On tap at Bier Bistro. Perfect balance and mouth feel. Dark honey colour with a light lace. Pleasant bitterness that doesnít dominate the beer. Some spiciness on the nose. Alcohol is well masked. Not exotic, but itís easy to see why this is a classic. Itís a sure fire favourite of mine

Keg @ The Fox, Willian. Bright gold with a thin creamy head. Its character is mostly floral with a fruity undercurrent. Gently quaffable.

ABT_S54 (101) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
33cl bottle poured in a Hoegaarden Grand Cru glass. Pours a rather heady blonde colour with a wonderful amount of carbonation. Aroma is quite herbal and refreshing. Taste is more of the same but stronger with maybe suggestions of anise along with other more elusive herbs. Quite a clean finish but without the dryness.

Review according to the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18A), 30 cl bottle. AROMA: light earth, floral and predominant sulphur notes. APPEARANCE: clear deep gold with average white retention. good lacing. TASTE: initial smooth and light sweetness with a dry finish. medium-low bitterness with very subtle esters (orange). PALATE: high carbonation with bubbly sensation and medium body. some creaminess derived from the carbonation. OVERALL: a subtle belgian blonde with dry to very-dry finish but with some sulphur aroma.

jbruner (2012) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a slightly hazy gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is faint, bready grain, light fruits and Belgian yeast. Taste follows, clean and easy, solid blonde.

Flesje@ de Bosrand Arcen. Blonde kleur, niet zoveel kraag. Ruik weinig en proef een bitterzoet, fris bier.

wildbeercat (339) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2014
330ml bottle into a Trappist glass; served cold. Aroma: Grainy, corny, even a little skunky. Not impressed. Appearance: Moderately hazy, golden body with a small, fluffy, white head. Decent enough lacing. Taste: Tart fruit. Apricots. Just a little bit of spicy yeast. Palate: Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Moderate length on the finish, which ends on a spicy Belgian yeast note. Overall: A nice Blonde. The aroma put me off quite a bit, but itís a nice example of the style. Definitely a bit more fruit than spice in this one.

AdiBeer (614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Aroma: bread malts, fruity bouquet. Appearance: clear gold, small white head. Taste: light to medium sweet. Palate: sweets open up, some hints of alcohol, fruity malts, average-long finish, quite pleasant. Overall: good Belgian Ale, bit flat on aroma, but palate is very nice. Pint at Frenchyís, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Very Belgian sweet aroma, hard to evaluate appearance as from the bottle (will h r to rerate this). The taste is also rather sweet and Belgian, maybe a mix between a Grimbergen and a Leffe. Nothing exceptional for a Belgian beer, I would are it regular..
