COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2007
330ml bottle, 6.8% a/v Well carbonated gold colour with a nice lacy white head. The aroma is malt, yeast and a bit of spice. Taste is VERY alcoholic, not nice. Hop aftertaste is good but does little to fix the alcohol sting.

mar (5156) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
very pale yellow color on the pour with very small lacings. no smell due to being in a bar. smooth taste with no aftertaste at all and not too thin on the palate. quite impressive for a light colored beer.

Svesse (7683) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2007
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 28 Sep 2007) Golden yellow colour, cloudy, with huge white head. Fruity, slightly yeasty nose with apricots, orange peel and spicy hops. Fruity taste with notes of apricots and spicy hops. Sweetish, actually a tad too sweet for me. Otherwise, a decent belgian blond.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours a semi-transparent golden yellow, lots of carbonation and a thick smooth head that persists. Aroma is faint and not very distinct. Kind of fruity. Taste is a little bitter, and is rather spicy. Kind of jumps back and forth between sweet and spicy. Quite pleasant. Palate isn’t that smooth and leaves a bit of a film.

feedmegarbage (5) - USA - OCT 5, 2007 does not count
This was an interesting find. It was a little sweet, but not over-powering. Hints of citrus (almost orange) more so than a normal Belgian. Honestly it was tasty, and worth a try, but there are other Belgians I would prefer.

KingofCastle (207) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
bottle: Can’t say I’d have this over a Leffe Blonde. There’s all you’d expect here: the yeast, the high alcohol flavour . . . but none of the interesting flavours that Leff has. If you like Belgian ales then go for it.

thomasacross (129) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. Well crafted Belgian blonde. Somewhat characteristic of Leffe in that it balances the fruit/spice of the Belgian witbier with the sturdiness of a 7% ABV ale. I think I prefer Leffe Blonde but this is pretty close. Worth a try!

joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - SEP 22, 2007
pretty standard belgian, emphasizes the clove spiciness over the fruits, fairly clean and not too sweet.

EHSRanders (1971) - Tjele, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle. Clear yellow colour with huge frothy white mostly lasting head. Spicy, malty aroma. Sweet spicy flavor. oily palate.
