piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
On draft at Cambrinus. Dark gold in colour with strong carbonation. Quite spicy on the nose, with elements of sandalwood, spicy yeast, and sugary malts. More exotic spice flavors in the mouth, along with cereal grains, a bit of malted wheat, banana, and booze. Moderate body. Above average overall.

thewolf (11237) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2009
Tap @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brügge.
Pours clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Great lacing and lots of bubbles in the liquid. Aroma has apples, sweet biscuits and yeast. High carbonation, great mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit dry, good pineapple and oranges take over. Leaves some room for yeast, a buttery touch and light tartness. More like a tripel in taste than a blond.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2008
Tried on tap at Cambrinus brasserie way back when I visited Belgium. Bright gold body with a good size head. Banana on the nose that didn’t really last, cloves more in the taste with an almost medium body.

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Tap at Cambrinus. Strong wheat malt aroma with light astringency. Pale yellow-orange color with small head. Dry wheat malt, peach, and alcohol aroma. Very nice - like being in a wheat field in the summer.

bhensonb (11509) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Tap at Cambrinus. Brassy gold color with a fine white head. Aroma of a light tripel - kandi, malt and hop. Near medium body. Smooth carbonation. Subtle interplay of light malt and floral hop. Alcohol slightly noticeable. Finishes dry with bitter at the rear sides of the tongue. Could be high alcohol - not sure. (but now I see it’s 7%).

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at Cambrinus. Brugge, April 2008. Not very blond - more of an orange/amber with a lasting fluffy head. Sweetish and a bit sticky. Slightly herbal with a touch of hot alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Quite weighty mouthfeel for a blond. Not really my thing.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
Draught at Cambrinus in Brugge. Sweet clove and coriander aroma. Hazy golden colour. Nice, big stable white head. Quite flavourful for a blond, a bit sweet with some coriander.
