Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) I thought Des Fagnes filtered their beers, but this golden beer is slightly hazy with yeast even on top of the head. Fruity with a pronounced sweetness, almost overly sweet. Go for their Brune instead. 190702

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden color with a smll but lasting head. Very fruity, yeasty, sourish but sweet grapefruit aroma. Sourish, medium-dry, fruity and slightly papery flavor. A touch of alcohol, but it’s not disturbing. Medium-bodied, quite foamy-carbonated palate. A quite mediocre blonde, but pretty balanced still.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2005
25 cl bottle, bbe June 2006. Crystal clear, light amber, unusually large bubbles in the pearling and in the frothy, slightly off-white head, which is relatively unstable. Rich bouquet of aromatic hop flowers with some sweetness in the background, but finishing with rubber-like notes. The flavour is rather dry and somewhat flat, revealing caramel and metallic notes, which are retronasally even more expressed. Light acidity, light spiciness and fruitiness. A pleasant summer beer, but not much more.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
White head on a hazy yellow body. Taste is pretty sicy with hints of coriander and other fruits. Hoppy flavour. Very enjoyable.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
Oxidized and spicy nose, coriander, citrus and pepper. Anise notes on the palate with some honeyed candy sugar. clean and soft mouthfeel with a nice lingering finish.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2005
Bottled 25cl (BB 04/2006)
Hazy yellow with medium white head with big bubbles. Aroma has dominantly cardboard then some grassy and coriander notes. Salty bitter flavor in the start, palate has overflowing coriander and hoppy flavors. Juicy but hard and salty finish. Outlook and aroma don’t promise much but this is really enjoyable blonde.
