oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized sparklingly bubbly head, which settles into a smaller head quite fast. Aroma is sweet peach with some hints of other fruits. Also some spicyness and a weak "glueish" hint of alcohol. Flavour is sweet malts, metallic, peachy, fruity and slightly yeasty. Very fruity aftertaste.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2007
Bottle at the Fat Belgian. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, with a slight spiciness. Medium body. Flavour follows the aroma, with a dry yeastiness in the finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

(Bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, wheat, florals, and herbs. Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, and honey.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Orange with a huge, quickly disappearing head. the aroma has notes of fruit, malt and caramel. The flavour is sweetish with notes of caramel, citrus and fruit. It’s a drinkable blond, but very average.

The beer is not as strong has most Belgian ale that I had, but its still quite thirst quenching. The malts are crisp and clean with mild sweetness to it. I enjoy this very much.

11.3 oz bottle. Purchased in 6 pack with other Petrus beers. Hazy redish color, with thick white head. Sweetness and honey flavors. For some reason I haven’t been a huge fan of blondes, but this one wasn’t bad at all.

Beer4000 (4614) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2007
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy red/brown body with an orange head. Sweet and acid aroma. Flavor is a bit sweet, malty with just a little faint hint of the cellar character from Petrus oude bruin. Dry finish. Well balanced, but a bit ordinary.

DYCSoccer17 (3355) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2007
11.3 ounce bottle purchased from a mixed Petrus 6 pack that was purchased at BevMo in Stockton, CA for $11 (half off). Sweet, sweet, candy, sugary aroma initially, with some musty aromas present and some light banana yeast esters. This is a VERY sweet aroma. Quite hazy honey-colored body with a large, frothy, white head present. Lightly bland, sweet maltiness to start, which becomes quite yeasty in the middle. Whoa, theres a little astringent floral funk that seems like a little speed bump, before some more lightly sweet, doughy, yeasty flavors in the finish. This is ok, but a bit strange.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2007
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden with a medium, firm and foamy, lacy head. Acidic, grassy-perfumy-hoppy aroma with grainy, neutral maltiness and hints of dried fruit. Sourish, slightly sweet, quite malty flavor with some iron, and honeyish alcohol in the finish. Medium-bodied, a bit foamy-carbonated but very smooth palate with slight sourish alcohol burn. At least somehow different brew: not too sweet, and with some white-wineous sourness. Quite similar to the Dubbel, but without the roastiness and with more acidity.
