3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl from Kingdom Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a slightly hazy dark golden caramel color with a thick and frothy off-white head that settles slowly and provides heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of fresh flowers, spice, bread and yeast. Flavor is malt, bready, yeast, slightly sour ripe fruit and notes of malty sweetness like caramel and honey. Light to medium body with a quick, uninteresting finish. Overall, nice ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clearly golden with a thin, white head. Weak flavor of sweat honey. Light beer in general. Not too crazy about it.

Bottle. Clear gold and sweet taste, just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Goes down nice and smooth though, my favorite grimbergen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served bottled. Barely hazy blonde with a large pillowy head and no yeast sediment. Carbonation is well balanced and subtle.
Aroma is exotic and sweet, pale vanilla and nutmeg, white raisins and a touch of yeasts. Flavor is extremely sweet and bright, reminding me of light caramel and dried peaches or apricot.
Aftertaste was my least favorite feature, leaving my mouth feeling syrupy from the sweetness of the flavor. Definitely a good beer, but if you prefer bitters, be warned that it is very sweet.

Mighty tastey brew, pours a slightly hazey orange-yellow colour with a quite large fluffy head that sticks around for a logn time. very pleasent in taste as well with peace and apricot flavors. Overall, sweet with a supple finish, a modest 6% abv.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,65 l bottle...Clear golden-amber body-small but delisicious lacing head. Aroma is fine with spicey vanilla, citruses and top fermentation-yeast-perfume. The taste is smooth with oily vanilla and fruity/raisins flavour, moderated carbontion, fine hop. In my dream i can brew like the belgian masters...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz bottle, straw color, must not be bottle conditioned- it is polished and has no sediment at all. Sweet malt aroma, fruity yeast. Taste is very sweet, mild hop bitterness- a tripel without all of the alcohol punch. Drinkable, but almost cloying.

Hey a Blonde Ale I actually like! WOOT! This is a nice little ale with a nice head, dark amber color, kinda cloudy, little bit of lacing. Aroma has that not quite done bread smell. Flavor is really good, there is a little bit of that chimay flavor belgian thing going on there that I usually hate but not this time. Good beer I’d get it again.
