Cloudy blonde, thin creamy head. Nose doesn?t bring anything special, mainly sweet malts. Taste is nicely balanced and round with hints of tropical fruits, vanilla, malts (reminds me of a weizen) and some spiciness. Sourness on the tip, a little bitterness alongside and on the back of the tongue. As it warms the bitterness rises. Pleasant mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Cunningham (4929) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
Appearance: Light hazy pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity and light acidic.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet, and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild round fruity, mild malty and yeast. Some acidic notes. Oily texture. Well masked alcohol.
Overall impression: Quite pleasant mild ale. I managed to keep all the chunks in the bottom of the bottle in the bottle. They did not look very inviting.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nett order, Norway

Wasn’t my favorite of the three we had back at BW, but I’m not usually the blonde fanatic either.

ShivanDragon (1812) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Thanks to @Secret Sinterklaas, @Countbeer. Oranje troebel met witre kraag. Aroma van bloemen, citrus, stro, en iets van wijn. Smaken zijn matig/redelijk zoet, zeer stevig gistbitter, licht zuur, matig qua sterkte, matig fruitig, redelijk moutig, zwak kruidig. Medium body, glad van textuur, afdronk bitter. Staat als blond maar krijg hierbij een tripel ervaring.

domienS (132) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2014
Pours a cloudy blond beer white a foamy white head that disapaers rather quick. Smells yeasty, spicy and sweet. Also has a little bit of sulfur. Tastes bitter and leaves a gentle bitter palate. Also has a bit of sweetness in it.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottled 04/01/14. A blonde beer with a little white ring of head. An interesting beer. Typical Abbaye des Rocs meatiness amongst light floral hoppiness and a yeasty element. A bit of off cream ion the nose but otherwise a pleasant interesting Belgian Ale.
