ogivlado (8097) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -Cloudy yellow/golden coloured, small airy white head, lots of yeast sediment floating in the glass. Malty, fruity and very spicy taste with something that I don’t like (someone said curacao???). Sweet finish.

jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Bottle purchased at ABC liquor (Carrollwood, FL). Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Foamy lingers nicely along the side of the glass. Aroma is fairly sweet and includes white grapes, yeast, and mild spices. More of the same with the flavor with tastes of fruit (mostly gapes) and spices. Lively carbonation that dances on the tongue. Dry, slightly bitter finish.

nearbeer (5599) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 33 cl, bb 26/02/09. Cloudy golden pear-colored with a medium-sized, lasting foam. Aroma is mild clove, grapes, and apples with some spicy dry grass. Flavors of spicy yeast, clove, some mild apple and pear; slight bubblegum, wheat crackers, alcohol, and cardboard. Light body is soft, with a sufficiently dry finish, is mostly smooth but maybe a tad bit too frothy with carbonation. Mild, balanced flavors make this one highly quaffable

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, this was a very good and classic tasting blonde.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2008
Tasted 4/18/08. 330ml bottle. I can hear the hissing effervescence as the bottle opened. Hazy and sedimented with an amber honey hue. Finger width of thick white head. Bready doughy yeasty aromas with notes of bananas and slightly floral. Medium bodied and dense. Sticky and cloying yet light palate. Chalky yeasty flavor. Fruity esters. Green apples and tart berries. Orange citrus and floral. Slight hops with a sweet finish. Mild spice. Decent, but not overly so.

2.7
Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pour was a dirty yellow color with little head or lacing. The aroma and flavor were both of overripe fruit. Really sweet and a flat mouthfeel. I can’t say I enjoyed this one much.

3.3
kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2008
750ml bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Florida). Pours cloudy golden caramel with one finger white head that dissipates to a thin head fairly quickly. Particulate matter clearly visible. Nose is slightly sweet like honey but also slightly bitter. Flavor: slightly sweet and sour initially with a hint of bitter on the finish. Very faint honey and caramel overtones.

3.3
dmac (6451) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2008
11.2 oz bottle purchased at Shangys back in December. Pours a clear orange gold with lots of floaties from the bottome of the bottle, lots of effervescence and a large pillowy bright white head. Aroma of green apples, yeast, brown bread and tropical fruit. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. flavor is yeasty with notes of grains and fruit, not quite as good as the aroma lets on though. As far as blondes go this one smells nice but doesn’t back it up, very true to life as far as I have found.
