"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!"

33cl bottle, several months past best by date but none the worse for it as far as I can tell. Labe says 7% ABV. This Tournay pours a slightly hazy (it’s bottle-conditioned) amber body with an oversized creamy off-white head. The head holds up exceptionally well and leaves remarkable walls of creamy lace on the glass. The nose is a gentle mix of bready malts and largely citrus fruit. Hints of grassy, herbal and floral hops. The flavor is mildly sweet, with some tartness and bitterness. There’s more hop flavor than the nose suggests, at least by the finish. Floral, grassy and spicy notes linger with the biscuity malt in lingering aftertaste. M: Nicely smooth, with a dry, light finish. Satisfying near-medium body. O: Adequately complex with a fruity and floral heart. With a fine mouthfeel and great look, it is also easy to drink given the 7% ABV. More like a Belgian PA than a tripel. Certainly worth trying.

Huh... for a Belgian Ale of 6.7% this is good, don’t get me wrong, but it’s also quite plain to me. The best part about it was the huge head and spiderwebs. The actual beer reminded me of an English blonde, but drier, with a small amount of spice. Fairly fruity, no tartness for me, I think if this were made by a brewery in Saskatchewan or Idaho, no one would be exactly batting an eye screaming "Wow tastes just like a real Belgian!", it’d be a "tick beer" if you catch my drift. Maybe I just woke up on the wrong side of the continent/ocean today.

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle: Medium to smaller vast white head changes slowly into a thicker lacing on top of a light hazy yellow colored beer. Smell herbs and spices, some hops, some flowers, some Taste herbs, honey, hops, hay, flowers, fruits, light bitter, hint of yeast and hint of cardboard and some malts. Aftertaste is floral crispy and some herby hops. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium bit thin body and a creamy texture. Not bad but a bit weak though easy drinkable.

culchiem (2792) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a large fluffy head. Aroma is dominated by yeast. Flavour is sweet, yeast with a lemon zest and tangy on the tongue.

magsinva (923) - Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line - foams up VERY badly while pouring, so pour slowly. Anyway, one the foam disappears, the beer is cloudy orange. Aroma is quiet purfumey which I find off putting. Overall, it’s solid, but not for me.

DiarmaidBHK (3610) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line liquors. Pours golden with a thick white head. Very fragrant nose. Smells almost like perfume. Nice and dry on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nice.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Semi-hazy golden color with a thin frothy white head. The nose is a lot of funky yeast. Lighter bodied, but complex with some caramel malts, crisp citrus and a nice hoppy finish.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, and a good amount of hops for a Belgian beer. Flavor the same, with a little light fruit and sweetness. Average texture. A pretty good Belgian beer.
