Ochre coloured top fermented Abbey Beer with an abv of 6.7%. The use of Gatinais barley combined with carefully selected hops creates a perfectly balanced, relatively light tasting beer with a fruity malty taste.

bottle brought over by alobar, pours a pure golden color with a huge white head that seems almost solid as it settled down to about a 1/4 layer. lots of apple and lots of yeast in the aroma. flavor has a lot of apple going on, with hints of caramel and yeast, and a very fine carbonation that makes for a very smooth easy drinking beer. nothing negative in the aftertaste, just more of the same apple sweetness and smooth flavors.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2006
Medium, white, coarse head. Clear copper body. Faint aroma of licorice and apples. Deep, sourish taste of again apples with notes of licorice. Quite bitter. Dry, sweetish aftertaste. Complex, yet light and refreshing. Very good!

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 (May 2010) Fairly basic interpretation but I wouldn’t have expected much more. Flavours are driven with spice, corriander and leave quite a thick feeling on the palate. Good for the $$ (4 EuR at Carrefour)

(Dec 2006) Nice creamy snow white head early but settles quickly to leave a thin residual with good lacing. Very clear medium amber in colour. Text book correct nose with a decent lift of coriander. Palate is a slight let down as the flavours never really kick in. Malts and fruit notes are faint and perhaps slightly stale, despite the 6/06 UBD, but do improve as the beer warms up. This is the second so-so bottle I’ve had in the past 4 months.

Pours a light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is lemony with hints of flowers,honey and hops. Taste is lemony with hints of sweet honey and flower resin. A very refreshing summer beer.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 8, 2006
Nice, but could be stronger, it was cloudy and very good in flavor, the foam was great and sticked to the glass.

Poured with average sized white head that showed nice lacing. Nose is of coriander/clove, wheat and citrus, taste is sweet but not too sweet. I am really enjoying this beer. Seems like I am bucking the trend here by giving it such a good rating, but I really enjoy this very much.

kwik-lime (1471) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2005
Looks like a lager but with a good head that lasts well. Touch of honey in the aroma. This is good, not too sweet, well balanced and the alcohol content does not show at all.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 6, 2005
Nose of wheat and wheat, with spicy yeast. The brew pours a clear sparkling honey amber. The titanic dense white rocky head is a work of art and is the reason the brew scores a 5 for appearance. The brew has a heavy malt start combined with a high level of acidity. The bitter finish is intermingled with a fruity alcohol sweetness. The light body is creamy and soft.

Belgian Blondes are one of my favorite beer styles. The best have restrained fruit, spice and a full palate. They leave sweetness to their heavier Triple cousins. This Blonde, however, gets a little too close to being a triple. The palate is thinner than I like (though certainly not too thin) and the fruit is a little too robust. Not bad, but I prefer Witkap or Sterkens for a Blonde.
