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!"

bhensonb (13821) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy gold with a 4 finger foamy white head. Aromas of citrus, yeast/spice, and slight kandi. Near medium body with very foamy carbonation. Flavor is mild everything - and it comes out flavorfully near sour. So citrus, yeast/spice and a little pale malt. It’s not a heavy tripel. But it drinks really well. Tripel for everyman.

mcberko (13227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is dominated by yeast and wheat notes, with some light clove and candied sugar. Flavour mirrors the nose almost exactly, with the yeast dominating, with some notes of candied sugar, wheat and clove. Very high carbonation, though easy drinking nonetheless. Solid light Belgian ale.

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.
