3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold and hazy with a white head. Aromas are candy, sugar and vanilla with spice and lemon. Flavours are citrus and spice and very dry. Some licourice in there, too. Something a bit different but decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2009 Sampled at Ledig Erf Biermarkt 2004. (On tap) Aroma is malty, spicy and fruity (citrus). Quite fresh nose. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting, white head. Taste is slightly sour, fresh, fruity (citrus), pepper. Som yeast in it. Very decent to drink out in the open at a beerfest.</br>
Previous rating 3.7. Loads of carb this one has. And there are a lot of green apples. 3.7 was way too much for this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow-gold, but with greenish shine; heavily carbonated to good, fluffy snow-white head. Initial sharp C0²/malt nose, going over in more (root-)spicey notes and citrus. Taste is again citrus and rootspices (horseradish - but without the sharpness - laosroot or farchiew. (White) bread in the finish. Medium bodied, slight acidity keeps hanging into the aftertaste. Some alcohol obvious. Saucy blonde, but she has not THAT much to offer. Not too meaty, which is good for Caulier, who are heavy into Rubensianian pastries...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m more into brunettes and redheads, but what the hell...
Pop goes the swing-top, and we begin. Pale dull yellow color, cloudy, underneath a milky white tarp, well-retained. Citric and sour in the nose, with an indefinable, but utterly Belgian funk about it, honeyish and peppery at the same time.
Taste? Sweetness, more honey and green apples, bunked up with citic sour, pears and peach, creating a neat spark on the palate, then softly finishing. An unusual mix, this one, not for everybody, but an intriquing brew to set aswim in the mouth.
Light bodied, but makes a memorable impression, although I can’t say I’m too crazy about it.
Not bad, but not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale, densely clouded, yellowy appearance, good snowy head formation. Fruity, yeasty aroma, apple and pineapple, biscuity malt, mild clovey spice and woodiness. Sweet subtle spicy, fruity palate, light tropical fruits with hints of pepper and cloves. Mildly dry unbtrusive finish. Pretty easy drinking and innocent for an 8%er.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
As Bon Secours Blonde
Nice malty nose, honey, fresh bread, wheaty, with fruity and estery hops. Almost smells like a bock. Hazy pale amber with white foamy lacing head. Medium-heavy watery with light carbonation, warming after. Starts rather sweet, almost too sweet, with heavy malt presence. Like a doppelbock in a blonde’s body. Weird. Fruity estery taste throughout, with very little bitterness or acidity to balance out the sweets. Can taste the 8% abv for sure. Sweet vaporous after.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lively hazy yellow to shimmery gold in color. Initial head nice and froathy yet dissipated quickly. Slight fruity/acidic aroma, somewhat earthy. The flavor reminds me of a nutterbutter cookie. Overall balance is very good.

yeasty nose, sugar & alcohol in first sip, strong malts are sugary and cookie-like. Some strange buttery flavor in the finish.

Unfiltered and complex overall. Sweat and yeasty taste and not bitter for my taste. Nice looking and pleasent aroma. Great sipping beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cool bottle with the flip open top. Gigantic pillow-like head on top of a cloudy yellowish body. Yeasty, bread aroma. Sweet malt taste with a hint of bitterness in the finish. This stuff is beautiful to watch.
