COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

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 brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

A slightly spicy blond belgian with a nice head and color. Didn’t have a great deal of depth, but the flavors were good.

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 25 cl bottle 6, 7% alc. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Starts sweet and fruity and evolves with aromas of banana, citrus fruits, yeast and floral hops. Medium bodied. Nice hoppy, bitter finish. Nice blond but a bit too acidic before it gets some air.

12oz bottle, 6.8% abv. Pours hazy golden with big long lasting white head and thick lacing. Beautiful in the glass. Sweet yeasty aroma. Sweet fruit and pale malts carrying to a hoppy, lightly bitter finish which is slightly metallic. A bit spicy and sharp. I like Belgian blondes and this one does not disappoint, tasty and satisfying. The alcohol is hidden but detectable, adding to the flavor profile. Purchased a six pack for $9.49 at Broudys, Orange Park FL. Excellent!

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2005
Sweet fruity body and finish is slightly cloying because it doesn’t totally integrate, maybe lacking acidity. Banana and tropical and pale malt aromas. Decent, easily found menu choice.

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Bright honey gold color, with a frothy white head, leaving good laces, sweet pale malt, fruity, grainy, yeasty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with fruity notes of citrus fruits, marmalade accent, hint candied clementines, with a melow character, leading towards a sweet fruity and hoppy finish.

iammadeofjelly (192) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2005
I had a pint, yes a pint, at a place in france not realising the percentage, and the fact it cost about £6, ah those silly ’euros’ you spend willy nilly. It was fairly good, not knowing the % made me get drunk really quickly. The taste kinda lingers in your mouth in the morning though, which is bad.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a TON of floating protein and/or yeast chunks and a huge fluffy white head. Aroma of clove, banana, lemon and floral hops. Flavor also has notes of clove, banana and lemon plus yeast, spices, orange, sweet malt and some hop bitterness at the end. Pleasantly sweet and nicely balanced. Alcohol content is extremely well-hidden. Medium bodied and the carbonation is a bit too lively and prickly for my personal liking. Great head retention. Overall, a very tasty, refreshing brew.

bottle from cairo liquor store. aroma is grainy, with some mild belgian yeast funk. golden-clear, with persistent small tan head. flavor is medium-body, big malt backbone, with some booze and a slightly sweet finish. good, but not great.
