JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 On tap at Marvin, D.C. Another joint with a nice woody ambiance but weak selection, of which this was largely the best. Doesnt feel like it has 7%, thats for sure. Pale straw color, with an appropriate fizz but little notable mouthfeel. Dry and grassy, but a by-the-numbers blonde in the end.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
A- Pours a cloudy orange/golden hue, small white head that is persistent, minimal lacing, lively bubbles S- Nose dominated by hay and grass-like hops, some tones of fruits (apple, pear), sweet yeasty/bready malts, and a touch of alcohol T- Initial taste is dry and bitter hops, followed by some sweet yeast malts and flavors of raisins and apples, alcohol presence near the finish which is again dry, bitter, and overly carbonated M- Light-bodied, watery texture, carbonation is biting and overwhelming D- Easy-to-drink BSPA, alcohol is well-masked, one could easily drink several of these in a row. However, the carbonation is too dominating and it lacks any outstanding qualities that would urge a repeat performance in my opinion.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2009
A reasonable blonde, drinkable and nice but a little average for a Belgian. I used this to try and ween my lager loving friends of Stella. The dunces didnt like it but Ill keep working. Nice enough but much better in the style.

jgb9348 (6003) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Nice hazy golden coloured body with a frothy white head. Very nice! Aroma of corn, wheat, coriander seed, light spices and some cardboard. Medium-bodied; Spicey taste up front with nutmeg, coriander seed and curacao up front. Aftertaste shows spice and some sweetness - nice and flavourful. Overall, more of a tripel than a blonde-Nice for the style! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle that JonR888710 purchased on 23-June-2005 at his place.

A clear golden colored beer, with a nice thick white head. The aroma is malty with a lot of fruits, like citrus and peaches. The taste is a little bitter, malty and fruity, peaches, citrus and some apples. It is some spicey too. The aftertaste has a long time some bitters.
