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!

[6203-20140228] Bottle. Mild plasticky yeast aroma. Clear, bright pale yellow body with a long-lasting creamy white head with some lacing. Sweet straw yeast flavour has a lingering aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

Overheard: "I’m thinking it’s not a good idea to do a search of ’Mons Blonde’."

JStax (3232) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Corked and caged 750 ml bottle shared. Pours a clear gold to copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is bready and grainy and a little eatery.The taste is sweet with a bit of spice. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Freaky_tiki (632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours apricot with a thick skin of white foam on top. Taste is apple juice, candy, & dried fruit. A slight mineral after taste creeps in near the end, which is unwelcome as a visit from the dorky neighbours during cocktail hour. Wait, this is 7%? Pretty decent, but doesn’t match other brews locally available from Quebec, Goose Island or Belgium for that matter.

Bière jaune tirant sur l’orangée, remplie de particules en suspensions, très effervescente, et surmonté d’un large col blanc cassé, mousseux et dense, et qui se réduit tout doucement. Arômes de pain frais, de levure belge, de malt mielleux et de fruits du verger (pêche, poire, pomme…), avec d’évidentes épices (poivre, clou de girofle, coriandre, gingembre…), un houblon floral et parfumé, des notes de bananes et quelques effluves d’alcool. Les phénols de fermentation semblent bien présents au nez, outre le clou de girofle et le poivre précédemment mentionnés, on note de trace de fumée, d’eucalyptus et de vanille. Nez bien agréable, très complexe, belle intensité. En bouche, pétillement moyen-fort sur la langue, breuvage plutôt mousseux, belle onctuosité au palais, c’est rond, moelleux et velouté. Au goût, pain frais, léger malt mielleux, abondants fruits du verger, banane, poivre, léger vanille, léger eucalyptus, clou de girofle, houblon qui semble à la fois herbacé, poivré et floral, parfumé, amertume légère, trace de levure belge et d’alcool, finale bien herbacée (houblon ou herbe aromatique telle que coriandre?). Très belle intégration des différentes saveurs, très belle complexité, très bonne intensité. Excellente bière!

rondphoto (2269) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 1, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium orange amber with a persistent white head, lace that circles the brew 1/2" up. Taste is yeasty, wheaty malt that moves through the palate gaining momentum as slight bitters join to keep it on an even keel. A very nice light Belgian Ale, tasty and enjoyable. Recommended.

Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
750 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a lightly cloudy golden colour with billowing white head and some floaties. Aroma is Belgian yeast with sour apple and light spice as well as some graininess and flowers. Flavour is also yeasty with lots of sour fruitiness, gentle clove, grains and some floral hops. Some alcohol apparent. Decent.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Dégustée (bouteille) le 2 juin 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D25C3K416i). Bière blonde pâle limpide. Aucun col. Très très peu effervescente. Odeur de sucre brûlé. Très douce, très sucrée, peu amère. Saveur de ginger ale fade, goûte un peu l’eau. Mince et plutôt flatte, manque de caractère.

Enwiebe (152) - - MAY 9, 2014
5/8/14. 750ml. Pours hazy straw gold with a thin head and no lacing. Mild Belgian yeast nose that is quite pleasant. Interesting malt dominant mouth that is still quite bright. Not boozy. Can you say session Abbey? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
2014-02-28. Crisp yellow body with a large foamy white head. 3++ Aroma is lightly alcoholic, pale malt. 3+ Flavour is moderately alcoholic, pale malt core, dry finish with a lightly floral hop character. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty drinkable but its an okay example of a style I don’t love. Lacks the depth of flavour to cover up the (admittedly moderate) alcohol character.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. Bright and fairly spicy yeast with a little bit of bright peppery spice. Some nice fruity spice with a little bit of soft clean pepper. Clean and peppery. A touch of soft fruit and a bit of clean pepper. Bright and spicy. Really nice.
