An easy-going blonde that is all the more easy-going for going light on the spice. Golden and sparkling with a rocky white head. Herbal grainy nose that even has a touch of grassy hop to it. Lightly sweet, softly bitter, lively and off-dry. Subtle and inoffensive spice accent. Quite drinable and usefully moderate in alcohol. Underrated, if unexciting.

Nevalainen (339) - FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is malty, a bit caramelly. Taste is medium bitter, and there is some sweet notes. Fizzy carbonation. Reminds me of weissbeer. Pretty good.

Draught. Clear golden color, medium head. Not much else than yeast and malt. Bit of grass. Sweeter towards the end with some lingering walnut bitterness. Not much substance though

Blonde des Pères, de fermentation haute, et sur lie (ou refermentée, c’est aussi bien …), d’un niveau abv de 6 %. On est donc sur une blonde basique. Mon exemplaire est juste à date, c’est-à-dire qu’il a certainement une bonne année de bouteille. Couleur blond doré à reflets sombres, avec un léger voile. Bulles fines partout, pas très nombreuses, mais vives. Mousse blanc cassé à relief de marécage. Joli. Arômes de blé, houblon, froment, avoine, pointe de seigle. 1ère bouche souple au très bel ensemble malté, avec des fruits blancs. Arrière-bouche bien pleine, maltée, équilibrée. 2ème avec un beau malt et de très belles nuances. Arrière-bouche très ronde, souple. 3ème au magnifique ensemble malt/houblon/fleurs des bois. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, avec une pointe de baies blanches. Longueur avec une belle rondeur, une grande beauté du malt, pointe de miel et du bois blanc. Jambes fines bien marquées. Levure douce, fine, très belle ligne. Finale à la texture remarquable, avec des saveurs encore à découvrir. CONCLUSION : une bière avec énormément de rondeur, beaucoup de saveur, toujours en équilibre, et un allant crescendo parfait. Pour ce niveau de blonde, c’est un sans faute.

Golden color with a white foamy head. Aroma of cereals, smells a bit sour. Huge metal taste. A dissapointement.

Alusmamuts (1164) - LATVIA - APR 19, 2015
Dark brown, almost black with medium beige head. Sour fruity aroma. Mild fruity taste, notes of dried plums and coffee, followed by roasted bitterness.

Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2014
Abbey blonde with moussy off-white head and fruity character, pale malts, some citrus peel, thinnish body and mildly bitter finish. Not too well balanced, did not like this too much. Forgettable.

miquelcrush (1937) - Granollers, SPAIN - OCT 7, 2014
Típica blonde belga, en aquest cas però li falta una mica de carbonatació i doçor. Típica blonde belga, en este caso pero le falta un poco de carbonatación y dulzura.

AdiBeer (2413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Aroma: yeast, grain malts, light sour. Appearance: hazy gold, massive, frothy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets carry on, get malt, caramel, bread, light sour towards the end. Overall: nice Belgian Ale, but struggles to stand out in this busy style. Bottle from Lidl, Port de Alcudia.
