I love this beer and it is a shame that belgian blondes are so underestimated by many beer drinkers and ignored by the beer snobs. This beer pours lovely clear golden with a small head that quickly settles as a vail. The aroma is honey sweet from yeast, flowerish also. Love it. The taste is golden, malty and yeasty sweet, quite clean, but with good backing from descrete hops. Finishes long with slight bitterness. Also the sweetness lingers on the tongue for a while. Nice. Nice texture in the mouth, medium full, and easy to drink. A blonde with character, I don’t care what anyone says.

Beautiful belgian blond ale. Golden in colour with a beigish head. Beautiful fruity aroma and corriander notes. Beautiful balanced fruity flavour and again corriander and some curacao come through. Reminds me of Unibroue's Don De Dieu. Great head retention.

Pours clear and mid-gold with a big, frothy white head that lasts well and leaves some lacing. Quite a faint yeasty aroma with some hops. Well-rounded taste with bittterness predominating. A little plummy fruit in the background. Not the most complex, but highly recommended.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 This beer has a goldenyellow body - hue apperance and a fine white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is acid with a light acid afther tast.

Nice looking blond with good sized white head. Aroma is coriander, light fruits, and fresh yeast. Taste is coriander and fruit with some nice acidity. Medium bodied and carbonation. Nice.
