Bottle. Hazy yellow color with a medium head. Sweet fruity aroma with a yeasty note. Malty and quite sweet flavor with a yeasty and light spicy finish, but it becomes very watery.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2003
The aroma is sweet, slightly fruity and slightly wheaty. The color is a clear yellow with a beutiful head. The flavor is very fruity with wheat and lemon notes. It is soft, a little acidic and ending on a dry bitterness. It has a good palate.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, big white head. Wheat, yeast, malts and fruits in aroma. Flavour is the same in a very wellbalanced and pleasant mix. Like a good little brother to the triple.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly cloudy golden beer with a creamy, white head leaving some lacework. Marked yeasty aroma and some coriander up there too. Soft and lightly malty with a weak perfumy touch from the coriander. Only the slightest hint of hops in the finish. A very accessible and pleasant "Blonde" that hardly can offend anyone. On the other hand it’s not really very thrilling. 270905

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2004
Bottled. Hazy golden. Estery and fruity. Firm with balanced sweetness and notes of curacao and wheat malt. Some grassy hops creates a nice, bitterish finish. I truly enjoyed this beer!

Travlr (21446) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pretty unremarkable blonde beer with an aroma of malt and straw, Taste is fairly well balanced but ordinary.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2004
Blond color; creamy head. Quite poor aroma, like paper. Ordinary taste, quite dry and a bit spicy, but malty, like a simple and weak Triple.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 6, 2011
Ziemlich viel Kohlensäure ist in diesem Bier. Zu viel, man schmeckt kaum etwas. Bei genauerem schmecken merkt man dann doch einen milden Unterton. Nun ja... ich schüttel die Flasche einfach mal, vielleicht schmeckt es mit weniger Kohlensäure ja besser o_O. Tatsächlich: Hinter der ganzen Kohlensäure verbirgt sich ein feinherber Geschmack, der im Nachgeschmack ein wenig ins säuerliche übergeht. Fazit: Ich will mein Bier vorm trinken eigentlich nicht schütteln! Test vom 20.4.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,5,3,8,8,5
