Nice gold color, very grainy, with sweet dominance, fruity, alcohol well hidden. an ok blonde ale, but was expecting so much more, a drinkable brew, but nothing great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75l bottle... unfortunately, not bottle conditioned. Poured a beautiful deep golden colour, with a medium sized thick white head that went away fast. the nose was malty/grainy, with notes of apricot and just a hint of alcohol... The taste was odd, somewhat acidic, notes of banana and alcohol, somewhat grainy ... the mouthfeel feels better than it tastes, nice and smooth. Not really all that special, and I expected more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Fairly full body with a warming alcohol and a distinct fruitiness. A very typical Belgian Blonde by style. 011006

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden-amber. No head. Slightly smoky nose with candyish notes. Thin, slightly smoky & sugary taste with a firmly alcoholic finish. Fairly simple example.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Is Wendelinus trying to appeal to the sweet tooth North American market? It sure tastes like it. The beer starts off well with a delightful distinct and pleasent clovey phenol nose coupled with malt and ripe fruit. However, the fruit is more berry-like than the appropriate citrus. Little did I know this was a sign of things to come. The color is pale amber and pretty but the head has big bubbles that all pop too soon. No lasting head; no lace. The intial taste impression is sweet malt which is fine but it never goes away, which is not so great. It needs to finish drier. Topping this off is a lack of hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. I actually found this beer to be a bit worty, and this coupled with the rather pathetic carbonation led to a kinda flabby presentation. Overall this is a drinkable beer with no killer faults, just a bunch of niggling little problems. It might appeal to someone making the switch from Coke to beer but there are far better blondes to be had.

330ml brown bottle. Deep clear gold in colour, very little trace of a head. Aroma is yeasty, with some spice. Sweet malts, slight fruit, pear, orange zest, light alcohol. Light, dryish finish. Body was light and a bit thin, somewhat spritzy. Not a terribly complex Belgian, but drinkable.

Draught. Weak sour, malty aroma. Small unstable white head. Cloudy amber colour. The flavour is peppery with a hint of vegetable. Sourish aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but with OK carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
malty, prunish aroma. Pours a golden yellow, carbonated, thin white head. Slight sweetness, but mostly flat and uneven, with a musty yeast background.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,75L.
Lightly evanescent and compact head. Yellow golden color, a lot shining and decidedly loads. Pleasant but not much deciding scent; flowery and sweetish notes, rather modest bitter and alcohol tone. Fizzy and prickly taste; light notes of wine cellar and must. Normal end of medium duration. Much simple one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazy dark orange beer with a thin beige head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet with a combination of notes of straw and caramel. Simple, but OK.
