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.

Blonde (duh) with a medium head. Slightly spicy yeasty flavor with a dry finish. Solid but unspectacular.

Ernest (6257) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), moderately yeasty (mold, cobwebs), with a note of clove, hint of pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Kind of dull, and a little tongue-coating in the finish (yeasty-filmy). Not bad, but not that great either.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), lightly malty (toasted grain), with notes of clove, pineapple, orange peel, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Clearly the tripel’s kid brother...quite similar overall, just a little less rich (but more quaffable). Very clean, nicely balanced, and with a really nice yeast strain. And like the tripel, it’s not an in-your-face example...its beauty lies partly in what it does NOT have (overblown esters, aggressive/cloying sweetness, etc.).

Draught
Most likely served too cold. Little in the way of aroma, a pleasant palate and a fruity taste. Goes down well, but not spectacular or even tasty, just bland.

Ungstrup (29473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a huge off-white head. The flavor is sweet spicy, while the flavor is more fruity - especially with peach coming thru, but there is also a spicyness lying in the background.
Earlier Rating: 12/3/2002 Total Score: 3.6
A hazy yellow beer with a very nice head. It has a very nice fruity ale aroma. The flavor is of unmalted wheat malt, nice sweetness, slight bitterness, and orange. Really a nice blonde beer.
