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!"

Swaroga (1630) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2013
75cl bottle. A bit hazy, orange with huge white head. NOSE : first is a strike of fruity aromas of orange, peach, lemonade like. Strong aromas of yeast that reveal cottage cheese like notes. Tart with candied ginger. Pepper. SIP : the beer had a medium density body and a creamy texture. The carbonation is strong. Sweet with spiking carbonation. Gets dry in the middle and starts to be moderately bitter. Finish reveals more bitter notes. The flavors behind the sweetness is cookie like with candied fruits. The dry notes make me think of zest. Bitterness has several layers. Herbal and citrus seed like. Aftertaste is zesty. OVERALL : what a great color and amazing head. The aromas are fresh and the taste is just what you need of sweet and bitter. Great balance and amazing drinkability. A must.

Falstaf (53) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2013
Biere blonde qui tire vers l’ambrée. Arôme et goût assez malté, avec une touche piquante sur la langue. Retour légèrement sucré.

imdownthepub (11086) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle conditioned, 330ml at Sandford Park Alehouse, Cheltenham. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to be a malty, fruity beer, a little under flavoured, some vanilla and a hint of banana. Nothing spectacular but fine.

Cybercat (3768) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2013
Strong, yeasty flavor has malty and fruity underpinnings. Pours a hazy solar yellow with a fairly thick and fluffy dirty white head. Flavor is strongly fruity, mainly pear with subtle banana and apple notes, with some malt and yeast in attendance as well. Texture has good fizz, but comes across as on the thin side. A good drink nonetheless.

jabbeloo (100) - Denderbelle, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2013
Amber blond old gold coloured beer with thin foam head. We tasted the 75cl bottle. The beer has a great malty start and a hoppy bitter finish the aftertaste is bitter long and dry. ---Rated By the Belleketels

bartlebier (2381) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2013
Draught@Festival Brassicole Tournai 2012. - strangely oldfashioned new take on a wallonian strong ale: floral, sweetish, with subserving hop bitterness, oily palate and a whole bunch of unnecessary spice coming in to play with more welcome straightforward natural flavours. Hence, too much of a good thing and average.
