Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.
A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

330 ml bottle - pours a slightly opaque oney colour with a one-finger white head. Very nice aroma of spice, yeast, citrus, and some banana as well. Almost Wit-like in the nose. Flavour full of yeasty spiciness and very dry in the finish. A certain orange-peel spice in there as well. Yes, eminently drinkable as the deScription suggests, though at 6.8%, that could get dangerous......Not hugely complex on the palate, but a very enjoyable Belgian.

A quite clear beer with a smallish head. Aroma is of oranges, cariander and yeasty esters. The flavour is nice and rather hoppy for a blonde. Very balanced notes of citrus, yeast, malt and hops. A little bitter. Fine and straight to the point.

When I had removed the metal that holds the cap it exploded right up my face! It should come with a warning label! Too much carbonation in my opinion! No bottle should explode like that when you are just holding it. the aroma is yeasty and perhaps a bit fruity, the flavor is similar especially yeasty - not the best blonde I have tasted, but still a good one. Remind me of witbier.

KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle-Memphis. TONS of carbonation! Big white head that stuck around for the duration. Flavor was sweet, bready, yeasty, and warming to the stomach. The bottle was noticably heavier than a typical non-twist bottle.

Defreni (2869) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2007
Flaske. Udemærket blonde, meget livlig og karbonerende. Kraftig smagende gær, men CO2 overtog det meste.

garthicus (2826) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 17, 2007
(Bought in Dunnes Stores) Pours a cloudyish straw colour with a small but stable head. It has a lightly fruity aroma and a smooth ever so subtle banana flavour with a short and enjoyable finish.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2007
12 oz bottle into a goblet. Beautiful hazy gold beer with ample white Belgian lace. The aroma is very fruity (banana, apricot, pineapple). Taste is dominated by fruit and spices (clove, black pepper). Also a note of clover honey. Finishes dry and just slightly bitter. The best Belgian blond I’ve tasted.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Misty gold with a billowy white head and clinging lace. Invitingly peppery tropical fruit aroma with hints of banana, apple and alcohol. Mellow, fruity and Leffe-ishly spicy with a touch more bitterness in the finish, and a hint of hop presence about it. Superior spicy Blond.

Light banana yeast aroma not over powering. Hazy golden color with a small white head and fizzy. Light malt start finishing with fruity yeast. Slightly sweet with some bitterness.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Absolutely beautiful in the chalice, appearing as mostly translucent and caramel blonde in color, with whipped froth resting an inch thick on top. Aroma digs in with baguettes, sourdough, white cackled pepper, countertop coriander, fresh cotton and a hint of floral like lavender. Flavor builds it out more explicitly, realizing a floral hop bitterness to the stark, sharp, buttery sourdough crust. The cackled peppercorn plays out with untainted dryer sheets and a touch of morning glories. Pils malt base supports the fuller flavor throughout and goes to show just how long ago this style was introduced to take marketshare away from the German lager. Crisp baguette follow-through, allowing the full flavor to entwine the tongue with bakery implications amidst the ample bittering display.
