Golden orange color with a large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of nuts and light spice. Slightly thin body, but decent malt and nutty flavor.

Oakes (15804) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
Hazy golden, with a very thick head. Very spicy yeast aroma wiht accents of banana, pineapple and coriander. Very sweet, quity spicy but farly well balanced. This is growing on me as I work through it.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2008
750 ml brown bottle at wine frig temperature. Rich aroma of light raisin, like golden sultana. Peach juice color with a fine, fluffy white head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is an odd combination of fruits and spice. Started with a touch of grapefruit, but that passed on to something like mild spiced peach. Light caramel malt. The finish is a bit bland and dry compared to the start, and has some bitter. Each sip is a spurt of Belgian flavor, and then it goes bland. So keep on sipping. It’s a really good drink.

Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Pours hazy orange with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Good lacings. Aroma has some yeast, light grapefruit, soft pepper. Medium carbonation, fine dry and oily palate. Flavour is dry, some cardboard, oranges, yeast, mild malty, a touch of bitterness with some grapefruit thrown in. Not spectacular (especially the cardboard detracts), but nicely drinkable.

crossovert (11398) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
750ml brown synthetic corked and caged bottle. It pours an amberish/brownish/red rather than a blonde. It has a thick white head that leaves a lot of lacing. The smell is fruity, there are some slight herbal hops over that, and a bit of sweetness, it is simple but effective. The flavor has a hint of vegetal, herbal, earthiness, it isn’t all that good. It is yeasty with some fruit, slight hop flavors, and some caramel. A supremely average Belgian Pale. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-29-2010 23:48:21

Poured at the Gulfstream beer fest. A cloudy light amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma is very fruity, spicy, and some hints of yeast. Flavor is yeasty, caramel, apple and spices. Not bad, but not the best Blonde.
