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.

Caramel and hay, dough. Amber color, cloudy, big white head, yeast. Medium bitter and sour, long aftertaste. One of the best gluten free beers for me.

Rich golden color and a 3/4 inch head that holds. The head is foamy and bright white and the ne’er bubbles brilliantly. The aroma is complex with earthy tones, grass, malt and medium-rich yeast. The head is crisp, aptitude and refreshing and the flavor full and complex. Its a full bodied full flavored mixture of mostly Belgian yeast shadowed by some refreshing malt and orangepeel and lemongrass notes. The lacing is thick and blanketous and the brilliant white color of it screams refreshment. I can’t believe this beer is gluten free. It has got to be the best I’ve have. Its all about the yeast. They can add all those flavors back removed by the barley and/ or wheat. Cheers!

Dobre piwo lepsze niż wersje bio. To bezglutenowe wydanie jest powiewem świeżości i smaku. Ładna spora piana, mętność i wyraźniejszy smak. ładnie się do tego prezentuje w tulipanie.

I am about as enthusiastic about this Blonde beer as I am with the Brunehaut’s other biological beer, their triple. I love it. It has a very rich and full taste.

emacgee (4367) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a soft slightly hazy straw blonde with a profuse and crackling white head. Nose is very zesty and spicy/peppery. A tad skunky/musty with an odd off character. Estery. Dry and light bodied, very light bodied. Fruity with some phenolic spicy character. Peppery.

erickok (4250) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 26, 2012
Light orange, very clear body and fizzy head. Grain field, classic hops and some farmhouse action. Medium carbonation and foamy mouth feel. Solid amount of bitterness. Bit of warmth in the back. Gets an extra point for being all organic. A solid brew but not too special in the Belgian ale category. Still well made and not too high in alcohol. Better than the not gluten free version, which is a nice accomplishment.

0.33l bottle. Hazy golden color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is spices, mostly coriander, wheat, yeast and fruits. Taste is moderate sweet. Medium to full body and average carbonation. Overall its nice and interesting beer, but nothing too special.

For a gluten-free beer it is fantastic, drinks like any belgian golden ale. The yeast dominates.
