KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a murky gold with a light brown hue and a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly down to a thin film with a small collar, which did create some fair runny lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty doughy yeast with notes of apple, pears, banana and a hint of spice. The taste was very malty with a nice fruity ester from the beginning, and then progressed with a strong yeast presence and a mild spicy bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow, with a mild alcohol warming sensation at the very end. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a ticklish carbonation. Overall this was a somewhat light Strong Ale both in body and in flavor, although it does offer an exceptionally smooth drinkability...

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
750 ml bottle from BevMo Escondido. Pours cloudy gold with minimal head and slight lacing. Aroma of grain (wheat), some spice and earth. A good solid Belgian Blonde Abbey Ale, nice balance of sweet, bitter, and sour, with a tangy aftertaste. Some floral and grass, well crafted ale, would revisit.

Alengrin (3029) - BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2014
The original Saint-Martin abbey beer, to which the qualification "Blonde" was added in 2007 when the brown version was born. Yeasty, estery blonde beer with moussy head, somewhat thinnish body, sweetish malts, spicy yeastiness, medium bitter finish. Very ordinary and not very balanced, but may have improved since then so I plan to re-rate this.

superspak (3236) - Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2010. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, honey, bread, light clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, honey, bread, light clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, light banana/clove, honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Belgian blonde ale. All around good robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. I felt like yeast ester flavors were a bit restrained and could have been bolder. Otherwise a nicely enjoyable offering.

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 20, 2014
Feels very light and quite thin for Belgian. But anyways - it kept pleasant characteristics of style. Light malty with pleasant fruitiness, light yeasty, some spices, coriander. Sweetish all the way. Finish is bit too thin
