Blonde qualifie trs sobrement par son brasseur de blonde houblonne. Avec un houblon du Kent dailleurs. Niveau abv de 5,5 %. Exemplaire jeune, cueilli en direct la brasserie. Couleur jaune clair brillant, au lger voile de levure. Bulles moyennes, trs peu nombreuses. Mousse qui forme un nappage soyeux 1 mm, bien tal et constant. Armes de malt clair, houblon de classe, fruits blancs, camomille, pointe de brett. 1re bouche douce soyeuse, avec malt clair, houblon, fleurs blanches. Arrire-bouche trs douce, ronde en texture, la belle amertume. 2me aux sublimes nuances malt/houblon. Arrire-bouche avec une amertume frache, de caractre. 3me avec houblon, tabac blond, fleur de lin. Arrire-bouche incisive, prcise, nette. Du grand art. Longueur forte, dense, aux importantes nuances de houblon. Jambes fines, groupes, trs belles. Levure douce, fine, trs belle ligne. Alcool bien adapt au genre. Finale de pure classe. CONCLUSION: cette bire est davantage une ipa quune saison, comme class par ratebeer. Le principal tant videmment lampleur de ses saveurs et le plaisir de sa dgustation, en suivant ltoile du Nord!!

mile (3872) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, faint fruitiness and light citrus, faint spiciness (coriander), light some herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness, light citrus and spiciness, some herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish, light citrus and spiciness, herbal hoppyness. OK dryish and decently hopped saison. Body is bit thin and in the finish bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy. Could use more body and fruitiness to balance bitterness.
