Bottle @ Torben Mathews tasting, Randers Bryghus. Nice head with good duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, fruits, malt, citrus and hops. Nice and smooth. stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2011
It’s a bit too sweet for my taste, but I clearly recognize this as a remarkable blonde. Pours with a think resilient white head and a golden body. Give it a whiff and you’ll likely find it florally and fruity, with somewhat of a grassy nose. It’s one of the sweeter ales I’ve tried recently and, after drinking half of the 75cl bottle, I grew somewhat averse its sweetness. The citrus and honey flavors seem to dominate the taste. For me, the taste is saved by a distinctly bitter finish. jaghana (6280) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle 33cl. A clear golden beer with good head and low carbonation. Nose is on resin and diacetyl like. Aroma is sweet, with a fruity yeast, well hoped with grassy and spicy aroma. Dry finish with long aftertaste a bit honey like with a nice bitterness.

Bottle from Carrefour, Citi Europe, Calais, France consumed 15.01.11 Pours gold with reasonable clarity and a with a white head. Big on maltiness, fruity but a fairly non-descript beer otherwise, I’ve had this whole bottle to myself (750 ml) and whilst it was absolutely fine it was also totally unremarkable to the point that I took precious few details down.

Enjoyed at an ESBLS tasting. Tasted immediately after this brewer’s Hildegarde Ambree. The two were quite different beers. This was much lighter in hue looking like a blonde. Some nice spicy pepper. Soft grain, malt and that white pepper. A blonde with a spicy attitude, very nice. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2010
houblon choiffe esque nose, more hopped with green citrus, light pepper. Flavor is more carbonation, yeast, banana, light celery, again very plant like. Short, dry hop finish. Too overhopped, the softness of a BdG is lost and the body thus becomes heavy. EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Pale yellow pour with a white head. Cereal aroma with light nutty notes. Very heavy cereal flavor with lots of honey. Sweet and syrupy. A bit heavy for me. marcus (10669) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy golden with a modest off-white head and a fruit and yeast aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. It’s a bit watery, but has sufficient flavor to make it interesting.
