sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2006
(Bottled) Opaque orange color with a white, firm head. A slight aroma of alcohol with lots of fruit and reasonable hopping. Slightly cardboardy, fruity, neutral flavor with aromatic hops. Medium-bodied, reasonably refreshing palate with medium carbonation. A decently-hopped, but not exactly mind-blowing brew.

Consommé sous le nom de Alvinne Blond Extra, Dry Hopped. 7.1% abv.

Couleur orange pale coiffée d’une grande quantité de mousse crémeuse et pleinement persistante. Puissants arômes de verdure, de houblon frais en quantité généreuse, de zestes de citrons et d’ananas sous une base de malt biscuité, légèrement grillé. Le houblonnage joue vraiment sur le côté aromatique plutôt qu’amérisant mais laisse une merveilleuse sensation de fraîcheur en bouche. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne à pleine pour le style, texture ample, carbonatation active et piquante. Bouteille 33 cl, T’Kroegske, Izegem, Décembre 2005.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 7,1% and dry-hopping, says the label. Blonde foamy head. Very soft hoppy, citric aroma, but the flavor comes out with a loud bang, compared to the softness of the aroma. Hoppy, citric and oily at first, but softens up quick in to a not too hopbitter aftertaste. Quite nice. (6 3 7 4 14 = 3.4) Re-rate. Blonde with a touch of orange. Cloudy. Granny Smiths apples and melon in the aroma. Melon, citrus and flowery hops in the flavor. Grapefruit, melon and some hopbitterness in the leathery aftertaste. Complex and thirst quenching ale.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2005
bottled, thanks to Per - cloudy orange colour and almost no foam; a solid flowery and fruity (litchies and pineapple) hoppiness invades the nose with unusual notes of ashes in the background; medium to full-bodied with a clean malt profile; long dry bitter fruity finish - a very good and unusual beer

omhper (25546) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2005
UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 Bottled. Clear golden. Rich aroma of herbal spices. Sweet and softly malty with notes of licorice and banana. Anise and salt in the finish. Hop dominated.

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour, creamy white head. Bitterness is a little harsh......

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2005
ZBF 2005. Pours light golden/yellow, with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty and grassy. Taste is sweet , fruity, and yeasty, which gives way to a slightly bitter aftertaste

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2005
Zythos Beer Festival, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium 2005. Golden colour with a big white head. Yeasty grassy aroma and a dry light alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet light alcoholic finish.

More and more of the beer is now brewed at the Ingelmunster location, and not outsourced. It is unclear whether this is considered a new beer, or a renaming of the Extra Blond, now brewed at home. Clear, slightly peachy-blond beer, with slim white head. Bit vegetable, greenmalt nose, but not too young-smelling. Yeasty. Bitterish, grassy taste, ending vegetable bitter, like Belgian endives, but shortlived. Slick (again, umpteenth time I jot down this word today), velvety MF. It’s quite OK. Yet, if you call your beer " Extra Bitter ", I expect some other punch. Pay the brewer a USA trip, please.
