Alengrin (924) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Blonde version of the famous ’bolleke’ Koninck since 2003 but abolished again in 2010. Snow white head, golden blonde colour, malty, bit of butter, orange peel, grassy hops, yeasty, bitterish finish; general flavour profile was not even that different from its renowned older amber-coloured brother.

Erzengel (2531) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
BBE was 2½ years ago… The beer starts smooth, mild and quite hoppy. The mainpart is slightly sourish, hoppy-fresh and very bitter. In the aftertaste bitter aroma with slightly smooth yeast…
--> I have to try this one fresh!! 12/10/11/11

Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2013
Tap @ Bon Viviant, Riga. Clear amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Alcohol, malty, grainy and mild fruity notes in aroma. Slightly sweet, buttery, toffee, malty and alcohol in flavor. Slick mouthfeel. Dead yeast in aftertaste. Slightly messy and off-balance.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de levures fruitées sucrées aux notes sûres (agrumes, abricots très mûrs), de grains de malt légèrement sucrés avec des notes de houblon herbeux et floral ainsi que des traces d’épices (poivre doux) et de miel. Rondeur moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées très légèrement sûres (agrumes, léger de pomme et d’abricots) suivi rapidement d’un goût de grains de malt légèrement sucrés et aux notes terreuses avec des notes épicées (poivre doux) et de faibles traces de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon avec un léger goût de levures fruitées (notes de zeste d’agrumes et de pépins de pommes) et quelques traces métalliques.

corkyrory66 (548) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2012
La De Koninck ambrée est une institution dans la ville d’Anvers, mais la blonde est peut-être encore supérieure.... Une couleur blond d’or. Une mousse bien blanche, onctueuse Arômes superbes de céréales, orge et levure Un volume soyeux et généreux. Très belle prise de bouche sur la céréale, avec une amertume fine en arrière-bouche. Un 2ème goût bien équilibré entre saveur, amertume et levure. Une très belle levure (que l’on peut boire à Anvers dans un petit verre séparé...) Donc du grand art pour une blonde basique (6%) Une vraie blonde belge : soyeuse, généreuse, douce.
