harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle at the Rake thanks to Richard. Hazy gold lasting off white head. Yeasty aroma. Decent fullness in mouth. Some spice. A bit like a Belgian spicy blonde beer with elements of biere de garde.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a hazy, pale golden-orange body under a decent white head leaving lacings. Quite lovely spice touch in the aroma, citrusy with a pleasant grainy imprint. Yeast notes and a suiting barnyard hint. Really refreshing and quenching with a nice blend of pale malts and citrusy hops. Quite sweet, but that just suits the beer, and the finish is as dry as it should be. Some yeast and a fine bitterness also find it’s way down the throat. Medium to full body, slightly warming and pleasantly carbonated. This was a nice surprise after too many mediocre French beers. 090919

TBone (12335) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2007
Bottled 75 cl (BB 12/2008)
Golden color, no head. Apple cidery aroma with light spices. Sweetish pear cider -like flavors mixed with harsh maltyness. Actually not very beer -like, more like drinking bitterish cider. Very similar to ambree-version. Flat mouthfeel, no carbonation. Weird.

Flavour is sweet, very malty, light peppery, ginger, dry, light piney. Long, vinious and bitter finish. Nice.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2010
750 c&c from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy, dirty gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is mildly earthy and somewhat fruity. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt with a lot of earthy muckiness. Not really sour, though the fruit and spice sort of suggest that. It’s actually rather refreshing. Damn tasty too.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle from fish and beer, copenhagen. clear orange, smooth white head. "belgian blonde" like aroma, lot less grass and hay than most other french biere de garde i’ve had. fresh, slightly spicy flowery aroma, malts, nice. flavor is surprisingly sweet, exotic fruity and not really your typical "belgian blonde". Nor does it taste like any of the biere de garde i’ve had. Flavor is exotic fruity, yellow fruity, flowery from hops, lots of sweet malts balance, ends dry, bitter and slightly bittersweet from the fruity notes. Alc. level works well with the beer.
