Aroma is of corn and grains. Looks okay, nothing spectacular. Taste is a smooth affair with caramel, some hops and malts. Overall pretty good, not great.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
(Bottle from Tesco’s, Diss, Norfolk) Dark golden with medium bubbles and medium head. Smell is yeasty, with belgian hops evident, a little fruity, a little flowery and some acidity. Flavour is dull, sweet with some flowers and fruit. VERY sweet with only a little bitterness to balance it. Quite carbonated and warming alcohol. Quite good, but too sweet for my tastes when looking for a Belgian blonde. Cloying.

Nutty-ness combines well with the yeast fruitiness. Dry with a semi sweet aftertaste. Good flavor but doesn’t expand. Not an amazing beer but good for what it is.

Ober (2817) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2009
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of sweet malts with fruits. The taste of fresh malts, fruits like citrus, with sweets. A little bitterness in the back. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter.

Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear pale amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Slightly sweet nose. Flavor is slight fruit and malt, semisweet, smooth. $2.25 for a 330ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

3.4
AcctError65545 (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Pours a golden orange with a touch of haze and a nice soapy white head with nice sticky lacing. Aroma is yeast, sweet malts, bananas, and a little metallic. Flavor is slightly metallic, sweet malts, bananas, cloves, dough, bread, fruits, yeast, a little bit of hop bitterness. Other than the slight metallic problem this is pretty good.

dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a coupe of fingers of head. Nice lacing. Smell is yeasty and sweet. Taste is of yeast, malt and banana. Slight alcohol taste at the end of each sip but it’s not overpowering. Not a bad brew but it’s a tad sweet. Not one of the better Belgians that I’ve tasted.

3.4
smith4498 (3670) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours clear golden color with off white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, dough and bananas. Sweet fruity and bready flavors with a slight metallic finish. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation.

3.2
jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Easy to drink, light sweetness, some hints of fruit, spice. Sweetness tends to be too much, but overall not too bad.

3.3
GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
It’s been awhile since I enjoyed a refreshing Belgian blonde, so this was easy to drink on a hot afternoon. The aroma is sweet, fruity and some yeast. Dried fruit, grassy bitterness, sweet with an alcohol bite to it. Color is golden yellow with a large pillowy head. Nice lacing.
