On tap Flying Saucer San Antonio. Every beer at the Flying Saucer seems to taste better when those young ladies deliver it with a smile. Golden hazy with a nice head. wonderful aromas with a ban. flavor.

Well, certainly *pours* blonde looking. Nice head and lacing, too! Aroma is a bit on the sour side with some nice spices, but to style. Ya’ know, the easiest way to describe this is to call it a solid Belgian Ale. Nicely done.

Light, crackery, blonde, spritzy, malty creamy,earthy, dry, fly, jamiroquai....ummm, has a nice grainy middle nearly overpowered by the carbonation, still I like the spritziness and think it’’s tasty and clean, and over all enjoy this (perhaps ),under rated beer.

DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 Sweet, headily fruity snout with hints of lemon rind, peach, orange and alcohol. Possibly a pinch of coriander. Fruity, spicy Blond with a parting note of woodsy dryness. Slightly wheaty and hazy. Leaning towards a Wit. Lots of alcohol for the ABV. Smooth and heavily sedimented. Tasty table blond but nothing to rush back to. (Re-rate)... Intermission from xmas shopping, Cafe Bruxelles, Leiscum. Didn’t think I’d had this. Spritzy, lagery gold absolutely heaped with froth. Woodsy witbier aroma with tropical fruit, peach, pineapple, lemon jelly. Silky spruce, pineneedle-earthy hops and yeasty tang. Creamy pale malt and biscuit with vanilla hints. Top drawer ’Blonde’ big on flavour and drinkability, and upped from a 3.3 to a 3.8.

Golden Blonde beer with nice white head. Aroma is refreshing and crisp, it has some fruits spice and hops. taste is clear and quite dry with a dry-malty character and a nice bitterness in the finale.

BlackHaddock (7413) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle obtained from the brewery, stored a little longer than I intended, best before 2nd Apr 2009, drank 20th Aug 2009. Poured into a Corsendonk branded, stemmed tulip glass. Very pale yellow, cloudy too, good white foaming head sat on top. I left the sediment in the bottle and drank it later, even so the beer had a true misty hue to it. The head had good retension and lacing stayed on the glass throughout the tasting. Aroma was typical Belgian Blonde, yeasty and hay notes. The taste is also typical (good quality) Belgian Blonde; crisp, sharp and refreshing. The 6% sits nicely and suits the feel of the beer, other Belgian Blondes can go over the top with alcohol content, this is just right. Impressed, I thought my slight ageing might effect the taste and review, if it has, then it’s enhanced the enjoyment.

Tiene un color rubio ligeramente fangoso y una espuma blanca. Posee un aroma perfumado y houblonné. Tiene un gusto cremoso y distinguimos notas de limón. No deseca la boca y desarrolla un carácter agradable y amargo en conclusión. Una frescura de salida la hará más agradable. Guardará un abrigo ligero blanco a lo largo de la degustación.

Eerste reactie ondanks het redelijk lage percentage een mooi licht blond biertje met een witte schuimkraag en een volle rijke smaak. Ruikt zoetig en beetje bloemig. Smaakt beetje fris fruitig maar vooral een hele rijke zoete bloemige smaak met tonen van oa honing. Die eindigt met een bitter die door al het zoet op het eind redelijk zacht aan doet.
