3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from bestillingsutvalget at Vinmonopolet. Rocky, white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Cloudy, pale golden body. Spiced fruity aroma, mid-dry. Candy sweet taste balanced by a citrus touch and with yeasty fruitiness towards the ending. Dry, bittersweet endnotes. Soft carbonated. Has got its moments (Tromsø 02.06.2013).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an opaque gold, soft large fluffy head that looks great. Aroma is very slight, clean floral notes and a bit of steel; certainly a little metallic. Taste is a bit dry, slightly bitter finish. Not too complex; large carbonation. Nice enough but could use a bit more complexity or ’oomph’.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy golden with a big lacing white head. Fruity aroma. Taste is bittersweet and a bit thin with lots of yeast. Somewhat dissapointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a large cloudy white head of substantial longevity. Nose is classical sweet estery Belgian yeast tones with clove, banana and white-sugary bubble gum as most prominent. Taste is similar, with banana, clove, pale malts, sugar and hints of honey and heather flowers. Medium body, near-fizzy carbonation. Pleasant enough, and reminiscent more of a tripel (albeit with less alco-punch) than a regular blonde.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl from 6bottle sampler bought @Brugge BF 2013. - Lightish Belgian blonde ale with a dry palate, moderate natural hop bitterness, almost Weissbier fruit aromas (citrus, banana) (alas partly due to added sugars) and emblematic Belgian yeast working overtime, providing layered spice aromas. Enjoyable if little exciting, apart maybe the anathemic Weizen crossover notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, peppery and somewhat metallic. Flavor is dry, spicy, slightly bitter. Huge carbonation and decent body. Nice dry flavor with a full body, only lacks a little in power. Well drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Cloudy golden/orange with medium, snowy white head. Nose : tart, fruit cake, banana, red cherry, apricot. Sip : moderate carbonation that foams in the throat. Creamy texture. Sweet grains start with fruity background. Gets dry and metallic. It uncovers more sweet tart and more esters. Ending with flower and bitter/dry aftertaste. Seams a bit complex but out of balance. The mouthful feeling isn't a good thing.
