COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Sorachi Blond är kryddad med den japanska humlesorten Sorachi som ger en rik doft av citrus. Just humlen i denna brygd är odlad i USA. Den komplexa aromen förstärks med dofter av enbär och koriander. Jästen är av belgiskt ursprung. Dock är det mer välhumlat än vad den belgiska traditionen bjuder. Utöver detta innehåller ölet flera olika sorters kornmalt och vetemalt. Ölet är fylligt med stor rondör och inte filtrerat. Det passar utmärkt till både ljust kött, fågel, stekt fisk och naturligtvis i ensamt majestät.

750 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pannuhuone. Rated @ 30.7.2010.
Hazy amber colour with a thick white head. Spicy aroma of vanilla, grapefruit, yeast and sweet malts. Sweet flavour with loads of grapefruit, malts and hops. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice summer brew.

Bottle at Olutravintola Kukko, Kemi
Amber colour beer with white head. Somewhat spicy and flower-like aroma. Quite sweet has grass, juniper and sorachi hops of course. Spicy and semi-bitter aftertaste.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2010
(Bottle) Pours golden with a small off-white head. Thai food notes up font in the aroma: lime, lemon grass, coconut milk and coriander alongside a bready and light toffee-ish malt foundation. Undertones of juniper, oak, vanilla ice cream, cotton candy and mint. Juicy hints of fruit salad also notable - pineapple, oranges, oxidized banana and tart, unripe mango. Sadly, a blanket of buttery, plastic and acetone-ish hints hides the subtle tones of the aroma. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light tart sourish. Notes of juicy orange/lemon lemonade, bready/grainy malt, syrup, cotton candy light apricot, spices, grass and mild herbs. The mouthfeel is clean, a bit tad tart, light round and smooth carbonated. The finish holds green apples, grapefruit and earthy spices. Maybe a whisper of phenols. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 Draught (Stockholm Beer Festival 2010) - Golden in colour. Tea, grapefruit, hops, malt and a hint of spice in the aroma. Fresh taste with notes of hops, malt, lemon and tea all vying for attention.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2010
(Draught@Pikkulintu) Ice-creamy, soft and peachy-fruity nose with evident brett notes. Flavor is pretty much the same with smooth fruit, brett, and some lagerish properties, too. Not very Belgian, but ok.

Brandman (2130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Hazy Coppery body, white head. Aroma has mild fruits and citrus with some light toast. Flavour adds a little piney character. Some body and nice texture, but there’s no yeasty Belgian blonde feeling in this.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
.5l glass from the tap at Glenfiddich Warehouse #68. This a deep gold pour but totally clear, interestingly so. Four fingers of tope head, lasting several minutes. Solid retention and lacing...The aroma is super sweet, way to sweet without being a fruit beer. Sweet is like high fructose corn syrup, hints of lemon, coriander and hops on the end. The taste is also way to sweet, cannot drink this very easily or quickly. Just get sweetness with a light hop finish. This was a servers recommendation and not a great one. Its way to sweet and just boring, nothing worth getting here.

Dedollewaitor (14103) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Pours cloudy golden with a small creamy white head and lacings. Sweet and sticky. Belgium yeast - rather anonymous. A bit of sweet bubblegum and grain - BUT the hops are rather anonymous. Medium bodied. Ends dry. Fine.

laiti (5953) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2012
75 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu. Rated on 29.07.2010
Aroma is malty and sweet with some fruits, citron and hints of hay. Flavour has citron, some grapefruit, spices and bready malt. Not your typical Belgian ale.
