Poured from 33 cL can into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a slightly hazy lemon hue with 1/2 inch bubbly white head that quickly recedes.
S: Soft citrus, white pepper, and Belgian yeast.
T: Follows aroma, but distinctly weaker.
M: Light body. Some malty sweetness. Lacking the body/feel of a Belgian blonde ale.
D: Underwhelming and not a good example of style. Would look elsewhere.

Nogne O Blonde is one of the strongest-tasting beers I've tasted. In its simplicity, the taste is strong, short and (mostly) without flavour nuances. Even though this alcohol content is 4.5%, the flavor strength is the same class as that of 8% of beers. Personally, I'm not a real friend of strong beers, so the points will be slightly down - and the lack of flavour nuances also drops points. A good beer for lovers of strong beers.

FINNISH: Nogne O Blonde on yksi vahvimman makuisia oluita mitä olen maistanut. Yksinkertaisuudessaan maku on vahva, lyhyt ja vivahteiton. Vaikka tässä alkoholipitoisuus on 4,5%, maun vahvuus on samaa luokkaa kuin 8% oluilla. Henkilökohtaisesti en ole tosi vahvojen oluiden ystävä, joten sen vuoksi pisteet jäävät hieman alas - ja myös makuvivahteiden puute laskee pisteitä. Hyvä olut vahvojen oluiden ystäville.

Cloudy, yellowish corn colored liquid. A touch of green. Small head initially that leaves a couple of streaks on the glass.

Clean aroma of vanilla and pale malt dust. Like visiting a maltster. There's a bit of perfume as well.

This comes across as slightly Belgian, slightly sour and slightly bitter. Overall, it's interesting, different and begging to be tried and considered. Thin bodied and highly carbonated, but it still works. The aftertaste is brief and bitter with a bit of yeast bite.

Overall, I like this version of a Blonde if only because it is so different.

Appearance: pale, very cloudy yellow (unfiltered, unpasteurized). Lots of carbonation. Big light foamy head with good retention.

Smell: a fairly strong hops smell escaped as soon as I opened the bottle, with a more faint hops smell once poured. With slight citrus/piney tones.

Taste: Hoppy, but only slight bitter taste.

Mouthfeel: A little bit heavier than I was expecting. Smooth drinking, well balanced.

Overall: Overall a good beer, not too light, not too heavy... Would be good on a hot summer day
