MiP (15407) - Snderborg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2007
Bottle, 7%. Bready aroma with a little phenolic clove. Hazy golden colour. Big, stable, creamy white head. The flavour is mostly of clove, with some CO2. Quite peppery aftertaste. Distinct, uncompromising bitterness. On the brink of getting plastic/band aid phenols. A bit like a stronger Hefeweizen.

ClarkVV (6300) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2007
330mL bottle, 2006, at OBriens on 3/23/07
Clumps of white head sit about above the liquid, while the main part of the head fades steadily to cover, leaving light lacing behind. Copper-peach body is not exactly blonde, nor is it completely clear, despite trying to leave the yeast behind.
Fresh Belgian yeast esters are very seemlessly integrated in to doughy pils malt, giving a creamy vanilla aroma laden with very light nectarines and peaches. Unfortunately, some apple-like flavors (acetyldehyde) seem to be lurking in the shadows and there are very little, if any, notes of hoppiness. Perhaps some nuttiness and very light dry grassiness, but only a touch of aromatics at best. Creamy, whitebread-like doughiness and bland yeast effects all dampen the mood, and theres an underlying vegetal nature, albeit very subtle. Reminds me a lot of Panil Ambre, though this one has more light malt notes of honey and some straw crispness (though its very passing). Medium to medium-low strength of aroma, no alcohol noted.
Dough notes and sweet adjunct sugars give a very weak flavor with somewhat loose carbonation creating a very wet feel on the palate. Ample enough maltiness, probably too much of it actually, contains honey and cream flavors that initially satisfy, but never really go anywhere and combine with a bland yeast note to end somewhat nutty and vacant. What could be either soggy, old hop notes or slightly vegetal DMS notes, lay underneath. Lots of vanillin, but it almost seems like a lagering flaw, as opposed to a pure malt flavor. Not as flawed as Panil ambre and with stronger malt character, but the yeast is pretty unenjoyable and the beer is completely devoid of real character (and crispness).

bu11zeye (13011) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 1, 2007
(Bottle, BB 10/06/06) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, mustiness, and toffee. Flavor of spicy yeast, banana, caramel, and herbs.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of apricot, yeast, syrup and cashew nuts. Medium body and smooth mouthful, flavours of stonefruits, nuts, yeast and sweet nectar. Sweet nectary finish, pretty interesting, but seemed a little thin and sweet in places.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
Cloudy golden body, large white head with good lacing. Barnyard and cheese aroma. Not very tasty but what it tastes is unusual and somewhat pleasant. Malty, cheesy, watermelon, vanilla, sweet, grassy hops. A mix bag that doesnt all stick. Why it bears the respectable 3 Fonteinen name is a mystery to me. Despite owning Jaguar I dont see Ford selling a Jaguar Focus.

haukur (1903) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 19, 2006
bottle (BB 06/06). Surprising, surprising! Golden duvel color with a dence head. Aroma is very different from other blondes, very saisonal but with a more down to earth balance-ness! Massively yeasty with some coriander and spices, maybe some wheat. Nice blonde

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Draught. Pours foggy orange-gold with a frothy white head leaving intricate lace sheets. The aroma is excellent - lots of grassy hops and then notes of cookie dough. Underwhelming hop profile though there is a bit of sharp bitterness that doesnt mix well. The malts are cookiesh but seem too sweet for the most part. Yeasty and alcoholic. Sampled at the restaurant in Beersel on May 11, 2006.

pivnizub (10401) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - APR 16, 2006
Bottle (donated by Yogi_Beera!): Orangey coloured, creamy off-white layer, a bit lacing; robust fruity nose: oranges, lemons, orange-peel with a touch of wheat malt and yeast; only light sweetish, mainly dry fruity flavour with an illusion of acidity, creamy mouthfeel; fruity, citrousy finish with a shy tart bitterness; well rounded with well hidden alcohol......A very pleasant Wheat-beer...........or Ale ?
