4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: lightly hazy (with yeast) golden pour; huge puffy white head shrinking to a thick creamy cap; tons of thick, shimmery lace. Aroma: pie crust, sweet grains, yeast, citrus, a little white pepper. Taste: crackery, yeasty, slightly sweet, with mellow aromatic hops and a nice bright spicyness. Finish: smooth, clean, slightly sweet (lingering crackery malts) and slightly bitter; subsequent burps are strongly of grapefruit. Notes: Extraordinarily drinkable, with a creamy-light palate and very well-balanced flavors. Perfect example of one of my very favorite styles of beer.

This was a standard blonde Belgian. It had the light malt and Belgian yeast aroma. Golden color with a white fizzy head. The palate was light but full and a little too carbonated for my liking. Nice straw and pale malt flavor mixed with the yeast. Drinkable but not overly unique.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Woah - lots of floaties! Muddy amber with moderate offwhite head that persists. Aroma is Belgian yeast, caramel and a whiff of banana. Taste mostly follows the nose - maybe a bit more fruit and biscuit in the taste. Fair amount of carbonation, somewhat of a crispness here. Overall, a decent beer, but too many great Belgian beers to seek this one out again.

Bottle pours golden and clear with a great head. Retention is not so good, however. Smells of some caramel and malt. Some fruity tastes, again bready malts and a dry finish with a sharp hopbitterness to it, making the beer very refreshing and invites for another one. Not bad, but not particularly impressive either.

Poured a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma fairly muted caramel malt. Watery body, flavour of the malt and some little fruityness.

Great abbey blond ale, pretty clear golden with a thin white head. Bready/cereal malt aromas are to the fore with a nice light fruitiness in back. Starts brisk on the palate due to good carbonation, then follows a very mildly tart centre with some biscuit like maltiness. I get some pear or green apple flavours on the far end of the centre and then a moderately dry and quick finish with a bitterness to keep the universe in balance.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear hoppy aroma with a fruity note. Bready and hoppy flavour with a sourish aftertaste. Not bad!

Pale golden pour, very light carbonation and no head retention. Light fruit and bread notes. Very full flavored and drinkable. Sweet up front but has a pleasant clean finish. Awesome belgian blonde!
