Jerre (3829) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle, 75 cl. (thx to Yves Vdb)
tasted yesterday @ home.
Clear yellow color, with a small white head. Aroma (low aroma) hoppy, fruity, bittersweet. Medium bodied. Taste very sweet, malty, fruity, a bit hops.
Not a great beer.

Muggus69 (2762) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2007
Corked 750ml bottle, served chilled. Light aroma, bready rice, white sugar, slight tanginess. Pours quite an elegant looking pale straw body with nice beading forming a tight white head with nice lace. Carbonation is on the lively side, syrupy texture, near cloying with sweetness, suprisingly abrupt palate of flavour though. Flavour seems to benefit from some warmth; candied orange, sweet corn, ripe pears, a dry citric tang towards the finish. Finishes chalky dry, metallic bitterness. I didn’t have great expectations from this strong lager, bit too sweet and one-dimensional for my taste, though it’s terribly easy to drink.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle 750ml. Pours a standard golden lager colour with a large fluffy head. No particular aroma, just lager! Sweet and malty with a wheaty aftertaste. Tasted okay on its own and chilled but totally changed when consumed with food. I had a fillet steak and this lager took on a very acidic twist.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2007
(375ml bottle, labeled Krait Prestige) Swiftly diminishing large white head atop clear straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light bread. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, some alcohol, yeast. Medium-full body.

Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours a fairly pale straw with just a little rosy tint. Tons of active white head that settles down to just a few streaks. Fresh herbal soap aroma with a mineral/sulfur note that is subtle enough that it adds texture rather than detracts. Sweet grainy flavor--bagette drizzled with simple syrup. Subdued herbal hops are not quite up to the task of providing balance. Ends of being cloying, and I’m glad I have help finishing the bottle. Oddly, the alcohol hides better than the sweetness. As something that had Rodenbach’s name dropped in the label, I had higher hopes. (Okay. 10 minutes after I entered this rating, I came back and finished my glass, and this had actually gotten significantly more interesting and balanced as it warmed. A bit of vanilla rounds out the aroma. A tart note gives some relief to the sweetnes. Not bad.)

marcus (10760) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2007
This blonde ale poured with a large frothy white head. Its effervescense can be viewed through the side of clear pilsner glass. The flavor is rather sweet with a nice malty character and a hoppy alcohol finish. This is a pleasant drink on a warm day.

3.2
redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Sweet sugary aroma, some malts, and alcohol. Pours light blonde with a strong last dense head. Smooth and malty, hints of hops, cereal flavors, with a noticable alcohol presence. Not all that bad.

3.3
Bart (2936) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2007
Light hazy blond coloured beer with average carbonation and a rather small white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Full palate. Finish is very fruity, hints of hops, malts and a light alcoholic touch. NIce one.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Bottle at beerpassion festival Antwerp. A nice and good tasting beer. A little sweet but for many of us one of the better beers of the festival

2.8
grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Sampled courtesy of DYCSoccer17. Hazy golden yellow with a good amount of froth. Raw herbal aroma (and, some skunk), with light smokiness and shy doughiness. Lightly fruity. Sweet, surprisingly flavor with booze more evident than aroma and more fairly raw hoppiness. Finishes rather thick and sweet with metallic notes. Weird.
