Jado (494) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2013
From 750 ml bottle. Pours a perfectly clear gold with a small white head that collapses to a collar. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of apple, lemon, banana, white bread and a bit of clove. Taste starts off with light apple juice before a lemon zest bitterness comes through. Light banana and clove at the end, before a fairly clean finish. Gently fruity and spicy aftertaste. Not bad at all.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 13, 2013
Big white foamy head over a golden, very clean body. Simple grainy aroma, bit floral, white bread. Light bitter, crisp, icy ;-) Not much to it really. It’s okay but extremely uninteresting. (33cl bottle from La Cervoiserie Limoges)

Super sweet aroma, really fruity and fizzy. Not my type of beer at all. Buy it for the cool bottle.

Gift from the Scotsman. Slightly hazy, thin gold pour. Notes of fruit and orange. Body was thin and finish tasted of tin. Ehhh.

Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2013
From a 750ml bottle on 28/8/2013. Pours a clear yellow with a small head which disappears quickly. Has a slight fruity, yeasty aroma. Flavour wise, it begins with a touch of bready malt, followed by a mild sweet fruitiness (mainly apple), and a bit of Belgian style yeast. Has a fullish body and lively carbonation. Not terrible, but pretty bland.

Not a big blonde ale fan, in general, but this beer was really refreshing after a day in mountains of Chamonix.

crossovert (7019) - Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pour is one of the best I have ever seen. Rivals duvel very much so. The smell is nice, it is vibrant and peppery ,hint of licorice spice and citrus. The flavor is nice, bready, touch of hops, slight metal, licorice. Licorice is cloying a bit in the finish but it remains fairly crisp. I like it.

kidmartinek (3560) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Hazy yellow. Small white head. Anise and orange peel aroma. Body is thick and filling and flavor is malt and anise. Finish is bitter, creamy orange. Remember, its still a "beer" though... not dessert.
