, did last a wee while. Nose is a nice mix of malt and citrus fruit. Smooth and well balanced with a hint of citrus acidity. A good beer, not my favourite blonde tho! Tesco 750ml.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2006
Golden slightly clouded hue with a decent white foamy head. Orange yeast and malty nose which follows though to the taste which has some spicey notes with a long citrussy after taste. The bubbles are quite lively for a beer of this type however this remains one of the best beers of this type that I have tasted for a while.

Grovlam (4167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
Can. Yellow colour with a cloudy and sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was huge white coloured, which fully lasted. Left some excellent lacing on the glass. Aroma was very yeasty, spice, citrus, flowers, grass and coriander. Some malt comes into play with light notes of grain and hints of soft bread. Flavour is medium sweet. Medium bodied. Carbonation was lively. Sweet and soft like finish. Excellent Blonde Ale I thought.

berkshirejohn (5213) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2006
750 ml bottle (Tesco). Clear straw colour and very carbonated, lots of yeast in the bottle, but fortunately this was well settled. The frothy white head lasted well. The taste was typically blonde with obvious alcohol and a sweet aftertaste.

dj (538) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle, 750ml. A light amber colour with an average sized diminishing head. Sweet, somewhat medicinal/chemical aromas with some malt evident. The taste is sweet with alcohol quite evident along with cherry, pear, malt, caramel/honey and some hops and a hint of yeast. A somewhat sweet, malty, alcoholic finish. A pretty typical Belgian Ale.

SHIG (3968) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Golden amber with a thick lasting creamy white head. Sweet soapy smell. Sweet tingly grain and malt taste.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2006
750ml bottle from Tesco. Cloudy yellow colour with a thick white head. Aroma of fruit (peach and a touch of cherry). To taste sweet fruit malt, some spice and some yeast. Overall a mess of different flavours, not good.

haukur (1438) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 24, 2006
oh dear, after sniffing of this I was certain that this would be extremely good. Nice aroma of corns, lemons and insence (!?). Taste was just too carbonated and too sweet, hints of plums and peachas but to sweet finish

joergen (23765) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a huge white head. Aroma of malts and spices with fruity notes. Flavour of fruits and spices with notes of corn.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle (from Tesco, BB Nov 07). Light coloured. Clean slightly thin malts and hints of light fruity yeast. Drinks below its strength with a light refreshing drinkable body but this is lacking in flavour.
