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.

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.

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.

My Bottom Line:
Deep honeyed cereals are met by herbal hops, as candied bananas surf expansive bubbling for a Belgian-style Ale loaded with personality.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A generous head of foam sticks to the gleaming golden.
-This one has an almost voluntarily oxidized rusticity to it that is fascinating to me.
-Bread dough is found underneath it all as well.
-Very mild minerals are also there somewhere.
-Malts are beautifully developed.

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 (3344) - 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 (2400) - 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’."
