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.

lesifflebiere (1350) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Blonde un tout petit peu trouble, avec une mousse moyenne, le liquide lui-même étant mince et odorant (fruits jaunes et acidulés). La bouche est relativement discrète, mais délicieuse dans ce qu’elle offre : fruits, gâteau su citron, belle complexité et belle richesse. L’alcool est bien contrôlé et les levures, puissantes, sont quand même sous contrôle, ce qui est parfois un problème des belges fortes. Un classique qui ne soulèvera pas les foules, mais qui demeure extrêmement bien fait.

tfredvik (1200) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2014
Hazy, medium golden body with a large, creamy, white, long-lived head that ends up as a thin layer and foamy remnants on the glass. The aroma is strong and very Belgian with lots of pleasant Belgian yeast, spices and fruits. Strong flavour of Belgian yeast, spices, fruits, sugar, honey, alcohol and perfume. Light sweet and moderate bitter. Mid-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. Brilliant blonde!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 5 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Pour from bottle, this dark blonde beer is lively with lots of head. Smell floral and alcohol and taste lightly sweet and bitter. Medium body. The finish is somewhat bitter. While not bad in general, not particularly enjoyable for me somehow.

300ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow colour forming a big and very bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of molasses and lingering lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of honey, sweet malts and spices. Quite fruity too. Notes of caramel malts, coriander, candi sugar, grapes and bready Belgian yeasts. Flowery hops. Some notes of bubblegum in the end T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of honey, caramel malts, sweet pale malts, coriander and sweet bread. Fruity. Notes of grapes, flowery hops and bubblegum. Light bitterness. Hops have grassy and a bit citrus profile. In overall, a slightly sweet taste, Belgian style M: Medium body. A bit molasses. Good carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Strong Belgian character [ BA Review @ 7/6/2014 ]

Une blonde d’abbaye classique toujours agréable, manque un peu de rondeur et d’attaque (contrairement à une Leffe dans la même catégorie).

ZodiacM (140) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2014
Goudgeel bier met mooie schuimkraag, weinig aroma, wat moutig, smaak vind ik ook wat vlak, moutig bitter. Weinig memorabel blond biertje.

Very delicate malt aromas with a little bit of toast and caramel. Body is golden but had falls extremly fast. High carbonisation. Medium bitterness but in general flat taste.
