Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2005
33 cl bottle. Nice dough and flowery aroma comes from the puffy white head. Taste is hay with a little bit of honey. An excellent blonde. Light candi sugars and light spices make this awesome.

Grainy, cereal nose with some sulfur, hazy pale gold yellow color, lathery head with some lacing. Looks good but doesn’t quite smell right. Light pale malt body with some citrus and vanilla tones. A fleeting dry spiciness comes at the end. Light and refreshing. Weak, but I liked it overall.

This beer has a light, golden body. The feel is crisp on the palate. I enjoyed the flavor quite a lot.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 24, 2004
33cl BB Apr/06 Had to leave about 4oz in the bottle due to protein precip. Still pours hazy and chunky, very carbonated. Smells of bananas & oranges, floral. Tastes very fruity. Light body, dry, slight bitterness in the finish. OK, but nothing to rave about. Still it has its place as a nice fruity light ale.

On tap Flying Saucer San Antonio. Every beer at the Flying Saucer seems to taste better when those young ladies deliver it with a smile. Golden hazy with a nice head. wonderful aromas with a ban. flavor.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Poured a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Light grape and apple aroma. Hoppy. Nice.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 This pours a pale golden color with a big fizzy head that vanishes in a flash. There’s a rose petal aroma with some yeasty fruitiness. Fairly light-bodied and watery in the mouth although it carries a nice spicy flavor with perhaps a splash of honey. It’s okay, but I think that the good monks of Abbey du Val-Dieu need to work on this a couple more centuries.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Spun-gold, clear, under fizzy bone-white foam. Citric nose, a dash of sour, with a side of flowers,yeasty, lemony, light. Brisk and fruity in the mouth, but low-key in the mouthfeel. Great grab in the palate up front, then mellowing. Very easy and breezy, just like a good blond oughta be..."blond ale", I mean, of course. Just a bit spicy and honeyish in the taste, getting more complex further into the bottle. Very zesty, refreshing, a great dinner chaser.

madsberg (10241) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2004
Bottled: Hazy yellow coloured. Dense huge white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy and has notes of citrus. Flavour is light alcaholic, citrusy and yeasty. Is sweet, dry and light spiced in the end. A harmless belgian ale.

Bottle. Large white head. Pale, golden, very slight haze. Aroma is yeasty and citrusy. Aftertaste has a little spice in it. Not as full flavored as PranQster--which is a very similar taste.
