COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

330ml bottle. Aroma of sweet malt, floral hops and citrus fruit. Flavour starts sweet before a decent dry finish. Good.

Flaske. Flot blonde gul uklar, med kæmpe skum. Duft af hvede og banan med en smule gær. Denne gær slår mereigennem i smagen. Duften blev dog en tand for meget da konen spildte et glas ud over min stakkels skaldede isse.

Adenila (1558) - DENMARK - SEP 13, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 <Thanks to Beerbiker> Hazy golden look with a nice inviting foamy white head. Aroma is full of esters and citrus notes. Especially peach and orange peel comes through. Its spiced up with coriander. Flavor is nicely sweet, with all the aromas repeating themself in your nostrils. Balanced as the bitterness comes through after the initial sweetness, and a sleightly acidic tartness to back it all up. Very enjoyable.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
On tap at Belgo Camden, 12th August 2007. Amber with a smallish but lacy head. Aroma is a mix of wheat and hops and the taste is the classic refreshing blond ale taste of fruit and hops. It reminded me of Affligem and has a similar sweet and full palate. Decent beer, but nothing particularly special.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2007
330ml bottle bought at a Fine Food shop at Kastrup Airport. Hazy, pale orange body with a huge eggshell foam, fast fading. Fruity smell with a coriander touch. Candy sweet taste mixed with fruity ripeness and an underlying spicy profile. Quite well bodied. Dry ending, but still a little too sweet (at home, 05.08.2007).

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2007
Billowing pour spiralling with bubbles. Golden and misty. Tropical fruit, banana, gently peppery spice on the nose. A big glug of citrussy fruit and punchy hop bitterness. Biscuity malts lurking in the background. Silky, unspicy, no-frills Blond with fruit and lacings aplenty.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2007
Hazy golden body and white small head. Aroma has sweet malt, yeast and dough. Aroma is quite complex. Flavor is very sweet and flowery. A slight feel from pepper. Brewed with a big heart.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Rerated in 2007 after sampled a bottle bought in La Roche.
[Sampled in 2003 at Charlies in Cph. with Bo, Pernille and Henrik on the way to DK - Romania: 2-2.] This was one of the first challenging beers I ever had and therefore it got some bad points. Notes of chicken hotwings, perfume, cumin, barbecue. Very special aroma and flavor with, for a newcomers point of view, nonacceptable impressions. I was indeed surprised, but not anymore, now 4 years later.
