COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Balance! That’s what we were looking for and that’s what we’ve achieved with a round but light beer with a perfect degree of bitterness. Savour it as an aperitif with friends and tell them how it was born… Following the relaunch of the brewery in 2003, we have visited many breweries and discussed things with many seasoned or debutant brewers. Memorable visits during which the tendencies for our first beer were chosen: we wanted to produce a blonde beer, with too not strong an alcohol percent, with personality but above all remaining well balanced. To prevent it from being overly hopped, we had chosen four American hops, coherent between themselves, and subtly dosed. And to give our beer body, we opted for a malt charge of 100% barley malt, without any other cereal, nor any added sugar. At the end of several months of research, we were finally ready to create a brew in our newly installed brewing room. It took place on 01 May 2004, and Tournay Blonde was born!"

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2007
It’s a golden, very cloudy beer with a nice head. The aroma is sweetish and fruity. The flavour is sweet with notes of fruit, honey, a bit of caramel and citrus, mostly tangerine. It’s an OK trippel. 1596

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 In short: A crisp and highly drinkable Belgian blonde ale. Medium dry and refreshing. Need more…
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed fresh soon after receiving it from the brewery through private importation
The look: Very cloudy blonde body with an initially big white head with low retention
In long: Crisp cookie malts for a light but full body. Bonus points go to the yeast which had this Saison-ish quality to it with a little wilderness going on. Carbonation was a lot (and I mean a lot) of very small bubbles, not aggressive though, just adding to the spiciness tickling sensation. The fruitiness was peachy and I also got some olive flavours (although I’m probably the only one to get it). Spicy hops to perfectly balance the whole thing. Finish has low bitterness and medium dryness. Overall this was dangerously delicious. The bottle has this long text written in Old French that was just a blast to read, provided you can read french. A pleasant surprise. Very hard to come by. For North Americans this may prove to be almost as hard to find as those weapons of mass destruction, except that the Tournay does exist.
