Mazama Brewery, Draft. This is a decent blond ale. I was pleasantly surprised, especially since it is in the Blond classification. Good summer beer.

Bottle:   Light, a little fruity, a touch musty and wheaty.   Pale orange, thin frothy white head, little lacing.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Not much of this says Belgian, except the slight mustiness.   Tiz okay, a little refreshing, but middle of the road Blonde.

Draft at SB. Pours a clear medium gold with a loose white head that sticks around for quite a while. Mild cereal and toast nose, a bit of reedy grass there maybe. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light dry reedy grass, cereal, and toasty bread crust on the mid palate. No obvious flaws at all, but a bit too restrained.

On tap, Nitro Mostly clear deep golden witha bright white creamy had,. Very light pale malt with only a hint of Belgian yeast aroma. Some noble hop bitterness but again, very light on the Belgian character. Clean and refreshing, light,.

Very good Blonde Ale. Whatever it is about the Belgian style, but it really works.

Starts out with a nice yeasty, musty aroma, and stays in the zone, but overall is rather pedestrian. Orange gold body with small foamy head. Elements of butter, sweet malt, honey, coriander. Sweet and mildly savory, medium candy finish.

New distro to this area. Aroma was spicy. Flavor was very fruity with lots of pears, peaches and a bit of apricot. Big letdown was the palate, it was just to thin. That aside, it really was not all that bad. I could see drinking this with a nice seafood meal.

Reid (2540) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
22 oz bottle bought from Lifesource in Salem OR $4.99. Says 7.7% alc on label. Pours a clear golden coloured ale , with a large and creamy.thick white head. The aroma is a little subdued but getting notes of spice,yeast and a little hop. Very balanced yeast with some really nice peppery notes above the caramel like malts and herbal hops. Mouth feel is fine and semi-thick with a nice drying finish. An OK beer.

bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly fruity. Med body or nearly. Flavor is mildly spicy (clove) with some fruity ester. Maybe banana. Some malt background. Just goes to show that there are blondes and there are Belgian blondes! At 7.5% mayhap this should be under Belgian Strong Ale. Certainly much more tasty and interesting than so many American blondes that might be in the kolsch class.

Bottle / pours clear copper with thick white head. Nose of yeast, spices, and grain. Taste is of spices, caramel malt, and yeast. Very smooth with dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
