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.

From bottle. Depp golden color with a generous head and lace. Aromas include perfumy hops and spices. Good mouthfeel and body with malt and orange flavors. Dry finish to a decent Belgian brew.

Borresteijn (6289) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle @ de Zotte. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, alcohol, spice. Flavour is spicy, sweet and fruity, alcoholsweet. Too sweet and spicy for me.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2008
750 ml corked bottle. Huge frothy beige head leaving excellent lacework. Hazed, greyish golden, well carbonated body. Very dry and fresh acidulous fruity aroma. Crisp wheaty taste, nicely balaced with a fine bitterness, an orangey fruitiness and some mild spices. Healthy body. Dry, gently bitter and peppery finish. A very refreshing Blonde.

liinis (1763) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2008
75cl bottle. golden with big white head. very acidic and too fizzy/bubbly, better leave it settle a bit. alcohol also pushes strong through.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an unclear golden / yellow colour with long lasting head. Aroma is fruit and spice, coriander. Flavor is again fruit (citrus) and a little spice. Hops kick in as well.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 27, 2008
Hmmmm non mi ha convinto molto: aroma lieve ma non spiacevole, abbastanza agrumoso (arancia? bergamotto acido?); fa una bella schiuma molto compatta e bianca. Ma il sapore è piuttosto disastroso: i 7 gradi e mezzo si sentono tutti, e il resto è un compromesso fra metallico e cappero. La consiglierei con tartine al paté di olive... tuttavia rimane una birra non proprio azzeccata.

Bananamaniac (35) - Kristinehamn, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2008
75 cl Bottle. Not my favourite blonde I tell you A slightly acidic taste from the high, not at all balanced alcohol. The only thing saving this beer from being total rubbish is the nice spicyness and fruitiness.

Pinball (11898) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2008
strong aroma, citrus dominates but other stuff below that. hazy golden with large white head. caramel, honey, grass, refreshing but with a "old-caramelly" undertone. perhaps oats. overall nice brew. but not over the top stellar.

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle at home with book. Aroma is spicey and pale malts, honey and fruity, floural and citrusy. Taste was similar but nicely balanced, peppery yet alround very appealing. Very nicely done and good to get a decent belgian strong ale at last!
