3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
14.11.2009, 0,75l Bottle. From Vinmonopolet. Yellow colour with white head. Hazy. Aroma is Wheat, yeast and basement. There is a strange taste to this beer. But there is also a lot of nice "blonde" flavours.
Ten minutes later: The strange taste isn’t that strange anymore. This beer is really getting better the more you drink. This was my rateber number 500!

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Copper, big white head. Smells of apple and melon, yeast esters, light malts and spices. Moderate sweet, quite spicy, nice fruityness, quite lots of yeast character as well. Moderate bitter, spicy finish with a touch of apple peel. Interesting biere de garde; one of the better ones i’ve tried.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour. Meidum-sized white head. Floral hops and wheaty. High carbonation level. Nice and mellow malt flavours with a strong wheaty note. Initially it feels a little like a witbier, but this beer is definitely stronger, and the yeast is slightly more characterful. More esters and more fruity. Spicy, from hops and yeast. Finish is dry and bitter. Very nice.

Bottle from Ryan. Gold, white head, tiny carb bubbles. Doughy bread up front, toasted malt, yeasty, dusty, light floral, light honey. Flavor on par. Yeast character comes through a tad more in the flavor, tiny bit of residuel sweetness, peppery finish. Medium mouthfeel, fades to silky smooth mouthfeel. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden beer with medium white head. Aroma is pleasant: complicated, slightly sour, citrus and some grass and pine needles are found. Flavour is quite similar than aroma, anyway flavour is quite dry and some spicyness and slightly musty in the end. Quite easy to drink but still even slightly oily meaning that nice beer to drink. Page 24 Blonde Réserve Hildegarde is refreshing beer with complicated aroma and flavour; interesting summer-beer.
