This wasn’t really my cup of tea, not the best example of this style that I have ever tried. Floral and fru fru, some decent fruitiness, slightly dry base maltiness.

Petrus Blond is slightly red-yellow with medium white head. Aroma is very sweet and there are flowers and also some berries in the background. Flavour is also sweet but it changes much dryer in the end. Carbonation is quite high but still this it nice to drink. Balanced and nice beer and not so over-sweet and juicy-like than Dubbel Bruin from the same brewery.

yespr (35101) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours clear and golden yellow with a dense white head. Solid pilsner and hoppy aroma. Flavour is pilsner malt, solid bitterness. Goes into a dry finish, medium to full bitter flavour.

Bosskie (587) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle bought in Belgium. Generous head, clear dark gold with lots of bubbles. Orange-yeasty, lemon smell. Salty-sour taste with almost no sweetness. No citrics, bit of lemon, nice grainy heaviness, bit of moutiness, hint of caramel.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Lazy hazy yellow, typical foamy Belgian head. First impression is somewhat of a tart sourness. Lots of carbonation. Body is medium light. Decent depth of flavor. Getting a good bit of spiced banana bread, and maybe some cloves toward the end. Pretty decent beer, nothing amazing.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Pours a very hazy golden honey with thick cream-colored head. Sweet and yeasty with a somewhat aged aroma. Flavor is definite sweet/sugared yeast undertones of caramel with hints of spice. Flavor ends a bit bitter/mineraly. Definite carbonation in this ale. This blond isn’t really anything too special. Would not spend the money for this in the future.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle. Been sitting around the store for a little over a year now, so I decided to give it a go. Musty and slightly dusty yeast aroma. Some malty sugary sweetness as well. Pours slightly unclear gold with a white head and lively looking carbonation. Sweet malt and slightly funky yeast on the palate. Really not that complex at all. A bit of basement funk and grassy hops but not a lot else. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
This bronze-colored ale poured wtih a thin off-white head, eliciting a musty aroma. The flavor is caramel malt and yeast with a bitter metallic finish.

GJF (1365) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 12 oz. bottle. Tulip glass. Poured a rich amber/bronze color with a delicate head. Head dissipated quickly, but the lace was quite nice. A pleasing citrusy, spicy flavor with a bit of caramel and a yeasty finish. Quite drinkable, but in the end the flavors are a bit muddied.

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head and a smell of citrus, spice and yeast. Taste is pretty spicey and a bit malty and a bit sweet. Nice spicey bitter finish, I like it
