COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered/Bottle conditioned
A standard barley beer certified as containing less than 5 ppm of gluten after brewing.
ATTENTION: This entry is for the Bio and Bio-Gluten Free (now superseding the bio version). The gluten free is labeled with a small ’gluten free’ mark on the label.
Though this beer has been separated from the Blonde Bio, there is no evidence that the recipe has changed, so it is likely that the beers are the same. Do not assume that this will be a new beer, as the beers may be merged in the near future.

beastiefan2k (3278) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2015
33cL stubby bottle. Bottle date notched as March, 2014. So, about 20 months old. Poured into Courage Imperial Stout tulip/snifter. No gushing like the Triple. Medium strength head, light lacing. Golden color. Aroma is lightly honey Belgian malts, very airy, and very light dough. Moderately vigorous carbonation that cleans the flavor, which is lightly biscuit, Belgian cookie dough - light, and faint fruity ester. A pretty light yet felt beer. Damn good line of gluten free beers, maybe. Not bad for a 99 cent bottle on the discount rake.

F: huge white, long lasting. C: hazy golden to hint of amber. A: malty, sweet tones like honey, orange, yeast. T: 0,33l bottle from Carrefour in Brussels, malty, some caramel, honey, grassy hops, dusty, medium body, average carbo, some medicinal tones but it is ok for gluten free, white sugar, very good taste for the gluten free beer.

maekchu (3262) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Yeasty, estery nose, some peach maybe. Hazy honey color, fat fluffy pocked white head, some lace. Medium-strength peach, something like bacon (!) in mid palate, thin small sweetness in finish. Medium body. Hmm.... decent, I suppose. The mid palate thing is weird. Not terribly tasty or interesting. Good for a gluten-free brew.

Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is straw. Taste is dry straw and bread, cardboard, paper. I am not convinced.

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2015
330 ml. bottle sampled. Purchased @ Het Natuurhuis. BBF 05/18. Hazy orange, solid fluffy white. Nose is lightly metallic, big paper presence, paper-like malt, light yeast, faintly mineral, a bit watery,… Taste is touch watery, orange peel, some pepper, white sugar, light paper, touch fruit with some paper, yeast, spice, some mineral water,… Body is tad watery with some mineral water, some yeast,… Quite a strong paper taste but overall still quite decent for a gluten free Belgian Ale. A good option for people looking for a gluten free offering in this style.

rdb84 (500) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Nice honey pour, slightly murky, strong carbonation generous soapy and dense foam head. Strong sour, yeasty aroma typical for this style. Grains, hint of lemon, hay. Overall a nice balance. Metal taste, develops towards a sour, grainy taste that best resembles oats, pasta. Relatively neutral, slightly dry aftertaste. Not bad.
