esox (1036) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Deep orange and hazy beer with a medium, firm and durable head. The aroma is sharply spiced and herbal, somewhat caramelly and fruity. There´s at least banana esthers and maybe cherries? The aroma is a bit yeasty too. Flavor is moderately bitter, dryish and there´s some sour fruitness in the finish. Long, bitter finish with yeast and some berries and a hint of alcohol. Palate is medium bodied, a bit thin and slick. Long and bitter finish. Very easy to drink. Nice spiciness.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2008
Biggish offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Fruity softly metallic pepper aroma, quite mild. Sweetish fruity soft metallic peppery taste with bubblegum notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish peppery tropical fruit aftertaste, somewhat watery. It’s OK, but not very special. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2008
Golden color with a frothy white head that stays forever. Fresh malty aroma with hints of dried fruit and yeast. Quite plain sweet malty flavor with spices, fruit and a touch of sourness. Bitter vinous finish. Lightbodied and well carbonated.

Embrouille (2826) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 1, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2009 Bottled 33cl. It pours a deep golden beer with a decent head. The nose is of glue, brown sugar and hops. Poor taste. High bitterness. Dry finish. Additional comment: A rather nice belgian ale. Enjoyed it a lot more the second time. Still staying with the initial rating though.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 1, 2008
Tasted 30/10/2008, 330ml bottle from Regionals. Hazy orange gold, white head. Richer bready malt than I get from most blonds, balanced nicely with a decent little combination of clove and spicy orange-like hop. nice pithy bitterness in the finish. Decent beer that’s a good step above the average blond on the streets of Wellington (I’m thinking Leffe and La Trappe rather than the ladies).

matt7215 (2167) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
330 ml bottle from a LCBO gift pack. pours clear golden with a mis white head. pale malt and belgian yeast aromas with some hops. the flavour is similar to the aroma with nothing major good or bad to point out. a good solid session blonde belgian ale.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle 0,33l. Golden colored. A bit hazy. An OK fluffy head lasting a few minutes. Pleasant aroma of yeast and some spice. Well rounded flavor of spice with sweet hints. Malty and fruity aftertaste - lasting for a while. Dry bitter finish. KI=2.

armando629 (2406) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2008
The label has a new design, but in my opinion the old design was better... The beer has a hazy amber appearance with a nice head. Aroma of sweet and fruity citruses, a hint of buttery-creamy perfumes. Smooth mouthfeel with a spicy sweet taste, some hop. Nice but i’ve waited more about that beer.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2008
<i>Bottle.</i> Pours a hazy, light amber with a big, but diminishing, off-white head. Some lacing. Sweetish aroma with a citrusy sourness. Yeast. Sweet flavour and a nice blend of candy, yeast and citrus. Alcoholic finish (in a nice way) with lots of yeast, and some lingering grassy notes. A bit too much carbonation. A decent beer. <i>24-09-08.</i>
