COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered.
Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij until 2005
Real Blond Ale
A combination of strength and subtlety. A pure malt beer with a wide palette of flavours to drink as an aperitif or to be served with country-style cooking (mussels and chips, herrings, poultry, stews etc.).

From l’Epicerie, Le Bon Marché, Paris
Hazy blond color; generous creamy head, stiff. Medium-light aroma of coriander, light yeast. Dry malt flavor, light citrus fruits and coriander, a bit too much yeasty. Not bad but it can’t match a real Belgian Ale.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2009
Bottle thanks to my bosses at utobeer. Alround rating: Pale and slightly grainy malts, grassy peppery hop, belgian yeast dominates, wehat character dulls it all to make it drinkable, but its boring.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle from Le Bon Marche. Pours hazy orange gold with a frothy five finger head. Smells like peach and hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. There’s clove and light stone fruit. Makes me think a bit of pickled peach. Pretty dry with light, light funky notes. Ok, it’s Belgian! Really good.

Bottle, 6%. Cloudy yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is OK spicy, clovey and sweet with a bit of stale bread and paper.

Bottle, 75 cl with Leen and Paul @ Wimereux, yesterday. almost clear golden color, with a white head. Aroma bit yeast, spice and malts. Medium body. Taste very sweet (lik a Leffe), malts, bit yeast. Noire de slack is better.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours slight cloudy orange with a collapsing off-white head. Light wheaty and spiced aroma with a whiff of orange peel. Yeasty and wheaty aroma. Mild spiced flavours appearing, build upon a nice medium sweet caramel malt base that gradually takes over. Mild yeasty finish. Light yeasty/wheaty brew - yet smooth and nice.

Bottled (thanks omhper!). Hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma is zesty, yeasty, wooden and mildly yeasty. Flavour is fruity, yeasty, wooden and also quite herbal. Wellbalanced brew, also quite refreshing.

Hazy orange-yellow color, decent cloudy white head, some lace. Citrus, grass, paper and sweet fruits in the nose. Fruity, refreshing blonde. Apricot, fruit sugar. Good malty backbone. Suprisingly tasty French brew, very Belgian.
