MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Draft. Blonde colour, white head. Yeasty, lemon aroma. Faint bitter taste. This beer is nothing special, just an ok beer. Goes well as a thirst quenching session beer.

This was the first beer I had in Belgium so my notes were not yet skewed by the likes of the trappist blonds or dozens of other delicious offerings. The beer pours blond/hint of amber w/ a nice creamy white head. The yeast doesn’t overpower and the beer is very drinkable. More of a "cater to the masses" blond than a traditional example.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle. Clear yellow, medium fluffy head. Aroma is malt, medium hops. Quite citrusy. Taste is moderately bitter. Quite drinkable but really average. Felt like a mainstream blond.

mike_77 (3408) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2007
Golden blond colour. Mild aroma with some yeastiness coming through. Flavour is quite bland. It’s a bit dry and a bit yeasty. Overall it’s mediocre and not very easy to drink.

Furseth (1981) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2007
Drought at The Rover-Göteborg! Yellow clear colour, with a flat head. Aroma is jeasty,citrus,grazyand dust, with some alc in the end. Flavor is almost the same here, medium body, with a typical jasy,citric medium finish. Ok, but not so interesting.

Rating 1049. (Beer listed on menu and on glass as "Witbier - Beir Blanche - my rating should probably go here but if not please notify me and I will move it) On tap served in a trappist glass at this nice little cafe 1 block north of the Louvre in Paris. Hazy lazy medoum brightness golden with a medium sized long lasting foamy white head. Nose is strong with lots of yeast, malts and grains. Taste is more earthy, more yeasty and a lot of grain and piney hops. A good beer in a great city. The experience is what made this beer.

ALLOVATE (2471) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle, own flute glass @ De’ Pub, Brugges Belgium.
Sparkling, bright amber body that was well charged with fine streams of carbonation that erupted up to a firm, 1½", rocky white head of foam that laced wildly down the glass. Woody, piney and malty sweet aroma that was full and edged by a lick of tangy marmalade and some alcohol spice. Similar in the mouth with some dominant sweet, toffee and biscuity malts balanced by husky grains, tangy fruit conserve and a spicy, peppery backdrop. Bitter on the swallow, good length in the malty aftertaste with hints of vanilla and straw. It actually comes off refreshing. Nice firm body, quite light in carbonation, prickly, and creamy in the back. Quite liked this, as far as blonde’s go this is in a separate field altogether. Nice balance, tasty and quenching. A solid Belgian ale. (33cL, no date stamp, labelled Brugse Blond)
