3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy iced color. Thin head that lasts quite a while. The nose reminds me of grape juice. Mildly malty with a slight bitterness on the end. Tastes like a great session beer but at 6.6%, watch out.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looking at some of the previous ratings maybe I missed something while sampling Petrus Blond. Crisp medium bodied ale with citrus undertones, and light bitterness. Maybe my opinion was tarnished on this Ale when I saw the hip & trendy label. I thought it destined Petrus to an average Belgian ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color. Fruity notes in aroma and flavor. Thin, fuzzy head that dissipates rapidly. Interesting combination of flavors--banana, citrus, spice. A nice beer, though not particularly remarkable.

Bottle BB4 10/07/10. Thin head even in a Chimay glass. Hazy golden amber. Very clean aroma, only a light fruit scent. A certain tastiness to it though. Somehwhat chalky dusty finish. In between a long light mellon and citrus flavour. Kind of refreshing.
