COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Jacobsen Saaz Blonde er brygget efter belgisk tradition. Den lyse overgærede øl er mellemfyldig og har en forfinet karamelsødme afbalanceret af en blød bitterhed. Duften er frugtig med tørre anelser af kvan, nelliker og koriander – afrundet af en duft af fyrrenåle. Farven er lys gylden med et flot blondt skum.

English: Saaz Blonde is brewed according to the Belgian tradition but with Czech Saaz hops. It has a light colour with a blonde head. The flavour is fruity, contrasted by the dryness of angelica, clove and coriander. The aroma is rounded by a pine needle character from the Saaz hops. The finish has a moderate bitterness. Enjoy at 5-7 degrees Celsius.

rand (1820) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 26, 2017
Bottle 33 cl / Coop - Neuchâtel (CH). Luminous amber with a nice ivory head with big bubbles. Malted and fruity aromas, banana, apricot, clove and toffy. The taste is soft, sweetened with an average roundness. Notes of roasted, caramel, yeast and fruity intense. Spicy and little bitter otherwise a few herbs and pine. Interesting length with residual sugar.

Piepenhenrich (1229) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
Well-crafted, interesting range of flavors that make for a good, non-standard beer. It's elegant bottle and overly promising description, however, made me expect a little more. Good, though.

DijkBier (560) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2017
Bottle in Copenhagen pours clear dark golden with white head; the head directly falls down, but that might be the glass (!...). Aroma is malty, caramel and fruity, yellow fruits. Taste is more than medium sweet, ripe banana. Rather low carbonation; and the sweetness brings a sticky mouthfeel. It’s a specific brew, but might need more balance: less sweet, more bitterness.

A bit dissapointing, after reading the description. Light version of a belgian ale.

En meget speciel øl. Der er mange nuancer af frugt og en humle der ikke brænder så meget igennem.

PapaCanard (177) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Belle bière plutôt douce et assez légère au goût malgré ses 7.1%vol.! Robe blond foncé, peu de mousse. Arrière goût de banane. Exotique.

MrOrla (3529) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017
Tap. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spice, quite fruity, slight marzipan note. Rather sweet, loads of yeasty character, marzipan, banana like feel, light bitterness.

mansquito (6896) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2017
At the airport: pours golden with white head. Aroma is light Belgian yeast and vague sugariness. Light hoppiness. Kind if sweet. One dimensional.

caribou43 (1182) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2017
I bought this bottle in one coop in Lausanne. I drank it tonght at home with my wife after a long day, sunny and beautiful. I was personnaly disappointed with this beer, of course it is just my own impression. The date of the bottle said until september 2017, they write about the style: Belgium golden ale or I am stupid or they were drunk doing these million of hectoliters but it is really noy a Belgium ale, I could say that it is a kind of imperial lager. At the beginning with the first sip, the impression is not that bad, malty, some honey, sugar, few hop but when you take the second or the third one, the taste is becoming metalic, hard notes of alcool, astringent, I don’t know where they take the saaz hop but they took it from a another planet, boring and soapy notes at the final.

anstei (2608) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle from Coop. Pours clear amber with a little head. Aroma is strong brown malts, caramel, little fruity hops, some pine, caramel. Body is medium, rather sweet, with a low but lively carbonation, turning more bitter towards the palate. Rather hefty in texture, and only turns Belgian on the palate. Okay.
