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.

Bottled 25cl (BB 12/2005)
Hazy dark orange, lots of floating yeast. Steady white head. Hioney sweet aroma with notes of orange, cardboard and metal. Lemon acidy flavor, fruity, a bit sweet, crisp carbonation. A bit Orval like. Short finish, needs longer hop presence.

Golden color with huge white head. Aroma is first like in rubber balloon, then itís more citrusy hops and licorice. Medium-bodied. Hides alcohol very well. Malty, hoppy, yeasty. Some dry anise in the flavor. Short bitter aftertaste. Well-balanced and well-done.

Golden colour. Nice, thick, foamy white head. Fruity, vanilla, spicy & slight hoppy nose. Flavour is pretty much the same, but has a little yeasty, metallic finish. Full bodied. This is good stuff.

Iíve been pseudo looking for this brew for some time. Iím not sure why, but when beerbuzzmontreal offered I didnít hesitate to trade. Light golden color with a touch of haze. Tall creamy off white head that settles to a solid lid leaving small islands on in the wake. Light fruit fused with mild licorice, anise, white pepper and dry yeast seem to fill the nose. Marzipan and vanilla seem to be on the side. Mild nuts, ginger, and anise flavors. This is a liquid pfeffernuesse cookie. Finish is dry and spicy. Almost to strong, as there is a long bitter spice linger. A later sniff reveals Grand Marnier, interesting. This one does seem to mellow the further one gets into the bottle and the warmer it gets. I wish this was a 750 as this just keeps getting better with each sip and now Iím down to my last couple ounces. Iíll seek this one out again.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
75 cl bottle. Belgian blonde with great complexity and a high alcohol % which is fairly well hidden. It tastes like a classic. But could be a bit smoother and softer in my opinion. Thereís almost too much going on around my tastebuds...

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2005
75 cL bottle. Clear, golden, straw color with large white head and nice lacing. Slight bubble gum aroma with sweetness. The flavor has orange peel and some cucumber (with the skin). It is quite effervescent and that brings out the hops nicely. It is somewhat dry at the finish. Delicious beer, love this style now, too.

Bottle. Do not underestimate this beer. I am not a huge fan of the Belgian Blonde variety, but this is a very distinct beer. Aroma is very well scented of fruits and spices, just excellent to breathe in. The taste is slightly citrus with a very sweet and slightly spicy finish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Excellent blond. Bottle conditioned hazy blond appearance persistent whitish head. Spice, honey, vanilla, lemon, pepper, yeast all meld together nicely in aroma. More complex than your average blond.
