Excellent Belgian blonde. Light and fruity, the head on this what MASSIVE and very frothy. Very nice blonde color, with a medium body. It started a bit yeasty but as you get into its various fruit flavors, most notably grapes. The grapyness lends itself to a nice finish, a bit dry, almost like a German Reisling (white wine). One of my favorite Bel. blondes.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Hazy golden coloured, huge head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, pretty bitter flavour and finish. I recently tried a 5 year old version (bottled 0.7 liter) and i must say this beer really improves a lot with ageing, way more complexity (fruits, yeast) and less bitterness. Rating reflects the aged (5 years old) sample.

I must first mention the head, which is unlike any other I have ever seen. It is RIDICULOUSLY fluffy. Moving on, its blond color and translucent quality were both very impressive and as with all good beers, it tastes as good as it looks. The fruity and spicy aroma are almost as appetizing as its taste, which was quite complex, with only plums and green grape standing out. Light bodied, crisp, and smooth, although less so than some darker belgian strongs, due to the increased carbonation. Amazing maltiness for such a light colored beer.

Nice fruity aroma and spicy, fruity flavors. Seemed to be a little too carbonated (gave me too much gas). Had a little sharper bite than the Victory Golden Monkey that i also tried last night. I liked em both.
