BelgiskOlklub (1078) - Viby J, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Large frothy white diminishing head, spare lacing. Cloudy yellow body, heavily particulate. Aroma of hay, straw, honey and vanilla. Medium body, thin/oily texture and bitter finish. The flavor is moderate sweet and bitter, and with some flavor of sour milk.

KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2008
[Courtesy of yespr - session @ yespr] Hazy golden with medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma with yeasty notes. Same goes for the somewhat sweet flavor that also holds coriander notes.

yespr (44706) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Light acidic aroma to slight brett. Flavour is dry malty, light caramel flavour. Goes into a slight caramel note and spiced note. Nice mellow finish.

larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2008
Huge offwhite coarse head. Yellow body made slightly hazy by small floating particles. Once the rest is poured it goes hazy yellow with floaties. Bready, yeasty fruity aroma with spicy, soft metallic hop notes. Sweet fruity, spicy taste with herbal, grassy notes. Sharpish, mealy mouthfeel with some alcohol heat. Dry wooden metallic fruity aftertaste. With all the yeast in it becomes sweeter and less sharp; taste goes more herbal and, unsurprisingly, yeasty. Nice, quiet blonde Belgian. (0.33l bottle from the wine monopoly. BBD Jan ’09.)

11.2 oz bottle - Pours hazy gold with an ample white head. It smells of yeast with an inviting lemony zest. The flavor is of yeast and malt with good fruit notes of banana and lemon. It’s fairly light as a blonde should be, but is definitely not watery. I quite enjoyed it. Apparently many other people were less impressed.

2.9
Finn (7513) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle 0,33l. Golden colored. A large fluffy head. Aroma of hay and malt. Rounded, sweet fruity flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Unclear last pour.

2.4
themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2008
One of the least distinguishing Belgian ales I’ve ever experienced. Enjoyed from the Identified brewers own labeled trappist glass, this pours a hazy golden yellow with little head. Much more sour than I care to have on my palate. Aroma isn’t inviting. Definately something different going on here.

3.3
RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Slightly cloudy gold with some tiny visible particulates and a half-inch thick white head. Tangy, citrusy fruit flavor with banana sweetness up front and a bit of citric bite behind it. Very noticable alcohol presence, a bit weird for 6%. Thick on the palate with some very nice lacing. Very good.

3.6
goozen (4045) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle 0,33ltr: Another typical Belgian blond but this one is one the better ones, sweet starting and also citric taste and some bananas.

3.6
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours golden w/ a tall, semi cremy froth. Superb hangtine reducing slowly to a full canopy and a fluffy, sticky ring. Mild aromas of crisp lemony citrus. Medium nectar w/ ample carbonation and very expansive on the palate. Bright and crisp, this brew is very refreshing. Well balanced w/ mild flavors of banana, citrus, and a touch of cola. The finish is bittered nicely w/ a twig of acidity to cleans the palate.
