Clear golden colour, with a small head that holds and leaves some lace and a ring. Smell of cloves. And more cloves. And then some fruits, bananas, peaches, coriander. Medium carbonation, medium to full body, thick palate with noticeable alcohol, like rum or whiskey. Taste of spices, cloves, banana, fruits. Very good.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Dorada limpia, de bonita espuma poco duradera. Aroma con base malteada y notas frutales. Bien de cuerpo y con gas presente. En boca sabor frutal y notas espaciadas. Alcohol presente, difícil ocultar 8 grados, pero no exagerado. Final seco. Buena sin estar entre las mejores del estilo.

Senka (902) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2015
33cl BBE02/04/16 Gentle oak aroma. Malty and fruity. Strong banana aroma on opening. Pours gently hazy straw yellow with thick, beautifull snowwhite head. Head retention is beautiful. Aroma of cloves. Medium bitter. Some simple hope selection. Spicy and gently fruity. No alcohol in taste. Above average carbonation. Slightly below medium body. Slick a bit oily. Soapy finish with some dryness. Interesting BSA to sample, but I suggest to share the bottle.

Pours a yellow glass of beer. Decent and rather refreshing strong Blonde Beer.

Icedwarf (716) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Helder levendig geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is fris zuur, licht hoppig bitter en enigszins zoet, honing, gras en citrus. Erg goed, echter ietwat waterig. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Not so good as the Blonde Dorée version, that was much better! This one has a taste that is not so nice.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 4, 2015
330ml bottle (Wines of Gallilee)
Ricey boozy aroma, not much else. Tastes of bugger all. More adjunct than beer. Booze not so well hidden. Good fuel for a lamp. Tasted better with the yeast added, but the above was written with the yeast added.
