roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2003
I bought this beer because of the bottle. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) an orange golden with small head, maybe 3/8's inch. Better looking than some other blondes. Aroma is of corn and straw. Flavor has a bit of honey, but more pine, and then some more straw - nothing very strong, not too much to taste here, but a decent brew. Nothing special. Very drinkable, no hint of alcohol. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Golden colored with a fluffy white head. The taste is slightly malty with notes of spices and fruits. Finishes kind of fast.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Hazy orange body with a thinnish off-white head. Aroma of curacao, coriander seed, wheat and apricots. Light-bodied; Sharp astringent taste up front with some fruity sweetness. Aftertaste shows bitterness and not much else. Overall, not strong and not pleasing. I bought this 75 cL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 11-April-2004.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Bonze with some sticky head. The aroma is sweet with some malt & grainyness. Flavor is sickeningly sweet with metallic hops and some toasty grungy finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours amber with a rocky head and nice lacing. Honey aromas followed by brown sugar, citrus, hops and some yeast. Mettalic flavor, yeast, citrus, stale honey, and hops. Thin body with a metallic aftertaste.

Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

NIce package; the ceramic bollte and swing top were classic. palate: fruity and hoppy with a splash of alcohol flavor on the backend. Over all a good drinking beer, with some class.

ilovedarkbeer (2220) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Nose of black and green olives at first. Taste is about the same. This beer needs a few minutes to open up before it is drunk. Pours a golden color with a very small white fizzy head. Nose is sweet and sour with some spice and mostly sugar and sweet malt. Taste is a bit acidic and sweet. There is nothing tasty or memorable about this beer. Very dissappointing.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2008
Bottled as "Grand Cru" (BB 10/2010)
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Grassy and fruity (pear, mango) nose. Dry mouthfeel. A bit fruity (mango, peach), some grassy hops. Simple. But bottle is pretty.
