UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 I’m surprised that this does not rate higher. This beer represents everything I like about Belgian beer and all of those qualities that American brewers cannot seem to replicate when brewing their own versions of classic Belgian styles. My sample was soft and subtle, with orchard fruit flavors, blunt hops and yeasty notes. Some of the flavors that I find in the great abbey beers like Rochefort. My second sample was no disappointment, but this time I definitely noticed some wild watermelon notes I didn’t get the first time. Great stuff this.

Ljust äppelmust färgad med fällning, ljust skum. Doft: Fuktig källare, jäst, gröna äpplen, halm. Smak: Grönsaks spad, äpple, trä, jord, något här oxå som gör att jag tänker på billig lager.

Pours slightly orange with a thick white head and some suspended sediment. Aroma is a little Funky with lots of orange and banana. Tastes nice. Some vanilla and candy. Slightly spicy and citrus. Not bad at all. Pretty middle of the road Belgian blonde.

Plenty of creamy foam that glued itself nicely to the glass edge. The taste is a standard Belgian with good pressure in the malt as it should be and with a dry fine ending.

Livet är svårt som det är utan att bli lurad av en belgisk öl som med kurvig Chimaykropp får det att rycka i öltarmen och minnen av blöta kvällar att beslöja vardagen. När Valeir Blond lyfter på skumkronan och blottar ett öl som mer smakar flint än guldlockar står man där med lång näsa - fylld av aromer som mest förstärker saknaden efter Chimay. Uttrycket "man vet vad man har men inte vad man får" kunde ha myntats av mig i denna djupa besvikelse, om inte någon annan viktigpetter hunnit före.

Bottled. Hazy light yellow with white head. The aroma is a mixture of fruits and wheat. ThThe flavour consists of fruits and ueast and possibly raisins. It also has a swet alcoholic after taste.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 33cl bottle at BXL East. Pours slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a small head. Lovely beer, aroma and taste of yeast and fruit and hops. Incredibly well balanced. Highly drinkable.
