emacgee (4576) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours a soft translucent amber with a two finger sticky frothy white head. The nose is earthy, yeasty, a tad off, basementy, . Flavor is sharp, phenolic, spicy bite, alcohol cuts through, doesn’t have the body to back its 6.6%, mildly sweet. Palate is sharp and spicy.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2009
Bottled. Light gold, small and coarse white head. A tad metallic nose, with mild fruitiness and clean malts, a bit lagery & dull. Sweet, slightly sugary flavor, peppery spices, little yeast, honey and alcohol. Medium bodied, smooth lush carbonation. OK sweet blonde.

Bottle. [thank you, oh6gdx]
Pours golden with a small, fizzy white head. Settles as thin film. Fruity aroma, oranges, grape, yeast and sweet malts. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet, malty and with sweet oranges and apples. Some slight hoppy bitterness with a touch of dryness.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2009
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.

Very clear gold blond color with a light thin white foam. Its a good beer with a strong malty taste.

JFGrind (1977) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2009
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.

berkshirejohn (5826) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2009
33cl bottle from a Leclerc in Colombes, Paris. Typical lager look - amber with a short-lived, soft white head; grainy aroma; rich honey flavour; lacking finish.

bookman10 (876) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2009
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.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2009
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.
