JDBaker11058 (1844) - Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Appearance: clear coppery pour with a thick white head; pours much dirtier on the second go ’round. Aroma: citrusy and yeasty, almost like a tripel, with a bit of funk and and white pepper. Taste: some honeyed cereal grains, grassy hops, a hint of metal and aspirin, whole peppercorns, and slightly floral hops. Finish: dry like champagne, with a lingering herbal bitterness. Notes: Not a bad dirty blonde. Drinkable palate, if slightly forgettable flavors. Hops were not prominent, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Golden body, white head. Aroma has belgian yeast, some fruity hops and spices. Flavour has grainy side. Odd.

Hopverdju (562) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
Goudblond bier met wit schuim. Geur: mout, granen en een storende geur van gegist gras. Smaak: wat bitterig. Wat sprankelend koolzuur. Voor de rest, gewoon teleurstellend.

Evilman (75) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 9, 2016
Well, I don’t understand the rating here. I found this one rather bland, not exciting in any way and with close to no aftertaste. Alcohol is too much present in mouth despite its rather low level, resulting in a boring degustation. It’s okay for casual drinks outside, but not much otherwise... PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Chimay Goblet , Golden/Ornage pour , yeasty esters and bready malts in the nose and flavours . A dry kiss of bitterness . A decent Belgian for a Low Boost equivalent !

knasputte78 (521) - SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
Ljus och klar med ett stort skum. Jäst och rätt anonym doft. Smaken är snäll med jäst och lite humle. Lite mesig ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Pours clear golden colour with a frothy head. Semi sweet, slightly malty. Belgian yeast on the nose. Nice.

Graham77 (412) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2016
330ml bottle. Marks and Spencer. Typical Belgian style blonde ale, made in France though. Aroma is sweet malty, grainy, yeasty and spicy cloves. Good body. The taste follows the aroma but maybe not quite as good as I was expecting.

Bottle - pours gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity, soapy and yeast. Taste is bit of clove and spice which goes into a lingering finish. Palate is a bit thin.

AssKicker (184) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 10, 2016
Une blonde assez typique des bières du ch’nord de par sa rondeur, ses sucres résiduels et la présence en bouche du goût de levur, mais néanmoins dotée d’une petite touche fruitée qui, effectivement, lorgne du côté du litchi. Plutôt pas mal.
