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.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden/yellow colour with a small head and loads of carbonation. Smell is very sour, but nice. Also some fruits there like lime and apple. Taste is also sour and has some good fruityness there balanced well with the sourness.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle. Golden with billowy white head and abundant lacing. Yeasty bready belgina style aroma, some banana and spice. Spicy flavor profile with the expected belgian yeast character. High carbonation gives a overly crisp bite easily mistaken for bitterness, hotness or acidity. Drink this at cellar temps. Bite settled down once it warmed some. Very solid beer and adequete supplied with alcohol which is hidden well.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2005
This one is tough because I’ve had different experiences without. However, let get on w it. Golden appearence, average head. Fermented pea-ish aroma with a delicate and semiintertwinedscent of tropical fruits. It goes down easy and leaves quite a nice yeasty feeling in the mouth.

Bottle 300ml. Pours pale golden, clear, rocky head. Aroma: old socks, corn, earthy, hint of spices. Taste: bread, some alcohol, earthy notes, sweet fruits, spices. High carbonation. Not an impressive blonde.

mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Cloudy blonde color. Big head after a moderately rough pour. Bananas, alcohol, and some spiciness in the aroma. Not much hop aroma at all in mine. Slightly sweet, slightly malty, banana, yeasty flavors. Medium-to-light bodied. A tad watery. This is a nice easy drinking beer. I was a little shocked to see 7% ABV -- it doesn’t seem like it, even for a Belgian.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Poured orange with a four finger head and a very strong carbonation. There was not a whole lot to the aroma, generally slightly malty. There were some complex peppery, and citrusy notes, mostly orange. The beer is quite dry, and there is a mild hopiness but only a moderate bitterness. The alcohol comes through slightly but not overpowering. Enjoyable.

I had this courtesy of my great friend and housemate, MereLikesBeer:) This was a surprisingly good beer, as I’ve seen it pretty much everywhere, and just never thought to give it a try. Well, I’m glad I did! It almost reminds me of a mild Duvel. The carbonation is spot on, and there are hints of citryus, and some nice subtle warming on the finish. Very good table beer, and lovely for this time of year. Cheers!

sfuen03 (357) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 29, 2013
Deep gold sparkling body. White, average size head, diminishes quickly into a compact wide film. Aroma is yeasty, sugary and lemon. Nice mouthfeel, carbonation is high, warm and a little bitter in the finish. Taste is sweet, yeast, citrus, floral.

seritomi (356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 13, 2015
Sötétsárga, a habja sok és fehér. Szép. Illata fanyar, száraz, élesztős nem annyira arcba ugrósan apátsági bár a címke azt írja. Kukorica, méz, ázott kenyér. kevés komlóval. Íze egyáltalán nem zavaróan édes, közepesen testes de alkoholos. a komló ízében már erősebb. Nekem olyan mit ha átcsengés lenne a Heineken élesztője és/vagy komlója között. Tehát gyanús a lé! Azért jobb mint az átlag.

ALIBALI (356) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Riecht schon extrem nach einem Tripel und auch der Trunk deutet dann (anfänglich zwar etwas eigenartig mit seiner nur im Kopf stattfindenden Süsse die sich dann relativ schnell als recht herb erweisst) auf ein tripeliges BSA hin. Trotzdem oder vielleicht gerade deshalb ein solides und schmackhaftes Blonde. Aus nem Carefour in Belgien, ca. 1,50Euro das kleine Fläschchen.
