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!

Bière couleur de miel, à peine voilée et coiffée d’un onctueux col blanc traçant le verre d’une épaisse dentelle. Des arômes racés et floraux de céréales avec quelques notes de poivre. Elle est étonnamment amère et présente peu de sucres résiduels. Elle est de corps solide, moyennement effervescente et offre une texture soyeuse. Elle se termine sur de beaux arômes et un filet d’alcool.

Poured from corked bottle. Aroma of sour citrus. Pours a clear golden with white head. Taste is light sour. Medium body and creamy texture. A nice representation of the Belgian Ale style.

Blonde d’abbaye aux aromes de céréales avec une carbonation bien ajustée. Un collet bien moussant avec une bonne tenue. Biscuité et moyennement sucrée. Du travail bien fait. À déguster en mangeant.

chinchill (2903) - South Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2015
750 mL corked-and-caged bottle served chilled. Pours an effervescent, bright golden-copper color, with thin sparkling white head that had poor retention. Sizable hunks of suspended sediment largely disappeared in the pour but were plainly visible lining the bottom of te snifter a bit later. Limited lacing. Aroma: appropriate for style with bready pale malts and hints of pepper, banana, coriander, and apple cider. Flavor: lightly sweet; moderately fruity, with hints of white pepper, banana, coriander, apples, yeast, apricots and pears. The hops are faint and grassy, becoming obvious only in the aftertaste. Feel: Near medium bodied with lightly prickly carbonation.. O: Mons Abbey Blonde is a good, straightforward Belgian blonde ale at a good price point. Worth trying.

quite carbonated brew with a golden orange colour with a bit of cloud. belgian yeasts, a bit of bread, some lemon but overall quite quiet for the style.On the palate it is smooth, some tartness but yeasty flavours dominate. Decent, fairly medium bodied and easy drinking.

Decent drinking blond a good beer to have at a meal. Yet nothing extraordinary about it other than decent moderate yeast and bitter finish.

Gethinbeer (2284) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Honey aroma with hints of spice. Sweet spicy malt flavour. Nice tangy bitterness, syrup honey texture. Too sweet for me but pleasant enough.

[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’."

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 (755) - 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!
