Lunkie (1579) - Glen Iris, - JAN 17, 2007
Sweet malt aroma with stone fruit. Murky yellow colour with thick white foamy head. Sweet malt hop flavour with full fruit. Smooth palate.

UXO (866) - CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of fluffy pure white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: Dupont yeast with saison notes, apple and pear, light citrus, faint herbal. (9/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, very mild tart and funk. (8/10) Palate: light body, moderate to lively carbonation, dry crisp finish. (4/5) Seems to bridge the gap between BSPA and saison, to good effect. A very well-behaved classically Belgian ale that is going down a treat after a hard day’s physical labour in the heat and humidity. It’s also worth pointing out what’s not present: the ABV is very restrained, making this near-double-digit ale quite sessionable. (17/20)

suprchunk (2671) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Golden amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Sugary nose. Sugary taste. Dry as well. Not the best beer out there, but if someone offered me one I’d see what else they had...

lello4ever (268) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2015
Arancio chiara con ampio cappello di schiuma frizzantina. Aroma fresco erbaceo e floreale. Eccellente bevuta, rinfrescante, note floreali, dolcezza perfetta. Media frizzantezza, ottimo corpo con alcol che sostiene bene la bevuta.

Dervock (646) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle - pours pale orange with lots of floating yeast. Aroma is sweet malt, Apple, spice and a little citrus. Taste is sweet upfront with a rapid transition to a spicy alcohol finish. Palate is a bit thinner than expected.

Shark_Pants (469) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
Golden amber pour with generous frothy head and a lot of yeast floaties. Peppery phenolic aroma, with cloves, banana esters, candi sugar. The taste has a little bit in common with their iconic saison, in regard to the yeast character; but differs significantly in strength and inclusion of banana, candi sugar and clove flavours. Nice bitter and dry finish. Light bodied and very drinkable. Really good blond.

rdb84 (344) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
Hazy golden orange, modest head. A: fresh, intense, wheat aroma with citrus notes, banana, barnyard and saison funk. Hint of metal, some cheese. Nice. T: starts wheaty, with saison like taste, hints of corn bread. Develops a creamy, slightly fruity bitterness with faint marzipan note. Ends with a slightly boozy mouthfeel. Medium to full body. Aftertaste is dry, wheaty. Nice Blonde.

Patdelichte (66) - - AUG 6, 2015
Met 8,5 % relatief zwaar blond bier maar hier proef weinig van terug. Heeft een hele lichte, vlakke smaak met weinig bitterheid. Mist in mijn ogen iets onderscheidends en is te neutraal. Desondanks wel lekker fris voor op een warme dag. Hele gave gouden kleur met mooie schuimkraag.
