What a fun blonde beer this is. The nose is deliciously malty. The overall flavour is fruity, with hints of sweetness and a warm alcohol glow, which tapers off into a slightly bitter finish. We launched this classic beer in 1983, making it our oldest high-fermentation beer, which is re-fermented in the bottle.

Hugh (210) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2008
Returning to this beer after at least ten years of ignoring it because it used to be terribly boring. This time it announced that it is bottle conditioned, which was not then the case. God, its still pathetic. A wishy washy nothing of a beer with an infinitesimally light, rice brewed body. And there is no yeast visible in the bottle, which perhaps explains the spectacular underachievement in the flavour department. Alcoholic water.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2008
330 ml bottle. Golden colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized head that clings to the glass. Slightly nutty and malty aroma. Surprisingly bland character. Some malty wheaty flavours, but overall very characterless. Just boring, but not much wrong either.

33cl bottle - The Liquor Collection - Honolulu, Hawaii
Aroma Nice Belgian fruit aroma.
Appearance Golden in color, Nice head and cloudy with yeast.
Flavor A good Belgian flavor. Deep malts, fruity and had a nice easy to drink flavor.
Palate Nice Belgian Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall This was one of the best Belgians I have ever had. Not a fan of this style but this I could drink over and over.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle. Stable and dense two-finger white head. Foggy yellow/golden color. Light skunky hop aroma. Fruit and cardboard notes. Sweet fruity and sugary taste. Mild spices and bready malts underneath. Well-bodied. Sugar and a faint bitterness in the ending. Quaffable but unimpressive .

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JAN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 This is nice, tasty, and drinkable. It is a slightly hazy gold, bubbly, with a big off-white head (though much smaller and more controllable than Duvel or Delirium, Tremens) that is bubbly and dissipates to s smaller head steadily. The aroma is yeast, bread, hints of grain, beans, and a bit similar to Rainier Ale. The taste is similar: sweet malty grain, a hint of orange, a definite, but smooth, warming alcoholic quality in taste and warmth, but less alcoholic than Duvel. It is creamy and soft, but almost too soft, and there is a light alcoholic bitterness and sharpness. It is less complex than the other two named above but very easy to drink.

rauchbier (3872) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle, at ZBF 2006. Pale gold, moderate white head and gentle condition. Trace chalky maltiness in the nose, full bodied and malty sweet in the mouth with some traces of yeast and a gentle blend of flowery hop and sweet malt in the finish.

thewolf (12482) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a clear golden with a nice medium creamy white head. Loads of bubbles in the liquid. Mild malty aroma, some biscuity and light hops. Quite foamy and creamy mouthfeel, expanding in my mouth. Mild mouthfeel with a little tartness and a good citric hops on top of a sweet malty base. Sadly a bit metallic (which is made better by some warmth)

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Too carbonated - too light / too water and unevenly balanced. Stupid looking bottle. Stupid sounding name. Stupid price. The ABV is a good 7.5%, but this beer just lets me down.
