3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On-tap at Ladyface
A: The beer pours a clear, pale yellow color with a small, finger tall, white head.
S: Smells sort of bland. A bit of yeast and sweet pale malts, but thatís about it. A little bit of spice and fruit esters to it, but not all that great. Just a hint of floral hop character, perhaps a touch of banana.
T: The flavor is enjoyable in its simplicity. While most of the characteristics are the same as the nose, they are more pronounced. A touch of white pepper, banana, apple, and sweet, pale malts. Light spice notes, a bit of yeast, and a mild bitterness on the finish.
M: Light bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation.
O: Not the greatest smelling beer, but nice and light, actually a decently well done blonde.

I had this on tap at Ladyface Alehouse. As others have noted, Ladyface has produced a "blonde" that has a lot more flavor & character than is typically seen for this style. Good job!

Wow - this is a style that I donít normally enjoy, however this was a really nice offering. Somewhat nuttier than normal - maybe a malty cereal nuttiness? Blond color of course. Really a well made beer for the intro offering for newbies at a microbrewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewery on my birthday.Makes sense that this is in the Belgian category and not the blonde/goldens. Pours with a slightly hazy gold-yellow colour with a medium white head and a little lacing. Aroma is dry grass and pulpy/meaty fruits plus Belgian yeast and some candy sugar. Taste is sweeter than expected but then the Belgian yeast and some spice balance that out. Dry finish. Much more than I expected for a "blonde".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ladyface. Hazy golden with a one and a half finger white head, fair retention. Belgian yeast with some lemon and pear atop a wheaty background. Flavor is just a little sweet--blindy, it reminds me of their wit with the spice and wheat notes, but itís lacking the perfumery florals (not as strong here, anyway). Back on track there is light toasty malts and some grassy hay notes, however light. Bitterness peaked at a 2, slightly herbal in the semi-dry finish. Light to moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Much more than I expected by the name.
