COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with naturally-pure esker water, Mons Abbey Blonde is brewed from Pilsen and Pale Ale malt, hopped with Styrian Gold hops, and Saaz hops give it aroma, with a classic yeast from Belgium. Before you open a bottle, chill it to around 43°, and then tilt the glass and pour, allowing a nice head to form. Reserve the final ounce and pour it into a shot glass, yeast and all… and decide if you or your guest gets the flavorful brewer’s yeast. Mons Abbey Blonde is delicious with lighter foods, such as chicken, salmon, salads, and Monterey Jack cheese. For dessert, try it with apricot or orange cake, or any citrus custard tart. Salut!

UXO (1304) - CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (5/5) Aroma: banana, apple and pear, yeast, bubblegum. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and mildly warming finish. (3/5) Reasonably authentic Belgian-syle ale, with lots of yeast-derived character. The apple note is almost but not quite brown apple, and the flavours linger in a not entirely desirable fashion, but overall it’s a fairly decent example of the style. (14/20)

cattaneopapa (255) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
750ml bottle from the BeerStore. 7 % Alc./Vol. Pours an opaque deep gold colour with 2 finger of lasting white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and some ripe banana and a hint of grapefruit. Taste matches the aroma. It has moderate strength but retains some Belgian complexity. it’s pretty much a watered down version of Duvel. This could be a perfect summer beer for the Belgian beer lovers.

czar (7040) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
pours hazy bright gold with a very nice creamy white head offering good retention and lacing. pale spicy maltiness, sweetish toasted bread crumbs, peppery pear fruitiness, minty and floral hops, noble grass, hint of sweetness - golden candi and golden raisins; very chalky, metal traces. bright carbonation, light body, drying grassy-woodsy-spicy finish. classic and genuine pale belgian ale. surprising, really.

Mlarcheveque (8) - - APR 16, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Belle couleur dorée. Une mousse blanche, épaisse et chargé d?arômes. Qualité-prix plus que raisonnable et disponible presque partout.

Cartoonkhaki (1231) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Midway between good and bad. Body is golden yellow with off white puffy head. Hardly any notable aroma, perhaps light straw? Taste is sweet... overly sweet which I find makes the body syrupy. There is a carbonated kick to it, light alcoholic hints. Some fruity elements; I find light banana.

jgb9348 (5472) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Golden coloured body with a nice, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of honey, yeast, bananas, bubble gum and a touch of coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Very noticeable honey and yeast flavours up front with a big effervescence and a strong grassy and malt quality from the wheat, right behind. Aftertaste shows a bit of sweetness from the honey, but this is a large wheat and yeast flavoured beer. Overall, a nice beer with a good yeast quality and complexity, yet still available at a convenience store! I sampled this caged and corked 75 cL bottle purchased from a Couche Tard in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$7,09 sampled in my hotel room a few minutes later on 13-February-2016 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

RhetoricalAns (778) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Straw-golden pour, tall sticky white head. Sweet honey ans cereal grain aroma, some lighter yeast notes, some fruit banana. A good Belgian ale, nice malt, not as complex as some.

It’s OK. For the $7.5price for a quart I was expecting more. Cloudy golden yellow color. Light head that sticks around.

___Steve___ (69) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
Dark rich sunburnt straw colour. Unfiltered and lightly carbonated body. Giant bubbles in the thick sturdy head. Powdered sugar aroma and spiritus oaky notes. Smooth, refreshing approach, crisp first taste, complimented by a slightly oily mouth feel. Honey flavor with nutty and baked bread notes.

Franckg (920) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Robe blonde surmontée d’un fin col de mousse blanc. Dentelle aqueuse et mince. Arômes de malt de lager tirant sur le pils, maïs sucré, miel. En bouche, j’ai l’impression de boire du maïs en crème. Bien maltée, grains de céréales sucrés, miel. Un arrière goût de pilsner. Pas mon style.
